Korg Kaoss Pads 'admired by Brian Eno'
Brian Eno is just one of a number of high-profile figures from the world of music who admires the Korg Kaoss Pad.
With the new generation of the device – the Korg Kaoss Pad Quad – being launched this month, the Guardian took a look at the history of the equipment.
It noted Eno is a particular fan, thanks to its ability to allow users to play with the "physical character" of music.
He said: "It's immediately obvious what you do and it takes you into a completely different place, because when working with computers you normally don't use your muscles in that way."
The article added that Radiohead are well-known users of the Kaoss Pad, helping to bring the equipment to prominence by using it on their critically-acclaimed album Kid A.
Muse frontman Matt Bellamy is another to make use of the Korg equipment, having a Kaoss Pad built into his signature Manson guitars.
The Korg Kaoss Pad Quad has new functions and features, allowing users to control up to four effects simultaneously.
Any audio source can be processed through the device, from mp3 players to vocals via the mic input.
