NAMM 2012: Korg Mini Kaoss Pad 2

Everyone knows just how much I love the Korg Kaoss Pad, and now it's gotten even better. The New pocket-sized Korg Mini Kaoss Pad 2 has the same cool effects functions and features with a lot more innovative quarks that will be a big hit with DJ's and other users. The Mini Kaoss Pad 2 still has the fingertip effects, can work on two-AA batteries, and can work with any mixer, instrument, or audio player that can use the 1/8-inch stereo input. The Mini Korg Kaoss Pad 2 also has a built-in MP3 player, mixer, and a cue point that can store and playback as much music as you want on the microSD card slot.
