The intuitive design and amazing flexibility of the touchpad allows mini kaoss pad 2 users to easily control multiple effects and parameters by simply stroking, tapping, or rubbing the KAOSS touch pad with their finger. Using this remarkable design, you can easily control multiple effects in complex ways that would be difficult or even impossible on a conventional effects unit, or would require dedicated software plus a MIDI controller to achieve.

100 diverse, ready-to-play effect programs are packed into the mini kaoss pad 2, including many inherited from the KAOSS PAD KP3. These include standard effects such as Flanger, Filter, Delay, and Reverb, as well as new effects that first appeared on the KAOSS PAD QUAD: the powerful Looper, Vinyl Break, and Ducking Compressor; essential for the pumping, pulsing that drives today’s EDM tracks.
FX RELEASE provides natural effects and transitions

When you take your finger off the touchpad, the FX RELEASE automatically adds a delay effect so that the effect blends smoothly into your song or performance, and avoids abrupt effect dropouts. When using an effect (such as aggressive distortion) that has a completely different character than the unprocessed sound, enabling the FX RELEASE ensures that the effect will blend naturally into the tracks of your song.

Built-in Mic
Need to really whoop it up on the dance floor? The mini kaoss pad 2 offers a built-in mic that can be used as a “shout” mic during your DJ performance to further energize the crowd. You can also apply the effects to the mic sound.

The mini kaoss pad 2 provides an MP3 player that can play back audio data from a microSD card. You can save your favorite songs on a card, and apply real time effects to the song as it plays. Store sound effects or other audio material that you want to use during your DJ session, or save your favorite song data and then enjoy applying various effects to it. Unlike previous KAOSS PAD models, the self-contained mini KAOSS PAD 2 allows you to perform without requiring any additional equipment as input sources.
