So, what is it with Korg then?

I've been wondering this for a few days. What is going on with Korg? First there's the Kaoss Pad series. Nice devices, lots of fun. Then a really little one, the mini KP, that's fair enough, and I expect it will have done well enough as they then made the Kaossilator, which is a far stranger device entirely. I bought one, and I really like it, but I'm not sure I entirely understand the rationale behind it.

Now, we have the Korg DS-10 on the way. I think it is a great idea, and I will definitely buy one, or more likely two, but I don't get it even more than the Kaossilator. What is the reasoning behind these developments, and more importantly where will it go next?

How about a Korg music based handheld? Something like a clamshell with a screen on one side a keyboard on the other? Maybe that's too much to ask as yet, but who knows what they'll come up with next?

Anyway, I'm off to connect my Kaossilator to my mini KP and have some fun!

Did you figure out how to connect it to your Mac/PC? I run a Mac with Logic 8. It seems a bit of a nuisance to set up. And of course, the Kaossilator's Instruction manual doesn't tell you how to do it...

I don't think that you can connect these directly to a mac or a pc. I don't think that's possible.
