There's a pretty good sequencer in there (more advanced than DS-10). But pattern mode I don't know....

i like how in the press meeting everyone went crazy-go-nuts over NOTE DRAAAAAAAGGGG! OMGOMGOMGOMG

seriously though... blown away. the DS-10 gave me the impression that the DS hardware had some inherent limitations for sound generation, but seeing the sound fidelity AND polyphony AND reverb AND the sheer number of soundbank presets??? ALL together???

i wonder if it'll have the ability to sync with the DS-10 in any way...

Seems like a General Midi composing device on steroids. Pretty much a fan already...

Wow, this year!

The original DS-10 was also an amazon exclusive in Japan, but I had no problem importing it from Play-asia (at a more expensive price)

Sync mode with ds-10 would be sweet and please, please...being able to save patches and songs to the SD card on DSi.

I really hope so. You can try to message sanodg on twitter about it and convince him, there's some months left!

being able to save patches and songs to the SD card on DSi.


Forget it! Nintendo won't allow.

Korg M1 Keyboard Workstation, Reborn on Nintendo DS

The original M1, definitely larger than a DS. Photo (CC-BY-SA) Kevin Phillips.
Having made their own DS-10 instrument, Korg and DS developer AQ Interactive yesterday presented something new for the handheld Nintendo. This time, they’re revisiting one of the all-time greatest hits of digital synthesis, the Korg M1 workstation.

Markus Schroeder tips us off that the M1 will be the next release for the DS. An iOS (iPhone/iPad) version may follow, as with Korg’s recent mobile rendition of the ElecTribe.

Markus is also kind enough to translate the Japanese contents of the presentation:

Features are (subject to change / error):

300 original M1 PCM Sounds
8x multi timbral
8 track 16 step sequencer 1 sequence max 64 pattern, max polyphonic sound 12
master reverb, delay effect
track overview, sound browser, sequence edit, mixer, keyboard. Simple and functional display
notes/chords,/drum input mode by touch control
data exchange by wireless transmit
drag & drop transpose
sustained notes


Release Date is set to 31st 12. 2010 over at amazon.co.jp.

(With past experience as a guide, delivery outside Japan may happen later – and it’s a shame this won’t happen by the holidays, huh?)

GearJunkies has a couple of screen shots.

None other than Nobuyoshi Sano does the demonstration, the veteran Namco Bandai composer who contributed to legendary scores for Ridge Racer and the Tekken series, and was the producer of the KORG DS-10 application.

And so it continues: whereas once, only analog synths could be classics or inspire nostalgia, the digital instrument has clearly arrived. The digital follow-up to KORG’s own Legacy Collection tried a similar revival of the M1, but there’s something about having it in a $150 handheld, let alone one that can also swap over to Zelda. Hey, maybe a lap of kart racing will wind up giving you a musical idea.

Yep, I would think this also...Flipnote Studio allows to save your own animations but it is from Nintendo itself. Then I read you can also save your songs in Rythm Core Alpha (another dsiware that may be of interest for the ones that are waiting for an US Rytmik release: http://www.rhythmcorealpha.com/). So...Do you know that for true?, Does a cartridge release have this limitation while dsiware does not?...Weird. But is Nintendo, so it may well be...

----

btw, I read nothing on M01 about being able to create you own or modify sounds...No "analog-style editing" as in the original M1?...


I'm glad there's still a chance for an iPad/iPhone release.

I have a cut down version of the M1 legacy vsti which came with my korg Nanokey so from what i can gather if its a true copy of the M1 then you should be able to create your own sounds as it has a full compliment of envelopes, LFO's and a non resonant filter (resonance was added on the vsti version though) with which to sculpt the samples. I'm not sure if it has short single cycle waveforms though to do more electronic sounds. I'll have to dig out the plugin again and investigate further...

I heard a couple of things about memory restrictions from a reliable source, but this seems interesting... maybe DSi ware works differently then yes? Nintendo seems a bit vague yes.... and I thought Apple was the vaguest ;).

that's why I said the m01 is kind of a General Midi studio, I think...

I think there are a few iPhone apps who offer similar functionality.....?

OK, now I get it.

I wish it would be like ChrisLody says but this maybe would be really too much for a DS with the poliphony and all. The pianos, strings, atmospherics pads sound great at any case (listen at the presentation4 video at 6:30)...and they are so hard or impossible to achieve on DS-10!. Sometimes I get tired of chasing sounds on DS10 and that will be great for this moments, but at the same time I think sound creation is what makes DS-10 tracks always interesting and personal.


---

I cannot speak of the iphone/ipad apps properly . I'm just planning to get an iPad on the next few months. I checked out some of the music apps on the iTunes store: There are dozens!. Maybe none as complete as this M01 or as amazing as DS-10 but cool enough for me for sure.

I have a theory on this... what these DSiWare apps do is include a section of writable space for saving data... therefore, the amount of data that can be stored is still limited, just like on a cartridge, and depends on how much space is still available after some is taken up for code/resources/etc. AFAIK, there's still no storing on external SD cards... I wish there was. Anyway, the guy who made Rhythm Core Alpha posts on 8bc often, so you could always ask him to explain how these things actually work. And Rytmik is already out in the USA, I have both of these apps on my DSi, unfortunately I have not had the time to make a full song with either.

Yeah, but let's face it: a program like Nitrotracker can sound pretty much the same, or not? We'll have to see. I think this interface will suit me 100X better though.

You can hear it's simple sample-based synthesis: when the note pitches an octave lower, it gets two times as slow (you can hear it in some of the rhythmic textures).
