I stumbled upon the greatest hack/mod/sandwich for the Nintendo DS. It’s called Midify and as any dork or musician could guess, it’s MIDI-related. This little board adds MIDI ports to your DS, allowing Electroplankton to shine at its full potential. Apparently the interface is very easy to work with and mapping triggers shouldn’t be a problem.
At $35, DS enthusiasts will be very happy with this mod. Lots of options are available and the ability to us a DS (with a touchscreen) as a MIDI controller opens all kinds of possibilities.
