The Korg DS-10 is a music-creation software for the Nintendo DS that combines the 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 and according to them, no effort was spared in creating these ultra-high-quality sounds. They tell us that 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.

  • World's first music tool software created for the Nintendo DS
  • Two patchable dual-oscillator analog synth simulators:
  • Four-part drum machine that uses sounds created with the analog synth simulator
  • Six-track (analog synth x 2, drum machine x 4) /16-step sequencer
  • Delay, chorus, and flanger sound effects available from the mixing board
  • Three note-entry modes: touch-control screen, keyboard screen, matrix screen
  • Real-time sound control mode via touch-control screen
  • Exchange sounds and songs and play multiple units simultaneously through a wireless communications link


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

The Korg DS-10 will be availible in July, costs 4,800 YEN (30 euro's) incl. VAT and is for Japan only.
