Korg's KAOSS PAD Series products have become some of the must-have effect units on in every musician's rig - especially on the DJ scene. The original mini KAOSS PAD has earned enormous popularity for packing full-fledged effects into its compact body. Now, welcome the mini kaoss pad 2!
In addition to inheriting powerful effect programs from the KAOSS PAD KP3 and the KAOSS PAD QUAD, it provides an MP3 player with adjustable pitch, making the mini kaoss pad 2 unit ideal for creating DJ-Style performances. Use it as a DJ playback device, or use it to process the entire output of your DJ rig with Korg's famous KAOSS effects. Instrumentalists, guitarists, sound designers and even just music fans will enjoy using the mini kaoss pad 2.The Organic Electroluminescent (OEL) display provides superb visibility. Add to that a touch slider for ease of use, microSD card data saving, plus a built-in speaker and mic. All of these features reflect the enhancements incorporated into the sleek and exciting mini kaoss pad 2.
Realtime touchpad control
The intuitive design and amazing flexibility of the touchpad allows mini kaoss pad 2 users to easily control multiple effects and parameters by simply stroking, tapping, or rubbing the KAOSS touch pad with their finger. Using this remarkable design, you can easily control multiple effects in complex ways that would be difficult or even impossible on a conventional effects unit, or would require dedicated software plus a MIDI controller to achieve.
100 dynamic KAOSS effects
100 diverse, ready-to-play effect programs are packed into the mini kaoss pad 2, including many inherited from the KAOSS PAD KP3. These include standard effects such as Flanger, Filter, Delay, and Reverb, as well as new effects that first appeared on the KAOSS PAD QUAD: the powerful Looper, Vinyl Break, and Ducking Compressor; essential for the pumping, pulsing that drives today's EDM tracks.
FX RELEASE provides natural effects and transitions
When you take your finger off the touchpad, the FX RELEASE automatically adds a delay effect so that the effect blends smoothly into your song or performance, and avoids abrupt effect dropouts. When using an effect (such as aggressive distortion) that has a completely different character than the unprocessed sound, enabling the FX RELEASE ensures that the effect will blend naturally into the tracks of your song.
Three program memories, Hold and Auto BPM functions
Excellent for DJ use and live performance, the mini kaoss pad 2 provides three Program Memories for instant recall of your favorite effects.
The Hold function freezes the effect parameters based on your finger's current location on the touchpad for hands-free operation. Auto BPM detection syncs the applicable effects to the tempo of the song, so that everything continues to move in sync for a professional performance. These features provide the mini kaoss pad 2 with extreme DJ potential.
Need to really whoop it up on the dance floor? The mini kaoss pad 2 offers a built-in mic that can be used as a "shout" mic during your DJ performance to further energize the crowd. You can also apply the effects to the mic sound.

Comments about Korg Mini KAOSS PAD 2 Dynamic Effect Processor:
After reading the directions and watching various videos, it did not say the type of inputs required to make it work. After a week of trying to figure out why it wouldn't work, I was going to return it. However, one of the Guitar Center audio guys was able to show me what to do after some experiments. The one difference: a stereo to mono adaptor! I am glad to say I am still learning at this point in my music career, but really?? Now that I can actually use it, I am just starting with the effects. I can't wait to get to the other options.
