Pioneer TORAIZ Series

Contemporary Meets Classic

When Pioneer first announced their partnership with Dave Smith in 2016, it was a surprise that had both DJs and synth heads anticipating what was next. For the leaders in digital DJ tech to team up with a synthesis legend, something incredible had to be brewing.

The fruit of these two creative forces coming together is here in Pioneer TORAIZ, an innovative family of gear that puts pure analog sound in the hands of today's DJs and beatmakers. We'll get a closer look at the TORAIZ SP-16 sampler and sequencer and the TORAIZ AS-1 analog synthesizer in this Spotlight.

Pioneer DJ TORAIZ SP-16 Sampler and Sequencer

The TORAIZ SP-16 is an all-in-one musical creation machine. Armed with a 16-step sequencer, 16 tactile control pads and a large, full color LCD screen, the SP-16 puts everything in front of you, and nothing between you and your next masterpiece. Add to all of that the same analog filters found on Dave Smith's Prophet-6 synth, and it's got all the warm analog goodness you need.

Beatmakers will appreciate that the SP-16's 8GB of flash memory means it can be used as a standalone tool -- no laptop needed! Store all your samples on-board, then twist and mangle them with wild abandon -- the SP-16's powerful processor can handle it. The SP-16 comes loaded with 2GB of Loopmasters samples, so you can get started building beats right out of the box.

Pioneer DJ TORAIZ AS-1 Monophonic Analog Synthesizer

An excellent addition to any electronic musician's rig, the TORAIZ AS-1 is an analog, monophonic synth featuring the same filters found in DSI's legendary Prophet-6. Go from fat to gnarly with a twist of the low- and high-pass filters, feeling the wide sweep of each. A 64-step sequencer gives you ample room to craft intricate sequences you can mangle and warp through the various filters and effects, or play single-note lines with the touchpad keyboard.

The slider on the AS-1's left side grants you another degree of control -- perfect for on-the-fly manipulations of your loops and sequences. You're sure to create a ton of sounds you like on the AS-1 -- good thing it includes 495 slots to save your custom presets!

Melding of the Minds

Pioneer's collaboration with Dave Smith means more than just classic filters. TORAIZ is a bridge between the worlds of digital DJing and analog synthesis. Now, DJs and electronic music producers have tools that integrate classic analog sounds seamlessly with their modern gear.

Already own a CDJ or XDJ system? Pioneer's PRO DJ LINK technology works with Toraiz gear, making it easy to integrate these fully analog tones into your CDJ/XDJ rig. The SP-16 will add sync'd loops, and you can use the AS-1 to generate analog leads and riffs on top of the tracks! And of course, the SP-16 and AS-1 play well together too: just connect the two with a MIDI cable to keep your beats in sync as you build intricate patterns.
