The Korg Kaoss Pad is back in the form of the Kaoss Quad, and it's been given a makeover. No more presets, the effects are split up into a series of buttons on the top panel; a quadrant of buttons in fact (see what they did there?).

The absence of MIDI and USB seems like a shrewd measure, whereas the replacement of phono ins and outs to 1/4 inch jacks is just very telling..

As the Microsampler relieves the Kaoss Pad of sampling duties, the Kaoss Pad is free to concentrate on offering control and precision - no complains there. The un-editable presets of previous generations were never a problem but just listen to this guy's performance - couldn't've done that on a single KP3!

I heard that the new Kaoss Pad was going to have TWO X-Y pads side by side? Clearly a wishful rumour. However now I see this thing in action, I understand such an arrangement would be redundant.

Korg are just on fire right now!* They're just pulling out hit after hit. I can't wait to see what original innovations they bring next NAMM.

* excluding the downright creepy Micropiano
