In an interview with Image Line (FL studio) he says: "Right now my production environment is mostly my laptop and Beyerdynamic DT pro 880 headphones but in my studio i have a Virus TI, Moog Lil Phatty, Korg kaosillator, Yamaha Motif rack XS, and even though I'm ripping sounds from here non stop, my synths mainly come out the Sylenth1 VST."more
Ichirou Agata played the Kaossilator live in Melt-Banana Lite’s 2009 tour with Melt-Banana, as seen in this photo published in *Noisecreep* on December 1, 2009. “Three members of Melt-Banana spazz out like Original Recipe Melt-Banana, only with samplers, Theremin and Korg Kaossilator instead of guitars.” —*[Fan-Belt](https://fanbelt.wordpress.com/2009/12/04/recap-melt-banana-at-high-noon-saloon-madison-12-2-09/)*, December 2, 2009more
This cute little touchpad synth is honestly extremely underrated in my opinion. While it can be hard to navigate sometimes, its tendency to create accidents that both sound good and fuel the creative process even further is one thing that I often seek and almost NEVER find in gear otherwise. My few qualms are that it runs on so many batteries (four AAs!) and that there aren't gridlines on the pad to give you an idea of where you are while touching it. Overall a fantastic trinket with big sounds!
My Kaossilator and I have been through lots this past year, and he has just been a joy to play around with and get a groove going. My only gripe is not being able to save your patterns though, which is really unfortunate, but! It has grown me fond of my little notebook.
