Toraiz Squid

Multitrack sequencer

With the Squid, Toraiz presents a 16-track multitrack sequencer that can record to connected equipment via MIDI and CV/Gate. Squid is a central control element for expanders, synthesizers, drum computers, mini synths and modular systems. 16 tracks can be assigned to different sound generators, which are fired with notes via a compact and portable device. Each track has a memory capacity of 64 patterns, with a length of up to 64 steps (4 bars) per pattern; 128 projects can be archived and recalled internally. The Squid Manager software provides fast import and export of patterns, projects and MIDI clips between the sequencer and a computer. You can also quickly exchange patterns between Squid and DAW.

Play me!

Each pattern can be recorded with different methods. Kickdrum and HiHat, for example, are programmed in the TR grid. The bass line is played in by hand using the sixteen touch-sensitive pads or a connected keyboard; it is helpful to quantify which notes are played exactly on the steps. In chord mode, tuned chords offer accurate note combinations. The arpeggiator, which can also be activated in the Pattern, serves as a further playing aid. Each step has a maximum polyphony of eight voices. A further highlight is the random function for pitch, note length and velocity per pattern, in addition Program Change and Control Change (CC#) commands can be changed and recorded in real time!

For Studio and Live Performances

Different playback effects per track give enough room to vary the pattern you just created. By means of crossfaders, rhythm changes smoothly blend into the action and detach the mere playing of patterns from their original grid. In order to be able to play melodies far away from the proven 12-tone scale, there is a selection of further tone scales in the Squid. The global Swing/Shuffle control should not remain unmentioned, a short turn and the magic line from Four-to-the-Floor to House and Funk is crossed.




Numerous connections

The programmed sequences are then forwarded to expanders and synthesizers via two MIDI ports. Alternatively, the second MIDI output can be assigned as Thru, which simplifies the integration into more complex setups. Two full CV/Gate outputs can also be assigned to the tracks. Since these can be switched between Volt/Octave and Hertz/Volt or Gate and S-Trigg, everything from the Eurorack modular system to the original Minimoog to a Korg MS-20 must be connected that requires control voltage for "communication". The two DIN Sync outputs can be used to synchronize a TB-303 and a TR-606 directly with the Squid. In addition, there is a clock output, which benefits the Korg Volca series or the Teenage Engineering Pocket series.
