Product information "Torso Electronics - S-4"

The S-4 is Torso Electronics answer to all your sampling needs! A sleek device with polyphony, looping, granular synthesis and so much more.

Torso Electronics S-4 Sculpting Sampler provides a whole lot of options to give your samples a new coat of paint. The list is long and includes several so-called audio devices, which you can use as you wish on the four stereo tracks. Additionally, it is possible to bend your sounds with up to 20(!) modulation sources per track. There's a microphone, live sampling, Ableton Link - but first things first:

The S-4's audio devices include a tape player that lets you loop, detune, and chop up your samples. With this it is also possible to do live sampling - especially interesting for the live performers among you! Furthermore, there is the self-explanatory polyphonic sample player and a morphable resonator. This is essentially a filter bank with a whopping 48 bands. With the modulation sources' help, really special soundscapes are possible here. A powerful tool for sample editing is the Granular section of S-4, where you can have your samples split into tiny grains in real-time and make them sound completely new using time-warping and pitch-shifting.
Lastly, there are a variety of effects, such as bit crushing, drive and compression, as well as a reverb-delay combination with pitch shifting and shimmer.

As already mentioned, S-4 lets you edit the parameters of the various devices with up to 20 modulation sources. There are always 4 available per device, which can be assigned to absolutely any parameter. The modulation sources include complex LFOs, envelopes, and generative sequencing.

In terms of connectivity, S-4 has everything necessary to easily blend into any setup. MIDI in/out, analog sync in/out USB-C and two audio inputs and outputs. And if you need more inputs or outputs, you can even connect an audio interface to S-4!
If you rather want to beat up your synthesizers instead of playing them, S-4 even has a microphone built in to capture those sounds. There's WiFi for Ableton Link, a clean LCD display for visualization, and all of this built into a slick and solid aluminum enclosure.

The S-4 is a real workhorse when it comes to working with samples. Merely calling it a sampler doesn't do it justice.
