Korg Kaossilator 2S Dynamic Phrase Synthesizer
The new Kaossilator 2S is a dynamic phrase synthesiser that has just had a massive upgrade thanks to its new and incredible ways to share your creations via Ableton Live, so you can seamlessly edit and create the perfect sound for your productions.
The palm-sized synthesiser, kaossilator 2, has now been intensified. Announcing the newly evolved kaossilator 2S ("S" stands for Sound on Sound), a great tool for serious music production.
Use the touchpad to perform intuitively, the loop recorder to keep overdubbing, then export your recorded phrases to Ableton Live and polish them into a song! With undo/redo functions and support for exporting as multi-track data or in Ableton Live format, the kaossilator 2S means that serendipitous phrases and sudden ideas can be seamlessly used in song production.
You can play melodies and phrases simply by stroking or tapping the touchpad with your fingertips. The horizontal axis controls pitch, and the vertical axis controls subtle changes in tone. It's easy to perform even if you can't play keyboard, and you're also free to perform unusual phrases that would be impractical to play on a keyboard.
The sound engine provides 150 different sounds, including standard synth leads and synth bass, acoustic sounds such as piano and guitar, rhythm loops, and single-note drum kits, meeting the needs for any style of dance music.
Numerous useful functions for touchpad performance are also provided -
- Scale/Key setting function lets you perform in a specified key without producing any wrong notes
- Note Range function lets you change the performing range in units of an octave
- Gate Arpeggiator function automatically generates precise phrases and beats
There's a built-in loop recorder function that lets you layer your touchpad performances as many times as you like. By multi-track recording (overdubbing) the phrases you come up with, it's easy for anyone to create amazing tracks.
The new Undo/Redo function means that you can confidently re-record as many times as you like if your performance wasn't what you intended.
The kaossilator 2S can export your multi-tracked loop data as WAV files in a variety of formats -
- Multi-track format, in which each overdubbed track is exported separately
- Two-channel mix format, in which the overdubbed tracks are mixed
- Ableton Live set format
Ableton Live set format is a project file in which the loop data is already placed in each track of Live. You can take advantage of Live's powerful session and editing workflow to edit phrases you recorded on the kaossilator 2S, refining them, adding new parts to create your arrangement, and then mixing your song. Since Ableton Live Lite is included, you'll be able to experience a new music production workflow that lets you seamlessly transition from mobile to desktop.
