Advanced Hardware Sequencer for Live Performance

The Pioneer DJ Toraiz Squid is an innovative multitrack sequencer that any performing artist can appreciate. Right from the start, electronic musicians at Sweetwater were impressed with its connectivity — the Toraiz Squid allows you to control synths and drum machines via USB, MIDI, CV, or DIN sync. And its sequencing abilities are equally impressive, along with the ability to play scales and chords in real time with its 16 multicolor LED performance pads. And with the ability to easily import and export sequence patterns with your Mac or PC, the Pioneer DJ Toraiz Squid sequencer is just as powerful for music creation as it is for performance.
