About Toariz Squid

Hi Pioneer, I would like to know what are the real reasons why the Squid firmware is not updated, being a product that shines with its own light. They keep the survey asking users for feedback but no action is taken to make the suggestions and corrections a reality. Have a good day.

here's a glass half full answer to your question (dated but still optimistic c. Sep 2020):

https://forums.pioneerdj.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/900001512686-Is-the-Squid-still-alive-

...and here's a glass half empty answer to your question (less dated, from Mar 2022): https://www.elektronauts.com/t/pioneer-toraiz-sp-16/18482/1365

both answers are not actual answers - strictly speaking - but they are the best available 'assessments' i've found online of the Toraiz era. more importantly, both are probably the most honest, truthful and sincere attempt at framing an actual answer - while also being constrained by an NDA -  we are ever going to read. both were written by a legit OG TORAIZ user and legendary official pioneerdj forum TORAIZ moderator (emeritus?), the one like the RhythmDroid [/ tasteful airhorn sounds].

(post-script: there's a third quasi-answer, which is more of a 'glass of conjecture filled to the brim with either nothing or something or both', which is a recent IG post by RhythmDroid showing current setup.... "where there was once a SQUID, a HAPAX now sits" (to quote myself being weirdly dramatic).

i feel that and identify with that 100%. under my couch there's a Squid in a box that I also think could have been a legendary machine coveted for generations. and even though it is very strategically important to my cats as a point of ambush, in another universe it at least has a drum mode. I picked up a HAPAX as a SQUID replacement a while back and have almost nothing but good things to say about.

Thank you for your answer.

I just bought hapax 

and now my squid sleeps in his box. It's a shame,
because it's a sequencer that could have been amazing
and a top seller.
Best regrads
