Modding a Nintendo DSi into a Talk Box

Dan Gould

We’ve seen a bunch of useful software and hacks come out recently that turn mobile devices into (almost) fully functioning musical instruments. From samplers to guitars, music making is being shrunk and virtualized. In an interesting example of this phenomenon, a YouTube user in Japan has modified the Nintendo Dsi (running Korg DS-10 synthesizer software) into a 70’s rock style talk box. By taping a drinking straw to the microphone he has replicated the classic “talking guitar” sound. Look out roadies, your job is becoming obsolete -it seems bands of the future could be playing off iPhones and tiny gaming machines.
