The Kaossilator 2 is an extremely fun device to play with and is something you can do more than sketch with if you are careful and don't over loop.
I'm not sure why Korg changed up a great thing.
The K2S does not have the same double pad loop trigger that the K2 has. This means that you are limited to a single 8 bar measure.
The K2 allowed you to build 2 banks of loops and each allowed up to 8 bars. You could play with loops at different bar measures which might not sound like much but is very much missed in the K2S.
The K2 has a built in memory chip which allows you to record directly to the unit. The K2S requires an external card which at the cost of flash technology seems like a stupid omission. Build it with low on board storage but at least some.
The sound set is the same but the staging and presence is superior in the K2S.
The build quality is a little svelter with a rubberized grip which makes it handy to hold.
The big HUGE ability to undo a loop.
Ableton : and that merits a whole other discussion.
The internal mic on both units seems to be about the same in near field quality.
Korg has limited what was a very fun little device for field recording and tried to make it a studio device.
The problem is this synth begs to be out and about in the world with inspiration flying and the mic at hand. You can't bank 2 loops so that limits you so very much in the creative process. Being able to strip away a percussion layer and add a rhythm layer, or noise layer and add it back with the pads is so intuitive.
The K2S has the power to finalize your loops and dump them to Ableton Lite which is much more powerful in terms of composition. You can use it like a real recording instrument to much greater effect. Ableton comes at a price tag as well and so the benefit is you get both the hardware and software.
In recap : I'm happy to have both. I wish I could Frankenstein them together and have one great field recording monster. Korg keeps making awesome products so I'll hold out for their 7" synth tablet ;) hint hint Korg (get on that with MIDI)...
-as for the KP2 (effect processor, red back cover) the device sould have better codecs (audio compatibility very limited), playlist tools, lack onboard memory (sd req. max 16g) and no rech. internal battery (AA's die fast on the road !), internal speaker is poor therefore useless (outreagous considering the good portable speakers available out there (cloapsable membrane maybe?)...),
no bluethoot connectivity yet...
North america should expect 1 month for reg. chiping from japan.
stick with your old K if you have one, KORG may hopefully fix all this on next gen..
