    Protein[DS] is an audio manipulation software running on Nintendo DS, which ables you to manipulate audio, anywhere you go - it is in some ways similar to ElectroPlankton concept.

    Using Protein[DS], you can play with up to four modules at the same time to create a live music set and control external applications, using the touchscreen, audio in/out levels, midi-out, and even motion-control. You can even play with live-recorded audio sample.


  • [13/05/03] The successor to Protein[DS], Protein Der Klang is out! At this occasion I'm releasing the sources of Protein[DS], featuring a never-released [DSamples] module... which became the first step towards the Protein Der Klang project!

  • [09/01/22] It's been a while! Here comes the first 2009' Protein[DS] version, on the occasion of my B-Day - again!!! I spent most of my Protein-time to master NDS-filesystem and audio weirdness and create a simple GUI system. As a consequence, this version is a lot more stable. Then, what's new:
      • [DScratch] graphical parameter panel - no more infernal xml editing/testing!
      • global options graphical parameter panel
      • state-save added
      • recording-save added
      • little [DSamples] update
      • better stability


  • up to 4 performance modules at the same time
  • .wav samples or recorded audio support
  • file browser with audio preview feature
  • microphone sample recorder
  • quick access menus
  • touchscreen control 
  • audio levels control
  • motion sensor control
  • wireless midi-out control



  • All needed informations are in [README.txt] (RTFM in English!)


  • Some videos I made using various versions of Protein[DS]:     

  • My -hacked- NDS headset which ables me to use a microphone (through a little mixtable) on my DS... Here's a pretty bad recording of a little beatbox session I made using Protein[DS] playing a live recorded beatbox loop + live beatbox: [ProteinDS+BeatBox_1.MP3]
