one hundred sonority, included a dozen beat.
not editable
not rackable
its numerical
headphone mini jack, stereo RCA


Use simplisimo
the manual is reduced, but complete (but must search the net tricks that add fun to the machine.


sounds are great, but forget the realism.

Triplet: kaossillator> minikp> KP3


since 2008

The portability and the ability to play anywhere is nice, this is the most

Shame it is not possible to register (no card reader, no internal memory, the less great

I will buy a Kaossilator Pro or the new kaossillator (with card reader!)

A Little Touch Synth, But Solid: 10/10.

By Accordeons6000, 15/04/2012
I plugged into the mixer, and worked on with Cubase LE 4 for my Music & Sound Card with my Alesis io / 2.


Easy configuration, same for children.
The manual & simple enough ...
Great effects: 10/10.


The effect génials, I use all instruments with Koassiolator Korg, shame, that we knew not to put on a USB Koassilator or on a memory card, as Koassilator Pro.


I use 3 Years ais, ais & then I give my pillow Arnaud.J love it all, make sound Analog Drums and Techno ... Ect
I have not essaiyé else, it was my first little Tactile Synth: 10/10.
Solid Quality: Price: 185 Euro, Frb: Frb 7600.
I do again my choice for a Korg Koassilator with 2 Memory Card.

Under the plastic, the bomb!

I owned and I own the Kaossilator moèle the "Pro": the sounds are identical, the first in a cent less than the second, no noon, no adjustable output, a single loop without possibility of backup. But for the traveling and love electro, its portability makes it a must! It creates what the keyboard or guitar can not: phrases, rhythms, moods, which we have no idea.


Simpler, you die. No need to be misicos for it to do.


Its electro Korg: ALL is interesting and potentially inspiring one time or another.


If I sold it, it's because it was duplicated with the Kaossilator Pro. And then, there will be the Kaossilator II ... averc possibility of internal audio processing, backup to memory card and two simultaneous loops. So ...

Little yellow pocket synth tying

By francky.rds, 01/02/2012
Touch PAD usually 2 octaves (sometimes + according to the selected sound)
100 SONS PATCHES non-editable including:
2-axis control on touch pad: left / right = notes of the scale and bottom-up = cutoff, reso, distorts ... (depending on the sound)
ARPEGGIATOR: 50 pre-programmed patterns: loops that required to provide.
3.5 1 headphone jack with volume control
No possibility MIDI or PC, no backup compositions either, once off, you lose everything.
In no input provided.
Requires 4 LR6 (> 5 hours of battery life for the 2700 NiMH rechargeable) or optional AC adapter.


The KAOSS1 is easy to use and fairly intuitive even if the interface is improved.
By the central control knob is convenient, it allows quick access to patches on the grounds of pre-recorded Arpeggiator and virtually all settings of the beast. (Tempo, tone ... etc ...)
The pad is very sensitive and responds very well. But playing a melody accurately is not easy.
The instrument is not for a complex and precise but clearly rhythmic loops of 8 measurement time, we must know.
Some have built a grid drawn in marker on a transparent plastic to restore a semblance of a keyboard. Not convincing!
Function "fixed" saves recorded walks right from the first and the same for the following. If an error occurs, you can always retrace his steps. (Watch live is not great because the "fixed" stops play)
In general, I always set the first loop (often a rhythm pattern ARP) before proceeding. In the middle of the song without interruption this time, I 'erases all back to my original saved and only reason I'm leaving ... on other layers. that nickel!
Tip: You can go from 8 to 16 times for loops by losing the "fixed" because of the memory usage. (Manip to discover on the net)


The sounds are quite interesting and well done overall but as always there is good and less good
(20% of the patches does not serve me I think) The style is 100% electro fishing with a good general.
There are excellent Lead (L15, L07, L09, L11 ...), the acoustic sounds are great as well and sometimes surprising because realistic enough for this little box (sax, trumpet, piano, flute ...)
I find the bass a little too "acid" but there are 2 or 3 more soft anyway. The drums and drum patterns are nickels and modulation of the pad changes a lot the architecture of the rhythm. The effects are quite spectacular (S60, S70, S76 and many more ...)
Finally, we would like a little more sound (I think Kaoss2 is about to go out offers 150 instead of 100 is better)
Overall, the instrument is geared for solo trips, I see less in a live band, for example, typed too! Too cool!


Bought used € 90 one month ago, the Kaossilator not leave me. Its main asset is its portability. Well protected in a pocket of népronème touch pad, it follows me everywhere. For loops solo at the office between noon and two, headphones on, it's best! And what a catch!
The p 'tit KORG makes you a good time but be careful, it is bad but not the best (the youtube demos attest)
Among the good:

However, it does not really need to be a musician for fun ... Everything goes ...! almost ... and then modulate the sounds at your fingertips on this little box is really great.

1 - First of all grounds ARPEGGIATOR CHORD mode (there are 50 different reasons for recall) ...
2 - a rhythmic and well put ...
3 - A good bass playing over there ...
4 - A small arrangement with a good way picatta Lead

... And let's go for improvisation to the end of the night ... Slide! Tap! Swizz! (Shit that means nothing!) All sounds a review! A trance ... endless!

I do not regret this purchase and will continue to discover and exploit the little yellow KORG. I hope not to get tired too fast but I think that if I separated, it will be for the new opportunities Kaoss2 larger still ... (2loops simultaneous Mic, 150 patches and sound recordings on SD Card )
