Dynamic Phrase Synthesizer

Show full description »

The next innovation in the highly acclaimed line of Korg DJ tools has arrived!

The KAOSSILATOR is a new pocket sized instrument that packs Korg's world renowned synth sound along with innovative performance features into an ultra-compact unit. Anyone can instantly play musical phrases by simply tapping or sliding their finger across the KAOSSILATOR’s touch pad – no previous skills required! The KAOSSILATOR is a portable, travel friendly device that runs on batteries, so you can have fun creating music anywhere your life takes you, with seemingly endless possibilities.

Main Features

A portable synthesizer delivering maximum flexibility in an ultra-compact body, with battery operation that allows you to jam anywhere.

  • Synth, sound-effects, and drum sounds, for a total of 100 powerful sound programs.
  • 31 scale patterns let you easily play a wide variety of “always perfect” phrases.
  • 50 types of gate arpeggiation help you perform complex rhythmic patterns.
  • Loop Recording allows multiple phrase overdubbing to create complete grooves.

The KAOSSILATOR is a new instrument that liberates synthesizer sounds from the keyboard. It gives keyboardists, guitarists, and DJs a convenient way to add fresh new elements to a band performance or to a DJ set, while allowing untrained musical enthusiasts to enjoy an entirely new level of musical involvement and expression.

Thanks to its ultra-compact size, battery operation and hooks for attaching a strap, the KAOSSILATOR makes it easy for you to start creating music whenever and wherever inspiration strikes you.

Packed with powerful synth sounds, sound effects, and drum sounds

KAOSSILATOR comes packed with one hundred powerful sound programs that combine Korg's legendary modeling synthesizer engine with the effects from the KAOSS PAD series, perfect for any musical genre. The horizontal axis is assigned to note/pitch, while the vertical axis is assigned to parameters such as: cutoff, feedback, or modulation depth*, giving you a wide range of performance possibilities. In addition to classic synthesizer sounds like leads, basses and sound effects, there are sounds that faithfully simulate piano, guitar, and trumpet as well as looped and one-shot drum sounds, making the KAOSSILATOR a never-ending source of inspiration to stimulate your creativity.

Scale/key setting lets you produce perfect phrases

The KAOSSILATOR has a scale function that makes it simple to produce accurate pitches that match any musical context. You can choose from 31 different scales, including chromatic, diminished, as well as major and minor blues and pentatonic scales. The scale function can be used in conjunction with the key setting function, allowing you to perform in any key. Unusual scales such as Spanish, Ryukyu, and Raga are also provided, letting you create distinctive phrases with an exotic flavor.

Gate Arpeggiator expands your performance possibilities

The Gate Arpeggiator lets you produce specific patterns of notes in sync with the user specified tempo, greatly expanding your performance options. Simply choose one of the fifty patterns to specify the timing of the notes, and you'll be creating phrases that you've never dreamed of in a flash.

Loop Recording accelerates your creative power

Loop Recording allows you to record a phrase with a specified number of beats (maximum 8 beats = 2 measures), and play it back endlessly. For example you can record a phrase using a synth-lead sound, and then layer (overdub) bass or drum sounds onto it. You can build up layers of cool phrases by simply repeating this cycle of selecting, playing, and recording sounds. Building a groove was never so easy!

Korg KAOSSILATOR Reviews

7/10

Cool Instrument! - Just make sure u know what you want to do with it!!!

Ok. The Kaossilator is, to look at, extremely cool and will get people curious, but my experience is mixed.

Good:
-Looks cool (come on its important!)
-good quality sounds (mainly in the electronica genre) some GREAT basses and leads
-can be interesting if you link it up to some other fx processor
-can actually be quite inspiring playing with the loop function

Bad:
-would like a MIDI out so i can use the touchpad to control external sounds
-no quantizing. im not blessed with perfect rhythm and although there are present drum loops, some kind of simple quantize function would be nice
-control layout isnt great for right handed people! (see on youtube people reaching round to press the loop record button you\'ll see what i mean)
-XY pad is quite sensitive: dont expect to be able to play a nice little melody on this thing. it has a 2/3 octave range (i think)so aiming for an exact note is tricky

So yes its a cool instrument (not a toy by any means), but Its no kaoss pad - so let it be itself and you can have a lot of fun!!

10/10

Korg Kaossilator

This by no means a proper musical instrument, but it isn’t a toy either. I guess the best way to describe it is - it’s about a much fun as you can have with your clothes on. Give it to a friend to have a go and you won’t get it back. Check out the numerous videos on YouTube to get a good idea of what it can do. Within about five minutes of turning the thing on you can get results that sound, well, truly professional - It feels like cheating when it’s that easy. It’s a new age stylophone, it’s just fun. Go on buy one, go on, go on, go on, go on, go on............
