Korg DS-10

Korg, Nintendo, and software developer AQ Interactive have announced the upcomming launch of the Korg DS-10, a software emulation of the MS-10 (and then some) for the Nintendo DS. When this news reached me I was totally taken back – a big name in electronic music instruments offically licensing software for a handheld! The DS (particularlly the DS Lite) has already entered the realm of a classic OS for homebrew and commercial music apps and games, but with this announcement it’s locked. Count it among other odd classics like the ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64, and early Nintendo platforms. Hopefully this will also inspire even more music applications to appear for the DS. We can always use more.

 Also worth note – contrary to initial reports, it is scheduled for a world wide release, not just Japan. http://www.ds10blog.jp/?p=35
