free dvd in celebration of korg ds 10 plus release


- 5.1 sound, using only korg ds 10. (these are the original tracks. the dvd software adds the depth of 5.1, they are not remixed).

-plays like a cd. has tracks with no menus.

-The first short film made entirely on the nintendo ds. Title = Alien zombie stick men vs. regular headless zombie stick men. more than 1.200 drawings were used in the application flickbook ds. all 12 songs from the mchl nrvs with korg ds 10 album are used in the film. No effects (audio or video) outside of the ds were used. The still drawaings were converted to avi using media-convert and the audio was added in a cheap audio program. synopsis= aliens, seemingly friendly, come to earth to capture stick people. After taking the heads of the human stick people, the human stick people turn into headless zombie stick people and the war is on.

-The music video for Resonant transformers are Tesla coils. clips from the film are used syncing with rhythm of the music. Allot of effects on the video, original audio performance.

-The music video for Turn signal 74 trafficators are semaphore signals. another flickbook ds creation simulating the early car racing video games were you never arrive at the background destination. video synced to audio with allot effects and video manipulation, audio untouched. I have another version, of similar video, were the audio is lsdj and pixel h8's pro performer.

-the complete audio tracks for Quadruple John’s cage (Parallelepiped) and u.s. patent 0,334,823. The tracks feature a video montage of ds stylus slowly coming out towards the screen and occasional mchl nrvs being displayed. Both tracks can be heard in the sidebar of this blog.

KORG DS-10 Synthesizer $19.99 posted at amazon

Product Description Product Description
Whether you are just looking for fun on the run, or a way to work out your next hit song, the KORG DS-10 Synthesizer for Nintendo DS could be your newest best companion. The DS-10 combines the superior interface of the Nintendo DS with the design concept of the famous KORG MS-10 synthesizer to bring you portable music-creation software without rival.

KORG DS-10 Synthesizer brings portable music creation to the Nintendo DS.

Various sound textures are made possible by implementing the two VCO's, three filter types, and more.

Notes that you perform can be recorded in the sequencer, allowing for further editing.
A Professional-Grade Synthesizer in the Palm of Your Hand
The ultra high-quality sound sources for the DS-10 come from KORG, maker of some of the world's finest musical instruments. Korg spared no effort in creating this ultra-portable yet powerful and easy-to-use music software with tons of the latest features-- and all with the unique accessibility of the Nintendo DS touch screen.

The KORG DS-10 Synthesizer gives you the choice of sculpting your own unique sounds with expansive on-screen controls, or starting from a preset template. With two dual oscillator synth parts and four synth/drum parts, users can create synth and drum lines using the on-screen touch keyboard and drum pads, or engage the elegant six-track, 16-step sequencer.

With powerful features such as KORG's KAOSS technology, users can add custom modulations in real-time, tighten the mix with a full-featured mixer, polish their grooves with multiple effects, and create complete songs that they can save on the spot.

The DS-10 features a chorus, flanger, and delay parameter that can be applied individually to each synth or the drum machine, either individually or as a whole. In addition, each of the editable drum sounds can have a separate effect added to it. Various sound textures are made possible by implementing the two VCO's, three filter types, and more, while notes can be recorded in the sequencer, allowing for further editing. This broad functionality, combined with patching functionality, makes the DS-10 suited to even the most avid sound designers.

Intuitive and Easy Use
The sounds made by each of the two analogue synthesizer emulators are modified using virtual knobs, and users can patch particular parameters for further modification. The user interface is mainly through the DS's touch screen. Notes can be played using a two-octave keyboard, or through an interface that detects the X and Y position of the stylus on the touch pad, simulating a KORG KAOSS Pad.

The Nintendo DS's dual-screen touch panel is used to the fullest to provide a feel and operability that is unsurpassed. Although there are many expert-level features available with synthesizer, the DS-10 can be appreciated by the complete novice as well as the seasoned professional.

Music Without Limits
The KORG DS-10 Synthesizer offers two types of wireless play in Multi-player and Data Exchange modes. Up to eight separate Nintendo DS players can connect via a wireless link to perform as an ensemble. Each DS-10 synthesizer can be played as its own independent instrument, or they can be assigned a part to create a band, allowing for virtually limitless applications.

