Here’s what they say …
Analog synthesizers have been growing in popularity in recent years. Featuring simple operation that utilizes Nintendo 3DS stylus, the “KORG DSN-12” software makes it easy for anyone to enjoy serious sound-creation and song production with analog synthesizers.
The software provides twelve monophonic synthesizers. Each one lets you add three effects, allowing a broad range of powerful sounds that you would not expect from a game machine.
You have seamless access to all of these synthesizers and their sequences. Since you can make your ideas take shape very quickly, you can enjoy constructing songs in real time while performing in a DJ-like manner.
You can assemble sequences into patterns, and memorize up to 64 patterns for use. Even more complex and interesting songs can be created by freely connecting these patterns together.
Don’t miss the world’s first* 3D display oscilloscope screen. A visual indication of the audio can heighten your interest and deepen your understanding of how sound is created.
* For Nintendo 3DS software as of September 2014
You can also use the communication functionality to exchange songs and sounds, encouraging collaboration between users.

Electroplankton was one of those bits of software that took a really different direction and got people to think about music making in a different way than people had before. It brought music making to handhelds and it showed that you could do something that was not really a game and not really creating music in any serious or structured way and it could still be worth while and a valuable thing to do.
I think we have a lot to owe to apps like this one.
Ok, not the best actual video of the DS-10, but you can at least hear what’s going on.
