Kaoss kp1 MIDI DJ Effects
Old 18th December 2010
Kaoss kp1 MIDI

Found a good deal on this, as they are going for next to nothing now, and had little problem getting it started. I knew what they could do AFA FX and glitch, but how about as a controller for older synths and other MIDI stuff?

KP is pretty limited as a controller, you would be able to control a two different CC parameters and that's about it. The touchpad is well programmed to interact with the KP's internal effects but I much prefer knobs and faders to control most CC type parameters as you tend to get more accuracy out of it. Basically in a pinch you could use it for a couple CCs but that's really not the point of a kaoss pad, so I wouldn't get one with the main goal of using it as a controller better off to get a knob box of some kind, those nano controller units from Korg are pretty cheap although they're USB so not really that useful if you don't have a PC in your rig... but if you do you can reroute that stuff out to midi ports using a program like Midiox.

That being said KP is awesome for sound mangling, I'd get one for that purpose alone. The KP3 is probably worth spending more on though with the built in sampler and everything.
