'Sounds right' is a weird requirement, because it's suddenly a degree instead of an absolute. Music cards in PCs existed as early as the Apple II in 1978, which is significantly before GUIs were a thing in the PC space (the original Xerox PARC windows stuff was early 70s, but the first computer-generated music was 1951..).
