Can't play SONG in Multiplayer?

Post by the.f00l » Mon Jun 11, 2012 1:15 pm

I'm using Korg DS-10+ on two different NDS.
My goal is to play the same song on both of them... but when I'm in multiplayer mode ad i hit the SONG button an error occurs (Unable to access now).
This also happens using Korg DS-10...
So: the multiplayer mode can only sync while playing single patterns?
And therefore the only way to "sync" the whole song is... pressing PLAY at the same time (so if i want to change the bpm i'm screwed)?

Tell me I'm missing something, please. :?

Thank you.

Unfortunately, Song Mode doesn't work in Multiplayer. You will need to man each DS individually

However, if you are using Korg DS10+ in Dual Mode and on a compatible DSi then you can run Song Mode - with the extra mute voice functionalityso you can have 1 musician - 4 Synth voices plus 8 Drum tracks ( program the drum sounds into more-instrument sounding patches such as a bass or drones etc.

Changing between Deck A and Deck B can be very quick using the shoulder buttons - in theory - you should be able to accomplish huge works on just one DSi without using multiplayer :)
Hope this helps - but yes, I was a little disappointed when i discovered I couldn't use Multiplayer Song Mode. .

That's too bad...
I don't have a DSi (yet?) so I'm gonna use the manual method.
I hope the feature will be implemented next time, I don't think I'm the only one that finds it quite important.

Thank you very much for the tip, anyway :)

Nintendo DSi + Korg DS10+ = Twice the power + Extra functionality = Pro level Music Production :)

Don't hang about - get a DSi . . .:)

yeah, i agree with you...
but I want to have two different audio sources (from two different NDS), playing the same song.
better, muting the synths in one and the drums in the other.
therefore being able to manipulate the single audio (i.e. applying different effects).

Don't forget you can use different effects on deck 1 to deck 2 etc :)
