Lots more news on the Korg M1 for the DS. So here's what it says on the Detune page:
- 8-part multi-timbral synthesizer with more than 300 sounds including whole of the original PCM data in the KORG M1 (maximum 12 voices)
- 8-track/16-step sequencer (maximum 64 steps per a sequence)
- 1 Master effect: Reverb or Delay
- Simple and well-composed screens structure: Track overview, Sound browser, Sequence edit, Mixer, and Keyboard
- Easy input mode for notes, chords, and drums with Touch control screen
- Exchange of song data between the others with Nintendo DS wireless system
We are planning the international sales.
All excellent news so far. Looking back to the original DS-10 launch in 2008 (yes, it was that long ago), it wasn't a huge wait for the cart to become available worldwide, so hopefully this launch will follow suit.
CDM picks up the story too. But I do wonder what Korg's strategy is around the handheld and mobile market. Monotron, iElectribe, DS-10 and now this! Where next?
I'd like to see a Kaossilator for the iPhone or iPad, I wonder if they'll do something like that? Who knows where they'll go next, and I know that we'd all like to see the Monotron become a line of tiny handheld synths with a Monotron Pro and a Sampletron too!
Still, they keep us guessing and I like that. Here's looking forward to whatever they do next, and also to December for the M01.
