Pioneer DJ and Dave Smith Instruments have developed the second instrument from the Toraiz Series: AS-1. It is a monophonic analog synthesizer, with two oscillators, LPF and HPF filters, amplitude and filter envelopes, digital effects, a 64-step sequencer, arpeggiator and a touchpad-style keyboard.
All Toraiz AS-1 sound engine is adapted from the renowned Prophet-6 synthesizer, so the idea is to bring an excellent analog synth experience.
It comes with 495 presets and there are 5 user banks available so that you can save up to 495 custom patches. There are also two FX slots where it’s possible to set effects such as chorus, phaser, delay, distortion, ring modulation and more.
The unit has a LED slider, which will add dynamic changes to the sound. The slider can control Oscillator 1 frequency, Oscillator 2 frequency, Filter amount, LFO amount and FX mix.
Toraiz AS-1 has 2 main outputs and one Phone output, all available as TRS plugs, 5-pin Midi In/Out jacks, USB port and a trigger input.
