    I hope this will be useful if you are thinking about getting a Kaossilator but haven't had a chance to try one and see how it works.

    - Interface
    The synth is played by using the resistive touchpad. While not multi-touch it does figure out the average point between two held fingers based on how firmly they are pressed, rewarding some experimentation.
    The rotary encoder knob on the front is used to scroll though lists including the 100 preset synths, 50 gated arpeggios and 30 different musical scales. There are four buttons (including the one along the front edge not seen in the photo).
    Audio out is via two RCA style outputs at the top for output to audio equipment and the standard mini headphone jack (3.5 mm) on the front edge.

    - Synth
    There are 90 preset instruments to choose from including excellent bass sounds, some similarly good leads, a hit and miss selection of sound effects, chords, a questionable acoustic section with one nice piano and 10 drum sounds. For the most part the pad's y-axis modulates one predetermined effect for each instrument including something that sounds like a filter cutoff and a delay, alternatively for some instruments it brings different parts of the sound to the fore. The x-axis controls pitch and at first seems too imprecise to get any predictable melody from but experimenting with the different scales and ways of playing the pad lead to interesting and surprisingly good results. Some of the drum instruments have two different drum sound on the left and right instead of pitch and with the use of the gate arp are very useful in creating rhythms.

    you wont regret buying this.. its hella fun.

    Its really easy to make complex, layered loops for fun on the train, toilet, sofa in seconds

    for semi-professional production, its not at all bad.. no midi, but you can export the audio....

    you can make some great 4 bar loops using a hidden function..

    there are 100 in built sounds, each sound can me manipulated BIG time, making the koasillator extremely versatile in the noises that come out of it.

    Each noise can be affected in terms of pitch on the left right axis, and an effect (this varies depending on the instrument) on the up down axis.

    The key can be changed.. theres a three octave range, and the scale can also be adjusted to allow for complex musical creations

    Interestingly, there is a good gate apregiator with 48 settings.. this is really useful when working with the drum noises on there for perfect quantization, and even with the basses and acoustic noises, again to keep tight quantization.

    the lead noises are cool, and the bass really is heavy

    All told its great.

    If you have a range of musical epquipment, this will sit well alongside your existing kit.. ive already used it for several tunes.

    If youre an absolute beginner, its amazingly good fun and will inspire you to work with DAWs for sequencing purposes

    This brilliant device allows you to create fantastic soundscape with minimal technical ability. The touch screen control allows for extremely subtle manipulation of the sound, whilst it is fantasticaly simple to construct very complex loops into great rythmic surges. All this for a unbelievable low price buy one and blow your mind. My only caveat is connecting it to a computer to be able to record your production isn't very straight forward and there is no mention of procedures needed in the manual or Korgs website.

    This is one great peice of kit! I got mine 2 days ago and can't seem to put it down. The vast majority of the patches are really top stuff, and while there are some flaws (as detailed in so many other reviews there is little point me getting into it), they do not stop the fun at all. I would say I will mainly use it a toy, but I do plan on recording some loops to add over recordings I'm doing on a small 8 track, but again that's for fun, nothing serious.

    As far as I'm concerned the great features other than the touch screen are the gating ability, the fact you can tap the tempo button in time with a song to set the tempo, and the fact that you can set the key and scale and then just play about with them. I do think the touch pad should have been marked with a grid so that you could see precisely where the pitch/note changes. The build quality is fairly good, but a metal chasis would have been awesome, although it would bumpf the price up I guess.

    All in all I don't think you can go far wrong with one of these.

    This is a very nifty bit of kit, its kind of annoying that you cant erase each individual loop as you go along but you quickly get over it.
    within 20 minutes of opening the box i was mixing phat choons (im so urban!), i was worried all the talk of appregio gates and loops and chorus synths would be confusing but it takes no time at all to pick up.
    even though i have a wide knowledge of music i could confidently say that a n00b could pick this up and within minutes look like a master...and i can hook it up to garageband! sweeet!
    in short a vert versatile little box
