KAOSS Pad to the Third! Korg's KAOSS Pad technology has been embraced by DJs, musicians and producers alike. No other interface is as intuitive, immediate or just plain fun to use. By simply touching, tapping or sliding your finger over the touchpad, the all-new Korg KP3 is a powerful effects sampler that allows you to control multiple effects parameters and manipulate samples in real time. On stage or in the studio, these gestures and moves can become truly powerful and expressive performance elements. More than a processor, the KP3 is a complete instrument allowing you to manage, recall, and play back samples; sample on the fly; and add dynamic processing to any audio signal or to the samples themselves. The KP3 is an effects sampler with 128 exciting effects, ranging from traditional effects such as delays, flangers and reverbs, to exciting new effects, like grain shifter, decimator, analog style filter with a tone-bending drive circuit and EQs controllable directly from the pad.
The new pad lighting system of the KP3 DJ effects sampler provides visual cues for the current program, held position, and more - it can even scroll a custom message! This interface offers a whole new level of operator interaction.
The KP3 effects sampler's Auto BPM circuit derives tempo information from a turntable or CD player and can sync effects to play in perfect timing, while providing MIDI clock to other devices.
A DJ Effects Sampler Beyond Effects
Instant drum grooves and RADIAS-inspired vocoder and synthesizer sounds can also be played on the X/Y pad, and, they can be synced to tempo just like the effects.
Sampling and effects are integrated completely, so you can sample through the effects, and even resample the output to create powerful, multi-element sounds. Plus, you can sample and resample the synths and drums within the unit KAOSSILATOR style, to create musical phrases on the fly!
The KP3 offers a Secure Digital (SD) port, for loading and saving your sample data.
An editor/librarian program is included with the KP3 effects sampler so you can build libraries of samples and edit them using your computer (via USB).
