Hungary Croatia: "A guy from the music store showed me the photo and technical details for the new Kaoss Pad which is out "end of september/october". There will be 4 pads [sample pads at the bottom, not four x-y pads], each with up to 13 seconds sampling, a usb port and SD slot for wav/aiff loading/saving. There's also new effects and presets, and the pad can display your programmed text messages. He say that the price will be around €400." Obviously I have no idea if it's true, but Kaoss Pads are cool - i.e Radiohead's 'Everything in its right place', and they're Brian Eno's favourite effects units.
