OVERVIEW

KORG's professional dynamic phase synthesizer gets a refreshing update.

The Kaossilator Pro+ takes everything that was great about the Kaossilator Pro and improves upon it. The Kaossilator series makes it easy for anyone to play musical melodies and phrases. Featuring additional new sound programs and drum sounds Kaossilator Pro+ has been supercharged to offer even more variety and exploration. The unique interface allows musical melodies and phrases to be played with ease by simply stroking, tapping, or rubbing the touchpad. Horizontal motions control the pitch; vertical motions control aspects of the tone, such as filter cutoff, feedback, or modulation depth.

The intuitive design and flexibility of the touchpad allows users who are not keyboard players to perform easily. Users can create performances that are rich with tonal changes that could not be produced on a conventional keyboard instrument.

A total of 250 sound programs
The Kaossilator Pro+ is packed with the cutting-edge synth sounds that you have come to expect from Korg. There are 50 additional programs in the Kaossilator Pro+, bringing the total program count to 250!

62 of these sounds are drawn directly from current musical genres, including familiar and extremely useful leads, and synth basses, along with sound effects for DJ use. Of particular note are the 26 drum sounds that have been especially enhanced. Updated drum PCM includes sounds from the acclaimed Wavedrum percussion synth for even greater performance variety.

With just a single Kaossilator Pro+ you can perform hip-hop, chiptune, house, dubstep, new disco, electro, reggaeton, and drum 'n' bass...or create your own genre!

Loop Recording function
Loop Recording can be set for up to four measures (16 beats.) Performances on the Kaossilator Pro+ can be recorded into any of the four onboard internal Loop Recorder Banks. By adding (overdubbing) additional sounds one at a time, you can create amazing looped phrases that range from minimal to fully orchestrated.. The four banks can be combined for virtually infinite performance possibilities. Each of the four loop banks can be muted or un-muted, its volume adjusted, and its loop length changed, making live performance easy for anyone.
The Kaossilator Pro+ provides line inputs and a mic input to allow for the recording of external audio sources as well. This makes it easy to add a vocal, or audio from any external device to any loop phrase created on the Kaossilator Pro+.

Musical Scale, Key, and Note Range help create musical performances
Even if you've never played a musical instrument, the Kaossilator Pro+'s Key and Scale features ensure that the notes being played will match the song being performed. Use the Key setting to specify the musical key or "root." Choose any of 35 scales, ranging from popular scales such as chromatic, major pentatonic, and minor blues, as well as unusual scales such as Spanish, Ryukyu, and Raga. By using both the Key and Scale settings 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 playable pitches. You can set this to a narrow range to ensure that melodies will be played accurately as you intend, or to an extremely wide range to allow unexpectedly dynamic and unconventional phrases to emerge.

The Gate Arpeggiator function lets you control phrases with complete freedom.
The built-in gate arpeggiator patterns can automatically generate phrases and beats by simply moving a finger across the touchpad. Use the slider to change the gate time and gate speed in real time for cool performances.

Pad LEDs ensure excellent visibility even in the dark.
The pad LEDs light up along the path of your finger, letting you play without difficulty even on a dimly lit stage. The four loop recording LEDs have been changed to a more intuitively obvious illumination pattern than on the Kaossilator Pro, and now light red during recording and green during playback.

    Comments about Korg Kaossilator Pro+ Dynamic Phrase Synthesizer/Loop Recorder:

    I purchased this after the day I received my KP3+ for use live. That is until I discovered just how powerful and amazing they are in the studio as well! I keep them in my KAOSS case for the road, but I use them on almost every new project in some form. Amazing!

    I took the open box/blemished offer and got a great deal.

    The Kaossilator is a timely addition to my studio and is a great creative tool.

    Be sure to check the clock occasionally so you're not late for work or wife or whatever.

    Rock on.

    Comments about Korg Kaossilator Pro+ Dynamic Phrase Synthesizer/Loop Recorder:

    I mainly play guitars, but started out with basic keyboards. This is a super fun machine. Relatively easy to use; vocoder sounds, synth sounds, analog drum sounds, 256 sound banks. The touch pad controls various parameters from sound to sound. Drum loops, the pad is divided into zones for variation in hits and intensity, or reverb or delays. For synth sounds the various envelope parameters are controlled on the vertical axis. Horizontally, notes range is triggered. It is not hard to start making loops. Just have to get used to some workflows of not over doing it because I don't think there is an undo button. you can erase the entire loop though. From what I see, if you mess up a loop the good layers cannot be saved, you have to redo the whole thing so one has to be careful. Loops successfully created can be saved to an SD card upto 32GB. It accepts MIDI in. It should accept an external keyboard controlled I believe.

    There are over twenty scales, and you can change the key. Once in a specific scale, you can't hit a wrong note and the whole experience is musical in one way or another. Excellent for experimenting with sounds, creating loops, dance loops, trance, rock and create your rhythms. Here however, I did find that you can't trigger two sound at the same time so your finger better not be on the pad when the other is triggering another drum sound. So it has limitations but with layers upon layers still the experience is musical. I do wish they had at least 8 trigger pads for storing loops and 32 to 48 or even longer measures. Right now loops are only 16 measures and at slower tempos this becomes 8 or if even slower it drops to 4. So the internal memory is not big at all. Still it loops really well if you sync yourself well. There is not autosync to beat like Boss RC pedals for guitars. Overall I do recommend this as a DJ, performance, composition, experimentation device. May be more and more devices will be like that in the future.

    Cool toy - but lousy MIDI Sync

    Pros

    • Limited built-in sounds

    Comments about Korg Kaossilator Pro+ Dynamic Phrase Synthesizer/Loop Recorder:

    The Good: Really clean sound out of this - no obvious hisssss or weird digital buzzes. Pitch/key quantization on the touchpad keeps me from hitting bum notes. Nice little toy for putting ideas down.
    The Bad - why oh why are there only 9 memory locations in which to store setups?!? In this day of cheap memory cards, there is NO EXCUSE for this! Also, the MIDI clock sync is LOUSY! If you send a MIDI clock into this thing (thru the 5-pin connector), it starts to drift after about 3 minutes. Maybe Korg saw this only being used as a stand-alone device, and not to be integrated into MIDI synced setup? It sure appears that way. Also, the built-in sound choices are somewhat limited, and I can see any user getting sick of them in a short time.
    Ultimately - would I recommend this TOY? maybe, but with the above mentioned caveats. Just don't expect to sync to MIDI.
