JimboSpins's review"Tons of effects and they are all usable "

Korg Kaoss Pad 3 KP3
The Korg KP3 KAOSS Pad will allow you to edit your sounds in real time with X/Y controls, it has 128 programs and you can sample right on the Korg KP3 KAOSS Pad. It has some really good effects that come stock on it, and for 330 USD makes it a must have for a DJ. There are a number of effects that are tempo based which has really helped me out during a live performance. You can also use the Korg KP3 KAOSS Pad as a MIDI controller.

UTILIZATION

The Korg KP3 KAOSS Pad does provide a nice and rather cool visual to it when you are using it, if you are using it in a live setting in a club or darker venue it will look pretty cool and even the people around you will feel the same way.

SOUND QUALITY

The Korg KP3 has 128 powerful sounding effect programs; it has all of the basic effects like reverb, delays, flangers and others. But it also has some really new and surprising effects like the analog filter and tone building drive circuit.

OVERALL OPINION

The Korg KP3 KAOSS Pad is well built; it has everything you need for a live show. The built in vocoder is awesome for all of your vocal effects. If you are in need of a machine that will give you full control and a bunch of FX’s then this is what you need. I have been using the Korg KP3 KAOSS Pad for over a year now and I use it at every single show that I do. It has become one of the main focal points of my setup. It is portable and very stable, it only weighs a couple pounds and it comes with a protective sheet for the touch pad. If you take care of this unit it will last you a long time and you will have no issues with it.

Folow's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Korg Kaoss Pad 3 KP3
effects are kind of live with flanger, cutoff, reverbs, delays, synths, ... in direct control with the touch pad.

The KP3 is fully editable via the PC via USB. I work on a PC, the software comes with the KP3.
USB connection, inputs and outputs connctiques in Stereo RCA jacks afternoon ...

Digital technology.

UTILIZATION

Configuration is very simple, we take care of quickly,
the manual is not clear enough in my opinion and it is better to directly test, it is much more meaningful.
The best is to go on forums, watch videos on the web.
the craft has tips so there is plenty to do (see the videos on the web, there are really hyper users point).
The edition of the sounds is not necessarily so easy but let me explain: the effects are very easy to call and play, but then to set up the effects or controls pushed it gets harder and a little better through the pc.

SOUND QUALITY

Effective hyper effects of live, and plugant a table and sending what you want dedant see a group that makes nice stuff!

Personal the KP3 is rather dedicated DJing but I took it for a little game live on various intrusions. I play with synth and guitar but this one is with the synths I use the most. I used short loop sequencer. I shipment of 1 4 loop dedant that turn and I improvise on it. kiffant fast and hyper, it can make improvisations in 1 minute, comprehensive, and effects to vary ... it is very effective but it can not make an evening of it either but it's a small effect!
I have a kronos and M3

OVERALL OPINION

I've had one year?
I tested it in the store before choosing but choose between effect type or mpc or another.

I love the fact to control the effects live and have tracks repeatedly.

I do not like the difficulty of callage tracks them (sometimes gaps of time measurement), and made up for it, and the fact that the loops are short obbligatoirement.

With the experience I remake this choice ... I really do not see any other type of gear for this purpose at this price.

domguitar's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Robust sound quality, limited edition"

Korg Kaoss Pad 3 KP3
Filter effects, synthesis, Dlay, granulation.
I sold so I do not remember very well the complete list of effects. You can easily find the instructions on the net ...
Its digital control via midi possible.
Publisher via USB
Audio: RCA connectors
External power supply.

UTILIZATION

Fairly intuitive, the touch screen is a find, this is why I bought it.
Can cope with the manual bn for data backup or sounds on the internal card (not supplied) must still read a bit and find the right section!
The issue is quite simple because limited.

SOUND QUALITY

The effects are of quality.
It can handle an external sound or a sample, but not to the two at the same time, or I have not found the manipulation.

We must put the device in front of you and I can make a stand!

OVERALL OPINION

I used it one year and I found the limited edition too.
I had a clear idea of ​​what I wanted to do and so it does not stick. If instead we start from what the bike without seeking anything else that may be suitable.

The price / quality ratio secondhand can be interesting if it was not dealing with a cheapskate!

