hopefully, with a super card, recording supposed to be as big as the MicroSD could handle (up to 8 gb perhaps), can anyone confirm about this? :roll:

There is this thing called playing in realtime.
Wait, what? But seriously, I figured the ds-10 was too much of a chore to play in realtime. That's why it comes with a 4 track sequencer right? Oh, and I play everything live except drums.
That is until someone makes an expansion pack keyboard for the DS...which will probably happen. I just got the expansion DS paddle so I can play a proper game of arkanoid!
T2000~ I'm assuming the 4 track sequencer is so you can compose full tracks with it's built in drum machine as well.

JSR~ if you hear of an expansion key's please post that...

Thanks a bunch for the link, th0mas! :D
Could you help us with some specs for the DS? I've been looking all over, but can't seem to find out just how much sample time/how big samples the unit can hold...?

Any info would be greatly appreciated! :D

PS! Check out this awesome demo of one of the softwares:


Whoooaaaooa!

There's already a casio SK clone for the DS. Nothing complex yet.
Nitrotracker will sample from the mic, as well.
If you want to get really stupid, there ARE mic-in contacts on the bottom. They're meant for the voice chat headset, but~

Sounds awesome, make me wish I had a DS. It'd be cool if there was an optional keyboard to attach onto it. :P

Just got mine, it's a brilliant piece of kit! I've been playing with it on and off all day. I seem to keep making rump shake'n acid, for the most part; I got a sweet string sound by setting both synth parts proper, then I edited the drum synth as well, added delay to the drums, then chorus to everything, then I upped the bpm and eff'd with the swing. The work flow is incredible, it's an awesome sketch pad! :D
