Torq Conectiv from M-Audio is a complete package for the computer based DJ that includes Torq performance software and the Conectiv USB computer interface.
The software supports multiple digital audio formats, including MP3s, which negates having to cart around a heavy box of vinyl records or CDs. All the usual functions required for DJ work are supported within the software.
The Conectiv USB interface is very flexible in that it can function as use as a self-contained digital system, multi-effects processor, or as a slave from control CDs/vinyl. The inputs connect to all standard DJ mixers, turntables and CD players and even allows for mixing analog vinyl sources with digital tracks.
The Torq Conectiv Vinyl/CD Control Pack includes the Torq Control Vinyl disc, that allows a DJ to control audio files in the Torq software with the same feel and response as real vinyl records. By connecting a turntable to the Conectiv interface and enabling external control in Torq, the performer is able to cue and scratch, just as if they were using the original records.
The Torq Control CD functions in a similar manner, but uses instead a DJ CD player. Both methods provide fast response and bi-directional positioning, ensures that Torq precisely tracks the control discs for easy beat-juggling.
