Korg KP3+ overview

  • 1Description

The KP3+ from Korg is a real-time effects unit/sampler and features a touchpad that allows a user to easily control multiple effects and parameters by simply stroking, tapping, or rubbing the touch pad with their finger. The unit contains 150 effects ideal for remixing, DJ and live music applications, and in-studio use, and includes filters, spatial-type effects such as delay and reverb, a grain shifter that freezes tiny pieces of sound and repeats them, and a vocoder.

Included in this effects list are forty-two new effects such as Vinyl Break for simulating the use of a turntable, a Ducking Compressor to emphasize backbeats, a newly designed looper that allows for freely manipulating loops, and a selection of effects to use as fills during breakdowns in a DJ performance. Echo Break and Reverb Break mute the input sound and generate delay or reverb, ideal ways to fill/create these breaks. Also enhanced are the synthesizer sound effects that are effective when used during a break, bringing them up to date for the evolving dance music scene.

Other added effects include the Center Canceler for partial vocal cancellation. The FX Release function automatically adds a delay to smoothly blend the effect when releasing the touchpad. The Mute function cuts the input sound, leaving only the reverb or other effect sound. Pad Motion allows for recording and playing back the finger movements on the touchpad. Additionally, eight program memories can be used to instantly select favorite effect programs, and a Hold effect that sustains the effect even after the finger is released from the touchpad.

The enhanced sampling functionality combines the use of multiple effects and samples. Four sample banks are available, with each capable of recording a sample up to 13 seconds long. Samples can be played either as a one-shot or loop. Start point adjustment can create a half-beat shift to create "doubled" effects, and a slice function edits a loop sample to instantly create completely new phrases. Re-sampling with an effect is available. Samples can be triggered in four different ways and the volume of each sample bank can be adjusted.

The pad LEDs illuminate along the finger path, aiding performance in a dimly lit environment. 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 SD/SDHC cards. A downloadable software editor is also available, providing sample data librarian management as well as MIDI assignment.

    Korg KP3+ reviews

    KP3+ Dynamic Effects/Sampler is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Useful for any set up I really like this thing but be warned there is a learning curve. The set up between logic, the machine, driver set up took a little fussing with. The device itself works great when you are feeding audio into it but I had to get creative to send that signal back to the computer to record an audio take with. There are tons of effects, and most perform pretty musically. The sampler is pretty basic and ok. This device by itself is good but is really enhaced having a digital dj station, kaossilator, and sampler unit. Good device though for what it is.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice match Yep! Learning curve again. But, I've learned to give Myself time when Korg is involved and rewards will follow. It is an ideal kit with any Kaos I use the old yellow toy and a pre + Pro. I run the toy through the KP3+ and it works nicely. I enjoy being able to stack memory loops and mix things up more than I used to. For now, I only freestyle live personal attempts at music. Practice jams, some good, some not so good. All of My Korg stuff gives Me a chance. If You have any of the other Kaos tools You will like this addition.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent combination The effects aren't comparable to something like the space or big sky, but what it lacks in effects customization it makes up in versatility. On the fly hand motion effect changes and modifications make for a good time and a great workflow. If you want to see what these things are capable of in the right hands look up Jon Hopkins live set on YouTube. Amazing!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Korg Kaoss KP3+ is a versatile effects weapon. The Kaoss pad is an amazing and tactile generator of effects - perfect for adding realtime delay, reverb, grainshifting, filtering and manipulating sounds in a way entirely different from an effects pedal. It is also a fantastic real time sampler that will allow you to slice what you sampled and manipulate the playback. Great for synths, dj's, and re-amping to add effects.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what was expected with prompt service Very happy with this purchase. I researched the product and prices for a while and this was the best price I could find. Korg has done a great job with the KP3. By far my favorite in the kaossilator line. Well done Korg. The shipping was very prompt and accurate. Looking forward to my next purchase from B&H. Thank you!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product Works great, and really fun to use. I hook it up with my EMX, and love the effects. The reason i gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because the on/off button doesn't turn it off (on mine, anyway), so I have to unplug it to turn it off. It's only a mild inconvenience though, especially for the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great piece of gear at a phenomenal price! Needed the KP3 plus for live effects, and you guys were able to offer it for more than $50 less than your major competitors!! Shipping was fast, and the product arrived new, in perfect shape! I love my KP3 plus, and will always look to you, first, before looking to buy equipment elsewhere!
