A synthesizer that lets you perform freely with the touchpad
You can play melodies and phrases simply by stroking or tapping the touchpad with your fingertips. The horizontal axis controls pitch and the vertical axis controls subtle changes in tone. It's easy to perform even if you can't play keyboard, and you're also free to perform unusual phrases that would be impractical to play on a keyboard.
The sound engine provides 150 different sounds, including standard synth leads and synth bass, acoustic sounds such as piano and guitar, rhythm loops and single-note drum kits, meeting the needs for any style of dance music. Numerous useful functions for touchpad performance are also provided.
- Scale/key setting function lets you perform in a specified key without producing any wrong notes
- Note range function lets you change the performing range in units of an octave
- Gate arpeggiator function automatically generates precise phrases and beats
Loop recorder that lets you overdub phrases, and also undo/redo
There's a built-in loop recorder function that lets you layer your touchpad performances as many times as you like. By multi-track recording (overdubbing) the phrases you come up with, it's easy for anyone to create amazing tracks. The new undo/redo function means that you can confidently re-record as many times as you like if your performance wasn't what you intended.
A new workflow with Ableton Live lets you export a variety of data
Kaossilator 2S can export your multi-tracked loop data as WAV files in a variety of formats: multi-track format, in which each overdubbed track is exported separately, two-channel mix format, in which the overdubbed tracks are mixed, or Ableton Live set format. Ableton Live set format is a project file in which the loop data is already placed in each track of Live. You can take advantage of Live's powerful session and editing workflow to edit phrases you recorded on Kaossilator 2S, refining them, adding new parts to create your arrangement and then mixing your song. Since 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.
Kaossilator 2S provides other convenient functions for expanded utility and enjoyment.
- Master recorder function lets you record and save your performance on Kaossilator 2S as a WAV file
