Pioneer DJ and Dave Smith Launch New Sampler

Pioneer DJ and Dave Smith have launched the TORAIZ SP-16 sampler and step sequencer, which includes Dave Smith analogue filters and a Pro DJ Link.

The sampler features a touch screen and layout, 16 sampler engines and analog filters based on Dave Smith Instruments’ Prophet-6 synthesiser and quantize via Pro DJ Link, Pioneer DJ said, eliminating the need to take a laptop into the booth.

“We’ve poured more than 20 years of electronic music industry experience into our first sampler to create a versatile sound machine,” Pioneer said. “Load samples via USB or from the internal memory; then use the 16-step sequencer to create patterns or playback loops or trigger one-shots with the multi-colored performance pads. And, if you’re connected to CDJs via Pro DJ Link, everything is synced to the beat of the master deck, so you can get creative with confidence.”

The TORAIZ SP-16 will be available this summer, Pioneer DJ said.

Features include:

  • The ability to create up to 256 patterns using the 16-step sequencer



  • The ability to drop sounds into the sequencer to create your own 16-step loops and use the six dials to modulate the sounds. The multicoloured buttons reflect the colors 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.



  • Seven-inch full-color touch screen with sample information



  • The ability to quickly browse and load samples and allocate colors to them for a visual guide, or view real-time waveforms and details of the sample’s characteristics and use the dials underneath to manipulate a variety of parameters.



  • Multicolored Performance Pads with Velocity Mode



  • Performance Pads, taken from DJ controllers, to offer a tactile experience. Load up to 16 samples to the pads, then finger drum freely to layer sounds on-the-fly. The lights reflect the colors you’ve assigned to each sound, while velocity mode lets you control the volume of the sample with how hard you hit the pad.



  • 8 GB of flash memory and real-time processing for non-stop music production



  • 16-voice polyphony



  • Analogue filters from Dave Smith Instruments' Prophet-6 synthesiser, use the dials to manipulate drive, cutoff and resonance and add analogue warmth and presence.



  • Pro DJ Link and MIDI clock
