Korg Kaossilator Pro+ overview

  • 1Description

The Kaossilator Pro+ from Korg is a performance interface that features an XY touch pad and four loop record buttons that can be set up for loop recording of four measures (16 beats) each. The controller allows the user to play musical melodies and phrases by simply stroking, tapping, or rubbing the touchpad. Horizontal motions on the touchpad control the pitch, while vertical motions control the tone, including filter cutoff, feedback, or modulation depth. Each of the four loop banks can be muted or un-muted, its volume adjusted, and its loop length changed, and the four banks can be combined for virtually infinite performance possibilities.

The intuitive design of the touchpad is particularly appealing to non-keyboard players, although performances can be created on the controller that could not be produced on a conventional keyboard instrument. Key and Scale features ensure that notes being played will match the song being performed. The Key setting specifies the root along with a choice of thirty-five scales encompassing chromatic, major pentatonic, and minor blues, as well as others such as Spanish, Ryukyu, and Raga. By using both the Key and Scale settings perfect solos can be played without a single wrong note. The Note Range allows for specifying the range of playable pitches.

A total of 250 sound programs (including drum programs) cover a wide range of styles including hip-hop, chiptune, house, dubstep, new disco, electro, reggaeton, and drum 'n' bass. Built-in gate arpeggiator patterns can automatically generate phrases and beats by simply moving a finger across the touchpad, while using the slider changes the gate time and gate speed in real time. The pad LEDs light up along the path of the finger, useful when playing on a dimly lit stage. MIDI In/Out jacks and a USB port make it easy to control external MIDI devices.

Loop data and user settings such as programs can be stored on an optional SD/SDHC card. A downloadable Kaossilator Pro+ Editor provides librarian functionality for any loop data as well as functioning as a MIDI assignment editor. Finally, data is interchangeable between the Kaossilator Pro+ and the Kaossilator 2, sharing BPM and other settings.

    Korg Kaossilator Pro+ reviews

    Kaossilator Pro+ Dynamic Phrase Synthesizer/Loop Recorder is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It does what is expected of it I can see why this has been so popular for so long. The manual is slim, to say the leas (which is what it does). But it gets you started and it's easy to figure out if you just bang around and pay attention to what you're doing so you know when you've hit on something. It's basically a groove box and you fall naturally into making fun beats. I am more interested in spacier ambient uses and it takes just a little bit of wrangling to find those modes. There are things I wish it did, but what it does it does very well.

Thank You B&H Photo !!!!! Respectfully, Paul C Torbert

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A unique synth for your collection Was a huge fan of the first Kaossilator so I had to buy the big boy. It's been out for a while so the price has come down and now it's literally the biggest bargains you can find -- used ones are going for more$!In short, the touch surface is unlike any other synth on the market. You can do things you could never do with a standard keyboard synth and the interactive hardware is more intuitive and fun than a software synth.The real fun comes with playing with the four looping buttons at the bottom. With drums loops, bass loops, and plenty of lead instruments, you can instantly build full music loops on the fly.I use it in my live rig as a go to instrument if I ever have any trouble with my gear (laptops will always fail you at some point!) or if I just need a quick transition as I cue up some other things. Pair it with its brother device, the Korg Kaoss Pad (KP3) which has the exact same body but instead of a synth, it's an effects processor. Those 2 together can make some really mean beats.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super happy with the purchase of this product. I use this in my D.J home production setup. Very happy with the quality and build. Extremely happy in dealing with B@H as they were very helpful with all of my questions. Product arrived ahead of schedule even though it was a holiday. Will definitely be doing business with them again.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A must have for DJ's I use the Kaoss to mix music and transition during live performances. Casing and knobs are sturdy and the unit is easy to learn and use. Not all sounds are useful and voice modifiers are limited. Overall great performance.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice addition to my keyboard rig!!! I love this thing for looping myself and adding quick little musical fills when I'm jamming. I only wish that it didn't just have RCA inputs/outputs, but other than that it's a great little piece of hardware.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome addition to the studio! I've been putting off this purchase for a while, and now I have no idea why - Solid build, excellent response on the pad itself, and in general a great tool for building beats.
