Korg M01D

Korg M01D synth/sequencer coming to 3DS eShop

1:15 PM on 04.11.2013 // Dale North

Worldwide release this summer

Hey, music nerds! You'll be interested to hear that Detune's reworking of the classic Korg M1 synth will be coming to the 3DS eShop this summer. The upcoming Korg M01D Music Workstation is essentially a mini music studio suite for the 3DS, packed full of the sounds of the late 1980s and early 1990s. Users can draw on over 300 sounds, drop them into the touchscreen sequencer, and make music on-the-go. 

Using the power of the 3DS, M01D is beefed up a bit from the previous version, which was only available on the DS. More notes and sounds are always good, but the biggest upgrade is that MIDI data can be saved on an SD card. This lets you use the M01D as a musical sketchpad while on the move, letting you pull that data over to your computer for further work. Also, song data can be exchanged over 3DS Wi-Fi.

Detune says that Korg M01D will be released in Japan next month, and will follow worldwide on the 3DS eShop this summer. 

I've been all over every release from Detune, starting with their incredible Korg DS-10 music software for the DS. I can't wait to make some music on the M01D!

One thing I've learned about the Japanese fighting game players: They are willing to play any fighter no matter how good or bad it is, and they don't shit on the game or the community behind it.

Watched the first ep of One Punch Man and I was not disappointed. It seems like they'll be adding their own stories into it because I don't remember that fight in the last 5 minutes in the manga. I'll have to reread it to make sure.

What the hell is Sega using in the printing of their PS3 game manuals? I wouldn't be surprised if some dumb kid stuck one in a plastic bag and started huffing the fumes to get high.

Been playing MGO obsessively, still can't find anyone in their right mind that uses the Hush Puppy. So of course I'm gonna be the dumb bastard that tries.

Why don't we have more games that use filtered 3D models to creat faux-pixel art? It's such a cool, smooth style, but you never see any games using it.

Oh lawd. Next Saturday, Gamestop will have three hour access to Tri-Force Heroes. Nintendo, really wish we could just get normal demos from you more often, please!

Star Wars Battlefront is pretty good. Except the beta is basically a demo with nothing in it so that upsets me. but it's still pretty good.

Just cleaning up the last of Gotham's Most Wanted before I finish Arkham Knight. Those Riddler trophies...much more fun than Arkham City but my word, stop it Rocksteady. Love the game though, outstanding. In my top 5 this year, fo sho.

Looks like my copy of Chibi-Robo: Zip Lash won't be here till Tuesday. What do I pay for Amazon Prime for again? I think I might have to stream me playing it.

I have just heard someone say Uncharted was a "role playing game."

The glitched walking animation people carrying crates in Novigrad do is hilarious.

Undecided what to do with my weekend now my fiancée is away. One part of me says I should work my ass off, another says I should go watch The Martian while the last part tells me to be a slob, play games and masturbate to Highschool DXD.. Such a hard lif

The 1.10 patch for The Witcher 3 is out. Downloading for PS4. Pretty excited to see the changes, especially since it said the damn swamps in Velen would finally see performance enhancements, along with like a million other areas. So good! Yes?

Just got confirmation that a feature I spent way too long writing is going up on Sunday. Not a bad way to start the weekend off, though I wish I had a slot on a weekday.

PB&J sandwiches. Saturday morning cartoons. A blanket. Ominous sounds coming from the next room. Blood seeping from the walls. A dark figure standing in the corner, staring, watching. Darkness, everywhere. Such darkness. This is childhood.
