DS: KORG DS-10 Synthesizer

I came across this DS title when I was browsing Play-Asia.com. KORG DS-10 Synthesizer is as the title says, asynthesizer for DS. I won’t be using it, but acording to the comments on the page, it’s very useful for music people.

KORG DS-10 Synthesizer is a Japanese title and cost US$ 64.90. Here’s the product info from Play-Asia.com:

  • World’s first music tool software created for the Nintendo DS
  • Two patchable dual-oscillator analog synth simulators:
  • Four-part drum machine that uses sounds created with the analog synth simulator
  • Six-track (analog synth x 2, drum machine x 4) /16-step sequencer
  • Delay, chorus, and flanger sound effects available from the mixing board
  • Three note-entry modes: touch-control screen, keyboard screen, matrix screen
  • Real-time sound control mode via touch-control screen
  • Exchange sounds and songs and play multiple units simultaneously through a wireless communications link

The KORG DS-10 is a music-creation software for the Nintendo DS that combines the superior interface of the Nintendo DS and the design concept of the famous MS-10 synthesizer.

The sound sources in the KORG DS-10 come from KORG – one of the world’s top musical instrument producers – and no effort was spared in creating these ultra-high-quality sounds. The Nintendo DS’s dual-screen touch panel is used to the fullest to provide a feel and operability that is unsurpassed, and combined with the sensory input mode at the touch-control screen, this unit can be appreciated by the complete novice as well as the seasoned professional.

In addition to the two analog synth simulators and drum module, a 6-track/16-step sequencer enables precise control and provides a wide range of musical possibilities. Several units can be connected and played together through a wireless link, and this and other features make the Nintendo DS and KORG DS-10 almost limitless in their application – they can take you places that no single synthesizer can.

I went through the list of upcoming Blu-ray titles on Amazon.com, and found some movies worth pre-ordering. Release date and pre-order price is listed. Matrix is very interesting, since it will include Animatrix in HD for the first time.
