The Toraiz AS-1 is a collaboration between Dave Smith and Pioneer and features the same circuitry as the Prophet 6 but with a compact form that is designed to bridge the gap between DJing, production and live performance.
The unit is a monophonic synthesizer with 4 oscillators, 2 that can shift inbetween different waveforms, a sub oscillator and a noise oscillator. A high pass, and a low pass filter with modulation sources and largely based off of the Prophet 6. The keyboard has an arpeggiator, full 64 step sequencer, slew and scale mode. The step sequence mode offers various uses with a software editor and load/save preset sounds for ease of use.
The AS-1 offers seamless integration with the SP-16 so that one can use them both on stage to highlight the versatility of each unit.
