Multi-Format File Playback

The MT-90U loads and plays the most popular music-file formats: Standard MIDI File, MP3, and WAV. You can even change the tempo and pitch of your files, both audio and MIDI. It’s great for sing-along sessions, or for music students who want to slow down fast, complicated licks.

USB Compliant

Equipped with a USB port, the MT-90U makes the file-import process quick and easy. Simply load your favorite songs from a USB memory key or connect external devices such as a USB floppy-disk drive or USB-CD drive.

Wireless Control

Control the MT-90U from across the room with the wireless remote controller, included. The backlit LCD is easy to see from a distance; it even displays song title, tempo, and lyrics of compatible SMF data disks during karaoke sessions.

Travel Friendly

Portable and fun to use, the MT-90U features icon-based buttons and a backlit LCD, making common operations such as playing songs, muting parts, or changing tempo and musical key easy. Its lightweight design and a built-in grip handle make transport a breeze.
