A second pad arrived in , prompted by requests from Kaoss users who demanded onboard sample triggers, extended effects algorithms and an improved control surface. Vinyl Break simulates a turntable It’s easy to obtain the scratch sound that’s heard when you scratch a turntable, or use a record-stop effect. Using this remarkable design, you can easily control multiple effects in complex ways that would be difficult or even impossible on a conventional effects unit or would require dedicated software plus a MIDI controller to achieve. There are still plenty of programs that subscribe to this philosophy, but they’ve been joined by many others that take a different tack. Introduced on KP2, this function enabled you to flick a switch and draw some motion data on the screen. And more sample triggers. It’s not just the number of effects types that have been overhauled – some great new performance features lie in wait, too.

In addition to the effects carried over from the KP3, which include filters, spatial-type effects such as delay and reverb, a grain shifter that freezes tiny pieces of sound and repeats them, and a vocoder, there are 42 new or improved effects that represent today’s dance music scene, including effects that were newly developed for the Kaoss Pad Akoss, such as the Looper, Vinyl Break, and Ducking Compressor.
And more sample triggers. You can use a side-chain effect to emphasize the backbeats of the kick. kaose
EQ effects are also brought more to the fore in KP3, with EQ parameters sprinkled liberally around the control pad. First released inthe Kaoss Pad is first and foremost a signal effects processor with a large, ‘playable’ surface.

A new onboard SD card slot mounted at the front of the unit means that samples and data can now be easily stored or backed up. The existing programs have been significantly updated; for example, if you move your finger to change the number of beats in the loop, the timing of that change will automatically be quantized.
Effects for breaks and drops New effects include dLY. There’s scope for Korg to go further in future updates, with even more sample time and a larger number of sample triggers on our wish list. Ducking Compressor emphasizes the backbeats You can use a side-chain effect to emphasize the backbeats of the kick. Combine this with some of the Kaoss’ resonance and you’re in filter heaven. Other added effects include FL. However, the clever part is that new recordings can be made in terms of beats rather than time.
Before a recording is made you can select the tempo of the incoming signal and then capture up to 16 beats of audio at that tempo. Again, this is great for DJs and performers alike.
It’s all much clearer and even more intuitive than before, which for a product famed for its immediacy is quite a coup.
In its place comes a screen divided into red LED blocks that light up as they follow your movements around the screen. Indeed, so proud is Korg of the KP3’s screen that each time you load a new effects program its name maoss across the screen in giant letters. The Mute function cuts the input sound, leaving only the reverb or other effect sound, and can also be used as a “transformer” by turning it rapidly on and off. Kaose other interface is as intuitive, immediate or just plain fun to use.

Pros Excellent screen and control surface. Support for Your Purchase Buy Now. For greater usability, the Looper effect has been modified to let you loop the sound starting from the instant you touch the touchpad.
Newly-designed Looper lets you freely manipulate loops For greater usability, the Looper effect has been modified to let you loop the sound starting from the instant you touch the touchpad.
The tap-tempo control introduced with KP2 remains, but the sampling department of KP3 also now benefits from a stricter sense of time. Kaoss Pad’s great forte has traditionally been tempo-based effects, whereby modulating delays clocked to the tempo kaose your input signal spin off into weird and wonderful places.
A real-time effects processor/sampler with instant control over cutting-edge effects.
This enables you to set a fade-out time for any effects with a release time, such as delays and reverbs. The KP3 is great fun, delivers great results and is really easy to use. There are also many new programs such as LoP. This means that parameters from a particular effects program can be mapped onto a large X-Y control surface and an incoming signal can then be manipulated by changes you draw on the screen itself.
For Windows For Mac. It’s astonishing how quickly you get used to how the effects parameters are spread around the pad, and therefore how quickly you can learn to play and control them. It’s easy to obtain the scratch sound that’s heard when you scratch a turntable, or use a record-stop effect.
For starters, KP3 has an FX release level control, which appears as a long-throw fader to the left of the main screen. The filter has also been expanded to offer up to 72dB of cut-off, which is pretty extreme to say the least.
