R.I.P. Adam's KP Mod!

Well. In its final moments, i'm sure the program 30 tape delay almost said to me "oww", just before my toe, or possibly most my foot, shattered the KP's integral layers of the XY Pad, essentially rendering this a little bit crazier than a korg 505, offering the limited hold presets i'd saved for each setting, and makes a nice shit pre-amp.


SO.
THE KP XY CONTROLLER CANNOT BE FOOT OPERATED, NOT EVEN YOUR TOE. TRUST ME. IT REALLY CANT!

Signin' out!
Much love fellow crazy dudes

hi !

maybe this can be interesting for someone (sorry my bad english ...)

one year ago I broke my kaosspad I cleaning the touchpad with alcool, so there was no way to use it because it was stuck on value 11

I finally fixed it yesterday with 2 100 ohm pots which replies the X/Y value

So it's possible to apply a breakout cable connected i.e. to a pedal or a sort of ...

that's all folks !

I can send you the schematics in the next days

Hey,

Like what you've done mate; just curious about a few things:

1) Just wanting to know about the exact electronics used, besides the parts of the Pad itself.

2) How exactly did you use the video case for the Pad? was it external? internal?

and
3) Does it give all the effects that you could use to replicate Muse songs? If not, do you know where I could get them from? (Excluding the obvious pedals that he has in his kit)

Hi there

I'm working on my own version of this mod but for some reason when I power on my KP1 the lights come on but the digital display doesnt do anything and I can't get any more out of it. Was wondering if you knew why this was or think it may be unfixable.

Hey Adam,

Sorry to hear about the mod. I'm taking your lead, and starting my own KAOSS Pad mod, probably with lots of mistakes along the way. Check out www.hellecaster.com for my current build. Cheers!
