It's your instrument

The T-1 can be customized to suit your music. In fact, it is many instruments in one: Each of the T-1’s 16 tracks can be set up in one of three modes.


Compose rhythms and melodies from scratch with creative musical algorithms, and tweak them to your desire with detailed step editing.

Connect to everything

The signal flow of any modern studio is a complex web of analog, digital and wireless signals and keeping your instruments connected and in sync can be a drain for your creativity. The T-1 solves this by communicating via MIDI, USB, analog CV and gates, Ableton Link and Wi-Fi connections with all of your gear.

Performing is composing

The T-1 is an instrument designed to be played in the here and now. Whether you are working in a studio or on stage, the path between musical inspiration and performance has never been shorter.
Make relative parameter changes on one or multiple tracks simultaneously, save the changes or return to the starting point. With the T-1, your music making process is a constantly evolving flow.

Ableton Link

Play together with the freedom of a live band. T-1 lets you keep track of time with Ableton Link over WiFi

Musical scales

Lock notes into musical scales and create melodies by modulating the pitch with different melody phrases and looping random sequences

Randomize everything

Randomization can be added to every parameter on each track, making it possible to add slight variations or total random chaos

Euclidean rhythms

T-1's Euclidean rhythms, which feature embedded velocity grooves and swing, make it a powerful tool for generating a wide range of vivid and dynamic patterns


Add repeats on top of euclidean pulses, and apply different voicing styles, to build repeating and arpeggiating patterns

Auto save

Built you projects iteratively, and avoid loosing work with the auto save feature

The Torso T1 is the most fluid, intuitive and fun hardware sequencer I’ve found in years.  With the T1, improvising becomes part of the creative flow taking you (and the crowd) on ever-evolving journeys of discovery.

The possibility to sequence and sync DAW, modular and other hardware synths is what makes the T-1 the perfect mothership in my hybrid setup. The balance between having pre-made sequences and programming stuff in the moment gives me the courage to explore and improvise.
