When Korg first announced the DS-10 a music system with synthesis based on the classic Korg MS-10, with drum machine and sequencer running on the Nintendo DS, we all thought it was a cool idea, but now it’s finally here (or nearly), does it really do anything worthwhile?

Synthesis expert William H took a poke around with his stylus to see if he could beat the high score.

The Korg DS-10 is not yet available outside Japan, but it will be shipping on October 14th 2008.

- 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
