iDS-10 is a new iOS incarnation of DS-10, the companyâ€™s previous big-selling music package for Nintendo DS users
New from Korg comes iDS-10, an iPhone
app comprising an â€˜analogâ€™ synthesiser complete with old-school
patching, an oscilloscope and five built-in FX, a drum synth
featuring kick, snare, 2x hi-hat, tom-tom and percussion sounds, and
a voice synth that can generate vocals from text, or be used with the
microphone throughput to function as a conventional vocoder.
And those are just the basics. iDS-10
also features a â€˜smartâ€™ keyboard, KAOSS mode for tweaking your
sounds and the ability to store up to 32 patterns that can be played
back and manipulated live.
Admittedly, iDS-10 is really aimed more
at casual users than serious studio boffins. But thereâ€™s the
facility to export your recordings and email them, meaning it could
prove useful for jotting down melodic or rhythmic ideas while youâ€™re
on the moveâ€¦ or just be a better bet than staring out of the
window when the bus is stuck in traffic!
