There are 6 models of the Korg KAOSS pad available to jam and manipulate sound and effects. The discontinued KP1, KP2, and the still production models KP3, KAOSS Pad Pro, as well as the Kaossilators yellow and limited edition pink, and the Mini KP effects processor. All models have a cooler than art touch pad and gobs of effects to a varying degree depending on which model. There are many players in this world that have been customizing and modifying guitars and other instruments integrating the KAOSS line of instruments. Some consider it making the guitar into a full service guitar synthesizer. Don't know if it's safe to assume like some that anything that makes the guitar run through a filter and or LFO module counts the guitar as a true guitar synth but your belief makes it what it is with no judgment implied. Check out some of the possibilities such a device offers during the second portion of this video from Manson Guitars.

Before most people even knew what electronic music was. The BBC was developing new directions in sound and composition. Literally engineering new territory in sound by setting up a laboratory (room 13) dedicated to the research now famously known as the "Radiophonic Workshop." Home to the Dr Who soundtrack and such notables as Delia Derbyshire and George Martin. The documentary covers the history and much of the philosophy behind the workshop with countless interviews and insights from the people who were there. Watch all six parts from YouTube here.
