The Korg DS-10 is a synthesizer/step sequencer for the Nintendo DS. More on this subtly animated cartoon video can be found below:

“Happy go lucky (but downtempo) tune on the Nintendo Korg DS-10 synthesizer sequencer. I think it’s melodic electronica. More DS-10 stuff at http://korgds-10.blogspot.com. All my best selling albums are available at http://records.ugocapeto.com. If melodic electronica is your thing, check my new melodic electronic music forum at http://forum.ugocapeto.com.”

This 71st track kinda marks the return to my roots, musically speaking: the happy go lucky tune, downtempo style. Yes, I had strayed a bit from that kind of tuneage recently. One more track and the next album is gonna be ready for release on Ugo Capeto Records.

I had reserved a pattern (the last one) to end the song but ended up not using it, opting for the not very creative fading out repeated (random) pattern.

The bpm for this song is 60. The scale is F major.

For vintage hard core synth fans – sounds of the KORG MS10

The MS-10 is a cool & classic analog synth known for its great bass and percussive sounds. It was released by Korg in 1978 as an entry-level, simple monophonic single-VCO analog synthesizer. With the authentic look of a mini-modular its single VCO is patchable using standard 1/4 inch patch cords to the VCF and VCA. It really is a powerful little mono-synth with plenty of knobs and a compact 32-note keyboard. It is CV/Gate controllable. A very cool feature is its external input to filter which allows you to filter external sound sources! Following the MS-10 came the double-oscillator version, the MS-20.
