The Pioneer Toraiz Squid is a multi-track sequencer that aims to become the beating heart of your studio and live performance setups thanks to the unique workflow that allows you to develop new musical styles and build interesting patterns and phrases. The Squid is able to simultaneously synchronise and control up to 16 instruments thanks to the multiple in/outputs and lets you connect to your DAW so you can record your improvised sessions and turn them into full tracks with ease. The Toraiz Squid is perfect for both music producers and live performers thanks to the wealth of incredibly creative tools that let you create unique styles and tracks.
The Squid can be hooked up to a variety of hardware such as synthesisers, instruments, modular synths, and drum machines, which makes it ideal for on-the-fly performances and production sessions. The intuitive layout and controls are easy to navigate, which enables your ideas to come to life whenever inspiration strikes. This quality production machine allows you to randomise sounds, sequences, and drums, all in key with each other, so it sounds natural and pristine. You have access to endless polyrhythmic looping options and can instantly alter the playback of the sequencer's speed and direction. The Squid also features the world's first 'Groove Bend' function that lets you speed up or slow down the groove as you create original patterns in real time and by controlling everything in one place you can focus on developing phrases.
Thanks to the intuitive layout, it's super easy to navigate the various features. You create patterns and phrases using the 16 multi-coloured LED backlit performance pads with the step edit function. By setting step parameters, you can perform live as if the pads were keys on a keyboard; you can then combine various sequencer functions like interpolation and a harmoniser to help build your sounds. Once you've developed a pattern, you can instantly re-arrange your phrases to create any idea as it springs to mind. Enhance your sound further with the performance functions that include running direction, speed modulation, and groove bend.
The Squid instantly records all of your performance information in the background so you'll never lose a pattern or phrase that you've accidentally created so you have the ability to recall any happy accidents that may occur. Whether you're experimenting or messing around, as soon as you hear something you love, you can use the time warp feature to recall it and save it as a sequence pattern for your next track. Once you've fallen in love with a pattern and phrase, you can rapidly transfer the sequences, projects, and MIDI clips between the Squid and your computer thanks to the manager function. You can also import a sequence pattern created inside of your DAW directly to the Squid and instantly arrange it using the sequencers functions, and then return it back to your DAW to clean it up.
The Squid multi-track sequencer comes with a wide variety of connections that enable you to connect to a wealth of hardware. The connections include a USB-B terminal as well as a MIDI input, MIDI output, and MIDI thru port. Two sets of CV/Gate outputs enable you to communicate with your modular gear while Clock and DIN sync in/output terminals allow you to expand your setup beyond belief. This eclectic range of connection ports will enable you to combine the power of your DAW with modern, modular, and vintage synthesisers as well as drum machines; all signals are automatically converted.
