If you’ve used a Korg Kaossilator, you may have noticed the device’s 2-bar loop length can wear out a melodies welcome quite quickly. David Battino shares info on a simple hack which extends that length to a relatively luxurious 4 bars –

If you power up the Kaossilator while holding down the Tap and Loop Rec buttons, the loop memory doubles from two bars to four. That may not sound like much, but it gives you time to set up tension and release; I find four-bar loops just breathe better.

– very true, as the video on David’s blog demonstrates. The caveat? – enabling the hack will disable the device’s undo memory buffer (perhaps leading to some more chaotic sequences?)

Update: Cyenobite points out this video example/how-to on using the above hack –
