The KAOSS PAD series lets you control the effect entirely from the touch pad in realtime. Different effect parameters are assigned to the X axis and Y axis of the touch pad and can be controlled simultaneously, meaning that you can vary the delay time and the feedback at the same time, or simultaneously change the cutoff and resonance of a filter. This means that complex effect operations that otherwise would require two hands on a conventional knob-based controller can be performed easily and intuitively with just one hand. Its also easy to apply complex effects by rubbing or tapping the pad with your fingertip as though you were playing a musical instrument.A small size allows use in a variety of situations
The mini KP features the smallest body in the KAOSS PAD series. It can be operated on batteries, and provides a strap attachment hole for easy portability. This means that you can now use the KAOSS PAD series unique and intuitive one-finger operation with a wide range of instruments or sound sources, in an even greater variety of situations. Here are some examples:
The mini KP contains a total of one hundred effects, many derived from the larger KP3, including filter, delay, and a looper, covering a wide range of musical styles. Theres a low and high band pass filter that lets you cut specific frequency ranges of sound to add variety to a song, a decimator that intentionally degrades the audio quality of the input to give unique impact to the sound, a much-requested delay and reverb combination effect, a looper and pitch shifter that captures and repeats incoming audio, retuning it in real time as the pad is manipulated, synth sounds derived from the KP3 - and many more effects that can dramatically transform the sound.BPM effects, and a FX RELEASE function for natural-sounding effect transitions within a song
You can use the TAP/BPM button to detect the BPM (tempo) and synchronize the mini-KP to an audio input source, and then take advantage of the many BPM effects that are synchronized to your song or performance - an excellent way to use effects. Theres also an FX RELEASE function that lets the effect sound decay gradually when you remove your finger from the pad or change effects. This makes it easy to blend the mini KPs effects into your performances and songs. Some effect programs do not support the FX RELEASE function.Hold function lets you fix the effect settings at a given moment, and memory keys that remember your favorite settings
When youre touching the pad to apply an effect, you can use the Hold function to freeze the effect settings at any desired point. Theres also a Memory Key function that lets you memorize the selected effect program, the Hold function on/off status, and the effect depth. This lets you store your favorite effect settings for instant recall anytime, so you can boldly use effects to transform the character of your songs or performances.
