A couple of knobs would've been way great instead of sliders. Oh well. The controllers are starting to show up. An MPD26 and some keyboard for the iPhone from Akai as well.
Oh man, I have an APC40 and I can't imagine not having the entire right hand side. All the controls are on it...

Korg is coming out with a :roll: digital piano and a KP3-size Kaossilator.

The big Kaosscilator looks rad, midi sync and more customisable options so you can use it less as a preset box and actually do original stuff with it.

Hmm. I'm very happy that Korg continue to develop the Kaossilator, but it seems there's no real editing possible for the patches. And that sort of bums me out.

Another thing: I love the little battery powered Kaossilator. In a big format it's a little less tempting. I think I'd rather pick up the KP3, or better yet, the MiniKP.
For the next version of the Kaossilator Pro I recommend Korg reintroduce the small format of the original, supply a patch editor for real original sounds, and add a usb port. That's all I ask ;)

It said something about being able to pick the key and the scale, that's better than what you can do with the Kaoss Pad. I'm still a bit annoyed you can't really edit the effects in the KP3 with the software editor, but I guess I was kind of hoping for a fully editable multieffects unit with a touch pad, maybe I'm not exactly the target demographic for this... Maybe I should get a Fireworx and use the KP3 as a midi controller for it. :D

Actually, the current spec is quite a bit more than the original plans.( John kept adding things over the last 2 years) At one point I was worried about feature creep,but as it stands now Solaris will be here in a few months.

oo

Good move! The KORG Mini-KP is the bomb . . . incredibly musically useful and well constructed, too.

ask and ye shall receive... here are a couple of photos of a Moog guitar demonstration at their booth at NAMM 2010.

NAMM 2010 starts in half an hour but Moog was doing a special private presentation last night.

FYI, the Moog guitar was connected up to an Axon interface (out of sight behind the demonstrator).
