'KORG M01' is a palm-sized Music Workstation for
Nintendo DS! You can make a wide variety of music with 8 tracks sequencer and more than 300 sounds including the legendary Korg's M1 sounds. Anyone can generate musical notes, chords, and drums by Touch control screen without music knowledge.


Amazing what they can do these days, etc etc.


Available soon at $60. Not bad when you consider the original M1 was closer to £1k. But of course, you dont get a keyboard. Nintendo DS Midi interface anyone?

I love the Korg Analog & Digital Legacy VSTi's. I wish they's make a VST Karma instead of DS toys though... perhaps they had such a hit with the Monotron Korg think smaller is better?

Seems like Korg is really pushing to get at users (amateurs?) who prize portability over all. Fits right in with all the "micro" hardware they have been releasing. I guess the DS-10 was a hit for them.

Perhaps after seeing the great success the DS-10 had (relatively speaking) they decided to expand upon that. I like the DS-10 a lot, it was something different, even inspiring.

And yes, its for amateurs. Consider this: how many profesional musicians that can actually afford an m3 are there? now consider: how many music-loving guys are there with already a DSi?? I bet you there are more of the second. It is a relatively unexploited market, with less than 10 products I believe... or at least very few good ones.

just like to point out the the MO1 is not made by KORG. it is made by a japanese company called Detune who also made the DS-10 and DS-10+. KORG are backing the product as it was their original keyboard in the first place.

Hey! Wouldn't it be cool if they made an M1 for the iPad? It'd be great to bring that to a gig and be able to set up splits & layers in Combi mode and whatnot.
