  • Kaossilator 2 hack: hands free (part 1/2)

    Hi i don't know if you look at these comments since this was done years ago but here goes: I'm so ticked at Korg and myself because 4 years ago I bought this but when I realized the mic didn't work it was out of warranty. I didn't really use it much so I forgot about it. BUT now I need to use it record a tongue drum that is amplified and when I saw this I started to "Youtube videos" someone posted one about the mic switch button and I decided to "open " my Ko 2 up. Well I couldn't believe it. that little piece that goes over the two metal thingies to make the mic turn on and off was GONE i mean I think it was NEVER there. I looked at the other side where the on/off and volume buttons are and sure enough that little tiny box (switch) is there.

I looked at the other side where the on/off and volume buttons are and sure enough that little tiny box (switch) is there. In doing this the damn yellow useless button broke off. In the meantime I GOT the MIC to enable both external and internal BUT I have to hold a piece of tin foil on a corn skewer to do it...this makes playing my instrument virtually impossible to play as I still have to hold the other button to record!! so now I need to figure out a way to fix this. If I bought that part I still have the problem of the button being broken. Any suggestions for someone who doesn't have the knowledge or tools for soldering etc. See the pictures for more details!! Thanks so muchMaria

    Okay that's not a bad solution actually!! Now that I have a big hole where the switch should be. so let me just make sure I understand since this is totally not my forte (hence calling it a "thingy" lol) so, the two little tiny metal pieces that i have to have metal touching to make work will need to be soldered to a type of wire on each end that will come together like speaker wire when I need to record...and/or those two could be soldered to some kind of on/off switch. ? is that about correct? Look I also found this "temporary" fix..it's not perfect but a little better than the corn skewers!!~ Thanks so much again!Maria
