Korg adds another dimension to the already world-renowned family of Kaoss touchpad-based effect processors, with stackable effects on the Korg KPQUAD Kaoss Pad Quad Dynamic Effects Processor. Like any Kaoss pad, the Kaoss Pad Quad offers users the distinct tactile pleasure of controlling effect parameters on-the-fly with its large, touch-sensitive, illuminated, 2-D performance pad. What makes Kaoss Pad Quad special is its refined user experience. You get a streamlined palette of 20 effect programs that are easier and quicker to access -- and the ability to stack up to 4 effects simultaneously for truly out-of-this-world digital effect manipulation.

"Quad" means 4 Stackable Effects

With the ability to stack and manipulate up to four beat-sync-able effects simultaneously, the Kaoss Pad Quad takes the DJ or studio producer where no other effect processor can go. It's got four effect sections with five effect types each, and you can run all four effect sections at once, or any combination thereof. That allows for a total of 1,295 different effect combinations all right at your fingertips! What's more, on the Kaoss Pad Quad, all effects have their own button and can be triggered or muted directly from the top of the hardware -- just imagine, that's 1,295 different effects without scrolling through a list or entering a single submenu -- all fully controllable from an X/Y touchpad.

If you want to use your Korg Kaoss Pad as an effects box, the Quad is the way to go!

Product Description

Create your own combination of Kaoss effects, and simultaneously control up to four effects using a single fingertip. Introducing the Kaoss Pad Quad; it's Kaoss control evolved to a greater level.

Twelve years ago, the first-generation Kaoss Pad exploded onto the DJ/music scene with touchpad-based effect control. Since then, the overwhelming acceptance and popularity of the X-Y touchpad is evident in many Korg products - Kaoss Pad effects, the Kaossilator Series, the padKONTROL and nanoPAD controllers, even the exclusive M3 TouchView(tm) display - that are now standards in the scene. To this they add the Kaoss Pad Quad, with effects, functions, and features that truly stand out from the crowd.

As suggested by the name "Quad", this Kaoss Pad lets you use up to four effects simultaneously. These effects can be sync'ed to the beat of your music, to freely transform your song in realtime. Any audio source can be processed; an MP3 player, a mixing board, an instrument, even vocals via the mic input. The expressive performance potential that arises from the Kaoss Pad Quad leaves other effect units in the dust, and rapidly approaches the realm of an "instrument". The brilliant and colorful LED touchpad illumination adds a strong sense of individuality, further enhancing the Kaoss Pad Quad's unique character.

The Kaoss Pad Quad will enthrall everyone. The intense user can engage in highly technical performances; the casual user can enjoy DJ-like fun. Either way, the audience will be equally captivated. The interest and depth emanating from this instrument is sure to touch every listener.

Four Simultaneous Effects

Kaoss Pad Quad lets you simultaneously control up to four effects from the touchpad. Each of the four effect modules - Looper; Modulation; Filter; and Delay/Reverb - contains five options (plus a null, or off position), for a total of 1,295 combinations. Best of all, effects can be chosen directly from the front panel, a more intuitive and physical process than on previous Kaoss Pad models. Enjoy trying your own Kaoss combinations and discovering ways to radically morph the sound.

By rhythmically adding successive effects, or switching effects on and off as your song progresses, you can use the Kaoss Pad Quad to add variation and development to the structure of your song. In other words, even a simple beat can potentially be transformed into a killer tune that will whip the dance floor into a frenzy. In addition to being an enormous asset to the professional, the Kaoss Pad Quad is also great fun for the casual user. It is extremely straightforward and easy to use; just touch the pad to apply effects. Connect a portable audio player or any audio source, and begin enjoying hours of sound creation and manipulation. Once you get started, you'll lose all track of time.

Hands-free Effects

For each of the four effect modules, there's a Freeze button that memorizes the position at which you're touching the touchpad, causing that effect to be held even after you release your finger. If you touch the touchpad again while Freeze is enabled, only the non-frozen effects will be controlled. You can achieve even higher levels of performance freedom by using the four Freeze buttons in conjunction with the effect type buttons.

Reengineered Effects

In addition to more traditional effects, the Kaoss Pad Quad offers many types of effects:

Multi-Mode Looper

Use the touchpad to loop part of your song; the number of beats is controlled by the location you touched. Three types of looping are provided; the standard Looper; the Rev Looper (Reverse Looper) which plays the looped phrase backward; and the Loop Slicer, which divides the phrase and lets you loop-play only a specific portion. You can switch between the different looper types by sliding your finger up and down the touchpad as the loop plays, producing radical beats on a whim. Using these sophisticated loop tools makes it easy to ignite a frenzy on the dance floor.

Vinyl Break Turntable Effects

The first effect lets you slide your finger up and down on the touchpad to simulate the scratch sounds that can be produced on a turntable. Next, if you leave your finger on the touchpad without moving it, you can also create the effect of gradually slowing the playback speed to a stop, just as when you stop the rotation of a turntable. This realistic sound is highly usable as part of a DJ performance, allowing even a beginner to feel like an experienced DJ.

Ducking Comp

This creates the distinctive "ducking compressor" effects that have become a staple in music production. By boosting the sound level during off-beats of the kick drum, this effect can expressively transform your sound in very musical ways.

Stay in Sync

The proprietary Auto BPM engine automatically detects the tempo/BPM (Beats Per Minute) of the song that's playing or the audio source. Using this function allows BPM effects such as delay to remain in sync with the song. Tap Tempo is also provided; you can press the TAP button several times at the desired tempo to set the appropriate BPM value even for a song that does not have a strong rhythmic feel or whose BPM is difficult to detect. You can also use the BPM knob to make fine adjustments.

Features

- Brilliant, colorful LED touchpad illuminations move in sync with your performance
- Control multiple effects in realtime using the intuitive Kaoss X-Y touchpad
- Create your own Kaoss combinations and use up to four effects at once
