Ready for the stage, the studio, or the DJ scene, the self-contained miniKAOSS Pad 2 offers dazzling performance effects and onboard MP3 playback! Korg's Kaoss Pad Series products have become the must-have effect units on in every musician's rig - especially on the DJ scene. In addition to inheriting powerful effect programs from the Kaoss Pad KP3 and the Kaoss Pad Quad, the miniKAOSS Pad 2 provides an MP3 player with adjustable pitch, making it ideal for creating DJ-Style performances. Use it as a DJ playback device, or use it to process the entire output of your DJ rig with Korg's famous KAOSS effects. Instrumentalists, guitarists, sound designers and even just music fans will enjoy using the miniKAOSS Pad 2. Offering a built-in mic, onboard speaker, and convenient battery power, the miniKAOSS Pad 2 is completely self-contained and ready wherever you go!
Realtime touchpad control
The intuitive design and amazing flexibility of the touchpad allows miniKAOSS Pad 2 users to easily control multiple effects and parameters by simply stroking, tapping, or rubbing the KAOSS touch pad with their finger. Using this remarkable design, you can easily control effects in complex ways that would be impossible on a conventional effect unit, almost as though you were playing an instrument.
100 Dynamic KAOSS effects
100 diverse, ready-to-play effect programs are packed into the miniKAOSS Pad 2, including many inherited from the Kaoss Pad KP3. These include standard effects such as Flanger, Filter, Delay, and Reverb, as well as three effects that first appeared on the Kaoss Pad Quad: the powerful Looper, Vinyl Break, and Ducking Compressor.
FX RELEASE provides natural effects and transitions
When you take your finger off the touchpad, the FX RELEASE automatically adds a delay effect so that the effect blends smoothly into your song or performance, and avoids abrupt effect dropouts. When using an effect (such as aggressive distortion) that has a completely different character than the unprocessed sound, enabling the FX RELEASE ensures that the effect will blend naturally into the tracks of your song.
Extreme performance control
Excellent for DJ use and live performance, the miniKAOSS Pad 2 provides three Program Memories for instant recall of your favorite effects. The Hold function freezes the effect parameters based on your finger's current location on the touchpad for hands-free operation. Auto BPM detection syncs the applicable effects to the tempo of the song, so that everything continues to move in sync for a professional performance. These features provide the miniKAOSS Pad 2 with extreme DJ potential.
The miniKAOSS Pad 2 provides an MP3 player that can play back audio data from a microSD card*. You can save your favorite songs on a card, and apply real time effects to the song as it plays. Store sound effects or other audio material that you want to use during your DJ session, or save your favorite song data and then enjoy applying various effects to it. Unlike previous Kaoss Pad models, the self-contained miniKAOSS Pad 2 allows you to perform without requiring any additional equipment as input sources. Both the WAV format as well as the MP3 format is supported; you can use the miniKAOSS PAD 2 for professional performances that require high audio quality.
Serious DJ Toolkit
The playback speed of the internal MP3 player can be varied using the VALUE slider. The miniKAOSS PAD 2 also allows you to set a cue point specifying where in the song playback will start. In addition, the VALUE slider can be used as a fader to adjust the volume balance between the external audio input and the MP3 player, allowing the miniKAOSS PAD 2 to be used as a serious DJ player or a simple mixer. Add the miniKAOSS PAD 2 as the third player in a DJ set, enjoy exciting DJ play by combining two miniKAOSS PAD 2s, or load your miniKAOSS PAD 2 with sound effects or voice samples and use it as a sample player!
Built-In Mic & Speaker
Need to really whoop it up on the dance floor? The miniKAOSS PAD 2 offers a built-in mic that can be used as a "shout" mic during your DJ performance to further energize the crowd. And yes indeed, you can apply the effects to the mic sound. Equipped with a built-in speaker, the KAOSS PAD 2 is ready to share your exciting sonic creations wherever your music takes you. The headphone output provides privacy for playing and experimenting alone, and can also be used to connect the KAOSS PAD 2 to another audio device.
Record Your Performances
A microSD card can be used for saving MP3 data, and also to capture your miniKAOSS PAD 2 performance into the master recorder as WAV format data. Once you've found the perfect way to apply an effect, you can use this function to record your idea. This is a convenient way to share miniKAOSS PAD 2 performances on the Internet.
6 Preset Audio Demo Loops
6 preset audio demo loops are stored in the internal memory.
