Does more than advertised

17.06.2015
There are basically three somewhat different ways to use KP3+ in audio environment. First - and probably most advertised - is the effects processor, which includes well over 100 effects divided in subcategories.

In my opinion this DJ effects box use may already be more past than present a way to use KP3+, since many two-deck DJ systems can be expanded to include integrated effects. Also the decline of dubstep has diminished the need for outrageous fx department for DJs, it is soundwise a much more suddle a scene now with vintage vinyl and stuff.

If you do want to use KP3+ as external effects processor on master tracks however, make sure beforehand that you have a suitable mixer with stereo send/return for auxiliary sound. The KP3+ USB port does transmit MIDI data, but you need separate routing for actual audio signal.

The second way to use KP3+ is an external MIDI controller. However if you already own for example an iPad, there are apps that can transform your tablet into a better MIDI controller with a couple of euros. Therefore buying KP3+ for MIDI controller use only would be somewhat an overkill.

It is the third way of use KP3+ is in my opinion at its best: sampler/looper and audio designer. If you feed KP3+ with vocal samples (samples or by mic) or in general any other audio rather than overcompressed beats, a whole new world opens regarding sound sculpting. This way of using KP3+ significantly increases its fun factor: getting something you weren't expecting is easy with KP3+. There are probably samplers with more features in the market - after all the first KP3 has been available for a decade soon - but as the product name hints, creating inpredictable disorder is a forté for KP3+.

To be honest, this disorder is also a part of the installation process. It took me quite a while to get KP3+ recognised by my workstation. So far the solution has been to launch the driver configure application each time before the USB connection with KP3+ Editor software is established. Also, as mentioned, KP3+ is not a plug'n play USB device so there was also a lengthy episode figuring out how to get stereo audio with effects on DAW to be recorded. Once this was accomplished however, I could not but to admire the sound quality that can be achieved with KP3+.

There are couple of extra features KP3+ could use, mostly on software side. For example on iKaossilator app there is an option for setting a scale/key so that melodic notes played on it are never the 'wrong' ones. This feature is not included in the current KP3+ software, but hardware-wise nothing prevents this from being added later.

The plugs and connectors in KP3+ are quality work, but the plastic knobs don't really give too professional an impression when used. I do not doubt their durability, it is more a feel thing. The touchpad itself feels good when used and is accurate. Therefore the option for playing more controlled melodies would be a great add.

To be short, in my opinion KP3+ is not the first option if you need MIDI controller or DJ effects processor. If you however want a versatile sampler/looper tool to be used in sound desigining and remixing, you might want one. I have knowingly downplayed the fact that once I got into this part of KP3+ features, time just vanished and I could have continued forever trying different things. It was fun, wildly fun. There are not too many audio products around that make you feel that way. Just make sure that you are set mixer-wise and reserve an hour or three for the setup phase. After that there are basically no limits.

Kaoss Pad 3+

Simon580, 25.12.2014
What a wonderful piece of live kit, brilliant spot effects that allow you to create big spontaneous moments with your tunes, great for DJing as well. It would be great if it had jack ins and outs and also a mono mode but i very happy to have it in my arsenal. Highly recommended.
