Audiofanzine FR's review

By Audiofanzine FR, 06/11/2008
(Originally written by UraHellios/translated from Audiofanzine FR)

Important: 10-dB gain reduction!
So you must have a mixer with over 15 dB headroom if you want to have the possibility to set the track level lower.
The effects are very good compared to those of a Nuo 5, a Djm 400 and a Vestax Pmc 580 pro!
But you'll need some time to master all its features because each effect works on both axis, is affected by the global delay effect and can have several intensities.
It's not so easy in the beginning and the first minutes can be really disappointing.
Although the grid has limited resolution, certain effects use intermediate steps to produce flowing intensity sweeps.


Excellent user's manual and rather fast learning curve. The more you use it the more you like it.
It's only weakness is that the intensity can't be set directly with the knob.
Not very intuitive nor fast and you have to get used to it.


The only thing I can criticize is the 10 dB level reduction. All effects sound good and do what they are supposed to do. The sound is very good except in the headphone output.
The delay effects are really interesting because you can instantly switch between an eighth note and whole note, which is impossible with most mixers that require you to switch stepwise.


Consider the Mini KP as an excellent portable effects processor. You must be aware of its capabilities before you purchase it, and once you do you must spend some time with it to make the most of all its possibilities.
I recommend to plug it directly to a turntable.

Value for money ratio is 10/10 with the right mixer.

The effects are cool, I can not compare with other KAOSS pad because I did not: p Especially useful for the effects loop, which are resolved bpm ... 100 effects in all, many delays and filters, looper 20, 10 synths (great for drum) ...

Really small I not expect that ..

RCA connectors, battery powered ...


Simple and effective ... very brief but adequate manual ...


BIG SOUND! Good effects but not all good useful ....


Very good value for money, it beats in my opinion no other kp but it is not the point .. Very portable and efficient roughly ..

If I lose or break it, I buy a live ...

-What impact or effect types available?

+ All pairs of effects like Filter Filter + + Delay or Reverb.

-Are they editable? Via an editor for Mac / PC?


-What is the connection? (Audio / MIDI)

Cinch (RCA)


-The general configuration is simple?

Simpler you die.

-The manual is clear and sufficient? ...

Personally I have not in Japanese but need manual.


The effects-are they effective, responsive and realistic enough?

While the filters are not too bad. But some effects can you slay a dj set mix.
I advice to know its effects before doing anything.

-Which instruments do you use?

Numark HDMIX + Mini KP-10db output master so 22 + ALLEN & HEATH.

-Which ones do you prefer, you hate?

+ + Filter the mixture some
- The disto ...


-How long you use it?

3 days

-How would you rate the quality / price? With experience, you do again this choice? ...

Very affordable price. In the future I would look to Pioneer EFX 1000

full effect available
not editable on PC, but who cares
not rackable
digital sound
1 headphone mini jack, stereo RCA for input and output


easy to use
the manual is satisfactory.


the same effects on the KP3, nothing was wrong

triplet: kaossillator> minikp> KP3


I use it since 2008

The perfect companion kaossillator

Portable, full of sound effects that make the kaossillator less polite, this is the MOST

A big problem of noise on many mixing desk, this is the great LESS

I prefer largely the KP3 I had the same price patiquement used (but it was a fluke)

If you think buying the kaossillator, take the minikp also, they are inseparable (I even made a custom presentation case and a common supply)

Do not buy it if you intend to plug it into a mixing desk.
