    Pro but apparently still CAR! if I see the photo.
    Pro would also mean use of CSOs.

    Huge disappointment following a very big weakness

    Korg Kaossilator ProPublished on 12/17/12 at 16:37

    J will not dwell here ... everything has already been told repeatedly.

    Already the first spot in the table ... the presets are completely frozen. Impossible to assign this effect we want abscissa and ordinate. Frankly I think for any liveur that respect, it really sucks.

    But it is not the number one criticism that I do in KAOSSILATOR

    UTILIZATION

    Using ultra simple, it sounds quite nice out very quickly ...

    Two large pb in my opinion:

    1. The less disturbing when these loop phrases, recording does not stop at the last measurement (as is the case for electribes ...). must be very accurate if the sounds overdub.

    2. Here it is ... The enormous black dot!

    2. Here it is ... The enormous black dot!
    Sync twelve o'clock does the bpm! No Start Stop! C is really unacceptable. To specify a little for those who have not grasped. You do a little session with other machines, you save your loops. The next day you resume where you left off, and your loops will be more savvy, though!
    Can not claim to be a live track or even under these conditions. All korgs and even the oldest features the start stop is the BABA. The only solution was to return the samples consisting of loops in software or machinery in any case if you leave them in the KAOSSILATOR .... and ben is dead.

    SOUND QUALITY

    The cons with nothing to say, the textures are rich and the sound is very good.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Following this problem MIDI I sold after three weeks. I have found it important to give my opinion because if I had read here before my purchase, I would turn to something else.
    However, if you intend to use this instrument only "pure live" so to speak, that is absolutely not the creation phase, it can be interesting. Otherwise you will need to go through a software.

    Short as I did not watch the MIDI, I thought "CE KAOSSILATOR is really nice, it will truly enriched my textures électribes" And then, "No, but it is not possible there must be a solution" and then "OK I sold this machine runt"

    I'm probably a little hard but sorry ... for me it does not really happening, really badly korg MIDI thought, how can we make such a mistake!

    the korg understand a loop editor that can record up to 4 concurrent live track. It can also record your favorite loops or in a SD (memory cell 100) or directly into your PC using a USB cable or twelve o'clock. Only drawback, it can not load the loop for an active reading. You can connect a microphone (XLR), a disable input and headphone input jack for plugging in any other instrument in order to record directly into your loops.

    KAOSSILATOR handling is extremely simple! there is a free software download that allows tranfer the USB and Midi files in 2 directions and that is just as easy to use. Even someone who is not a musician can use it without problem. The hand touch is attractive and is also very sensitive.

    SOUND QUALITY

    The type of sounds is based primarily on electro sounds, but there are also some sounds of acoustic intruments like piano, drums, guitar or bass that are sufficiently realistic and surprisingly for this type of console.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 2 years and I never tire of it! combined with the Kaoss Pad 3 it is a combination of professional live! the pro Kaossilator makes sounds and KAOSS PAD 3 lets you manipulate any sound emitted by external (microphone / voice, piano, etc. ... KAOSSILATOR). The value for money is really exellent! It is very advantageous especially for the live or even a trip in a personal session electro.

    alot of fun

    Korg Kaossilator ProPublished on 10/11/11 at 21:15
    The Kaossilator is Real-Time like KP3 and You can create Loops up to 4 Measures. Electronica is Loop-Based. So this is a fabulous device. It has little in the unit for FX unlike the KP3 which is loaded with FX tweak Samples. This is a fantastic device and I LOVE this thing. It can record external instruments of all sorts but You need RCA end cables to the Korg unit Kaossilator and KP3 and You'd need a dual 1/4 TS-to- RCA ends to record into these units in Stereo... or a TRS 1/4"-to-RCA ends.

    UTILIZATION

    You can export both WAV and AIFF files to the Korg units... BUT... it Exports as WAV, so if You use Logic/Garageband then You need to find online converter software like Switch to convert the WAV Files to AIFF. The Editor Software allows You to do vast tweaks and edits to the Loops You create and export them back to Korg units or keep on file once edited... BUT be aware they will be WAV Files so You have to convert them to AIFF if You're Mac Logic/Garageband. WAV is a Windows/Microsoft set-up.

    SOUND QUALITY

    It has 200 Factory Synth Sounds. and a very hip Gated Arpeggiator that You can tweak too. All of the factory synth preset sounds that come with Kaossilator Pro are great. More than you would expect to get out of an affordable piece of gear like this. Just check it out for yourself you will be amazed.


    OVERALL OPINION

    The Kaossilator is Real-Time like KP3 and You can create Loops up to 4 Measures. Electronica is Loop-Based. So this is a fabulous device. It has little in the unit for FX unlike the KP3 which is loaded with FX tweak Samples. This is fun and I think Parents ought to get this for children to play and learn Music on. Also it has a grounding screw for hooking into a rig like a DJ/VJ which a lot of hardware doesn't have.

    The effects and filters are clean as well, however, I do not think we can change them according to preset (totally invented example: preset low No. 42 which has a style Flanger FX X / Y; preset synth n No. 66 that a delay in FX bin and can not interchange °, the coup is a bit stiff.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've since December but I just did a compulsive purchase, and finally I tell myself I should have taken the red, let me explain:
    He has very good rhythm, synths interesting, some big bass, all lined with a nice little range of effects (with a big damper on the frozen look, see above) that using the screen via touch screen makes it very pleasant and your fun, but good j'travaille already Machine + pc so I still do what synth and rhythm, whereas with the red I would have had only a multiFX for use in FXsend / return, with 250 effects (green also has this feature but with only 15 effects).

