If you like to make your own music and prefer to use synthesizers over analog musical instruments, you will probably be familiar with the name Korg. The company has announced that it has added a pair of the synthesizers to its Kaoss family. They look more like some sort of control panel from the Enterprise than musical instruments.

The new products include the KP3+ Dynamic Effect/Sampler and the Kaossilator Pro+ Dynamic Phase Synthesizer/Loop Recorder. Both devices promise a user-friendly X-Y touchpad interface that responds to the touch of a finger or a swipe.

The KP3+ supports touchpad-based control of over 150 sound effects including all of the original KP3 sound effects along with 22 new effect programs. The device also has a looper, a ducking compressor that puts emphasis on the backbeats, and a “Final Break” effect that simulates slowing down a turntable. Here’s just a small sample of what the KP3+ can do:

The device is also a MIDI controller with three controller signals transmitted from the touchpad and data from the slider.

The Kaossilator Pro+ has 250 sounds inspired by electronic music including 62 sounds inspired by cutting-edge genres. The effects include synth leads, enhanced drum sounds, and highly controllable drum patterns among other features. Korg shows off a bit of the Pro+ in action below:

Both products will be available this April with the KP3+ selling for $349.99(USD) and the Pro+ selling for $399.99.
