Pioneer DJ Toraiz SP-16 Overview

  • 1Description

Designed in collaboration with Dave Smith Instruments, the Pioneer Toraiz SP-16 is a professional sampler and step sequencer featuring the Prophet-6 filter, bringing new creative possibilities to producers and DJs working in the studio or performing live. The SP-16 utilizes a simple layout with a 7" touchscreen to load samples, create patterns, add FX, loops, and manipulate their parameters to make inspiring and original music.
The Pioneer Toraiz SP-16 features a powerful engine, which organizes each project into scenes, tracks, and patterns. A project can have up to 16 scenes, with each scene holding 16 tracks for a total of 256 samples. Each track holds a pattern with 4 to 64 steps. The arrangement function allows you to select any number of patterns for playback and specify how many times a pattern plays, as well as any tempo changes. Each sample track includes an AMP envelope, insert FX, and a sequence editor. Additionally, there are send FX and master FX available to help craft professional-sounding mixes direct from the unit.

The front panel features 16 large, multi-colored LED pads with velocity sensitivity. Each track can have a custom color to help keep you organized in low-light situations. The analog filter section offers a high-pass filter and a low-pass filter with resonance and overdrive. There are four function buttons including track, mute, slice, and scale, which enable you to play a sample chromatically or within an assigned musical scale for melodies and basslines. The touch strip can be utilized for pitch and repeat, or assigned to custom parameters within the sample or FX engines. Additionally, any parameter can be sequenced on a per-step basis, which allows for intricate FX sequencing. The Pioneer Toraiz SP-16 ships with an AC power adapter, a power cord, USB cable, and a LAN cable.

    Pioneer DJ Toraiz SP-16 Reviews

    Toraiz SP-16 Professional Sampler - Dave Smith Instruments is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from not fit for purpose Over the last 10 months I have submitted a list of 20 bugs to Pioneer who have repaired only 3. I just discovered my music skips when scenes change and the when I send CC to my mixer to unmute a channel it is a fraction of a second late which makes a fast appregio sound broken. Combined with all the other bugs this has made it clear to me that this unit is not good enough for amateur, let alone professionals and have decided to sell it. It is 3 times easier to use Ableton Live and that is more powerful and stable. The Toraiz makes some things easier than a DAW but some things are actually harder and it is very limiting (no high res audio, 4 bars only, small unresponsive screen, 1 minute sample/track limit). It may be a better sampler than sequencer but for my purposes it is not fit for purpose.
