Nintendo DSi Gets Musical with Music on: Electronic Keyboard
Put away your old Casio keyboards folks, Abylight’s DSiWare title Music on: Electronic Keyboard renders that old toy even more obsolete. The first in a planned series, the downloadable tool is meant to teach keyboard to DSi users as well as offer a fully-featured software instrument of musical merrymaking.
Aside from simple keyboarding musicians should appreciate these features:
- Automatic accompaniment function with chord recognition
- Up to 8 user definable chords
- 5 different instrument styles, each one with 4 variations
- Independent drum, bass and chorus parts
- 6 octave keyboard (2 visible) with pitch bend function
- 16 different synthesized instruments
- Integrated sequencer
- Digital Metronome
- 8 saved musical sessions
The title is scheduled to hit the DSiWare store this Friday (June 4th) in Europe and Australia followed by the North American release June 14th for 200 Nintendo DSi points.
