Integrated Kaoss Pad gives you total control

Ideal for DJ performances, the Korg Kaoss DJ controller gives you command of 120 effects programs, as well as a plethora of synth programs inherited from Korg's Kaossilator. You can use the Kaoss DJ's FX Release function to automatically add a delay when you take your finger off of the Kaoss Pad, letting you naturally blend the effect into your sound. Of course, you can still use the Hold function to maintain the effect even after you release your finger. You also get an Auto BPM function and Scale/Key settings to keep you on the beat and in key. Best of all, you can control the effects with a simple swipe of your finger!

Small, thin, and lightweight with powerful features

Although sleek and streamlined, the Korg Kaoss DJ controller packs plenty of features into a casing weighing less than two pounds. Despite its diminutive size, the Kaoss DJ's features are well-laid-out, for a friendly and fast workflow. You get two highly-responsive touch platters, as well as a great-feeling crossfader and large level meters, making the Kaoss DJ a breeze to use (and it looks great doing it). Whether you want to cue, loop, or sync, the Kaoss DJ has all of the professional-level features you need.

Versatile operation for a complete DJ solution

More than a simple DJ controller, the Korg Kaoss DJ also features a built-in USB audio interface, giving you all kinds of performance possibilities. Of course, the Kaoss DJ can also be used standalone, functioning as a 2-channel mixer. With audio, MIDI, and effects, the Kaoss DJ is your one-stop-shop DJ solution!

Not blown away. But it's five star. Very good sound. Great material. And everything feels smooth but small which is great for small booths and adding more gear. The Korg outputs when used have a great signal presence and sound. The kaoss effects are powerful as always. You need to know how to shape or compensate for louder effects in order to achieve a nice sound. Also if u already have a mixer. You can route to your inputs and use the effects stand alone. Etc. still trying to figure out how to change the jog pads to effects pads etc. which you have an effect button shift to change. Just trying to figure out the mapping and which software it's capable of controlling.
