Summary: I really had a lot of fun with this for awhile. But as all the games & devices, this, and many more things like it, is now available as a iPhone/iPad app, so it becomes "one less gadget to carry"
Summary: First off, this is not a game. It's a composing/sequencing tool. As such, it does the job well. I would have liked the ability to have more than three inputs (drum, synth 1, synth2), and the ability to play more than one note at a time in each synth.
Summary: I've had my eye on this software for some time, and I finally decided to purchase it--and I am not disappointed one bit. I do not know how to play piano, but I have some music knowledge, so it did not take me long to get some patterns (what the software calls its loops) up and running.
Summary: Somewhere along the line the vintage synthesizer market took off and launched prices for classic analog synths like the Korg MS-10 beyond the reach of most non-professionals. The Korg DS-10 is not a game: it's a digital simulator largely based on Korg's iconic MS-10 synth, packaged for use with the...
Really great sounds, easy to use overall a great idea I hope they make more

Summary: I am satisfied with the Korg DS-10, but that's only because I knew what to expect. I didn't expect the virtual machine to have 8 voices polyphony, or a unison detune feature, or to have more than one effect on at a time. The lack of these conveniences did not surprise me.
Summary: This is the most fun I've ever had with my Nintendo DS. I've had the privilege to own, or work in studios equipped with, some of the finest analog synthesizers to ever grace this earth: Mini Moog, ARP Odyssey and 2600, Oberheim Matrix, Yamaha CS-15, Roland Juno, Korg PolySix, and many more.
Excerpt: As one of the longest established Electronic Musial Instrument makers still in existence, Korg has a well deserved reputation for innovative and practical machines; the DS-10 follows in this tradition in a slightly unusual form. Nintendo ?
Pros: Great as a 'beatbox'
Cons: No polyphony, need n understanding of analogue synths
