Pioneer DJ AS-1 - hands-on

Published on May 18, 2017 Future Music Magazine

"Simon Arblaster and Si Truss demo and discuss the latest edition to Pioneer DJ’s collaboration with Dave Smith Instruments, the Toraiz AS-1.

Following on from last year’s release of the Toraiz SP-16, we knew that there would be more to come from the fledgling music production range.

Fast forward to the NAMM 2017 show and the launch of the AS-1, a monosynth with a single voice from the DSI Prophet 6 lying within, encapsulated in a more ‘DJ-friendly’ chassis.

While we were very pleased with the sounds on offer, we weren’t too sure about the choice of controls and keypad deployed. So then, what better reason to take a closer look AS-1 to see what else lurks under the hood."
