A synthesizer that lets you perform freely with the touchpad

You can play melodies and phrases simply by stroking or tapping the touchpad with your fingertips. The horizontal axis controls pitch, and the vertical axis controls subtle changes in tone. It's easy to perform even if you can't play keyboard, and you're also free to perform unusual phrases that would be impractical to play on a keyboard. The sound engine provides 150 different sounds, including standard synth leads and synth bass, acoustic sounds such as piano and guitar, rhythm loops, and single-note drum kits, meeting the needs for any style of dance music. Numerous useful functions for touchpad performance are also provided.

  • Scale/Key setting function lets you perform in a specified key without producing any wrong notes
  • Note Range function lets you change the performing range in units of an octave
  • Gate Arpeggiator function automatically generates precise phrases and beats

Loop recorder that lets you overdub phrases, and also undo/redo

There's a built-in loop recorder function that lets you layer your touchpad performances as many times as you like. By multi-track recording (overdubbing) the phrases you come up with, it's easy for anyone to create amazing tracks. The new Undo/Redo function means that you can confidently re-record as many times as you like if your performance wasn't what you intended.

A new workflow with Ableton Live lets you export a variety of data

The kaossilator 2S can export your multi-tracked loop data as WAV files in a variety of formats.

  • Multi-track format, in which each overdubbed track is exported separately
  • Two-channel mix format, in which the overdubbed tracks are mixed
  • Ableton Live set format

Ableton Live set format is a project file in which the loop data is already placed in each track of Live. You can take advantage of Live's powerful session and editing workflow to edit phrases you recorded on the kaossilator 2S, refining them, adding new parts to create your arrangement, and then mixing your song. Since Ableton Live Lite is included, you'll be able to experience a new music production workflow that lets you seamlessly transition from mobile to desktop.

Other functions

The kaossilator 2S provides other convenient functions for expanded usefulness and enjoyment.

  • Master Recorder function lets you record and save your performance on the kaossilator 2S as a WAV file
  • Internal mic and mic input jack let you record external audio input sources such as vocals or other instruments
  • Battery operation and built-in speaker let you play anytime and anywhere

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
