Pioneer has just announced a new analog synth called the TORAIZ AS-1.

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-1 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. With its small footprint and different ways to perform with it, I think its sure to be a hit at NAMM 2017. We'll be sure to bring you a full video on this new device when we hit up the Pioneer Booth tomorrow so stay tuned! Press release and links below...

Pioneer DJ is steadily rolling out brand new products that work in perfect harmony with the new Serato DJ Software. Last week they unveiled the new Pioneer DJM-900SRT and the DDJ-SP1 that will work with the new Serato DJ 1.5.0 update and today they announced the new DDJ-SR which is a 2-channel Digital DJ controller that also controls the Serato DJ software.
