Korg DS-10 Plus Raises The Bar For DSi Enhanced Games

By Spencer . June 26, 2009 . 12:00pm

image My Healthy Cooking Coach, the first DSi enhanced game, recently came out. What “enhancements” do DSi owners get? A paltry few recipes. Other publishers like Natsume and Namco Bandai are doing neat things with the camera. Korg DS-10 Plus goes a step further with dual DS-10 mode.


If you play Korg DS-10 Plus on a Nintendo DSi you can activate dual mode which gives music makers more analog synth options, twice the drum machines, and double the tracks. I wonder if AQ Interactive is taking advantage of the DSi’s extra memory…


New features available to Nintendo DS and DSi users are an expanded song mode and real time editing. Korg DS-10 Plus makes music in Japan on September 17. A North American version has not been announced, but AQ Interactive did their faux keynote for Korg DS-10 Plus in English so I would count on an international version.

    Hehe, awesome “keynote”. For those unwilling to watch it, the key points were:

    Dual mode (DSi only, probably due to the twice as fast processors)
    Expanded song mode (real time editing)
    Sold at retailers (lol)
    Cheaper (3990y instead of 4800y)

  • QBasic

    Holy crap, that keynote was pure epicness. He just Steve Jobs’d Steve Jobs.

  • I’m more interested to find out whether viable export options will be built into the new version, as I use the DS-10 in my live DJ sets and in tracks I produce.

  • Where was he when E3 was happening?! I want this guy to do the eulogy for me, with the crowd and big screen.

    So, this is only for JPN DSis for now? The real time editing is the highlight for me.

      This is a DS cart, it can’t be region locked. There is (AFAIK) no confirmation of anyhting region locked on the DSi besides the DSi Shop.

  • Hero of Legend

    Wonder if this is the DS game XSEED will announce next month?

  • darkriku2000

    This sounds really cool, it would be neat if you could export the music to a pc and use it for personal projects

    • TheMainMane

      You can. Through the Headphone port. Its just not a plug&play kind of thing.

  • mcgill

    To not improve the Pattern Length from the measly 16 steps is a real oversight on this new version.
