Korg KO-1 Kaossilator

My brother gave me a Korg KO-1 Koassilator for Christmas. Here’s a quick MP3 tune (Disclaimer: it’s little more than a loop looped a lot; ie, it sucks) that I recorded while in Jackson International Airport awaiting my flight to Dallas where we grabbed our flight back to New York yesterday. I basically recorded two different variants of the same 8 beat loop and recorded each to GarageBand on my laptop and lined them up with no other editing. This is evident upon listening to it. In any case, this is a good example of what an untalented, untrained individual can do in about 15 minutes while sitting in an airport balancing a laptop on his knee.

This video (note: not me / by me) gives a much better look at what’s possible with this little fun music machine:

I also received a Korg DS-10 Synthesizer for the Nintendo DS from Curt and Marian which is also cool, but the learning curve on it is a bit more intense than on the Kaossilator, so I don’t have any good samples to present yet. Soon though…. DJ C.K. ;-)

    I cannot even describe how naturally fun it is to play with. I had my headphones in and bobbing my head to just tinkering with the different sounds for hours over the past week.

    Couldn't agree more about how fun it is to play with.

    I bought it while my wife was at the mall shopping so I just sat down in the middle of the mall and played with it while she shopped. I'm sure everyone thought I got a really weird iPod for Christmas.

    Haha, yeah. I got a couple of crazy looks from people at the airport.
