Korg Synthesis in the Palm of Your HandExpanding the possibilities of Korg's popular touchpad processors, the KAOSSILATOR 2 handheld synthesizer puts an array of hot Korg synth sounds in the palm of your hand. It's got 150 drum, synth, and acoustic instrument sounds, ready for you to play with a swipe of your finger. You choose the scale, key, and note range that are right for your musical vision, making the KAOSSILATOR 2's touchpad easy to play for a variety of styles. You can record your playing in two independent loop banks, mute them or crossfade between them, and even save your recorded loops and performances to a microSD/SDHC card (not included). It's got a big sound and huge creative potential, and yet the KAOSSILATOR 2 handheld synthesizer fits right in your pocket.
Korg KAOSSILATOR 2 Handheld Synthesizer at a Glance:
An innovative way to approach production and performance
Korg's Kaossilator 2, like all Korg touchpad products, offers a different way to create and perform. The KAOSSILATOR 2 is about immediacy, not synth programming or creating sequences. It's a great way for you to start producing - just pick a random sound and arpeggiator pattern and start touching the pad! If you like what you hear, record it onto one of the two loop banks and keep going. If not, it's easy to browse all 150 sounds until you find inspiration.
If you're performing live, you'll be amazed at how easy it is to integrate the Kaossilator 2 into your show. It's got tap tempo for you to match the arpeggiator to whatever else you're playing, and the selectable scales and keys let you "tune" the KAOSSILATOR 2 to your music before you ever start playing. It's great for impromptu synth solos, and incredibly easy to grab-and-go in a moment of inspiration.
Smart recording capabilities
The KAOSSILATOR 2's expanded recording abilities will be an instant favorite if you were a fan of the original KAOSSILATOR. You now have two loop banks to save your ideas to, and you can now save your loops and performances to a microSD/SDHC card (sold separately)! And to expand the creative potential even further, there's a built-in microphone you can use to sample your voice, instrument, or anything else you want to capture on the fly. There's also an external microphone input you can use to connect any dynamic microphone, for more control over your recording.
Extensive performance features
You get a ton of performance potential with the KAOSSILATOR 2. Not only does it have a wide range of synth sounds appropriate for ambient, electro, trance, house, and virtually any other electronic genre, it's got PCM sampled drums and acoustic instruments that fit into other styles too. And to really get the most out of the KAOSSILATOR 2's awesome sound set, you'll love the ability to mute and crossfade between the two loop banks for more intricate performances than were possible before. Factor in the gate arpeggiator with swing and gate time controls, and you've got a ton of performance potential in the Korg KAOSSILATOR 2!

Great for beats
by fromI used to own an original Kaossilator, and I think this is a pretty good upgrade over the original. The display gives a text description of the selected sound instead of the 3 character codes of the ... read more [+]original. It also only requires 2 batteries instead of 4. I like the fact that it has 2 loops and the loops can be saved to an SD card. The biggest drawback is that it can be difficult to hit the right note, even with all the different musical scales available. close [-]

Accompaniment Small and Cheap
by David Callahan from Houma, LA USAThe Kaossilator 2 offers a better sound as well as greater flexibility and ease of use over its predecessor. The RCA connections on the first Kaossilator model have been replaced with a single 1/4" In... read more [+]put, allowing for easier access by musicians, who may have been put off by the RCAs. The interface has been completely redone, with the emphasis on ease of use. The recording process benefits greatly from this refit. Pushing buttons produces clear-cut results as opposed to Kaossilator's predecessor, which required deciphering a 2-digit number to get the same info. All a user could want is the info on the program list on the display. close [-]

Lots inside, but very flimsy
by Beyoung from Portland, OR USAI bought the kaossilator 2, despite its mixed reviews. The sounds its packed with are okay. The ideas you can finger from scratch are quite creative. What bothers me though is the plastic case is flim... read more [+]sy and can quite easily chip when changing the batteries. My kaossilator broke after 3 days. I figured I could throw it in my backpack because its "portable". The on and off switch popped off in the inside and became desoildered. I couldnt turn it on anymore and had to return it. Also the kaossilator 2 can only store up to 2 bars on a loop. I was actually hoping for upwards of 8 bars, at least 4 bars like the K-Pro. Save yourself the hassel and by a kaossilator 1. Korg needs to do a better job releasing a sturdy product. close [-]
