Korg Mini KAOSS Pad 2S Touchpad Instrument

Korg added a sampler to the MiniKP2! Record from the 1/8" input or built-in mic, then swipe the X/Y pad to add fat filters, glitchy stutter effects and more.

A powered-up mini kaoss pad 2, the mini kaoss pad 2S ("S" for sampler) is a powerful DJ effect unit that fits in the palm of your hand. It includes the familiar KORG touchpad, which allows you to intuitively control 100 different effects, and a sampler function that makes it easy to load and trigger a variety of sounds. Whether you are playing or performing, you'll have more fun than ever with the powerful mini kaoss pad 2S.

A Sampler DJs Can Use Live

The sampler function lets you prepare sound effects or voice samples, and use them in your DJ work or live performance. According to your needs, you can choose from three methods of playback: One Shot, Gate, and Loop. You can also change the playback speed (pitch change) and specify the playback start position (cue point). In addition, the sample recorder lets you capture sounds that input via either the line-in or the built-in mic.

You can also use the unit as a conventional audio player; save your favorite songs on a card and use the mini kaoss pad 2S to apply effects for fun. No other equipment is required.

A touch pad to control effects freely

You can intuitively control effects in real-time by stroking the touch pad with your fingertip. There are one hundred built-in effect programs, ideal for DJ mixing and controlling the sound. When you take your finger off the touchpad, the FX RELEASE automatically adds a delay effect so that the effect blends smoothly into your song or performance, and avoids abrupt read more effect dropouts.


- Three Program Memories for instant recall of your favorite effects.
- The Hold function freezes the effect parameters based on your finger's current location on the touchpad for hands-free operation.
- Auto BPM detection syncs the applicable effects to the tempo of the song, so that everything continues to move in sync for a professional performance.
- The built-in mic lets you apply effects to your voice.
- Record your mini kaoss pad 2s performances in WAV format using the master recorder function.
- Battery operation and a built-in speaker let you perform anytime, anywhere. (Batteries not included.)
- 6 Preset audio demo loops are stored in the internal memory. These demo loops provide a handy audio source that can be used to immediately audition the various effect programs, without having to hook up an external audio player.

Dope little piece. Get the adapter, because you will use it often in the lab- hint, the zoom h4/h4n adapter works. Not a huge difference from the MiniKp2, besides dedicated sample recording/triggering- which after I got it, I really haven't employed. Also works as a nice field recorder for mobile music like rocking your Volcas in the woods.
