The Kaossilator models have paved the way for
state-of-the-art instruments that can be used by anyone to instantly create
melodies and phrases, loop them and endlessly layer them. With a total of 250
sound programs (incl. drum presets), the new Kaossilator Pro+ offers even more
than its predecessor.
By hitting, tapping or stroking the touch pad with your
finger, you can effortlessly and spontaneously play entire melodies and
phrases. Horizontal movements control the tone pitch and vertical movements
control sound parameters such as cutoff, feedback or modulation intensity.
The integrated gate arpeggiator patterns automatically
create phrases and beats when you move your finger over the touch pad. Gate
time and speed can be changed in real time with the slider.
Every performance with the KAOSSILATOR PRO+ can be recorded
in one of the four internal loop recorder banks. With the ability to overdub
additional sounds, you can create both minimalistic and fully orchestrated loop
phrases with great authenticity.
Via the line and mic inputs featured on the KAOSSILATOR
PRO+, you can record external sources and add voices or analogue signals to
your loop phrases. External MIDI devices can be effortlessly controlled via the
MIDI IN/OUT jacks and USB port. Loop information and settings such as programs
can be saved onto SD/SDHC cards. A special KAOSSILATOR PRO+ Editor allows
management of sample data libraries and editing of MIDI assignments.
Even those who have never picked up an instrument before can
ensure that each note played is in key with the track thanks to the key and
scale function featured on the KAOSSILATOR PRO+. The key parameter specifies
the key or root note. Matching the key and scale parameter to the track allows
you to play perfect solos without hitting any wrong notes. Note range defines
the playable pitch range.
The pad LEDs follow the course your finger takes on the
touch pad so you can play precisely even on dark stages. Unlike the Kaossilator
Pro, the four loop recording LEDs are much more intuitive and easy-to-read as
they turn red during recording and green during playback.
Recording information can be exported from the KAOSSILATOR
PRO+ to the Kaossilator 2 and vice versa with the ability to use the same BPM
value and other settings.
