5 At last: The music title that makes full use of the DS!TheodoreKerabatsos | 11/10/2008 | See all TheodoreKerabatsos's reviews (12)Top 100 Games Reviewer As an owner of a Korg MS-10 synth - one of the models on which this program is based - I was sceptical about how good a job they'd do with this DS release. When I switched on my Nintendo I was quite impressed. As I delved further into the submenu screens I was blown away.I always knew that there was great potential to use the DS as a music making machine, but I didn't think that something of this scale and quality would ever be seen on the handheld. It is amazing.The synth itself is based on the MS mono-synth series of the early 80s, but also there is a drum sequencer with editable sounds and a pared-down Kaoss pad thrown in too. The synth has 2 VCOs which can be synchronised or detuned to beef up the sound and there are a range of waveforms to select from too, just like on the hardware synths. To complete the package there are a few FX such as flange and delay, which while not being great in themselves are a welcome addition to an already great package.If this were released as a standalone instrument, you could expect it to set you back a couple of hundred pounds, so anyone with the slightest interest in music and analogue synths in particular would be missing a trick if they overlooked this cartridge. You will not be disappointed.
