The latest title in the KORG DS-10 series, now available for the iOS!

The KORG DS-10 series was an enormous hit for the Nintendo DS. Now, seven years later, it has undergone a further evolution while staying true to its original spirit. Now available is the KORG iDS-10, a portable synthesizer studio for iOS.

The KORG iDS-10 combines a cutting-edge analog synthesizer, voice synthesizer, and analog drum machine inspired by motifs from the original KORG DS-10. This iOS app gives you a hand-held system to easily create electronic music, which requires persuasive sound with a minimal number of notes.

*** Powerful analog synthesizer lets you visually learn sound design ***
The analog synthesizer provides carefully selected parameters, making it easy to enjoy sound design. The unique patching function also lets you create sound in even deeper ways. Since all parameters can be automated, you have a wide range of song-production possibilities. Each synthesizer provides five types of effect with an oscilloscope that helps you see the sound. This cutting-edge synth engine takes full advantage of the iOS device’s CPU to generate astonishing sound, and will heighten your enjoyment using the KORG DS-10.

*** Enter your lyrics, and the voice synthesizer turns them into a voice ***
The voice synthesizer is one of the popular features of the KORG iDS-10. Based on a vocoder, its engine makes it easy to generate voices. It also supports input via a microphone which can be used as a conventional vocoder. The parameters are optimized for creating such voices, so you’ll be able to enjoy sound design with a different character than an analog synthesizer, further widening the possibilities for your music.

*** Analog drum synthesizer makes it easy to produce the sounds that you want ***
Drums are now more important than ever, and the iDS-10 provides an analog drum machine that’s carefully tuned for easy creation of powerful sounds. With total control over six drum sounds (kick, snare, hihat1 / ihat2, tom, and percussion), you can create awesome tracks with high impact.

*** Smart keyboard and KAOSS mode make step-recording enjoyable ***
The smart keyboard lets you specify a scale so that you can step-record without worrying about “wrong” notes. And of course there’s also KAOSS mode, where you can produce a limitless range of great-sounding phrases, with just a touch of the keyboard. The scale setting is also applied to the sequencer’s note display, so you can enjoy producing songs whether or not you have any musical knowledge or experience.

*** Pattern play that you can perform in real time ***
The pattern play capability of the KORG DS10 has further evolved, generating amazing user performances. You can seamlessly play 32 patterns, and also manipulate track mute and solo settings in real time. It’s guaranteed to result in the kind of protean acts that are notable in modern day DJ performances.

*** Send your songs by email for collaborative music productions ***
There’s a function that allows the transfer of song data via email, making it easy to exchange songs with your friends.

*** Mystery bingo!? ***
And then there’s the enigmatic mystery bingo; as you continue enjoying the KORG iDS-10, the full picture will become clearer …

Very powerful and very fun

This app has a step sequencer and a keyboard for recording notes. IGNORE THEM. The real meat and potatoes is in the Kaoss pad from which you can record your note sequences and record parameter automation of everything in the synths. Press record and play and jam out. New notes replace old notes so you don't have to stop playing until you like what you hear. Switch seamlessly back and forth between notes and synth parameters. You can literally do almost everything from the Kaoss pad save for copying sequences, panning, and master effects. Absolutely brilliant. Includes a voice synth that can produce words from text and also record external sounds. Awesome! IAP gets you two additional synth tracks and an additional voice synth. Do not overlook this!


Great music app. It has a lot in common with KORG DS10plus on the Nintendo DS/DSi. I do wish the percussions in iDS10 could do notation similar to DS10plus, specifically the tom and generically labeled "percussion", but that's minor.
The single bothersome thing to me is when editing in song mode, if you set channel muting up but then need to reorganize the pattern scenes it erases the channel mute setups for any scene you edit. I also don't like how the legato settings do this same behaviors. Aside from not being able to set scene muting for scenes that haven't been assigned a pattern in song mode, there is nothing else I would want the software to change that I can think of. iDS10 is awesomely powerful, and is the sole reason I got an iPad.

I was wrong

I have thoroughly enjoyed the KORG DS & 3DS applications, and have been thirsty for more high-quality music experiences on gaming hardware. When I heard they were bringing the software to iOS, I chalked it up to porting software to another device to recoup losses on the eShop. On a whim, I decided to purchase the app as an extra hammer in my toolbox, only to be blown away by the refinement of an already useful piece of software, on top of the expanded functionality that utilizes the iDevice bag of tricks. I was wrong to pass it off as a cash-grab transposition, and have not been so delighted to be on the losing end of an assumption! It is indeed worthy of its place in my repertoire!
