Features include an '80s-inspired interface and a selection of keyboard, console and computer sounds from the '80s, plus rhythms inspired by the first generation video games. You can also enjoy an automatic accompaniment function with chord recognition, up to eight user-definable chords, a six-octave keyboard (two octaves visible), pitch bend function, 16 instruments, an integrated sequencer, metronome, recording and replay options.

    If you do have the skill, though, and any appreciation for the growing popularity of the chiptune scene -- drop two bucks here. The small investment could lead to your next big hit.
  2. With a retro-styled interface and sounds to throw any gaming fan into a fit of audio nostalgia, Music On: Retro Keyboard is simply more fun than the serious Electronic Keyboard.
  3. Cheap and cheerful ways to get creative on your DSi, but they're not for hardcore musos. [Sept 2010, p.96]
