    In other words, how do you connect speakers to a Kaossilayor Pro?

    (http://www.korg.com/product.aspx?pd=564)

    it has:
    - a usb output
    - a midi out
    - rca red and white (stereo audio) connectors

    i suspect i can use a usb and play through my laptop? or the rca cable through a stereo? but is there a way i can play it through a guitar amp?

    depends if the guitar amp is mono or stereo capable.

    With stereo capable it's easy. Get a phono to jack lead.

    If the amp is mono then you may need some sort of mains powered converter to bring the left and right together properly as a mono signal before connecting to the amp.

    thanks Chris, not sure if the amp is stereo, but suspect it's not... it's a line 6 basic amp.

    Any idea how else i can get sound out of the Kaossilator?

    Martian, Have you tried RTFM? (reading the f****ng manual) ;) ;) ;)
    Surely this will show you how to connect to an amplifier and speakers.
    Having said that, some manuals for music equipment these days seem to assume the buyer/owner will already know how to do these things.
    Try page 6 of this PDF document., http://www.korg.com/uploads/Support/KAOSSILATOR_PRO_OM_EFG1_634067737513300000.pdf showing the connections.
    Seems it connects to either an amplifier/mixer or active powered speakers.
    Must admit I like the vocoder facility of this unit. ;) ;) ;) ;)

    Or you use a couple of resistors to sum the left and right signals into mono. Bit of a cludge but then if it was proper kit it would be balanced line on XLRs.
