The Korg padKONTROL adds another dimension beyond traditional keyboard control for incredibly expressive and versatile pad control. The most unique feature of the padKONTROL is the X-Y Section. You are able to run your finger up and down while playing a sound, and make that sound repeat super fast or slow, super loud or quiet, or adjust it to be at a set tempo and your sound will go with the tempo you set it at. You can set individual pads to do this, each of the 16 pads can be individually assigned a note number and MIDI channel, and you can choose from eight different dynamic curves as well as either MIDI or USB output for each drum pad. With the Pad Kontrol, Korg have done some out of the beatbox thinking and come up with a device with lots of creative potential.
