A Freely Playable Synthesizer

The unique interface allows musical melodies and phrases to be played with ease by simply stroking, tapping, or rubbing the touchpad. Horizontal motions control the pitch; vertical motions control aspects of the tone, such as filter cutoff, feedback, or modulation depth. The intuitive design and flexibility of the touchpad allows users who are not keyboard players to perform easily. Users can create performances that are rich with tonal changes that could not be produced on a conventional keyboard instrument.

A total of 250 sound programs

The KAOSSILATOR PRO+ is packed with the cutting-edge synth sounds that you have come to expect from Korg. There are 50 additional programs in the KAOSSILATOR PRO+, bringing the total program count to 250! 62 of these sounds are drawn directly from current musical genres, including familiar and extremely useful leads, and synth basses, along with sound effects for DJ use. Of particular note are the 26 drum sounds that have been especially enhanced. Updated drum PCM includes sounds from the acclaimed Wavedrum percussion synth for even greater performance variety. With just a single KAOSSILATOR PRO+ you can perform hip-hop, chiptune, house, dubstep, new disco, electro, reggaeton, drum ‘n’ bass, plus international styles such as rock and bossa nova, or you can create your own genre!

Loop Recording function allows intuitive performance and track making

Loop Recording can be set for up to four measures (16 beats.) Performances on the KAOSSILATOR PRO+ can be recorded into any of the four onboard internal Loop Recorder Banks. By adding (overdubbing) additional sounds one at a time, you can create amazing looped phrases that range from minimal to fully orchestrated.
The four banks can be combined for virtually infinite performance possibilities. Each of the four loop banks can be muted or un-muted, its volume adjusted, and its loop length changed, making live performance easy for anyone.
The KAOSSILATOR PRO+ provides line inputs and a mic input to allow for the recording of external audio sources as well. This makes it easy to add a vocal, or audio from any external device to any loop phrase created on the KAOSSILATOR PRO+.

Unlimited performance possibilities

Musical Scale, Key, and Note Range help create musical performances

Even if you’ve never played a musical instrument before, the KAOSSILATOR PRO+’s Key and Scale features ensure that the notes being played will match the song being performed. Use the Key setting to specify the musical key or “root.” Choose any of 35 scales, ranging from popular scales such as chromatic, major pentatonic, and minor blues, as well as unusual scales such as Spanish, Ryukyu, and Raga. By using both the Key and Scale settings to match the song, you can play perfect solos without a single wrong note.

Note Range

The Note Range allows you to specify the range of playable pitches. You can set this to a narrow range to ensure that melodies will be played accurately as you intend, or to an extremely wide range to allow unexpectedly dynamic and unconventional phrases to emerge.

The Gate Arpeggiator function lets you control phrases with complete freedom

The built-in gate arpeggiator patterns can automatically generate phrases and beats by simply moving a finger across the touchpad. Use the slider to change the gate time and gate speed in real time for cool performances.

Pad LEDs ensure excellent visibility even in the dark

The pad LEDs light up along the path of your finger, letting you play without difficulty even on a dimly lit stage. The four loop recording LEDs have been changed to a more intuitively obvious illumination pattern than on the Kaossilator Pro, and now light red during recording and green during playback.
