In addition to inheriting powerful effect programs from the Kaoss Pad KP3 and the Kaoss Pad Quad, the Mini Kaoss Pad 2 provides an MP3 player with adjustable pitch, making it ideal for creating DJ-Style performances. Use it as a DJ playback device, or use it to process the entire output of your DJ rig with Korg's famous KAOSS effects. Instrumentalists, guitarists, sound designers and even just music fans will enjoy using the Mini Kaoss Pad 2. Offering a built-in mic, onboard speaker, and convenient battery power, the Mini KAOSS Pad 2 is completely self-contained and ready wherever you go!
Realtime touchpad control
The intuitive design and amazing flexibility of the touchpad allows Mini Kaoss Pad 2 users to easily control multiple effects and parameters by simply stroking, tapping, or rubbing the KAOSS touch pad with their finger. Using this remarkable design, you can easily control effects in complex ways that would be impossible on a conventional effect unit, almost as though you were playing an instrument.
100 Dynamic KAOSS effects
100 diverse, ready-to-play effect programs are packed into the Mini Kaoss Pad 2, including many inherited from the Kaoss Pad KP3. These include standard effects such as Flanger, Filter, Delay, and Reverb, as well as three new effects that first appeared on the Kaoss Pad Quad: the powerful Looper, Vinyl Break, and Ducking Compressor.
FX RELEASE provides natural effects and transitions
When you take your finger off the touchpad, the FX RELEASE automatically adds a delay effect so that the effect blends smoothly into your song or performance, and avoids abrupt effect dropouts. When using an effect (such as aggressive distortion) that has a completely different character than the unprocessed sound, enabling the FX RELEASE ensures that the effect will blend naturally into the tracks of your song.
Extreme performance control
Excellent for DJ use and live performance, the Mini Kaoss Pad 2 provides three Program Memories for instant recall of your favorite effects. The Hold function freezes the effect parameters based on your finger's current location on the touchpad for hands-free operation. Auto BPM detection syncs the applicable effects to the tempo of the song, so that everything continues to move in sync for a professional performance. These features provide the Mini Kaoss Pad 2 with extreme DJ potential.
Need to really whoop it up on the dance floor? The Mini Kaoss Pad 2 offers a built-in mic that can be used as a "shout" mic during your DJ performance to further energize the crowd. And yes indeed, you can apply the effects to the mic sound.
The Mini Kaoss Pad 2 provides an MP3 player that can play back audio data from a microSD card. You can save your favorite songs on a card, and apply real time effects to the song as it plays. Store sound effects or other audio material that you want to use during your DJ session, or save your favorite song data and then enjoy applying various effects to it. Unlike previous Kaoss Pad models, the self-contained Mini Kaoss Pad 2 allows you to perform without requiring any additional equipment as input sources. Both WAV and MP3 formats are supported. Use the Mini Kaoss Pad 2 for those professional performances that require high audio quality.
