A synthesizer that lets you perform and create multi-layered music in any style - with just the touch of a finger
The Kaossilator series was the forerunner of unique instruments that made it easy for anyone to play musical melodies and phrases. The Kaossilator Pro, which appeared in 2010, was a highly-evolved model featuring a rich variety of sounds and loop recording functionality that made it not merely a live performance instrument, but also a track-making tool.
2013 brings us to the upgraded Kaossilator Pro+. With additional new sound programs and drum sounds Kaossilator Pro+ has been supercharged to offer even more variety and exploration.
The realtime effects unit/sampler with the latest effects and sampling functionality
The Kaoss Pad series of effects units is famed for its intuitive touch-pad interface. The flagship model KP3 that appeared in 2006 continues to be highly acclaimed by musicians and DJs around the world for its powerful, instantaneous effect programs and its wealth of sampling functionality.
The sounds that drive the dance music scene have evolved significantly over these past seven years, and effects – and how they’re used - along with them.
The effects combinations which have become a staple in numerous genres and applications thanks to the KP3 have been taken to a new and cutting-edge level with the new KP3+. The KP3+ is a real-time effects unit that will generate the sounds of 2013 and beyond.
Dynamic Effects Processor
Create your own combination of Kaoss effects, and simultaneously control up to four effects using a single fingertip! Introducing the Kaoss Pad Quad; it’s Kaoss control evolved to a whole new level.
Kaoss Pad Quad Highlights
Twelve years ago, the first-generation Kaoss Pad exploded onto the DJ/music scene with touchpad-based effect control. Since then, the overwhelming acceptance and popularity of the X-Y touchpad is evident in many Korg products – Kaoss Pad effects, the Kaossilator Series, our padKONTROL and nanoPAD controllers, even the exclusive M3 TouchView™ display – that are now standards in the scene. To this we add the Kaoss Pad Quad, with new effects, functions, and features that truly stand out from the crowd.
iKaossilator Version 2.1 for iPhone/iPad!
The "iKaossilator" app was ranked the number one selling app* in the music section of the App Store internationally, and now it's been updated to Version 2.1! With the new ability to import audio loops, it's a great companion for the Kaossilator 2. While retaining its accessibility for musicians and non-musicians alike, as well as its ability to create tracks at the touch of a finger, iKaossilator has evolved to a new level that goes beyond the realm of synthesizers.
iKaossilator Version 2.1 Highlights
Audio Loop Import function
Audio loop files can now be imported into each part of the sequencer. iKaossilator v2.1 has evolved into an app that provides not just MIDI loop sequencing, but also audio loop sequencing! To import, simply send your audio loop** via iTunes to iKaossilator and load it via the import menu in the sound list (the sound selection screen).
In addition to simply playing an imported audio loop, you can use a filter effect assigned to the touch pad to vary the character of the song just as you would on the Kaoss Pad. This represents a nearly infinite expansion of iKaossilator's track-making and performance potential.
Seamless Integration with Kaossilator 2
The Audio loop import feature also enables closely coupled operation with iKaossilator's sibling --- the "Kaossilator 2". Loop recorder data created with a Kaossilator 2 can be imported into iKaossilator, or an audio loop created in iKaossilator can be loaded into a loop recording bank of the Kaossilator 2. When you do this, data such as the loop length and the BPM of the loop that you created is also loaded; resulting in a seamless transfer between the software and hardware.
Support for "AudioPaste"
iKaossilator now supports the "AudioPaste" function that was developed by Sonoma Wire Works, which allows audio data to be copied and pasted between iOS apps. You can export audio data from the Korg iELECTRIBE or iMS-20, or from any "AudioCopy" compatible app, and then import it into iKaossilator with ease.
Free Upgrades Plus Huge Savings for New Customers!
"KORG iKaossilator for iPhone/iPad version 2.1" is now available for purchase from the App Store (inside the iTunes Store). If you've already purchased the "KORG iKaossilator" app, you can update to version 2.1 free of charge.
