KORG DS-10 FOR THE NINTENDO DS SHIPS TO RETAILERS IN NORTH AMERICA
The Highly-Anticipated Music Creation Tool is Now Available in North America
Videogame publisher XSEED Games announced today that KORG DS-10 has started shipping to retailers in North America for the Nintendo DS. The KORG DS-10 is music creation software that combines the superior interface of the Nintendo DS and the design concept of the famous MS-10 synthesizer.
“The KORG DS-10 Synthesizer…[is] not quite a game…yet at the same time, it’s the ultimate game,” said James Mielke, Editor in Chief at 1up.com. He continues, “...the more you invest yourself, the more surprised you’ll be at exactly what you can accomplish with this innovative, groundbreaking piece of software. Keyboard, DJ tool, game? It’s all of these things.”
Other editors agree that the KORG DS-10 revolutionizes portable music creation software:
“The DS-10 produces an outstanding software facsimile, and it also makes superb use of touchscreen interface to capture the feel of using one of these awesome old school synthesizers in person. All fans and performers of music should explore XSEED’s KORG DS-10.”
- Mike Griffin, Play Magazine
“It’s a serious music tool that can create incredible sounds. If your voice goes up an octave at prospect of having a fully functioning analogue synth you can carry around in your pocket then prepare to have your pitch knobs twisted because this really does do everything the iconic synth does, and more.”
- Alex Simmons, IGN
“As a musical tool, the DS-10 has no compare, on or off game hardware. For the electronic musician, this software is a no-brainer.”
- Dale North, Destructoid
“The DS-10 is a sweet little software package for anyone who wants to learn synthesis or someone who already knows but wants to have sort of a musical ‘sketch pad’ on the road.”
- Jacob Lopez, 411Mania
“For those who crave the ability to create music , the KORG DS-10 is a no brainer. Pick it up. For those that find themselves curious, I also suggest you pick it up. There’s enough stuff to do here that you won’t find yourself stopping until the battery on your DS runs out.”
- David Hinkle, DS Fanboy
KORG DS-10 was also recognized as the Nintendo DS winner of the “Special Achievement for Innovation” Best of E3 2008 award by IGN Nintendo.
KORG DS-10 music software is for professional and aspiring musicians alike. 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 recreating the ability to develop high-quality sounds. The Nintendo DS’s touch-screen controls are utilized to the fullest to provide an authentic feel and operability across a dual-screen layout that is unsurpassed in portable music creation. A 6-track/16-step sequencer enables precise control and provides a wide range of musical possibilities, and up to eight DS units can be linked via wireless connection to play together or to exchange sounds and songs.
KORG DS-10 carries a suggested retail price of $39.99 and is rated "E" for "Everyone." For more information on KORG DS-10 and where you can purchase it please visit the website at: http://www.korgds10synthesizer.com.
