Kaossilator info now also on Korg UK

Post by Hugo76 » Fri Sep 28, 2007 2:39 pm

I noticed that korg.co.uk now also has info on the new Kaossilator. It is, however, not featured on the front page, but is listed under Dance/dj tools.
Check it out here:
http://www.korg.co.uk/products/dance_dj ... ilator.asp

(btw: where did the original kaossilator thread go?)

Gah!!! I WANT!!!
It's small. It's battery operated. It's cheap. It's yellow. It's perfect.
Sometimes i love how Korg releases completely bizarre products.

Now all i need to know is the launch date :(

Yeah, it seems pretty cool. allright ;)
I still curious about effects and polyphony. Whatever the specs, at that price it's awesome anyway.

Is this how korg normally releases their c**p? I've yet to see an actual image of one. They are all rendurered images, exact same angles as the miniKP rendurings. It has me skeptical, and april 1st isn't for a long ways away.

Sorry but more of the same kind of faky looking pictures. When you get one take a picture of it say sitting next to your hand or miniKP on a table or something. Otherwise these still look CGIed to me.

So even though it is on the Korg UK site...you think it is a joke? I'm sorry, but Korg just isn't that cool.

it's cheap, it's fun looking, and it's a new thing to most people. now all they need to do is to make a drummachine that looks exactly the same, (maybe green?, or blue?) and even the ER/EA/ES-setup looks large as a mini-setup :)

I'll try to get hand of the Kaossilator & MiniKP when I can afford it :)
