Musikmesse 2016: Pioneer DJ TORAIZ SP-16 Sampler Features Dave Smith Analogue Filters & Pro DJ Link

The new Toraiz SP-16 touch-screen, sampler with 16 sampler engines from Pioneer DJ includes filters made by Dave Smith (yes, Dave Smith Instruments!). Is this the perfect device for DJ producers?  

Take your creativity to another level in the booth, the studio and on stage with the TORAIZ SP-16 sampler and step sequencer. The tactile sampler features an intuitive touch screen and layout, 16 powerful sampler engines, analogue filters based on Dave Smith Instruments’ Prophet-6 synthesiser and quantize via Pro DJ Link. And you can use it as a stand-alone unit—no need to take a laptop into the booth.

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 multicoloured 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 from summer 2016 at an SRP of €1,599, including VAT.
