KORG DSN-12 is an all-new music creation tool for Nintendo 3DS created by DETUNE and KORG. It features 12 analog-style synthesizers, with three effects each, plus a 64-pattern sequencer, and even a 3D oscilloscope so you can watch your music take shape.

Here's the details in KORG's own words...

Analog synthesizers have been growing in popularity in recent years. Featuring simple operation that utilizes the Nintendo 3DS stylus, the "KORG DSN-12" software makes it easy for anyone to enjoy serious sound-creation and song production with analog synthesizers.

The software provides twelve monophonic synthesizers inspired by Korg's legendary MS-10 analog synthesizer. Each one lets you add three effects, allowing a broad range of powerful sounds that you would not expect from a game machine.

You have seamless access to all of these synthesizers and their sequences. Since you can make your ideas take shape very quickly, you can enjoy constructing songs in real time while performing in a DJ-like manner.

You can assemble sequences into patterns, and memorize up to 64 patterns for use. Even more complex and interesting songs can be created by freely connecting these patterns together.

Don't miss the world's first* 3D display oscilloscope screen. A visual indication of the audio can heighten your interest and deepen your understanding of how sound is created.
* For Nintendo 3DS software as of June 2014

You can also use the communication functionality to exchange songs and sounds, encouraging collaboration between users.
