KORG DS-10 PLUS: ‘Digital Garden’ By Anthony Seeha

November 3, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Background information:

An original song that I wrote myself.
Here’s my latest shot at something close to progressive house music. I started out by trying to replicate a Shinichi Osawa song called IRIS, but then the song just evolved from there. Please enjoy! =)

Animated video featuring the Nintendo KORG DS-10

October 10, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · 1 Comment 

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.

Swedish House Mafia – One (HarleyLikesMusic Korg DS-10 Remix)

October 5, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

KORG DS-10 is a music creation program for the Nintendo DS that emulates the Korg MS range of synthesizers. Frequently people refer to the Korg MS-10 but this is a single oscillator monosynth. The DS-10 adds sync which the MS-20 is lacking. A newer, DSi compatible version, entitled KORG DS-10 Plus, was released in Japan on September 17th, 2009 and in the United States on February 16th, 2010. It doubles the number of synth and drum machines. It also adds some minor new features for the standard DS. The DS-10 creates sound with two analogue synthesizer emulators, each with two Voltage-Controlled Oscillators (the Korg MS-10 had only one VCO). The VCOs feature a sawtooth, a pulse (with a non-modifiable pulse width), a triangle and a noise waveform. There is also a four part drum machine that uses the same sound creation techniques as the synthesizers. The sounds made by each of the synthesizer emulators are modified using virtual knobs to change the value of standard synthesizer parameters such as cutoff frequency and waveform shape. Additionally there is a screen where users can patch certain parameters to be modified by an LFO, the envelope generator, or VCO.

If I ever were to play a live set anywhere, this is what I would play. By using two Nintendo DSi units with copies of Korg DS-10 Plus, I can mix my own songs back and forth. It’s quite handy, and a lot of fun. Every sound you hear was created on Korg DS-10. Feel free to ask questions. Please enjoy!!! =)

Rhythm Core Alpha: Lo-fi Johnny

March 10, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Amazingly cool chip video featuring a Nintendo DSi music workstation

100% Rhythm Core Alpha. This time I used the lo-fi sounds (mainly Square, Saw and C64 samples) and tried to assemble retro tunes whith many tones and some arpeggio sounds, which personally remind me of my Game Boy childhood. Are you a Lo-Fi Johnny, too?

Amazing: You can play all your patterns (blocks) in realtime and even change the key/mode of your created tunes automatically. LIVE !!!

Thank you very much again for this awesome DSiWare release and keep up the good work, SoftEgg!!!
