A great companion for practicing guitar, bass, acoustic guitar, winds, or any type of instrument! The KR mini - an easy, simple and compact rhythm machine with a built-in speaker and optional battery power for play-anywhere convenience!
Too many of today's rhythm machines are too complex to use. Many musicians wish that they could enjoy casually performing while being backed up by real rhythm patterns rather than just a metronome. Korg has responded to these wishes with the KR Mini rhythm machine. It features a simple design that eliminates all complex functions, looks that overflow with nostalgia and analog-like controls. Playing a rhythm pattern is easy and intuitive; just press or strike the pads and turn the knobs. Although operation is simple, there's no compromise with the sound. A total of 60 diverse rhythm patterns are ready to accompany you. Easy, simple and compact, the KR mini can play its role anywhere; it's the rhythm machine that many musicians have been waiting for.
• Easy and simple design; just select a rhythm pattern and press the play button • Chain function lets you arrange your favorite rhythm patterns and fill-ins to create complete songs • Optional foot switch lets you control fill-in/start/stop hands-free • Tap the 16 pads for finger drumming or recording your own performances • Built-in speaker with 2W output helps you jam anywhere without the need for an additional monitor • Headphone/speaker jack for quite practice or connection to an external monitoring system • Two-way power; use the AC adaptor or batteries (AA alkaline batteries x 3)
Just use the knob to select the musical style you want and press a button to start playing a rhythm! Since the KR mini is light-weight, can operate on batteries and has a built-in speaker, you can use it to provide a backing rhythm pattern wherever you are. It covers a wide range of genres, including 8-beat, 16-beat, rock and pop, with six patterns for each genre. Plus there are eight song patterns containing drum parts that are several measures in length. It's a must-have item that will be perfect not only for guitarists and bassists but also for wind/orchestra players and pianists.
Rhythm Patterns (6 patterns for each genre *Not including songs): 8Beat, 16Beat, Rock, Metal, Pop, R & B, Jazz, Latin, Dance, User, Songs/Chain End
The KR mini features a Chain function that lets you easily create original rhythm songs by connecting preset rhythm patterns. It's also easy to create more complex rhythm songs; you can include fill-ins and specify the loop end location as well as the number of playback repetitions.
The 16 pads are assigned to play drum sounds such as bass drum, hi-hat and cymbals. You can use these pads to enjoy finger drumming. The pads are velocity sensitive, so the force used to strike a pad will be reflected by the sound; letting you create even more realistic drum phrases.
Although finger drumming has typically been done using a PC-based system with samplers and MIDI controllers, the compact KR mini, with its built-in speaker and battery-powered operation means that now you can enjoy performing on the street, outdoors, or anywhere you may be inspired. The KR mini is a necessity for any finger drummer.
An optional pedal switch lets you use your foot to start/stop the rhythm or to control fill-ins. You'll be able to smoothly control the KR mini while continuously playing your instrument. The KR mini also has a headphone/speaker output, so you can connect it to your PA system and play drum patterns from an external speaker. Use it with a guitar amp to create a simple setup for live performance.
