The Korg Kaossilator Pro Plus Dynamic Phrase Synthesizer is the ideal instrument for anyone who's looking to pick up a synthesizer but has no keyboard skills, or even any musical background whatsoever. It's a powerful sequencing synthesizer that comes preloaded with 250 synth programs designed to cover the whole range of modern musical styles.

Play On The Pad

Product Description

The Korg KOPro Kaossilator Pro Plus Dynamic Phrase Synthesizer lets you perform and create multi-layered music in any style -- with just the touch of a finger. The Kaossilator series was the forerunner of unique instruments that made it easy for anyone to play musical melodies and phrases. The Kaossilator Pro, which appeared in 2010, was a highly-evolved model featuring a rich variety of sounds and loop recording functionality that made it not merely a live performance instrument, but also a track-making tool.

Freely Playable Synthesizer

2013 brings us to the upgraded Kaossilator Pro+. With additional sound programs and drum sounds Kaossilator Pro+ has been supercharged to offer even more variety and exploration.

The unique interface allows musical melodies and phrases to be played with ease by simply stroking, tapping, or rubbing the touchpad. Horizontal motions control the pitch; vertical motions control aspects of the tone, such as filter cutoff, feedback, or modulation depth.

The intuitive design and flexibility of the touchpad allows users who are not keyboard players to perform easily. Users can create performances that are rich with tonal changes that could not be produced on a conventional keyboard instrument.

A total of 250 sound programs

The Kaossilator Pro+ is packed with the cutting-edge synth sounds that you have come to expect from Korg. There are 50 additional programs in the Kaossilator Pro+, bringing the total program count to 250!

62 of these sounds are drawn directly from current musical genres, including familiar and extremely useful leads, and synth basses, along with sound effects for DJ use. Of particular note are the 26 drum sounds that have been especially enhanced. Updated drum PCM includes sounds from the acclaimed Wavedrum percussion synth for even greater performance variety.

With just a single Kaossilator Pro+ you can perform hip-hop, chiptune, house, dubstep, disco, electro, reggaeton, and drum 'n' bass...or create your own genre!

Loop Recording function

Loop Recording can be set for up to four measures (16 beats.) Performances on the Kaossilator Pro+ can be recorded into any of the four onboard internal Loop Recorder Banks. By adding (overdubbing) additional sounds one at a time, you can create amazing looped phrases that range from minimal to fully orchestrated.. The four banks can be combined for virtually infinite performance possibilities. Each of the four loop banks can be muted or un-muted, its volume adjusted, and its loop length changed, making live performance easy for anyone.

The Kaossilator Pro+ provides line inputs and a mic input to allow for the recording of external audio sources as well. This makes it easy to add a vocal, or audio from any external device to any loop phrase created on the Kaossilator Pro+.

Musical Scale, Key, and Note Range help create musical performances

Even if you've never played a musical instrument, the Kaossilator Pro+'s Key and Scale features ensure that the notes being played will match the song being performed. Use the Key setting to specify the musical key or root. Choose any of 35 scales, ranging from popular scales such as chromatic, major pentatonic, and minor blues, as well as unusual scales such as Spanish, Ryukyu, and Raga. By using both the Key and Scale settings to match the song, you can play perfect solos without a single wrong note. In addition, the Note Range allows you to specify the range of playable pitches. You can set this to a narrow range to ensure that melodies will be played accurately as you intend, or to an extremely wide range to allow unexpectedly dynamic and unconventional phrases to emerge.

The Gate Arpeggiator function lets you control phrases with complete freedom.

The built-in gate arpeggiator patterns can automatically generate phrases and beats by simply moving a finger across the touchpad. Use the slider to change the gate time and gate speed in real time for cool performances.

Pad LEDs ensure excellent visibility even in the dark.

The pad LEDs light up along the path of your finger, letting you play without difficulty even on a dimly lit stage. The four loop recording LEDs have been changed to a more intuitively obvious illumination pattern than on the Kaossilator Pro, and now light red during recording and green during playback.

Highly Expandable

With MIDI IN/OUT jacks and a USB port, it's easy to control external MIDI devices. Loop data and user settings such as programs can be stored on an SD/SDHC card. There's also the Kaossilator Pro+ Editor* which provides librarian functionality for your loop data as well as a MIDI assignment editor.

* Runs on Microsoft Windows XP (SP3 or later) / Vista (SP2 or later) / 7 (SP1 or later) / 8, and on Mac OS X 10.5 or later.

*This will be available for download free of charge from the Korg website.

Plays nicely together with Kaossilator 2

Data you recorded on the Kaossilator Pro+ can be exported for use with the kaossilator 2, and data recorded on the kaossilator 2 can be loaded by the Kaossilator Pro+, sharing the BPM and other settings. The possibilities are endless; sophisticated performance data from the Kaossilator Pro+ can be loaded into the kaossilator 2 and taken with you, or kaossilator 2 performance data you recorded elsewhere can be brought back for use on the Kaossilator Pro+.

* Interoperability will be enabled by a system update for the kaossilator 2. The system update is expected to be available in January 2013.

Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (3 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Cool Product for the Money!"
Overall: way quicker to set up and start using than my MPC, the interface is intuitive, responsive, and fun! the huge bank of sounds and beats is more suited to dubstep and techno, but hey, you weren't looking for a Korg to make death metal on, were you? go ahead, buy it, watch a few tutorials, and i guarantee even a 'net troll will be making beats the 1st day!

"Don't Let Korg Rip you off!!"
Overall: I called Korg to see if they are going to update the previous model with the extra 50 sounds and they said no there will be no update! This company spits in the face of their customers as they try to bleed an extra $400 from us for 50 new sounds! this is unbelievable and no one should buy this because of that. Roland and other companies have all given updates. Next year you can probably expect the Kaossilator pro 2 to hit you for another $400. If you don't feel ripped off then by all means buy it!
Style of Music: rock, metal, electronic
