Kaossilator pro sera tan bueno?

#1 por Iernesto el 29/03/2010
Wenas no sabia donde poner este post porque aunque el nuevo kaossilator puede ser una herramienta muy valida en estudio su diseño pide a gritos que lo uses en una cabina. En concepto del primero me llamo la atencion pero la carencia de midi hizo que me olvidara de el. Pero el nuevo Kaossilator tiene una pinta alucinante. La verdad no sabria que destacar, me parece una mezcla entre un kaosspad y una electribe. Aqui estan las especificaciones:
KORG KAOSSILATOR PRO
Dynamic Phrase Synthesizer/Loop Recorder

Announcing the KAOSSILATOR PRO – a supercharged version of the palm-sized KAOSSILATOR, reborn as a powerful track-making tool and loaded with live performance power.

As a trailblazer among the "instrumental gadgets" that allowed anyone to easily create melodies and phrases, the KAOSSILATOR gained a strong and dedicated user base, even among those without any performing experience. Today, the KAOSSILATOR continues to be enormously popular. Retaining these revolutionary features – while adding a wide variety of new ones as well – is the new KAOSSILATOR PRO. With 200 sound programs, a new Electribe-inspired gate arpeggiator, and four loop recording banks that can even record external audio sources, the KAOSSILATOR PRO is packed with features that make it ideal for both live performance and premium productions. In addition, USB connectivity with your computer and SD card memory storage allow the KAOSSILATOR PRO to be used not just for improvised performances, but also as a superbly intuitive, track-making music production tool.

Main features

KAOSS X-Y touchpad offers intuitive, realtime control


200 sounds covering modern synth sounds such as lead and bass, and diverse acoustic sounds from piano to trumpet and beyond


PCM samples provide dramatic drum kits and ready to rock percussion patterns


Vocoder programs deliver scintillating vocal effects


Access up to eight of your favorite sounds instantly using the assignable Program Memory buttons

Choose a key and select one of 31 musical scales to easily create musical phrases. Limit the X-Y pad's note range for even more control


Loop data, user settings and Program Memories can be stored on SD card


Dedicated software lets you manage loop data, MIDI assignments, and user settings from your computer


Performs double-duty as a MIDI controller for external equipment or software applications
Intuitive X-Y touchpad
Using touchpad is highly intuitive – simply rub, stroke, or tap it to instantly create complex phrases with a single finger. Responding instantly to these gestures, the KAOSSILATOR PRO creates spontaneous changes that were difficult to produce on synthesizers of the past. Horizontal motions control the pitch, while the vertical axis can control tone parameters such as cutoff, feedback, or modulation depth. This makes it easy for anyone to create entirely original sounds and musical phrases.

200 exciting programs
Korg's synthesizer technology – acclaimed by top musicians around the world – has been carefully distilled into the KAOSSILATOR PRO. The versatile array of pro-level sounds includes synths, drums, FX and other instruments. These sounds complement all styles of electronic and dance music including techno, house, breaks, hip hop, R&B, reggae, and electro. There are also numerous acoustic instruments such as piano, trumpet, and guitar, providing a further boost to your expressive resources. You can assign your favorite programs to the eight Program Memory buttons for instant recall, ensuring that your live performances will be smooth.

Extensively enhanced drum sounds
Rhythm can be the most important element when creating a phrase. In addition to the modeling synthesis borrowed from the original KAOSSILATOR, the KAOSSILATOR PRO provides a new PCM sound generator as well, offering even more realistic drum sounds arranged in kits across the X-Y pad. There are twenty different one-shot sounds for kick, snare, and hi-hat etc., as well as twenty-five rhythm loop patterns to spark your creativity.

Vocoder programs for creative audio effects
The KAOSSILATOR PRO features a mic input jack and fifteen types of vocoder programs, making it easy to achieve unique sound effects, create robot voices and more.

Thirty-one scales for musical expressiveness
The thirty-one types cover a range from chromatic scales to major, minor, blues and beyond. By specifying a scale and key, you can use a single finger to play perfect melodies and phrases that would be difficult to play even on a keyboard. There are also special scales such as Spanish, Ryukyu, and Raga, letting you play phrases that have a distinctive flavor. Another boost in expressive power is provided by the new Note Range function, which lets you specify the range of pitches available on the touchpad from a single octave up to eight octaves.

Gate Arpeggiator provides tightly sync'ed grooves
Inspired by the EMX-1 and ESX-1 Electribes, the new Gate Arpeggiator allows you to play a pattern of sounds that are always in sync with the tempo, generating phrases that defy imagination. The KAOSSILATOR PRO's slider can control the gate time or gate speed, allowing even more complex phrases to be produced. Tempos can be set manually, or on the fly using the Tap Tempo function.