What's more, users who have created new riffs, tunes, or complete songs can exchange their session data with other KORG DS-10 users. It is even possible to send session data in advance to your friends, so you can all play to the same tune. Not only does the DS-10 bring stylus music to the world for the first time, but this robust connectivity allows for performances and compositions that simply aren't possible on a single Nintendo DS.

The keyboard and KAOSS pad can be played directly with a stylus.

Product Description
The KORG DS-10 is music-creation software for the Nintendo DS that combines the superior interface of the Nintendo DS with the functionality of the famous MS-10 synthesizer. The sound sources in the KORG DS-10 come from KORG - one of the world's top musical instrument producers - and no effort was spared in creating these ultra-high-quality sounds. The Nintendo DS Touch Screen controls are used to the fullest to provide unsurpassed feel and operability. This innovative musical tool is perfect for aspiring musicians and professionals alike.In addition to the two analog synth simulators and drum module, a 6-track/16-step sequencer enables precise control and provides a wide range of musical possibilities. Up to eight units can be connected and played together through a wireless link, and this and other features make the Nintendo DS and KORG DS-10 almost limitless in their application - they can take you places that no single synthesizer can.

DaRr¥-Bo©pEr: interviewed by michael nervous

michael nervous Is Darry Booper your name or performance name?
DaRr¥-Bo©pEr: It's my performance name.

michael nervousWhat is the process in which you go about your ds 10 performances?
DaRr¥-Bo©pEr: The first thing for me is to find some ideas for rythm and melody. After i start to create some sounds to match the melody & rythm mood.
When i get the full song ready, i work a lot on the mix via the songmode & pattern mode (Working on patterns, sounds, melodys and rythms chaining)
My goal is always to create all the sounds i use and to found new way to bypass the number of voice and pattern limitation of the software.
It is possible to use the drum channels to make some bass or chord for exemple !
For me these limitations are good for the creative process because you'll have to found trick to get something listenable.
And no need to plug a lots of cables ... Knowing complex software like Cubase ... start a computer with Windows! etc... etc...
Music is feeling and pleasure, i don't take pleasure when i have to fight with Bill gates bugging and updating my computer all the time,
I just want to enjoy to play music.
Sometimes musicians are better technicians than musicians...
My work is a mix between improvisation and construction. I want it to sound strange and weird.
If you think "How, it's really strange and unusual !?" , you'll must be sure that i'll be happy !!!.
I use Korg DS 10 like a guitar, just a fun way to play music and take pleasure ! the only limitation is inspiration.
michael nervous do you use songmode?
DaRr¥-Bo©pEr: Yes,

michael nervous would you consider being a part of a collaboration or a multiple artist release? (creative commons release).

DaRr¥-Bo©pEr: I'm alone for now ! but i like the spirit of creative commons licences for sharing human creativity for free !
with internet, it's our chance to accelerate the process. D(o) I(T) Y(ourself) it's really simple.
michael nervous do you find the emulation of the ds accurate and if so do you have allot of experience with analogue synths?
DaRr¥-Bo©pEr: Yes it's good(There is some little thing missing but it's normal it's digital)
The first thing they must improve is the quality of the output sound.
I hope the korg ds 10 + improve output sound quality.
My experience on analogue synth is light, i just get a false Analogue Synth (Real digital modeling synth) :
Roland JP8000 with really big sound, i love it.

michael nervous what is your favorite synth and/or computer to make music on?

DaRr¥-Bo©pEr: For now, my top synth is Korg DS 10, it's really good and easy to use, you can get it with you when & where you want.
It's a musician dream.
I don't really like making music on computer for now, because of Bill GATES and his nuclear power need to start Windows !
(Why people buy computer with a lots of horse power ? 80% of them use internet & Word and 20% use it for game ... ), it's incredible.
Powersaving ???? it's a joke ????
michael nervous do ever use trackers?

