NAMM 2017: Pioneer DJ Toraiz AS-1 Monophonic Analog Synthesizer
Driven by a fully programmable, true analog synthesizer engine based on the discrete analog circuitry in Dave Smith Instruments' Prophet-6-synthesizer- the Toraiz AS-1 is a complete re imagining that collates hybridity in its truest form.
Working in a close collaboration directly with Dave Smith, Pioneer DJ's Toraiz AS-1 Mono is a high powered and intuitive synth that finds itself completely comfortable within any DJ's live gig. Featuring parameter knobs that allow for differing dynamics and user defined operation, you can personalize your sound to your hearts desire.
For added versatility, you can connect your Toraiz AS-1 to synth to the recently released Toraiz SP-16 live sampler via MIDI and use the sampler's sophisticated sequencer to develop and perform complex patterns, complete with an analog sound. When combined, the two devices may be connected to your DJM mixer via Pro DJ Link and then set up into an innovative configuration where the Toraiz SP-16 adds loops and one-shots and the Toraiz AS-1 combines distinctive analog leads in sync with the songs current BPM.
Fully programmable with 495 presets, the Toraiz AS-1 utilises two VCO'S, two VCF's. one VCA, two EGs and one LFO to provide an expansive selection of completely custom sounds. With five user banks you can easily save and edit your own self defined sounds, creating a comprehensive library of tones that can be easily accessed at any time.
