The Korg kaossilator 2S Dynamic Phrase Synthesizer is a palm-sized synthesizer that's a very powerful tool for serious music production. It allows you to create full songs built up of overdubs and loops whilst on the move. You can export all your recordings into Ableton Live to polish and master what the songs you've created.
The main source of control comes from the touchpad. With it you can play melodies and phrases by simply stroking or touching the pad. The horizontal axis controls pitch, whilst the vertical controls subtle changes in tone. It's very simple to use, and even if you have no musical knowledge, you can perform unusual phrases that would be impractical to play on a keyboard. With 150 different sounds ranging from synth leads and synth bass to acoustic sounds such as piano and guitar, you can create a huge range of music.
A built in loop recorder lets you overdub phrases that you have created on the touchpad. And you can do this as many times as you like. Overdubbing the phrases you come up with, it's easy to create some pretty amazing tracks. A undo/redo function means that you can confidently re-record as many times as you like if your performance wasn't what you intended.
The kaossilator 2S allows you to export you multi-tracked loop into Ableton Live as a WAV file. You can take advantage of Live's powerful session editing workflow to edit what you've recorded, then edit, mix and master. Ableton Live Lite is included, you'll be able to experience a new music production workflow that lets you seamlessly transition from mobile to desktop.
