Review: Korg Kaossilator 2



The Korg Kaossilator 2 is a palm-size phrase synthesizer that can be played by anyone, at any place, and at any time. And boy is this thing fun!

Simply tap or slide your finger across the X-Y touchpad to access 150 built-in sounds covering every style of music. They’re divided into categories for easy-access; Synth Leads, Basses, Acoustic Instruments, Chorded Sounds, SE, Drum Kits and Rhythm Patterns.

The Kaossilator 2 combines PCM drums, modeling synthesis and two crossfade-able Loop Recorder banks for spectacular pocket power! The Kaossilator 2’s Dual Loop Recording Banks can overdub your touchpad performances as many times as you like. By adding layer upon layer to a simple phrase, it’s easy to create amazingly intricate tracks, and save it all using the microSD data slot. You’ve got to get your hands on one!

The video below shows you what the Kaossilator 2’s capable of:

Where the KO1 was a toy disguised as a tool, the KO2 is one of the sleekest and sexiest portable musical tools available to producers today! And it’s a steal at just $159.99.
