The Kaossilator that integrates.
The Kaossilator in all of its many versions has revolutionized live DJ and studio production. Its size and sonic quality have earned it a legion of dedicated users. Maybe you’re next. The palm-sized Kaossilator 2S is a great tool for serious music production.
With the Kaossilator 2S, you can use the touchpad to perform intuitively, the loop recorder to keep overdubbing, then export your recorded phrases to Ableton Live and polish them into a song. With undo/redo functions and support for exporting as multi-track data or in Ableton Live format, the Kaossilator 2S means that sudden inspiration in phrases and ideas can be seamlessly used in song production. Ableton Live Lite is also included.
A synthesizer that lets you perform freely with the touchpad
You can play melodies and phrases simply by stroking or tapping the touchpad with your fingertips. The horizontal axis controls pitch, and the vertical axis controls subtle changes in tone. It's easy to perform even if you can't play keyboard, and you're also free to perform unusual phrases that would be impractical to play on a keyboard.
The sound engine provides 150 different sounds, including standard synth leads and synth bass, acoustic sounds such as piano and guitar, rhythm loops, and single-note drum kits, meeting the needs for any style of dance music.
Numerous useful functions for touchpad performance are also provided.
? Scale/Key setting function lets you perform in a specified key without producing any wrong notes
? Note Range function lets you change the performing range in units of an octave
? Gate Arpeggiator function automatically generates precise phrases and beats
Loop recorder that lets you overdub phrases, and also undo/redo
There's a built-in loop recorder function that lets you layer your touchpad performances as many times as you like. By multi-track recording (overdubbing) the phrases you come up with, it's easy for anyone to create amazing tracks.
The new Undo/Redo function means that you can confidently re-record as many times as you like if your performance wasn't what you intended.
The Kaossilator 2S can export your multi-tracked loop data as WAV files in a variety of formats.
? Multi-track format, in which each overdubbed track is exported separately
?Two-channel mix format, in which the overdubbed tracks are mixed
? Ableton Live set format
Ok not my best choice in $150 gear purchase, but has some fun little tweaks. I recommend buying a power supply (make sure the right voltage/current). Not as useful as its twin, the Mini KP 2
I honestly didn't expect the kaossilator to be as articulate as it is when buying it. I mostly use it for field sampling of chimes, sirens, wind [the lot] also great to take to a party where someone has a speaker with a line in, gets the dancers dancin' if you know what I mean...
Interesting little device. Has a decent sound for electric piano-type things, but drums are useless to me. Playability can be difficult, but key and mode settings allow you to tweak it OK. Not a must have, but I also can't get myself to sell mine.
