Mini Magic

Picked up a Kaoss Pad Mini recently and am very impressed. Obviously it's way better than the ancient Kaoss 1 we've been using for the last few years, but Im surprised at how much value for money this thing is. For just 122 euro (-VAT), you get 100 effects including some great delays, basic sampling and looping facilities and a bunch of pre made siren and sine wave sounds. A big improvment over the first one is the 'send' mode, where the signal is muted unless the pad is being touched - perfect for DJng and my main complaint about the first one. It really is tiny too. My one gripe is that you have to buy the power supply seperately. Batteries are fine, but not for long time use or gigging - they always run out at the wrong moment...
