Korg MINI-KP Miniature Kaoss Pad (Battery Powered)

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:

  • DJ practice at home, or DJ performance in a club
  • Performance with synthesizers or other instruments (indoor or outdoor)
  • Listening to your portable audio player, or using your portable audio player to rehearse a DJ mix for a party (indoor or outdoor)
One hundred effects covering a variety of musical styles

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.

      Comments about Korg MINI-KP Miniature Kaoss Pad (Battery Pwrd):

      I own an EFX-1000, KP3, used a KP2, and like the effects in my KP-mini the most. The effects sound great and the touchpad is ultra responsive. The effects are great and if you already own a kaoss pad this guy is still worth getting since from what I can tell, the effects don't sound/modulate the same as the KP3. If you have a kp3 and like it I'd still recommend buying the KP-mini because it facilitates performance and has different effects. My only problem with the unit... Don't even dream of changing the FX Depth live with this unit, you have to press the tap and A button for like 5 seconds and if you don't press them at the same time you can introduce problems so this unit should be connected to the FX send of your mixer or the depth needs to be preset.

      The KP-mini was a much better value than the other effects processors and I still use it despite owning the others.

        Comments about Korg MINI-KP Miniature Kaoss Pad (Battery Pwrd):

        I loved the Kaoss interface, but didn't need all of the extra functionality of the KP3, like the sampler, etc. And the price just dropped by 50 bucks, to boot!

        It's got some really cool effects in it. Simple stuff like reverb and chorus, all the way to insane stuff like combo decimation and filter, grain shifts, BPM synced stutters. Quite cool!