Anonymous 's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" indestructible, versatile"

Korg Kaoss Pad 3 KP3
all is said by my predecessors
the vocoder is not parameterizable
PAD does not like big fingers (while stylus)
MIDI connection is not usable unless a board with a PC and the editor as well go on a damn better editor than the KP3

UTILIZATION

easy config, fast memories, the sampler is a little CH .... relative to that of Kaossilator, the next 2, one can gourer

the Arpegiator is excellent

SOUND QUALITY

what real effects that other saying who find a taste of metal or too digital

it's on, ca not go on the MOZART or SHEILA, but there is little attenuations output and zero latency
LFO filter are my darlings with loopers

OVERALL OPINION

2 years of intensive use, many thanks to the combined forum because something sells well and emulated. people make an indirect promotion as Beardyman, daftpunk, and dj ...

JonMokh's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Korg Kaoss Pad 3 KP3
not bad choice .. lack can be distos and reverb are blah blah but you buy it usually pr ;)
recurring problem as a tablecloth that dirty or disconnected inside ....
heard that many times the symptoms are: touchpad does not react
once you know it is not serious enough to open and reconnect the water (in a good sense;! p)

otherwise it is solid to touch something

UTILIZATION

easy to use, very clear manual, use the sampler nice ... Not good grip in qq minutes away ..
only problem is that you know by heart the banks of effects or a list handy
I used to be the effects on my guitar with a AC30 or as sampler generator crazy sounds with a microphone or other source

SOUND QUALITY

sound quality, realistic effects and sometimes surprising.
Especially one buys a kp for the dose that generates random (or at least that the placement of the finger on the pad causes)
suddenly sometimes not easy to have mastered qqchose of 100% but that's the beauty of her ^ ^

OVERALL OPINION

3 years I use c the top begins to get a little cum because I talk like my liver but I think it's reliable gear kan even register ..
twelve o'clock nice pr function controler vst
finally the fact that money .. at worst buy OCCAZ it also works

the KAOSS pad is a unique accessory of its kind! not comparable
.. just depends on your needs but it's KAOSS pti zizir!

Kostra's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Simple but hurts the ears has long"

Korg Kaoss Pad 3 KP3
Already mentioned elsewhere -

UTILIZATION

It's simple, not to say. The edition of the sounds is as easy touch ... The main interest of the beast was indeed in a studio.

SOUND QUALITY

Ben the good, it is therefore Korg protegez your ears. The little machine is made for rave parties or clubs who scoff at the sound quality, provided that the sound is loud.
So outlaw machine in my studio: asymmetriques taken (noise + + + +), degradation of sound quality, delay. An army of plug-ins are and the vast majority sounds better.
But why should I care? To quickly test ideas mainly. Once I have the effect I want, I'm looking for its equivalent in my library of effects (I'm using ProTools & Live) and I forget the eteinds & KP3.

OVERALL OPINION

The KP3 is a Swiss Army knife sharpens wrong. Its simplicity it somewhat less Pietre quality.

tagj3r's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Korg Kaoss Pad 3 KP3
Everything has already been said about it: good effects, number, intelligently classified, 6 batteries (mostly loops), and a 10aine synths (controllable from the KP but also via midi).
In stereo sound (from end to end: stereo inputs, stereo outputs).

I personally use it on a mixer or directly behind an instrument, so I would have preferred I / O jack rather than RCA but it's still a detail.

UTILIZATION

The manual is useless, the beast is very intuitive!

Everything happens very simply, this is where we look for and what is under the fingers. No menu extension, everything is accessible.

You can even connect what you want to trigger midi effects.

(PS: Well I confess, I can not remember the manipulation to realign the sampled loops back to the rhythm ... but whenever I go back mn small manual I say "oh yes it is true, that makes sense ")

SOUND QUALITY

DJ effects are typed (that is to say, to me they sound even better on the overall mix on a particular instrument).

I use it mainly on my mix as well, but also live in groups (I put our instrumentals in a mixer and I send all the Kaoss Pad, which re-enters a portion of the console).

Finally, I also used to play alone, usually in my ass piano (Nord Stage Ex). It usually starts with a drum loop of Kaoss, I add a bass line on the piano, then a layer of Wurlitzer to fill, and then I keep the fourth "track" to save the Kaoss stuff voice. By turning you say "go, just 5 min." 2h after you're still trying to have fun.

Sup detail: the stereo makes it very very well.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for more than 2 years. As it was not really a direct competitor I tried other models in the range (KP1, KP2, and miniKP KPQuad), but this is by far my favorite!

The value is a safe bet, and I will not have to redo this choice because I do not divide them. Moreover, secondhand, we see not the masses. Proof that once there, you do not let go.
