Pioneer DJ and Splice Collaborate

To make the TORAIZ SP-16 the first hardware sampler to connect users
to a cloud-based music creation workflow

TORRANCE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–We’ve partnered with Splice, the cloud-based music production platform
used by over 700,000 producers, to connect the extensive sample library
Splice Sounds to our professional sampler, the TORAIZ SP-16. The
game-changing collaboration makes the TORAIZ SP-16 the first hardware
sampler to offer seamless integration with an online sample library, and
we’re celebrating by offering a month’s free access to Splice Sounds.

Splice Sounds revolutionised sample hunting when it launched in 2015 as
the first subscription-based sample library, enabling you to download
individual sounds rather than buy entire sample packs. With new samples
released every week from over 50 leading labels and renowned artists,
Splice Sounds offers TORAIZ SP-16 users endless inspiration at their

The new integration seamlessly connects the TORAIZ SP-16 to the world’s
largest collection of high quality samples and loops. You can pick your
favorite individual samples from the Splice Sounds catalogue of over 1
million sounds from world-class providers, build and save custom sample
kits, and programme 32-step sequences on the web and on mobile devices
using Splice’s online sequencer, “Beatmaker.” Now, you can easily export
your custom sample kits and sequences to the TORAIZ SP-16 with the click
of a button as there is no need to import samples one by one. Simply
download your creations as SCENE files to your laptop or a USB drive,
connect the TORAIZ SP-16 via USB and transfer the SCENE files across.
Then you can use the hardware’s features and FX to manipulate your
sounds further.

Our collaboration with Splice is natural; we’re two companies committed
to bringing state-of-the-art workflows to modern producers and this
marks the beginning of the next generation of cloud-compatible music
hardware. The integration combines the power and portability of a
stand-alone hardware sampler with the workflow flexibility and expansion
possibilities enabled by Splice’s cutting-edge software and web
connectivity. More developments will come soon, so stay tuned for

richer and more streamlined creation experience.”

To celebrate the launch of this new integration, in partnership with
Splice we’re offering one month’s free access to Splice Sounds,
