Pioneer DJ and Dave Smith Instruments has collaborated to create the TORAIZ SP-16 sampler and step sequencer.

This tactile sampler designed to be at home in the booth, the studio or on the stage, boasts an intuitive touch screen and layout, 16 powerful sampler engines, analogue filters based on Dave Smith Instruments' Prophet-6 synthesizer and quantize via Pro DJ Link.

The Toraiz SP-16 can be used as a stand-alone unit, making your setup that bit more compact but with even more creative options available. Most notably, the analogue filters from Dave Smith Instruments.

These filters help add rich and warm presence to the overall sound. A drive channel also helps give it a bit extra 'umph', according to Dave Smith, who is interested to see how DJs will creatively utilise this new analogue feature.

You can create up to 256 patterns using the 16-step sequencer, save your patterns and then play them back instantly. The multicoloured performance pads with velocity mode provide a true tactile sampler experience allowing you to finger drum freely to layer sounds on the fly. There are 2GB of sounds by Loopmasters already on board and samples can also be loaded in via USB or from the 8GB internal memory.
