The Pioneer TORAIZ SP-16 is a professional sampler and 16-step sequencer that integrates Dave Smith Instruments Prophet-6 analogue filters, giving your creations a warm, analogue richness and presence.
You can use TORAIZ SP-16’s simple layout and large touch screen for producing, or use it as a standalone unit in the DJ booth to enhance performances. Just load samples, create patterns, add FX, loops, and manipulate their parameters to make your music your own.
Drop sounds into the sequencer to create your own 16-step loops and use the six dials to modulate the sounds. The multi-coloured buttons reflect the colours you’ve assigned each sound: for example, kick drums in red. You can save your patterns then play them back instantly in the booth or on stage. The 16 Performance Pads are taken from our DJ controllers to give you a truly tactile experience. Load up to 16 samples to the pads, then finger drum freely to layer sounds on-the-fly. The lights reflect the colours you’ve assigned to each sound; while Velocity Mode lets you control the volume of the sample with how hard you hit the pad.
All information is displayed on a 7-inch full-colour touch screen giving in-depth sample information. Quickly browse and load samples, and allocate colours to them for a visual guide. Or see real time waveforms and full details of the sample’s characteristics, and use the dials underneath to manipulate a variety of parameters.
With Pioneer collaborating with Dave Smith Instruments, the TORAIZ SP-16 features the same analogue filters found in the Prophet-6 synthesiser. Use the dials to sculpt your sound and manipulate Drive, Cut Off and Resonance, adding true analogue warmth and presence.
The SP-16 delivers 16-voice polyphony so you can play all 16 samples at once, even when you’re using time stretch or editing the sound using the touch screen amp envelope. The 8GB of flash memory means you’ve got plenty of space, and you can use it as a stand-alone unit, with no need for a laptop
Add the TORAIZ SP-16 to your CDJ or XDJ set-up using Pro DJ Link and the sampler will snap your one-shots and loops to the beat of the master deck. So you can layer multiple sounds over your tracks and they’ll always be in sync. It also has a MIDI clock so you can connect other devices via USB and stay in sync, and we’ll be adding connectivity with DAWs and synths at a later date.
