Korg has finally brought out the update to its Mini Kaoss Pad range. The Mini-KP2S features a sampler (that's what the S stands for) and now feels like a proper useful bit of kit.
"Now you have a hand-held vocoder at your disposal"
Replacing the MP3 playback, the sampler allows you to record a signal via either the line-in or built-in mic, so now you have a hand-held vocoder at your disposal.
Everything else is the same as the Mini-KP2: number of FX, collection of pre-loaded loops, storage, etc. All except the finish, which is now a sexy matte black polycarbonate.
