Avid Technologies 9910-65005-00 overview

  • 1Description

The Avid Torq 2.0 DJ Performance Software introduces features that are sure to enhance DJ sets and deliver complex mixing capabilities with very minimal effort. Torq 2.0 will run on both Windows and Mac OS formats, and features automatic beat matching, along with a multitude of effects and performance features. Four full-featured virtual decks are provided for remixing audio files in realtime.

The Traq-Morph crossfader literally reinvents the concept of basic transitioning with crossfading effects that include filter, cut, duck, and morph. An array of on-board effects is at your disposal, and third-party plug-ins are also supported. Torq 2.0 is easily controlled via MIDI, with CD decks, turntables, or may be used internally without any external control at all.
