Korg KP3+ Kaoss Pad Dynamic Effects/Sampler
Korg KP3+delivers a total of 150 effects - 22 more than the Korg KP3. In addition to the 108 effects carried over from the KP3, which include filters, spatial-type effects such as delay and reverb, a grain shifter that freezes tiny pieces of sound and repeats them, and a vocoder, there are 42 new or improved effects that represent today's dance music scene, including effects that were newly developed for the Kaoss Pad Quad, such as the Looper, Vinyl Break, and Ducking Compressor.
The KP3+ also incorporates a Looper, giving instant manipulate of sample loops on the fly. Looper effects can be controlled from the touchpad, including the ability to change the number of beats in the loop, so that the timing will change and automatically be quantized. There are also many new programs such as LoP.4 Freeze Looper, LoP.6 Shuttle Looper, and the LoP.7 Slice Looper that finely slices a phrase and loops the location that you choose.
The KP3+ features enhanced sampling functionality that lets you perform using multiple effects and samples. Each of the four sample banks can record a sample up to 13 seconds long (*1), and play it either as a one-shot or loop. The KP3+ also has functions such as a start point adjustment that lets you create a half-beat shift to create "doubled" effects, a new slice function that edits the structure of a loop sample to instantly create completely new phrases.
The KP3+ comes loaded with MIDI in/out and a USB port, making it easy to control external MIDI devices and you can even store Loop data and user settings on SD/SDHC cards. The KP3+ Editor is also available, which provides sample data librarian functionality as well as a MIDI assignment editor.
