At the 2013 NAMM Show, Korg introduced the latest member of its Kaoss Pad family, the Korg KP3+ Kaoss Pad effects processor.
The KP3+ is a dynamic effects processor and sampler. It offers a total of 150 programs – 22 more than the KP3. In addition to the 108 effects carried over from the KP3, which include filters, spatial-type effects such as delay and reverb, a grain shifter that freezes tiny pieces of sound and repeats them, and a vocoder, there are 42 new or improved effects, including effects that were developed for the Kaoss Pad Quad, such as the Looper, Vinyl Break, and Ducking Compressor.
Korg has uploaded another intro video for one of its older products, this time for the Korg Koassilator.
We’d rather see new gear introductions, of course, but it’s nice to see Korg ‘backfilling’ intro videos for some of the products that are a little older. I hope that more companies follow Korg’s lead on this, because it’s sometimes surprising how little media is available on some fairly recent products.
2012 NAMM Show: Yesterday, Korg officially introduced the Kaossilator 2 – a palm-sized synthesizer that is played via a Kaoss x/y touchpad.
Today, they released this intro video for the Kaossilator 2.
The Kaoss X-Y touchpad provides control using a single finger. Inside are 150 sounds, divided into categories for easy-access: Synth Leads, Basses, Acoustic Instruments, Chorded Sounds, SE, Drum Kits and Rhythm Patterns.
The Kaossilator 2 combines PCM drums, modeling synthesis and two crossfade-able Loop Recorder banks. The Kaossilator 2’s Dual Loop Recording Banks can overdub your touchpad performances as many times as you like. By adding layer upon layer to a simple phrase, you can create complex loops and then save them using the microSD data slot.
Details on the Kaossilator 2 are available at the Korg site.
