NAMM 2011: Korg Announce New Kaoss Quad Pad
Renowned electronic musical instruments manufacturer Korg have announced details of a new dynamic effects processor the Kaoss quad pad at this year NAMM.
Twelve years ago, the first-generation Kaoss Pad revolutionized the DJ/music scene with touchpad-based effect control.
Since then, X-Y touchpad is evident in many Korg products - Kaoss Pad effects, the Kaossilator Series, our padKONTROL and nanoPAD controllers, even the exclusive M3 TouchView display.
To this we add the Kaoss Pad Quad, with new effects, functions, and features that truly stand out from the crowd.
New Kaoss quad pad allows you to create your own combination of Kaoss effects, and simultaneously control up to four effects using a single fingertip with the new Kaoss Pad Quad; it's Kaoss control evolved to a whole new level.
This new Kaoss Pad lets you use up to four effects simultaneously, these effects can be sync'ed to the beat of your music, allowing you to transform songs in realtime.
Any audio source can be processed from MP3 players, a mixing board, an instrument, even vocals via the mic input.
The expressive performance potential that arises from the Kaoss Pad Quad leaves other effect units in the dust, and rapidly approaches the realm of an "instrument".
The brilliant and colorful LED touchpad illumination adds a strong sense of individuality, further enhancing the Kaoss Pad Quad's unique character.
Intense user and performers can engage in highly technical performances, whereas casual users can enjoy DJ-like fun.
The interest and depth emanating from the new Kaoss Pad Quad is sure to touch every listener.Posted on 13 Jan 2011 18:00 to category : Instruments News
