KORG M01D Music Workstation Hitting 3DS eShop This Summer
Posted by Damien McFerran
What sweet music you'll make
Some of you may fondly recall KORG DS-10, a "musical workstation" for your humble Nintendo DS. If you enjoyed making bizarre aural creations with this cult release then you'll be please to learn that it's getting a sequel for the 3DS eShop, entitled KORG M01D.
Essentially a souped-up version of the DS original, KORG M01D will allow for 24 different "voices", tunes with up to 99 "scenes" using the 8 track, 64 step sequencer and a library of 342 unique sounds. You'll also be able to save MIDI song files to console's SD card, allowing for easy distribution and sharing.
KORG M01D won't come cheap, though — it's expected to cost 3,000 yen (approximately $30 / £20) when it launches in Japan this May. A western release is being arranged for Summer.
