The 4400 – The Complete Series will be released on DVD on October 28, 2008 in US. The boxset will include all four season, bonus materials and features from the previously DVD releases. (Source: IGN.com)
Suggested retail price is $99.98, but Amazon.com is taking pre-orders at $66.99, which is a steal for a four season boxset.
The 4400 is a great serie and I can highly recomand it.
I came across this DS title when I was browsing Play-Asia.com. KORG DS-10 Synthesizer is as the title says, asynthesizer for DS. I won’t be using it, but acording to the comments on the page, it’s very useful for music people.
KORG DS-10 Synthesizer is a Japanese title and cost US$ 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.
