Pioneer Toraiz Team
I like the physical layout of the Toraiz is nice and conducive to live performance which I find critically important. It's nice to have the physical buttons and flip through the mute/slice/scale real quick. The thing that struck me right away after setting up and diving in was that everything was very intuitive. I'll probably RTFM soon though to find the hidden gems.
I came in to Toraiz late last year and just after you had release V1.2 which was great because I needed the midi features. I bought a midi box to split midi to 8 thru ports. Right now I have Toraiz controlling 5 midi devices with a few more planned. It's pretty sick. What would be nice for midi is to be able to use a keyboard to play the notes in and record and to have some polyphony. It'd kinda make everything just perfect for my setup.
Hardware/software mixed dev isn't the easiest thing in the world and it's nice to see ongoing updates. I've just had a horrible experience with some (censored brand) products, support doesn't even get back to me and they don't even have product updates to fix glaring issues so it's nice to see a pioneer staff member taking in feedback and seeing a schedule for product updates. Community communication is critical, gives me confidence in your brand and shows that there is an on going future to your product.
Only been a couple months with Toraiz but I am having a blast being finally off the computer and back into jamming mode for making music.
Will come back and post some vids soon.
Thanks dev teams and pioneer community guy.
