Nintendo Synthesizer Emulation MP3

Wondering what musical thing the DS will do next after Electroplankton? How about simulating a full-fledged synthesizer? The new KORG DS-10 from AQ Interactive reproduces the late-1970s MS-10 on the popular Nintendo handheld.

The product’s ad site (at aqi.co.jp, from which the above image is borrowed) says it’s for Japan only, but the site is available entirely in English — and it includes a club-ready sound file that evidences the electro verisimilitude of the port (MP3). More details at gizmodo.com, engadget.com, musicthing.blogspot.com and createdigitalmusic.com.
