Quick Impressions
» The software is entirely in English. There's not even a lil' bit of Japanese anywhere.

The main menu features the following selections:

• Single Play - Start a session and begin producing
Multi Play - Choose Master or Slave device for the NDS and link up
Data Exchange - Upload or download data wirelessly
Options - Set screen brightness and button configuration. May also view production credits.

» The default set-up shows the synthesizer commands on the top screen while a keyboard is shown on the touch screen. You may swap screens at any time by tapping on the double-arrow icon located on the upper-right corner of the touch screen.

Japanese NDS games may be played on North American and European NDS handhelds. There is no region-coding on Nintendo DS game cards.

NCS Update: July 2, 2008
«©NCSX» NCS opened preorders for KORG DS-10 a couple of months ago and things were hunky-dory as preorders flowed in and interest was high. Last week, one of our vendors warned us that the distribution of the synthesizer-software would be limited to Amazon's Japanese website only. At first, we figured it was a mistake. AQI wouldn't do that would they? We waited for confirmation from another distributor and unfortunately it's true. This means no one else can get it - not Tsutaya, not SofMap, not Family Mart nor Lawson. No one. Except Amazon.
   Our distributor is offering to help us order KORG DS-10 from Amazon directly but that means paying the retail price, taxes, and shipping fees. After crunching the numbers, NCS came up with the new price of US$62.90 instead of US$48.90 when we originally started preorders.

   Due to the change in the product offering, we'll contact everyone by email who submitted a preorder in the past few months to re-confirm their interest at the new price level. We're saddened by the "exclusivity" of KORG DS-10 in Japan but we'll try our best to get it into the hands of musicians and music fans who have preordered with NCS over the past few months. In the meantime, new reservations are welcome for KORG DS-10 which is scheduled to ship on or around July 24, 2008. 

From the Publisher
   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.

   The KORG DS-10 will introduce “stylus music” to the world at the International Musikmesse Frankfurt (Germany).
