When PRO-MockingBoard launch to the market, it draw the attention of all the
Apple users immediately because it's excellent sound. This card improve the
weak-point of the original one such as it can drive a pair of 1 WATT speaker,
it enhanced the surround effect, it have extra drum channels and it can connect
to a MIDI keyboard (non-standard).
Some of the musicians or businessman see the potential of the card, they knew
the chance of making money was arrived. So they flood the Golden Shopping
Arcade with all kind of music applications, and the most popular one are the
pop-song data for the PRO-MockingBoard. These special version can have 4 or 5
drum effect for this luxury card. The original Mockingboard can still play the
music but without drum effect. After hearing for the superior drumming effect,
some of the rich guys bought the card and rush to copy these song data, the
song data become the most popular money making resource.
