From the mighty Pioneer and built collaboration with Dave Smith Instruments is the powerful new Pioneer Toraiz AS-1 Analog Synth. This incredible analogue synth is the second musical instrument in the Toraiz series that brings new creative possibilities to your existing studio and stage set-up thanks to its ability to connect via MIDI and USB whilst maintaining a pure analogue signal path for a sound that will astonish.
Unbeatable analogue tone
The Toraiz AS-1 is driven by a true analog synthesis engine that is also fully programmable. Based on the discrete analog circuitry in Dave Smith Instruments’ Prophet-6, you'll have access to a synth that produces powerful analog sound and makes an ideal addition to the set-ups of professional and aspiring producers. Edgy leads, massive fat basses can all be created from variable triangle, sawtooth and pulse waves that are then run through the seven on-board effects, which – with the addition of a brand-new digital distortion – all originate from the Prophet-6 synth.
Also from the Prophet-6 is the addition of a 4-pole, resonant low-pass filter that can self-oscillate and a 2-pole, resonant high-pass filter, all of which can be used on any of the built in 495 presets to create sounds that are only limited by your imagination.
Intuitive user interface
The top panel of the Toraiz AS-1 is very clean to look at and all functions are easy to reach with minimal deep editing requirements. The bright OLED screen relays accurate parameter information which is ideal for darker environments such as clubs and stages. The touchpad-style keyboard and slider let you play unique phrases whilst the 64-step sequencer, arpeggiator and Scale Mode will bring even more creative flair to your performances. Effects and filters can be manipulated in real time easily too, making for some mind-bending analogue meltdown.
Pioneer are legendary when it comes to high-performance gear on the DJ circuit and the Pioneer Toraiz AS-1 Analog Synth is every bit as progressive as you would expect. Supreme analog sound with modern capabilities all packed into a robust metal chassis, this is one synth that you will hear on many recordings to come, why not make it yours?
