Great concept! ergonomics nice!

By francky.rds, 28/05/2012
Bank of 150 patches sounds including rhythm patterns and kits for some really nice people.
Always a game on the touch pad but Kaossilator2 also takes a second surface touch - / + for all other orders (choice of patches, arpeggios, tempo settings menu and set up .... etc.)
The connector has changed from the K01 and the RCA Out were abandoned in favor of a single output headphone jack 3.5 mm. There is also at his side a 3.5mm jack input for microphone Assembled No MIDI possible. All sockets are grouped above the K02 (much more convenient and less embarrassing than the headphone jack in the box below the K01!)
Battery life: 5 hours with NIMH


The KASSILATOR 2 is much more ergonomic than was his predecessor. OLED screen displays end numbers legibly good information (name of the patch, scale, materialization of an arpeggio, no loops ... etc.)
Touch the slider to choose quickly between patches of other sounds. She is very sensitive (almost too) and allows for scrolling fast and slow selection and all other settings.

The main advantages of the new K02 are in my opinion:
Two loops simultaneously possible (not max 8)
possibilities for the Protection of loops on microSD
recording capabilities of a'' live'' MASTER played on the same SD card
Built-in microphone for voice sampler


Sounds are taken over much of K01mais there are new. 150 sounds (instead of 100) and in all registers. Some are very interesting ... others less so.
Kits and rhythmic drum patterns have been improved. They are more realistic and very well done overall. It also has the same type of percussion Conga ... and very nice acoustic!
No big changes for the game on the touch pad, so ... a few additional types of scale and a game on such diverse rhythmic patterns Really cool! As rhythmic possibilities!
There's a really nice synth pad (No. 79) and other Lead or chord sounds great (66-71-08-10-15)
Still a lot of bass sounds and some FX mode (noise filter, resonnance ...)
Overall the sounds of K02 are very well done.

Experience the difference with this is against the possibility of two simultaneous loops. One for the arpeggio, one for rhythm, for example. This is great, and we alternate rhythmic arpeggios, going from one to another, we change the loop 2 while running an ... etc ... etc ....
Endless possibilities with respect to K01 where sounds could only add a single loop. In fact at no manipulation to change to 16 steps, it will be a maximum of 8 max no matter what.

Here are some improvisations:

Backup to micro SD is a real improvement as not to lose its power loops and replay them at another time. One can also record and also its composition MASTER reproduce. Awesome and completely independent on the go. Really great!

The capture function with its built-in microphone is very useful to sample a voice in his loop. Biensur can make successive layers. It makes pretty good but it will work with headphones ...


The KAOSSILATOR 2 is an ideal instrument for portable music. Battery powered, it can spend some quality time in composing music with electro fun. The concept is simply brilliant!
Beware however, as the K01, it is capable of good and bad! The less inspired will only see the beeping of gloubiboulga.
But the top will musicos loops endlessly chained to the end of the night ...

Ideal to deploy his imagination nomad

Rather compact and sturdy, this little gem seems to me quite hungry against batteries.
In view of the use, ranging from choice of sounds, testing and creation, it may take several hours of madness and the batteries are hot ...
Registration loops and creations is not very easy.
We must walk in the menu and finally find (because it is at the end and there is a sense of defilement) backup option.
Various musical styles rather focus on electronic music but there adapts.


I was stupefied to discover a way to choose among the styles applied to the pad (Ionian, Locrian, etc.) to max 4 octaves and a "range max" (5 octaves?)
I find it a bit messy the different drum kit.

Note that there are two ways to record a loop and real-time mode that records continuously.
The final recording loops and creations in real time is not very easy, you have to walk through the menu and finally find (because it is at the end and there is a sense of defilement) The backup option.

Must catch the shot with the use of loops, there are only two but can OVERWRITE above all we want that gives us an infinite loop.

Extract the microsd card and shoo it retrieves his works on his PC to use.
I precise that it can be read in the KAOSSILATOR.

The recording mode records sound loop, not features (tempo, instrument, position the pad) which is a shame because it would have to make changes like changing the wrong notes on his PC by example and on replay The KAOSSILATOR.
A USB port would not have been denied ... : (


The sound in the headphones is excellent.
The internal speaker is pretty blah blah ...

I would have liked some possibilities of effects, but the coup was planned with the mini kaoss pad.
Damage, they can come out one day that KAOSSILATOR mix the two.


I use it for a very short time.
The main advantage of this thing is that you can create anything anywhere when you have the inspiration!
How many ideas will not be forgotten thanks to KAOSSILATOR ;)
I had already flashed the first KAOSSILATOR but the leap of purchase.
The kaoss II decided me thanks to its additional functions.

Still too expensive when it is not cresus ... but of course I would do this choice!
