NAMM 2012: Korg Launch Mini Kaoss PAD 2
13 years ago, the first-generation Kaoss Pad exploded on to the DJ/music scene with touchpad-based effect control. Welcome to 2012 the Korg mini KAOSS PAD 2 - it's sleek, self-contained, and ready for stage, studio or the DJ scene, has inherited powerful effect programs from the Kaoss Pad and Pad Quad and has brand new features to bring us to the sleek and exciting new KAOSS.
We agree with Korg when they say the mini KP will be useful as DJ playback device or to process the entire process of your DJ rig. The onboard MP3 player with adjustable pitch, Korg's VALUE slide feature and built-in Auto BPM detection, 6 present loops and easy-to-read screen makes the mini KAOSS PAD 2 ideal for creating DJ-Style performances. The realtime touchpad control, 100 dynamic KAOSS effects, FX release, microSD card data saving, plus a built in speaker and mic make it appeal to instrumentalists, guitarists, sound designers and even just music fans!We're expecting the Korg mini KAOSS PAD 2 around May 2012 and we've been told it'll be approximately £167. If you're interested in the mini KAOSS Pad, you can head over to the product page and sign up for a 'Basket Alert' (found on the right hand side) and we'll email you when it's in stock.
