Product Description

The KORG DS-10 Plus is an enhanced version of the revolutionary KORG DS-10 synthesizer software that was released to critical and retail acclaim for the Nintendo DS in late 2008. The original KORG DS-10 music-creation software, which combined the superior interface of the Nintendo DS with the functionality of the famous MS-10 synthesizer, has been optimized to essentially double the power of the original when used with the Nintendo DSi. The sound sources in the KORG DS-10 Plus 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 DSi/DS Touch Screen controls are used to the fullest to provide unsurpassed feel and operability. This innovative musical tool is perfect for aspiring musicians and professionals alike. In addition to the four analog synth simulators and drum module, a 12-track/16-step sequencer enables precise control and provides a wide range of musical possibilities (only two analog synthesizers and six tracks available when used with regular Nintendo DS). Up to eight units can be connected and played together through a wireless link for a jam session or to exchange songs. This and other features make the Nintendo DSi/DS and KORG DS-10 Plus almost limitless in their application – improved portable music creation performance at an unparalleled value.

Almost as soon as I received my KORG DS-10 in the mail, I picked up a second copy and another DS Lite. Then I heard about the KORG DS-10 Plus and realized that I had been played for a chump since the new version would basically let me do the same thing as two copies, minus the awkwardness of holding two DS systems and wearing two sets of headphones when I was using them outside of my home studio. Naturally, I pre-ordered it as soon as I was able to, and I decided to hold out for the DSi XL to be released so that I could experience its full potential (it's still usable on a DS or DS Lite, you just can't use dual mode, which is pretty much the whole point of this updated version). Now that I've had time to compare the DS-10 Plus to two copies of the original DS-10, I feel like I'm ready to share my experience.

First of all, I'm assuming anyone reading this review knows what they're getting into. There aren't a whole lot of changes in this revision of the DS-10, so if you've already used that one you know what to expect. If not, I've read plenty of reviews that don't quite "get" the DS-10, finding it limited as a loop-based synthesizer lacking polyphonic sounds and a full sequencer. If you were hoping to find those kinds of features, you should probably consider just buying an actual factual piece of audio hardware or a soft synth for your computer. If you're anything like me, the so-called "limitations" of the DS-10 are what make it fun to make music on... with enough creativity and practice you can make a single synth or drum sound sound like several disparate sounds, and you can find clever ways to create transitions between the various patterns so it sounds like more than simple looping electronic music.

This is not a game. It's a fully functional analog-styled synthesizer with 6 tracks (12 on the DSi). I promise that anyone who is familiar with traditional concepts of subtractive synthesizers and related sound design will love it. Anyone who enjoys playing with software like Reason, Massive, etc. or hardware like Moog, Nord will love it. For those familiar with these tools, picking up and using the software will be a snap.

I'd also recommend this to any music enthusiast who has a DS and wants to learn more about sound design for synthesized instruments. It supports many of the core concepts. (See the book "Dance Music Manual" for a great guide on this topic).

There are a few restrictions on multi-player mode. For example, you cannot do sound design on the parts from what I've read. However, you can wirelessly download the software to up to 7 other units! I do have 2 DS Lites and plan to try this feature out. The synth has 4 percussion instruments and 2 analog synth instruments which you can change the design of in traditional ways (more instruments on the DSi).

One thing that wasn't totally intuitive was how to access and edit the patterns; however once I did discover it, it wasn't a big deal. Overall, I was pleased at how well I could just dig in and start designing and putting together patterns and songs. I do find that 6 tracks are limiting for me, but having 12 tracks on the DSi would be great!

I don't plan to write any masterpieces on this, but it's a fantastic way to spin an idle mind on the pleasure of sound design and music creation. Love it!

First, all I have is a DS Lite and this new version makes a distinction between my hardware and the Nintendo DS. 'Dual mode' is unavailable to DS Lite owners and I was disappointed about not being able to find this in any of the ads for the DS-10 Plus.

That out of the way, this is one fun little synthesizer. I find myself lost for hours just experimenting with the synth editing or the fx and how they function with a particular sound or with any aspect of the game.

Having used the term 'game', now would seem to be a good time to burst some bubbles - this is one SERIOUS synth and requires some knowledge of electronic music and song construction. There are preset sounds and demo songs to disassemble and that should be enough for the sharper set. But don't buy this if you expect it to play itself.

The musical weapons at your disposal comprise two full-featured synthesizers modeled on the Korg MS-10 and four slightly cut-down versions dedicated (or not) to drum sounds. On the DS-10 Plus these can be muted and unmuted which I find to be a significant advance over the original. This means a single pattern can serve as the intro, outro, break or any other portion of a song or track just by dropping parts in and out. The delay effect has been improved too - for us delay lovers this alone is worth part of the price.

This is my second Korg DS-10. I had so much fun with the first one that I'm quite pleased that they made a DS-10 Plus and that it adds polish and functionality to the 'workflow' within the device. This is a small but formidable synthesizer workstation that fits in a pocket or purse. Add some ear bud headphones and get lost in the DS-10 Plus world!

visit the blog [...] to find out all you need to know about this product.

I have used this software on an album and currently performing live with it.
for musicians it is really easy to use. you have four kaoss pads, four keyboards, a patch bay for each synth, 2 drum machines, 2mixing boards and 16 patterns that can be added to a song mode.

you do not need this version if you run it on the ds. there is a ds version (korg ds 10). but both work great on the ds and dsi. the difference is this version unlocks twice as much synth and drum machine power.

there is only one way to export-thru the headphone out in real time.

if you have have used fruity loops or a tracker this is for you. if you want to make 8bit noise this is for you.
with the appregiators and the manual anyone can make music on this software (the learning curve can be as steep as you want it to be, meaning you could make easy or complicated songs with this software)
