I was just about to go to bed when I noticed that I had new RSS feed stuff from GAME Watch. AQ Interactive is releasing the KORG DS-10 Synthesizer in July. KORG is a very popular synthesizer and sequencer company. I grew up in a music store that had a pretty decent sized synth department, so when I saw the big KORG logo, I was immediately intrigued. Very much like a full sized keyboard, you can record tracks using different sounds and mix them all together with a built-in drum machine.
The touch screen is used to do things like input notes and change sound levels. There’s even online WiFi support for multiplayer. According to the official website, this product is being demonstrated at the Musikmesse in Germany this month, which is probably the world’s largest music trade show. And if you’re curious about how it sounds, the official site has a demo song. Pretty cool stuff.
