Pioneer announces Toraiz AS-1 Synth (based on DSI Prophet-6)

19th January 2017

Pioneer has announced AS-1, the second musical instrument in their Toraiz range, a monophonic analog synthesizer. Its intuitive controls include parameter knobs that let you make both subtle and dramatic changes to the tone of your music to create your own personalised sound. Plus you can use the touchpad-style keyboard and slider to manipulate sounds during performances.

The Toraiz AS-1 is driven by a fully programmable, true analogue synthesis engine based on the discrete analogue circuitry in Dave Smith Instruments' Prophet-6 synthesizer. It also inherits 7 on-board effects from the Prophet-6 synth as well as a brand new digital distortion.

Key features:

Release is expected in March. Price TBA.
