KORG KAOSSILATOR 2
Introduced in 2007, the KAOSSILATOR has won high acclaim as the original gadget instrument and gave rise to the KAOSSILATOR PRO and iKaossilator for iPhone. Now say hello to the impressive KAOSSILATOR 2.
Boasting a powered-up sound generator, KAOSSILATOR 2 delivers synth and drum sounds spanning a wide range of genres, plus dramatically expanded loop recording. KAOSSILATOR 2 is packed with capabilities that can be enjoyed alone on or together with other people. Use two loops to create DJ-like mixes. Use the internal mic to record guitar, vocals, or other audio sources – just like a looper effect. The Organic Electroluminescent (OEL) display provides superb visibility. Add to that a touch slider for ease of use, microSD card data saving, plus a built-in speaker and mic. All of these features reflect the enhancements incorporated into the sleek and exciting KAOSSILATOR 2.
The unique interface allows you to interpret melodies and phrases simply by tapping or tapping the touch panel. Horizontal movements control the pitch; while vertical movements control aspects of timbre such as filter cutoff, feedback, or modulation depth. When using a Drum kit patch, multiple sounds can be played simultaneously, and you can also play the panel as if it were a Drum pad.
The intuitive design and surprising flexibility of the touch panel allows non-keyboard players to achieve amazing results, as well as create performances with tonal changes that could not be produced on a keyboard instrument.
Even if you’ve never played a musical instrument before, the KAOSSILATOR 2’s key and scale functions make the notes you play match the song. Use the Key Setting to specify the musical key or “tonic”. Choose any of 35 scales, ranging from popular scales like chromatic, pentatonic major, and blues minor, as well as unusual scales like Spanish, Ryukyu, and Raga. By setting the key and scale to match the song, you can play perfect solos without a single wrong note.
In addition, the note range allows you to specify the range of musical tones. You can set a narrow range to ensure melodies will be played accurately, or a very wide range for unexpectedly dynamic and unconventional phrases to emerge.
