The new Pioneer DJ TORAIZ AS-1 was created in conjunction with Dave Smith and is a great synthesizer for live performances and studio production. The TORAIZ AS-1 features a 64-Step sequencer, rubber pads for playback, a bright OLED display, USB and MIDI ports, all in a metal chassis.
The TORAIZ AS-1 follows the suit of the first TORAIZ SP-16 Step sequencer where Pioneer DJ is starting to test the waters of the production and live performance realm. This TORAIZ AS-1 reminds me of the older Roland synths and even some of the newer Akai sequencers as well. Check out our full review video below from DSTAR to see a full breakdown of the TORAIZ AS-1.
