The Receptors latest EP “USER Deluxe” makes extensive use of the DS-10.  It works well and just goes to show the musical and technical genius underneeth chiptune music.  Don’t fret, there are still plenty of 8bit inspired sounds to be found and this latest release has been accepted into the warm and loving arms of 8BitPeoples and can be downloaded for free from their site here: Receptors – User Deluxe
