Blast from the past
3DS has amassed a curiously robust library of music creation software for a chunk of hardware built to play video games. The KORG brand in particular has made itself comfy on Nintendo's handhelds in the past few years, starting with an emulation of the classic MS-10 synth in KORG DS-10, and now the M1 gets the software treatment...
About The Game
The KORG M01D is a music workstation based on the KORG M1, the world’s first widely known synthesiser.
The KORG M01D reproduces the M1’s unforgettable digital sounds of the 80s such as the“M1 piano”, still heard on many songs today.
This Summer isn't coming fast enough.
@Musharna So True soo many great games
YES! I was following the M-1 on DS ravenously until its cancellation - Cannotwaaaaaaaaaaait!!!!!
I just bought Rytmik Retrobits yesterday and loving it. Now I see this and MUST have. I'm a recording artist. This looks and sounds so sweet for composing on the go. Seriously cool! Would pay a good price if it's as strong as it looks. The M1 was a killer board. The Triton my favorite.
Cmon it hasn't come out yet? I need this! Haven't tried a hand at digital music since high school and I really want an easy program. I tried freeware for the PC but those are just too complicated.
Sorry to see there hasn't been an update to this article, as the M01D has been released, I have it and think it's totally worth the money if you're a musician and want something to make professional quality music with on your 3DS. While it doesn't utilize the systems graphics hardly at all (one color scheme, no visualizations, 3D is hardly used) the application is very easy to pick up and start making music with. Probably the best reason for putting this workstation on the 3DS, the kaos pad is very well implemented, with 29 different scalings and multiple configurations for each. While the resolution of the notes is relative to the size of your patterns (called "Scenes"), they can be adjusted per scene from 1 to 64 events. With eight discreet instruments (one rhythm) playing one of over 300 tones, and each with adjustable attack and release parameters, the possibilities are almost limitless, and, they truly do become limitless if you export your song to Midi Format and load it into your studio DAW to add your own gear and patches to the mix. Serious power in the palm of your hand. I love it.
