Korg brings a new synthesizer to 3DS this fall

Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

Korg's latest music-making app, Korg DSN-12, comes to the Nintendo 3DS via the eShop in September, the synthesizer maker announced this week.

Korg DSN-12 follows 2008's Korg DS-10 for the DS and 2010's Korg M01D for the 3DS. It's not a game, per se, but an emulator of an analog synthesizer the user plays using the touch screen and buttons. Korg DSN-12 offers 12 monophonic synthesizers — "inspired by Korg's legendary MS-10 analog synthesizer," the company says — and lets users apply three effects from a list including delay, chorus, flanger, compressor, kick, and reverb. Users may also exchange song and sound data locally.

It's "the world's first 3D display oscilloscope screen," too, Korg promises. Pricing has not yet been announced.
