Here’sa blunt but effective way to get the Korg Kaossilator to speak serially – use an audio->MIDI converter –
Finally, thanks to internet, I found a Pure data patch to convert the kaossilator to midi data ! So I have now a kaossilator, and an XY midi touch pad for the price of a single kaossilator !! Great !
Get the pure data patch. (see web page)
Put your kaossilator out to your pc (mic or line in)
On pure data, select the midi “out to midiYoke 1”
On your host(fruity loops or other) select “midiYoke 1” as your midi in.
The channel are the 14th and the 15th.
You might need to fine tune the range of the CC in the patch ; they must go from 0 to 127.
Seems that audio to MIDI patch we covered a while back is proving useful for more than just theremins – Kaossilator MIDI via Google translate, original page in French

~libpd … Nice of you to post this Collin, not the insides I was looking for, so for anyone else landing here if you want to do a lot more by hacking of the yellow Kaossilator head over to,
I had wanted to do this back around 2008 or so but since it’s 2014 and mine is broke (at least the pad does not release note) I found the above and, looks pretty cool.
