OVERVIEW

The Kaossilator that integrates.

The Kaossilator in all of its many versions has revolutionized live DJ and studio production. Its size and sonic quality have earned it a legion of dedicated users. Maybe you'e next. The palm-sized Kaossilator 2S is a great tool for serious music production.
With the Kaossilator 2S, you can use the touchpad to perform intuitively, the loop recorder to keep overdubbing, then export your recorded phrases to Ableton Live and polish them into a song. With undo/redo functions and support for exporting as multi-track data or in Ableton Live format, the Kaossilator 2S means that sudden inspiration in phrases and ideas can be seamlessly used in song production. Ableton Live Lite is also included.

A synthesizer that lets you perform freely with the touchpad
You can play melodies and phrases simply by stroking or tapping the touchpad with your fingertips. The horizontal axis controls pitch, and the vertical axis controls subtle changes in tone. It's easy to perform even if you can't play keyboard, and you're also free to perform unusual phrases that would be impractical to play on a keyboard.

The sound engine provides 150 different sounds, including standard synth leads and synth bass, acoustic sounds such as piano and guitar, rhythm loops, and single-note drum kits, meeting the needs for any style of dance music.
Numerous useful functions for touchpad performance are also provided.

ƒ» Scale/Key setting function lets you perform in a specified key without producing any wrong notes
ƒ» Note Range function lets you change the performing range in units of an octave
ƒ» Gate Arpeggiator function automatically generates precise phrases and beats

Loop recorder that lets you overdub phrases, and also undo/redo
There's a built-in loop recorder function that lets you layer your touchpad performances as many times as you like. By multi-track recording (overdubbing) the phrases you come up with, it's easy for anyone to create amazing tracks.
The new Undo/Redo function means that you can confidently re-record as many times as you like if your performance wasn't what you intended.

The Kaossilator 2S can export your multi-tracked loop data as WAV files in a variety of formats.
ƒ» Multi-track format, in which each overdubbed track is exported separately
ƒ»Two-channel mix format, in which the overdubbed tracks are mixed

    Comments about Korg KO2S 2ND Gen Kaossilator With Ableton Export:

    Great little "idea creator." The KO2S functions as claimed. In my opinion, you cannot ask for much more in a handheld device. The sound quality is great and its looping / overdubbing capabilities are adequate. I definitely recommend getting an micro SD / SDHC card right away in-order-to utilize the majority of its features. Also, (like a lot of things these days...) it does not come with its own power supply (4.5V / 500ma), so you will need to get one of those. I do not perform live anymore, but I imagine this could be a great little, inexpensive "side-bar" piece to any rig (connected via 3.5mm cable). The ability to just slide your finger across the main control surface for random note changes and performance takes is pretty cool. At first, one tends to think that the random movement would lead to in accurate notes; however, it only a couple of seconds to figure out where you want to "slide" to get the note, or performance you desire. Also, sliding into a note you did not plan on cold produce another idea for you, who knows...
