I have to say I’m not really a fan of the new look. I mean it’s cool in an weatherproof iPod sort of way and at least the back is flat with rubber feet to keep it from rolling. But I really prefer a more standardized, blocky sort of shape that makes it easy to put things right up next to one another on your work space. I’d also probably go for the Kaoss Quad Pad myself..

The addition of an SD card slot is interesting. What’s it for? Loading samples? That’s pretty cool, but I don’t know how functional it would be in something that small. Perhaps that’s what the four buttons are above the red and green ones? What I think would be cool is if you got an editor program that would allow you to edit your own effects and then dump them into the MiniKP.
