Is this the new Pioneer DJ Toraiz? New photos of what look like a new colourful CDJ-shaped unit have appeared on both Dirtybird’s and Luciano’s Instagram, pictured and embedded below. The new piece of kit, which has the Pioneer DJ logo along the side, look a lot like a CDJ and Toraiz hybrid, with the platter replaced with a selection of coloured buttons.
First spotted by the eagle-eyed editors at DJ Tech Tools, if this is the new Toraiz, Pioneer DJ seem to have abandoned the RMX-style footprint in favour of lining it up beside their industry standard media players. Removing the jog wheel completely may raise some eyebrows, though it does make sense to keep the same form factor. We’ll be keeping a close eye on this one. Perhaps there’ll be more news from ADE next week. We're still hung up on these white CDJs announced last month.
