Audiofanzine FR's review

Korg MiniKP
(Originally written by UraHellios/translated from Audiofanzine FR)

Important: 10-dB gain reduction!
So you must have a mixer with over 15 dB headroom if you want to have the possibility to set the track level lower.
The effects are very good compared to those of a Nuo 5, a Djm 400 and a Vestax Pmc 580 pro!
But you'll need some time to master all its features because each effect works on both axis, is affected by the global delay effect and can have several intensities.
It's not so easy in the beginning and the first minutes can be really disappointing.
Although the grid has limited resolution, certain effects use intermediate steps to produce flowing intensity sweeps.

UTILIZATION

Excellent user's manual and rather fast learning curve. The more you use it the more you like it.
It's only weakness is that the intensity can't be set directly with the knob.
Not very intuitive nor fast and you have to get used to it.

SOUND QUALITY

The only thing I can criticize is the 10 dB level reduction. All effects sound good and do what they are supposed to do. The sound is very good except in the headphone output.
The delay effects are really interesting because you can instantly switch between an eighth note and whole note, which is impossible with most mixers that require you to switch stepwise.


OVERALL OPINION

Consider the Mini KP as an excellent portable effects processor. You must be aware of its capabilities before you purchase it, and once you do you must spend some time with it to make the most of all its possibilities.
I recommend to plug it directly to a turntable.

Value for money ratio is 10/10 with the right mixer.

Korg MiniKP
full effect available
not editable on PC, but who cares
not rackable
digital sound
1 headphone mini jack, stereo RCA for input and output

UTILIZATION

easy to use
the manual is satisfactory.

SOUND QUALITY

the same effects on the KP3, nothing was wrong

triplet: kaossillator> minikp> KP3

OVERALL OPINION

I use it since 2008

The perfect companion kaossillator

Portable, full of sound effects that make the kaossillator less polite, this is the MOST

A big problem of noise on many mixing desk, this is the great LESS

I prefer largely the KP3 I had the same price patiquement used (but it was a fluke)

If you think buying the kaossillator, take the minikp also, they are inseparable (I even made a custom presentation case and a common supply)

Do not buy it if you intend to plug it into a mixing desk.

Korg MiniKP
I paid € 150 I am disappointed I sold a € 60 5 months later.
For use deejing => The volume that comes out of the device (mini kp) is divided by 2 so I put the''gain''at MAX on my mixer, it is very disturbing (it's DIY ).
Only + -15 remarkable effects INNUTILE the rest, the quality of effects is bad (it gives you a headache after 20 minutes).
The hold is innutilisable (you do not know or is there is no LED)

With experience, you do again this choice? ...
NO
How would you rate the quality / price?
Too expensive for ca, c is a toy nothing more (well to be plugged into an iPod to play music).

So I'd advise against it.
If you want a good advice to the efx-500 pioneer home + d € -300 occasion.

Korg MiniKP
Lots of effects we will not return it. c is not the rack and connected by RCA in / out. Touch is a pav X / Y where you can either drag a finger am "type" above, with two buttons for the memories and a "tap tempo".

UTILIZATION

I did two effects is that the "dub delay" and "vinyl looper" c everything, but I ca suffit.le dub delay is very good because it changes the tonality of the effect qd quatization we change the delay j loves the sound and more can a filthy it's been good roots. for vinyl looper he can wrap a measuring and ca c cool: In addition we can tap it for the snare or the bass drum a bit like his live DJ KRUSH ds (j have a long search for a box that could have fx ca J will never think that this little thing could do). the handling is very fast qq hours history learn about the paving and test all effects. effects are super kitsh against by the synth and flanger etc ... st not be used (at the same tps they would not use it much I even qd).

SOUND QUALITY

The sound quality is not but phew it goes, anyway the guy stuff before you capteron no difference so it's enough. is something one can also dbile nivau c is the output that is too low: t force d augmanter 7 decibels more noise output bestiauxsinon t hear anything (bizar) to overcome this error I have put the on the edge of my Nuo 2 3 and c nikel but otherwise J will not have, fortunately that I have two sound sources.

OVERALL OPINION

I love me Well there's what I need with two effects c the rest is good too but I m ​​not used (for now). I probably do it again this choice al future because it suits me and the report qualitprix is ​​very well I think. I like well use this little pad. j j adore.sinon had a sp 303 and a box 404 also has effects that were good too but less than the simple and less suited to my needs.

M.A.N.U.'s review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Korg MiniKP
For résumé, it includes 100 effects (99 0). Phasers, delays, chorus, filters, pseudo-pitch shifters, looper type "vinyl", "reverse" or otherwise ... There is something for all tastes.

Level connection, well it remains in the basic, RCA in / out.

Without prtention, the height of my expectations.

UTILIZATION

Well, nothing to say here eh. We touch, we do mumuse and made noise.

SOUND QUALITY

EDIT to 13 December 2007:

The sound quality is worth the price, we'll say. It's fun to play around with but it does better with an XY Controller twelve o'clock and good effects software. In addition, it boosts the signal ds carrment we apply an effect or it decreases the ... This is according to the presets and mood. It amplifies the frquences dsagrables lot anyway.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for two weeks, I love ct "touch'n'play" I had bought for loop "noise" while I change my loops and lives during this time. And finally I use all the weirdest effects. Memory A and B. .. A shame that does not go up to E, at least :-)

EDIT to 13 December 2007:

It's a nice toy. A buy OCCAZ for fun at home, or live but I think the KAOSS PAD 1, 2 and 3 should even be better when ... Anyway finally I do not use it in my config ... Bah, even when it's nice.

Korg MiniKP
The effects are cool, I can not compare with other KAOSS pad because I did not: p Especially useful for the effects loop, which are resolved bpm ... 100 effects in all, many delays and filters, looper 20, 10 synths (great for drum) ...

Really small I not expect that ..

RCA connectors, battery powered ...

UTILIZATION

Simple and effective ... very brief but adequate manual ...

SOUND QUALITY

BIG SOUND! Good effects but not all good useful ....

OVERALL OPINION

Very good value for money, it beats in my opinion no other kp but it is not the point .. Very portable and efficient roughly ..

If I lose or break it, I buy a live ...
