The Pioneer DJ Toraiz AS-1 is a powerful monophonic analog synthesizer designed in conjunction with Dave Smith Instruments - The perfect accompaniment with the Toraiz SP16 Sequencer.
Featuring a 64-step sequencer, Arpeggiator, Prophet-6 analogue synthesis engine and a touchpad-style keyboard and slider, the AS-1 is an ideal solution for live performance and studio music production. 7-built in effects, including a new distortion effect, add real analog grit and warmth for your leads.
The Power of the Prophet with 64 Step SequencerUse the touchpad-style keyboard to perform with the sounds you create. Use Scale Mode to change the notes assigned to the keys, choosing from any of the 21 on-board scales. You don’t need a deep understanding of musical theory. Just select the scale in which you want to play and the TORAIZ AS-1 will make sure your performance is in perfect harmony.
True Analogue Sound
Create your own fat bass and edgy lead sounds thanks to the synthesis engine at the core of the TORAIZ AS-1, which is based on the discrete analog circuitry of Dave Smith Instruments’ revered Prophet-6 synthesizer. The TORAIZ AS-1 has two voltage-controlled oscillators (VCO) with continuously variable triangle, sawtooth and pulse wave shapes. Sculpt your sound using the two voltage-controlled filters (VCF) also from the Prophet-6: a 4-pole, resonant low-pass filter that can self-oscillate and a 2-pole, resonant high-pass filter.
Fully Programmable Presets
Use the TORAIZ AS-1 to create one-of-a-kind sounds using two VCOs, two VCFs, one VCA,1 two EGs,2 and one LFO,3 then save each sound and its parameter settings as a program so you can access it later. There are 495 preset programs to give you inspiration, each with a different sound and 64-step sequence that can be edited independently. In addition, you can save up to 495 of your own programs in the five user banks, and you can assign up to 13 programs as Quick Programs to each key on the keyboard and instantly recall them at any time.
Get creative with the Prophet-6-derived dual effects engine including a brand new distortion effect. Add a single effect or pair two together to add extra texture to your sounds. True bypass preserves a pure analog signal path.

Similarly to the Pioneer DJM and DDJ series, Pioneer's expert product designers have ensured the T-AS1 is incredibly easy to use, even in the darkest club environments or on stage. Rugged rotary knobs for filters and effects, with a backlit button interface and ribbon strip. AS-1 also features a bright OLED display and a simple menu system for navigation and patch browsing. As ever, a robust metal chassis will stand the test of time like industry standard Pioneer DJ equipment.
You can connect the TORAIZ AS-1 synth to the TORAIZ SP-16 live sampler via MIDI and use the sampler’s sophisticated sequencer to create even more complex patterns with the powerful analog sounds you’ve created in the synthesizer. Together, the two TORAIZ instruments can be connected to your DJM mixer via Pro DJ Link and MIDI, creating a set-up where the CDJs play the track, the TORAIZ SP-16 adds loops and one-shots, and the TORAIZ AS-1 generates unique analog leads in sync with the BPM of the music.
