6 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes 2 years' warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 6 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 180 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 6 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Pioneer DJ TORAIZ AS-1 Monophonic Analog Synthesizer

Details
The Pioneer DJ TORAIZ AS-1 Monophonic Analog Synthesizer comes from a collaboration between experienced DJ and production equipment manufacturers Pioneer, and the legendary synthesizer creators Dave Smith Instruments. With the ability to generate anything from truly aggressive abrupt sounds to warm and soft strings, the AS-1 is a pure analog monophonic synthesizer for production and live performance. Following the launch of Pioneer's live sampler in August 2016, which will connect seamlessly with the AS-1, this mono-synth is driven by a fully programmable true analog synthesis engine based around the analog circuitry of the Prophet-6 by Dave Smith Instruments. The AS-1 is capable of producing a powerful analog sound, making it the perfect addition to any production or live performance setup.

Created By Revered & Experienced Designers

When two designers with such incredible track-records and experience come together to design a synthesizer, you know it's going to be good. Utilizing the discrete analog circuitry from the Dave Smith Instruments' Prophet 6, the TORAIZ AS-1 is capable of producing powerful and effective monophonic sounds. Pioneer DJ worked closely with Dave Smith himself to create the AS-1, and the experience of both definitely shows.

Full Compatibility With SP-16 Live Sampler

Connecting the AS-1 to the SP-16 live sampler opens up a whole host of possibilities. Simply connecting the two via MIDI, you can use the SP-16's sophisticated sequencer to create incredible patterns with the sounds generated with the AS-1. The two units can be connected to your DJM mixer via Pro DJ link and MIDI, enabling you to play tracks through the CDJs, add loops and one shots using the SP-16, and create powerful and unique analog leads all in sync with the music.

Pure Analog Sound From The Prophet-6

The potential for powerful basslines and screaming leads is all down to the synthesis engine based on the analog circuitry from Dave Smith Instruments' Prophet-6. Featuring two VCOs (voltage controlled oscillators), you have control over continously variable triangle, sawtooth and pulse waves. Alongside these lies two VCFs (voltage controlled filters) from the Prophet-6: a 4-pole reonant LPF (low pass filter) with self-oscillation potential, and a 2-pole resonant HPF (high pass filter).

Full Programmability & 495 Available Presets

Utilizing the AS-1's interface, you can create unique sounds which can be saved along with its parameter settings and can be instantly accessed at a later time. Featuring 495 preset programs, all with their own unique 64-step sequence, you'll never run out of inspiration to fill the extra 495 available programs with your own sounds. 13 programs are assignable as "Quick Programs" which can be recalled at any time from the touch-pad keys.

Prophet-6 Effects

Featuring the dual-effects engine from the Prophet-6, you are able to add a single effect, or even pair two together for extra layers and texture to add to your sound. True bypass preserves the pure analog signal.

Intuitive User Interface & Performance Features

A huge array of sounds can be generated using the intuitive touchpad-style keyboard and slider. Aspects such as the arpeggiator, scale mode, and the 64-step sequencer bring a whole world of possibilities to your sound sculpting.

13 Touchpad-Style Keys With Scale Modes

The Toraiz AS-1 features 13 unique touchpad-style keys. These can be used to play the AS-1, or recall any 13 preset or user saved programs on the fly. The AS-1 has 21 on-board scale modes, meaning you can rapidly flip between different scales depending on the feel you want within the music. The arpeggiator is also utilized through these keys, which can be used either as a single note arpeggio, or changed in real time using multiple keys at once.
