Der Kaossilator wird erwachsen


Seitdem ich den kleinen Kaossilator (Test hier) in den Händen hatte, habe ich von einer grossen Version geträumt und hier ist sie: der Kaossilator Pro. Die Features lesen sich alle interessant, ein Verkaufsdatum gibt es noch nicht und der Preis liegt mit 399 Dollar genauso hoch wie der des Kaoss Pad 3, was bei uns dann in etwa 320 Euro werden dürften. Die Features:

KAOSS X-Y touchpad offers intuitive, realtime control

200 sounds covering modern synth sounds such as lead and bass, and diverse acoustic sounds from piano to trumpet and beyond

PCM samples provide dramatic drum kits and ready to rock percussion patterns

Vocoder programs deliver scintillating vocal effects

Access up to eight of your favorite sounds instantly using the assignable Program Memory buttons

Loop Recording can layer both internal Program sounds and external audio overdubs

Four Loop Record Banks each allow up to four measures of loop recording, with easy muting that allows expressive realtime layering and DJ-Style re-mixing – ideal for live performance.

Gate Arpeggiator repeatedly triggers sounds in sync with the tempo. The slider controls either the gate time or gate speed.

Choose a key and select one of 31 musical scales to easily create musical phrases. Limit the X-Y pad’s note range for even more control

Loop data, user settings and Program Memories can be stored on SD card

Dedicated software lets you manage loop data, MIDI assignments, and user settings from your computer

Performs double-duty as a MIDI controller for external equipment or software applications

    I don’t get it, why they didn’t integrate a melodic step sequencer like the one novations launchpad has now after the Max-for-Live update.
    Actually the Kaossilator Pro has all the requirements for it (steps in the display -> horizontal AND vertical)!! And then combined with midi it would be a mind-blowing tool.
    Would like to have a melodic step sequencer in the hardware, which is as well usable for midi-triggering.
    What do you think about this idea?
