Realtime touchpad control
The intuitive design and amazing flexibility of the touchpad allows mini kaoss pad 2 users to easily control multiple effects and parameters by simply stroking, tapping, or rubbing the KAOSS touch pad with their finger. Using this remarkable design, you can easily control multiple effects in complex ways that would be difficult or even impossible on a conventional effects unit, or would require dedicated software plus a MIDI controller to achieve.
100 dynamic KAOSS effects
100 diverse, ready-to-play effect programs are packed into the mini kaoss pad 2, including many inherited from the KAOSS PAD KP3. These include standard effects such as Flanger, Filter, Delay, and Reverb, as well as new effects that first appeared on the KAOSS PAD QUAD: the powerful Looper, Vinyl Break, and Ducking Compressor; essential for the pumping, pulsing that drives today’s EDM tracks.
FX RELEASE provides natural effects and transitions
When you take your finger off the touchpad, the FX RELEASE automatically adds a delay effect so that the effect blends smoothly into your song or performance, and avoids abrupt effect dropouts. When using an effect (such as aggressive distortion) that has a completely different character than the unprocessed sound, enabling the FX RELEASE ensures that the effect will blend naturally into the tracks of your song.
Extreme performance control
Three program memories, Hold and Auto BPM functions
Excellent for DJ use and live performance, the mini kaoss pad 2 provides three Program Memories for instant recall of your favorite effects.
The Hold function freezes the effect parameters based on your finger’s current location on the touchpad for hands-free operation. Auto BPM detection syncs the applicable effects to the tempo of the song, so that everything continues to move in sync for a professional performance. These features provide the mini kaoss pad 2 with extreme DJ potential.
Need to really whoop it up on the dance floor? The mini kaoss pad 2 offers a built-in mic that can be used as a “shout” mic during your DJ performance to further energize the crowd. You can also apply the effects to the mic sound.