    In fact, for me, the main fault lies in the MIDI connection, let me explain again:
    When I plug in MIDI to other devices, and that I put in synchroEXT he is receiving the signal of BPM but not the Start / Stop, c ie if I play on my master element to 140 bpm, aligns the KAOSS slave bpm there, but when I start the clock (when I run all my stuff) and the bin kaoss not share with everyone, I'm obliged to hand launched, which means to be super good call, whereas with my other machines, when I run the sound on my pc (which is the master), I have three machines that start automatically and which follow, even changes in bpm during execution, and suddenly, it starts not, it's great C-Scrap ...

    The big plus is the KaossPro Edditor:
    So I save any small loop synthesizer or rhythm real-time effects, and everything, and then I save, I plug in USB to my PC, I get the wav file that I important in AbletonLive and there as I want 'em reworks.

    Hoping to have helped ...

    Connectivity:
    - USB
    - MIDI in / out
    - Mic In (Jack)
    - Headphone Out (Jack)
    - RCA Output

    Memory:
    - SD card slot

    Editing utility:
    - Not available (07/03/2010)

    UTILIZATION

    The manual is almost useless but clear.
    If we used a Kaosspad KP3, it will not hurt to understand the use of buttons.
    Touching of the touchpad is really nice (like on the kaosspad). The 200 sounds available are very good, there are the classics and other new KAOSSILATOR. It is very easy to create loops and assign them to one of four keys on the bottom.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I bought it yesterday. I use it so recently.
    At first glance, it's a good machine, full of possibilities, easy to take in hand.
    I already kaosspad, and KAOSSILATOR electribe emx.
    If I had to look at KAOSSILATOR (yellow), I would say:
    + More tools
    + Save possibility of multiple loops
    + Possibility to save on SD card
    + More options
    + Hit more accurate

    - I did not find the different types of Arpegiator KAOSSILATOR as the yellow. You can choose the speed, but ... no pattern.

    Another big flaw, the editing program is not yet available.
    I will publish my opinion when I have used more.

    UTILIZATION

    Very easy to use for those who had little Kaoss. Even for beginners it's still a machine accessible.
    Seeking, there are features that are not clearly outlined in the manual:
    For example, for the arpeggiator, I do not really understand how to use it at the beginning: we must first choose using the switch speed mode and then choose what we want (0.5 by example) then switch back time to have fun with this speed there.

If you want to change the speed, it need to go back the other way etc.. Besides the small flaw of this is that famous kaoss switch that is not really accessible at the rear: a button on the front would have been better.

    No editions of sound either, it would have been more significant. Maybe in a future update who knows?

    As for downloadable software, it allows you to set the config noon and programmable memories. Can save in eight banks, sounds with their own notes and octave interval which saves time live.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Very good sound especially in stereo effects. Batteries are actually a little more than provided in the small Kaoss. Besides most of the sounds of it have been included.
    For some cons make me feel to duplicate as closely (especially in the lower).
    The vocoders also pleasantly surprised me:)
    In all cases it is a very versatile machine even if it is oriented Electro / Dance.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Received 15 days there, I'm having always the same with. Within minutes we begin to make the pieces quite complete with.
    It's really the logical continuation of previous Kaoss: with the contribution of the 4 loops, it can bring a lot of dynamics and opportunities (including playing with the length and volume loops). And yet I still do not use the line inputs!
    It did seem like much this machine, but it has in its belly.

    In summary:
    The pros:
    - Very good sound
    - 4 loops
    - Backup program.

    The -:
    - Sounds non-editable (but good with line inputs or SD card can increase the already wide range of sounds available)
    - Button mode arpeggiator not very accessible at the rear.

No editing or sound effects, it is his weak point was quickly made the rounds of the 200 presets (ranging from excellent to completely Suck ...) So we have a little bit about his hunger stand alone. I used to be so in improv jam with friends (because even when it is almost enough to mix a base piece by itself through the sampler on 4 banks, so with some zicos who make arrangements for that we mix the basic rhythmic and harmonic, then torch it!) or to control my synths MC505, which allows me to take advantage of the interface that kills by expanding the sonic possibilities. I just put the score of 8 because of the inability to edit the presets.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Sounds, well, it depends on your taste ... There's some very good presets and other very poor or who are alike. And since they are not edited, well we have a little bit about his death ... The effects and filters, it is similar, it depends on the presets. Overall, I am sorry sounds a bit cold and too synthetic, no downstream processing is a bit ugly. Requires its good effects behind what ..

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for a little over 6 months now, and despite his absence I can not get enough and does not part with it. Before the purchase I had the small and mini KAOSSILATOR Kp I found excellent, although limited, which led me to acquire KaossPro which allows much more than its predecessor. What I like most is its touchscreen interface, with a choice of ranges and dominant y 'what improvise on anything without risk of false notes and that's too good! More needs to be high-level pianist to compose or do solos, it helps anyway. The value for money is good I think, if somewhat high for my taste, 250/300 euros in nine would have been more appropriate given the limitations of the machine. With experience, I would do without hesitation that choice because it is the only machine of this type, no equivalent of any brand with an interface as intuitive and well thought out, what makes you forgive him his faultless. An interface like this on a machine including a sequencer, with more banks and sounds would be the ultimate machine editable for me. In the meantime, I control my MC505 with the Kaoss, the MC505 sequence and a syncronise SP404 loaded block (including samples "in Kaoss madi") with the audio is resampled in the Kaoss, all hacked by various effects (including Mini-Kp). And frankly, it works well;)! A beautiful
