Preview of Pioneer DJ & Dave Smith Instruments Toraiz SP-16

One of the most intriguing announcements from Musikmesse is the collaboration between Pioneer DJ and Dave Smith Instruments. It has spawned the Toraiz SP-16 which we got a chance to get hands-on with.  

The almost ready for release Toraiz SP-16 is a touch-screen sampler with Dave Smith Analog Filters & Pro DJ Link. You can read more about the features here.

We chatted with Stewart from Pioneer DJ about the Toraiz SP-16 which is their first product in the production relam. While we weren't able to dive into menus on this prototype model, we got hands-on before the video and found it quite fun to play with considering the limited features available. The price of £1,200 GBP feels pretty high when you compare it to similar products on the market. But, we don't know exactly what it'll be capable of until Summer time.