Loop Recording with unlimited overdubbing
Loop Recording can be set for up to four measures /16 beats. Your KAOSSILATOR PRO musical performances can be recorded into one of the Loop Recorder Banks. By adding (overdubbing) additional sounds one at a time, you can create amazing loop phrases by repeating the cycle of selecting a sound, playing a phrase, and recording the sound over and over again.

Four Loop Recording Banks allow DJ-style performances
The KAOSSILATOR PRO provides four Loop Recording Banks. These banks can be combined for virtually infinite performance possibilities. Each of the four loop banks can host infinite overdubs. In addition, each bank can be muted or un-muted, its volume adjusted, and its loop length changed, making dynamic live performances easy for anyone. An unneeded loop can be erased during playback, and a new one recorded, so there's no need to stop the performance.

Loop Recording using an external source
The KAOSSILATOR PRO provides line inputs and a mic input, allowing loop recording using an external audio source. This makes it easy to add a rap, vocal, or audio from an external device to any loop phrase created on the KAOSSILATOR PRO.

USB + MIDI provides versatility and compatibility
The KAOSSILATOR PRO offers standard MIDI IN/OUT connectors. In addition, the USB connector lets you use your computer to back up the loop recording data, or even drop loops into your favorite DAW. The KAOSSILATOR PRO can also control your software applications or an external MIDI device. The KAOSSILATOR PRO can send or receive MIDI clock.

Convenient SD Card* data storage
The KAOSSILATOR PRO provides an SD card slot for storing loop data and user settings such as program memories. Favorite phrases can be saved to build up a collection of loop data that will inspire your musical arrangements. SD Card storage also allows you to create the same show with the same loops, night after night. You can also swap loops with other KAOSSILATOR PRO users, or use your data in multiple units.
* not compatible with SDHC cards and SDXC cards.

Dedicated Editor / Librarian Software
KAOSSILATOR PRO Editor is a dedicated software program for managing your recorded loop data, as well as MIDI assignment editor functionality that lets you transform the KAOSSILATOR PRO into a powerful MIDI controller that's set up just the way you want. KAOSSILATOR PRO Editor can be downloaded free of charge from the Korg website.
* Runs on Microsoft Windows XP (SP3 or later) / Vista (SP2 or later) / 7, and on Mac OS X 10.4 or later.
En fin, especificaciones midi(se puede usar como controlador), arpegiador, sinte, sampler, vocoder y esa pantalla a lo verde matrix :shock: Quien da mas? :D

Hey ese Surge..., :D joer la verdad es que si que marea un poco je :mrgreen: La duda que me surge es como sera el motor de sintesis que tiene el cacharrito este. Hombre no espero un analogico por ese precio + toda la funcionalidad que tiene...voy a echar un vistazo a algunos videos a ver...

Yo tengo el hermano pequeño, el primer Kaossilator que salió y al menos en la caja pone que el modelado de la síntesis es analógico. Estoy bastante contento con él, la única pega, que al carecer de MIDI es un poco mas complicado sincronizarlo con lo que está sonando. El resto, en cuanto a sonidos y demas está bastante bien en mi opinión.

Es que por eso mismo no me lo compre en su momento. El concepto me gusto pero la carencia de midi me echo pa atras...Segun reza en las caracteristicas puedes tocar melodías que de otra forma no se podria, osea que ni con un teclado midi vamos..., la unica pega que tenia era sobre si el motor de sintesis estaba a la altura asi que si tu me dices que el de la generacion anterior era decente es de esperar que al menos este sea igual...mmmmmmmm interesante.... :mrgreen:

Hombre, soy un novato en lo que a Sintes se refiere. A mi los sonidos me parecen bastante decentes para tratarse de un aparato de estas características, aun así, sin MIDI no creas que queda corto en cuanto a posibilidades, yo lo veo muy bien para los Lives en combinación con otra cosa (Ableton, etc)

realmente las notas están en un eje, no recuerdo si el de las X o el de las Y, es decir, en un eje esta la tonalidad y en otro en función del programa que cargues tendrás un parámetro a manejar. El concepto parece muy lioso, pero a la hora de tocarlo no se hace tan complicado. Recuerdo que cuando me lo regalaron, se lo enseñé al padre de un amigo que es teclista profesional y tocaba cosas chulisimas nada mas cogerlo...

Pues segun tengo entendido la escalas musicables son asignables y se encuentran en eje horizontal mientras que el eje vertical sirve para modificar parametros de los sonidos como corte de filtro,resonancia...etc. Supongo que no sera muy dificil visto lo visto en los videos... =D>
