Ok.. I was going to put this in the Gear Buliding & Custumization thread, but there is no building or custumizing... so I figured it could go here.

I want to do this:

How does this work?

1. Does the pad work as an effect that can be bypassed? or is it always on?

2. Would I simply plug the guitar into this, and then plug the Kaoss pad into an Amp?

Notice that I don't want to do what others are doing and add a touch pad into the workings of the guitar, I simply want to do like in this video and place the unit on the guitar itself.

Any ideas/tips/input will be appreciated

God bless

The model that guy is using is the Korg Kaossilator, which is very different from a Kaoss Pad. While the Kaoss Pad is kind of an effects processor and a sampler, the Kaossilator is simply a synthesizer. As such, 1. No, it doesn't work like an effects unit, it only has output jacks 2. No, you would need to plug your guitar into your amp and the Kaossilator would go to a different output.

If you want crazy effects a la Muse, you would need the Kaoss Pad KP3, which itself is pretty large to be placed on your guitar and thus why people add a X-Y pad on the guitar to control the KP3. Or you can disassemble the Kaoss Pad, remove the pad and place it on your guitar and somehow wire the pad to control the main unit, but the discontinued KP2 is far better for this purpose since the pads on the KP2 and KP3 are quite different, with the KP2 being easier to work with.
Wave goodbye to the past.
You've got your whole life to lead.

I'd just buy Matt Bellamy's signature guitar. It would work so much better and sound so much better.

3000 pounds, whatever that comes out to (~$4500?)

Actually, it's like 8000USD.

But it's worth it. I'm considering it.
