Low Volume using Kaoss Pad Mini while DJing

Whenever I use my Kaoss Pad mini while Djing I have low volume output. I go from a Pioneer mixer Send into Kaoss Pad, then back into Return. The Kaoss Pad volume is at 100, yet when I send the audio through I lose around 40% volume.

Does anyone know how to fix this? Any comments appreciated!

    I thought the DC adapter would help as well, I have one and no discernable difference between it and batteries. Thought you might like to know, although definitely worth buying as it chews batteries!

I'm having the problem too...I'm thinking that maybe getting the DC adapter MAY fix it though as stated in the Manual: "...The output level of the mini-KP will be smaller than its input level. This is because the attenuator circuit is connected at the input section, considering that the mini-KP is used on battery power." so maybe the dc connector will increase output volume?

When I connect the mini kp to my mixer via s/r and I put the kp to snd it recives the signal but there is no sound coming out. . it works fine direct mode, but there is a big volume drop. Please help! :)


We can't guess what type mixer you might be using, HOWEVER check if the units are compatible by verifying that both either have or don't have balanced interconnections. If the pad is unbalanced and the mixer requires balanced lines, when you plug this in you will get a 6 Db drop (reduce to 1/4th power). It may not work at all when not on bypass. Check the specs in your user manual of the mixer, whatever model it may be.

I can't get any sound out of my Korg Mini Kaoss pad when running it into an amplifier. It works fine if I run it into my old cassette 4-track recorder, but I get nothing other wise. I've tried bunches of...


The Mini KP generates Stereo output and you would run it to either a stereo channel on your mixer before the amp or into two channels of your mixer board and PAN them to opposite sides.

If you try to connect this to a monaural amp, like a guitar amp) your cable will ground out the output of this box. The minimum would be to builld a special resistive mixer to combine the channels before they go to your amp HOWEVER you will lose much of the effects without having a stereo system.

I just got a kaoss pad and having need help connecting to a cdmp 6000 help please


You haven't got a send and return on your cdmp 6000. What I advice you to do is the following: connect the master out, the red/white cinch, to the input of the kaoss pad. Than connect the output of the kaoss pad to your speaker system or reciever. You can now control effects on the master single.

Hi. i cant get the sound to come through continuosly when using the kaoss pad, only when i put it on hold. is there a way round this?


You need to put the Mini Kaoss Pad in direct mode.
Hold down Memory A and press Memory B once, use the dial to select DIR instead of SND.
Hold down Memory A and press Memory B once again to return to normal play mode.

Connecting the kaoss pad 3 to my built in turn table mixer


Try connecting the main output to the input of the Kaoss and the output of the Kaoss to your amp. You will get more signal.

Korg mini kp only some effects working. Low sound output


I have the same Kaoss Pad mini and have exactly the same problem. I have asked for a solution as well!

The only way I have been able to use live is to turn up master on mixer to compensate, but this is incredibly hard to do if you're not always going through the KP as you have to adjust master volume each time up or down.

I haven't heard any volume problems with the full size Kaoss Pads, think it might just be a KP mini problem.

What do i need in a mixer? i want to connect my kaoss pad mini, and kaossilator, and obviously a couple of cdjs, and where do i connect them straight in the mixer or amp, im awaiting my purchase and just...


For dj use, industry standard would be something like a Pioneer DJM600 mixer. 4 channels w/ effects and a mic input. To use kaoss it's best to go into Send/Return input through the effects. By tapping on Send, all sound is sent out to the kaoss pad, and comes back into the mixer into the Return inputs. By doing this you can have the kaoss pad on sitting next to the mixer ready to apply effects all the time. Then connect the master outputs from mixer into your amp, or straight to powered speakers. Kaossilator is more of an instrument than effects unit, so plug in to channel 3 after your 2 cdjs in channel 1 and 2. You still have a spare channel left. I use 2 x 1200s and 2 x cdjs with kaoss pad through effects channel in this way. A 4 channel mixer is plenty.