DaRr¥-Bo©pEr: Yes, the first one i use is soundtracker on Amiga.
On Amiga, i do some musics with Noisetracker for some demosmakers and some games, Adrenalynn, Overdrive/infacto etc...
With a coder(Milo where are u ?), we create a special homemade tracker for a game (No public release), but the game was never released.
Recently i use Buzz (Really interesting concept)
michael nervous first gameboy/ds was what model? did you have a synthcart or tracker on it?
DaRr¥-Bo©pEr: No synthcart, or tracker i just have a DSlite with Korg DS10,

michael nervous do you perform live currently, past or future.

DaRr¥-Bo©pEr: Currently No, but i think about it and prepare some live thing at home for now.
My latest video (Kitch-Axian) is the first live training i've done (I record the way i play on Korg DS10 and integrate it to the vid)
I have some weirds ideas for live, believe me !
michael nervous favorite electronic artist?

DaRr¥-Bo©pEr: Rob Hubbard, Martin Galways, Tim Follin, Codex (I really want to know what do you do for now !?), Heatbeat
UncleTOM, Shinji Hosoe, Sanodg (Thanx for good mail on myspace), George duke (Listen to his old records and you'll understand his power), Vangelis
the list is to long ...
michael nervous how do you record out of the ds...list software and hardware.

DaRr¥-Bo©pEr: Directly to my PC with a very old Soundforge software.
michael nervous have u had a chance to sync multiple ds 10's thru wifi?

DaRr¥-Bo©pEr: No, i wait for Korg DS 10+ card !
michael nervous what is your signature track?

DaRr¥-Bo©pEr: Mr Bo Want to play trumpet Jazz, i think it's one of my best track.
No melody, only weird feeling and strange sounds.
michael nervous how long have you been making music?

DaRr¥-Bo©pEr: I start a long time ago on ORIC Atmos in 1984, i have done a basic prog to make some random music.
But my first real composition is on Amiga in the beginning of the 90.

update from korg ds 10 Japanese site

This is translated thru babelfish so it's wording is a little off....thought I would share anyway.

It is possible with KORG DS-10 Plus product image KORG DS-10 PLUS, “KORG DS-10” new extended function is loaded onto SONG mode in the base. The program of track/truck MUTE, furthermore even during mode playing it reaches the point where it can do parameter editing, a wider music production becomes possible. In addition, as a [nintendo] DSi private function “it becomes the efficiency equivalent to KORG DS-10” 2, 'Dual DS-10 mode' is loaded, more powerful music production/performance is actualized. KORG DS-10 PLUS which KORG DS-10 product it introduced evolved the part 1: SONG mode expansion Parameter editing which is in the midst of SONG playing becomes possible. Because of this, when having played the music which is produced as SONG even, it reaches the point where it can perform in real time. While inquiring about the music which is produced it is possible from now on to keep designating the inspiration of that time as shape. Part 2: Program of track/truck MUTE possibly In SONG mode, the mute of pattern similar and each track/truck can be programmed. Because it reaches the point where it can utilize the pattern which is limited effectively, it reaches the point where so far it can do wide music production above. Furthermore! The Advanced Capability just of DSi The image figure of Dual DS-10 Dual DS-10 (the efficiency equivalent to DS - 102) With [nintendo] DSi private function “Dual DS-10 mode”, the analog [shinse] simulator, as for the drum machine from 1 (4 parts) to 2 units (8 parts) is expanded from 2 to 4 units, becomes 12 tracks/trucks & the sequencer. In other words, it is to be possible to become the efficiency “equivalent to KORG DS-10” 2, to actualize high-level music production and performance. * Simultaneous pronunciation several 12 sounds (with “KORG DS-10” 6 sounds) * 4 analog [shinse] simulators (with “KORG DS-10” 2) * 2 drum machines (with “KORG DS-10” 1) The comparison of KORG DS-10 PLUS and KORG DS-10 KORG DS-10 PLUS KORG DS-10 DSi DS The number of simultaneous pronunciations 12 sounds 6 sounds 6 sounds Analog [shinse] simulator 4 units 2 units 2 units 4 parts drum machine 2 units 1 units 1 units Editing which is in the midst of SONG playing ○ × Track/truck MUTE function of SONG mode ○ × It is possible to make all timbre with the control which is similar to the analog synthesizer!
