Sound card set composed of the D5531-01 data card and W5531 waveform card.  Expands the SY/TG55 with 64 new patches and 16 new waveforms.  Focus in on synth waveforms.  In particular, "NewroStr" is a great synth string waveform:

C02 Majesty Lush and full synth strings.
C03 Active Early 80's polyphonic analog synth style brass sound.
C04 Heavy Another synth bass sound.
C05 Pluck'n Synth bass from the 80's.
C06 DreamPd String pad.
C07 Noble Nice Baroque strings for scoring.
