David Battino has documented a boot-up hack that lets you create 4-bar loops with the Korg Kaossilator:
- While holding the Tap and Loop Rec buttons, slide the power switch from Standby to On. The display willl show DLY (delay) to confirm you’re in bufferless mode.
- Release the buttons.
- Hold down Loop Rec and Tap again; this puts the Kaossilator into loop-length adjustment mode.
- Turn the data knob one click to the right. The display will change from L 8 to L16. You’re now in 4-bar (16 beat) loop mode.
- Double-click the Scale button to return to sound-select mode, or just wait 12 seconds.

This is an interesting hack, but a hack just the same. If you’re a Kaossilator owner, give this a try and let me know what you think of it.
