This one is so new that Korg have not officially announced it yet but the DS-10 is music-creation software for the Nintendo DS that puts the sort of patching seen in the vintage MS-10 synthesizer onto the DS's dual-screen touch panel. You get two analog synth simulators and drum module plus a 6-track/16-step sequencer. Several units can be connected and played together through a wireless link.
DS-10
  • World's first music tool software created for the Nintendo DS
  • 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

    Korg does it again! Wow it will interface wirelessly with upto 8 other units..as official Korg page says,patches & sequences can be exchanged wirelessly and even better one playing on his can chain the other units as slaves to form a single massive synth! Even with just one other unit so slaved to your master you then get a 4 vco synth and 2 seperate sequencers going at once! Incredible bang for the buck considering how little Nintendo DS's can be had for.

    I think they should rather solve the issues in the KLC-Wavestation. You are not able to organise selfcreated patches yet. You end up with a shi*load of corrupted Banksets but are not able to create a bank of own sounds. Lots of halfdone things are not good for a companies reputation ...
