Can't wait for this...I like the DS-10, but it was too limited when using one DS.

I don't see the point.
you can do this now, with the original DS-10 by doubling up.

I'd be stoked if they added new features, such as utilizing the DS mic for vocoder function, or save/load MIDI files via SD-memory.

I think it looks very promising. I already have the DS10, and find it quite awesome. More is always better, though, and with the amount of power in the DS10+, I can see myself making full-blown, top notch tracks on the Nintendo alone :D ;) If they release a similar sampler, I'd pick up a second DSi in a blink. Well, that's an important point - it won't work with the older DS units, you have to have the DSi.

It seems they didn't expand pattern length, which is one area the reallt needed to improve, imo.
It does however have some new mute functionality and realtime tweaking in song mode.

@ Old Iron Giant:
did you see the video of the japanese guy using his DSi as a talkbox?

That is the point, you don't have to double up. Now, when I go on vacation, I can make full tracks with just one DSi.

No, but most of the new features are.

true.
My point was, the DS/DSi has useful features that they're not utilizing in the new version of software.
It sounds cool, but noting over the top enough to make me buy a second DS-10 cart. :roll:

If you want something better, look into one of these DS-apps
Yes! you can use the DS as a MIDI controller over WIFI, but the latency is.... meh..

Now I'm confused - I thought the DS10+ only runs on the DSi. Is it also compatible with the original DS units?

From what I understand, it'll work on the regular DS just like the original DS-10... so, you won't get any of the new apps advantages...it'll feel like you are still using the original version (i.e. 4 tracks, etc).

the recording/editing during song mode will be on the old DS with the new cart, but the doubled amount of tracks, synths, and drum parts will not be.
