level of difficulty:
Following on from yesterday's post about the Alesis AirFX guitar, I thought someone must have put a Korg Kaos Pad into a guitar, and it turns out some guy called Phil has already done it. The Kaos Pad is a multi-effects unit (designed for electronic musicians and DJs) with a square touch sensitive pad. As you move your finger around the pad you control the powerful effects processor, moving left or right up or down or in an arc affects different aspects of the effect.
Not only has Phil taken the trouble to fit the Kaos Pad into his Epiphone Les Paul, but he has also produced a guide how to do it, and made some demonstration videos. Phil used a second hand Kaoss Pad 2 that cost $250 Candian dollars.
