А IMFC у IBM уже давно была, оказывается 🙂

[spoiler]IBM Music Feature Card. This board was released from IBM in 1987 in an effort to draw MIDI musicians and game programmers over to the IBM. It cost about $250, and played 8 FM voices. The quality of the FM was much better than the Adlib, presumably since it used a 4-operator FM chip (also from Yamaha) instead of Adlib’s 2-operator chip, and had over 100 built-in instrument parameters. It also had a MIDI port, of course. Trivia: You could put two of these boards in your PC at the same time to get a total of 16 simultaneous voices. [/spoiler]
