    There are more fully-featured music suites out there, but the M01D's versatility and the quality of sounds on offer more than make up for the feature gap.

    KORG M01D is a great piece of music creation software, which, whilst not as robust as similar programs found on PCs, does what it sets out to do: provides a faithful emulation of KORG's popular 80s synthesiser. For those who are curious about music creation, this is probably one of the best ways to get started!
  3. Korg M01D achieves what it sets out to, but its insistence on being so precise a simulation closes the door to regular users looking to have some fun. [Jan 2014, p.88]

    Rather than a game, KORG M01D is an exquisite musical composing tool that fits perfectly within the 3DS. Its price tag is yet another point in favour for a title that is set to captivate its target-audience. Nevertheless, it should be pointed out that M01D might still seem too intimidating for those with few skills in the field of music-making.

    As an application and a tool for creating music, KORG M01D does justice to the original product launched by KORG in the late eighties.
