A Professional-Grade Synthesizer in the Palm of Your Hand
The ultra high-quality sound sources for the DS-10 come from KORG, maker of some of the world's finest musical
instruments. Korg spared no effort in creating this ultra-portable yet powerful and easy-to-use music software with tons
of the latest features-- and all with the unique accessibility of the Nintendo DS touch screen. The KORG DS-10
Synthesizer gives you the choice of sculpting your own unique sounds with expansive on-screen controls, or starting from
a preset template. With two dual oscillator synth parts and four synth/drum parts, users can create synth and drum lines
using the on-screen touch keyboard and drum pads, or engage the elegant six-track, 16-step sequencer.
With powerful features such as KORG's KAOSS technology, users can add custom modulations in real-time, tighten the mix
with a full-featured mixer, polish their grooves with multiple effects, and create complete songs that they can save on
The DS-10 features a chorus, flanger, and delay parameter that can be applied individually to each synth or the drum
machine, either individually or as a whole. In addition, each of the editable drum sounds can have a separate effect
added to it. Various sound textures are made possible by implementing the two VCO's, three filter types, and more, while
notes can be recorded in the sequencer, allowing for further editing. This broad functionality, combined with patching
functionality, makes the DS-10 suited to even the most avid sound designers.
Intuitive and Easy Use
The sounds made by each of the two analogue synthesizer emulators are modified using virtual knobs, and users can patch
particular parameters for further modification. The user interface is mainly through the DS's touch screen. Notes can be
played using a two-octave keyboard, or through an interface that detects the X and Y position of the stylus on the touch
pad, simulating a KORG KAOSS Pad.
The Nintendo DS's dual-screen touch panel is used to the fullest to provide a feel and operability that is unsurpassed.
Although there are many expert-level features available with synthesizer, the DS-10 can be appreciated by the complete
novice as well as the seasoned professional.

DS-10 users. It is even possible to send session data in advance to your friends, so you can all play to the same tune.
Not only does the DS-10 bring stylus music to the world for the first time, but this robust connectivity allows for
performances and compositions that simply aren't possible on a single Nintendo DS.
The keyboard and KAOSS pad can be played directly with a stylus.
