Why Kaosillator is still fantastic

I've just spent some time playing with this device again, and I have to say, I still think it is excellent. Sure, it has plenty of limitations. You can only record 8 steps, you can't erase a single layer once it has been recorded, and there are no ways of altering the internal sounds.

However, what is great about the Kaosillator is that it is so immediate. You can pick it up and make a sound with it straight away. It is also very expressive in the right hands, and can be a very satisfying instrument to play.

Every time I pick it up I remember these things and try and think of ways to use it with other devices, but in some ways that defeats the object. The Kaosillator is fun. Not just a toy, but still fun, and it should be enjoyed.

by booting in what people on youtube calle diagnostic (hold tap and rec while powering up, release, let it boot and choose the lenght(goes up to 16, no overdubs) you can get 4 bars with no overdub track (as all memory is allocated to 1 track)
