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. ;-)
