Summary: This is fantastic software for the ds. Currently, I have been composing many different styles and the option for sound control is beyond cool. You get 2 ms20 monophonic synthesizers, a mixer, a kaoss effects pad with mapping, and drum rack which is simple but effective. This is sure to become a legend with chip mod, step music, lo-fi, dub, dnb , etc.It sounds quite a bit better in resolution if you use the DSI nintendo console.
Summary: If your someone who is into dance music production or synthesis I would highly recommend this product! This is not a toy, it is a tool. I have had several copies of the ds10 ever since it first came out. I first saw an add for it in Keyboard magazine. It great because of how portable it is. It works well as a sort of note pad for song ideas. You can carry it were ever you go and if you get an idea you can document it right away. It's also just fun to use.
Summary: If you like to mess around with making music but with a nice little twist by using the stylus to actually be even more creative and have more control over making music then pick this up! it should be cheap now but it won't be in the future because I suspect this will become a collector's game/item in the future since alot of Chiptune artists love to mess around with this music program
Summary: I got a Ninetendo DSI Lite for the sole purpose of using the DS-10. I had already tested the newer version of the DS-10 on the Ninetendo DSI XL and knew, for the most part, what to expect. The DS-10, in both its old and new version, is an emulation of the Korg MS series analog synthesizers. It emulates the some of the key circuits of these synths in a digital software version.
Summary: This thing is a blast. I originally purchased my Nintendo DS just to play around with this program. You get two MS-10 style analog synthesizers and a crude drum machine and some effects. The interface even looks like the old Korg hardware. It has some quirks, but it is fun.
Summary: This little thing rocks. It has two monophonic synthesizers based on the Korg MS-20 and a four voice drum synthesizer. It operates in a very logical fashion, with a sixteen by four grid for the drums: if you want the drum to hit there, you fill in the little square. Synthesizer programming is difficult, but there is a significant 'leg up' in the form of preset sounds.
