The unit can use 3.5 inch floppy diskettes. The unit comes with a wireless remote control, cables and an AC/DC adapter. One can record keyboard performance into the internal memory or onto floppy disks and reproduce the sound.

The applicable subheading for the digital sequencer recorder will be 8520.90.0080, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Magnetic tape recorders and other sound recording apparatus, whether or not incorporating a sound reproducing device: Other ...
