Description


M-Audio Torq Conectiv DJ System 1.5 with Control Vinyls and CDs

M-Audio Torq Conectiv DJ System 1.5 with Control Vinyls and CDs includes the revolutionary Torq DJ software and the Conectiv bus-powered 4 x 4 USB audio interface. The breakthrough hardware/software system designed for DJs who perform and produce tracks with a laptop. Torq Conectiv delivers high-fidelity audio, all the right kinds of I/O (including dual phono preamps), and the ability to mix, beat-match and cue digital files with ease. Use it as a completely digital solution or process your vinyl and CDs on the fly. You can also create a hybrid digital/vinyl DJ rig with specially encoded Torq Control CDs and Torq Control Vinyl disks (both included). Torq supports popular file formats such as MP3, WAV, WMA and AAC files and is configured to automatically work with Conectiv right out of the box. And unlike most digital DJ systems, the Conectiv interface works with other third-party software as well.

M-Audio Torq Conectiv DJ System 1.5 takes your performance beyond simple beat-matching and crossfading between tracks. Tempo Anchors allow you to set the phase grid exactly on the beats of a song-even if the song changes tempo. You can also assign a track you're spinning to serve as the Tempo Master for everything in Torq, so looped samples and other tempo-based features will automatically match the master BPM. These new features are made possible by Torq 1.5 software's new zPlane Elastique Time Stretching algorithm, a time compression/expansion tool that performs audio warping with exceptional precision and sonic quality-keeping your entire mix in perfect sync.

On stage and in the studio, M-Audio Torq Conectiv DJ System 1.5 provides the ideal centerpiece for your audio production setup. Want to hook up your outboard gear? Torq can send and receive MIDI beat clock, allowing total synchronization with drum machines, effects boxes and other computers. Multiple DJs can now connect with each other and share the same tempo across systems-improving collaboration between artists.

M-Audio Torq Conectiv DJ System 1.5 software incorporates several highly anticipated new features that improve the user interface and provide new creative options. The Hide Mixer option conserves screen space by removing the mixer from the user interface and expanding the file browser window. The Browser Preview function lets you preview songs in your headphones before loading them into a deck. New file list categories such as "Year" and "Label" help with song organization-you can even hide and rearrange categories for improved searching through your database. Torq 1.5 also displays a warning message if you are exiting the program or loading a song onto a deck that's already playing-preventing accidental set interruption during a live performance.

In addition, many of Torq's preferences have been duplicated as small buttons in the redesigned toolbar. Commonly used features like External Control and AMPutate mode can now be enabled without opening the Preferences dialog. Sync mode, Schaffel mode and the new Skip Protection feature can also be changed on the fly. You can trigger all of these buttons with a compatible MIDI controller like M-Audio's Oxygen 8 v2 or Trigger Finger.

M-Audio Torq Conectiv DJ System 1.5 also includes new features designed to enhance the mixing process and give you complete control over your set. Skip Protection for external vinyl control keeps the music playing-even if the needle briefly jumps or skips off the record. True Key Lock keeps the pitch constant when you change speed using external turntable controls or the scratch wheels on Torq Xponent. The new Auto Gain feature compensates for volume differences in songs-smoothing out transitions between tracks with different levels. And the MIDI Soft Takeover feature prevents parameter jumps when using external controllers.

M-Audio Torq Conectiv DJ System 1.5 also includes a new beat-detection algorithm that analyzes tracks according to Musical Style Preferences. You can select from a long list of styles before analyzing songs-improving the reliability of results. If a song is analyzed improperly, simply change the musical style and re-analyze the track.

Torq revolutionized digital DJ performance and production by combining DJ software essentials with a broad assortment of cutting-edge effects. Torq 1.5 takes you even further with new features that improve effects processing and inspire creativity. The built-in effects can now be formed into Effects Chains, allowing more creative options than ever before. For example, you can take the output of a Delay and feed it into a Dual Filter and Reverb before mixing it back into the main outputs (great for dub-style swooshy delays).

M-Audio Torq Conectiv DJ System 1.5 also supports VST Tempo so external effects can be synchronized to the playing track. The innovative Snapshot feature now includes a powerful Swap function-allowing you to mirror your settings between decks. These advanced features help you create your own style, blurring the line between live DJ performance and advanced music production.

M-Audio Torq Conectiv DJ System 1.5 stands apart from other digital DJ solutions by delivering advanced looping tools for remixing and mashing up tracks on the fly. The new Pre-Loop feature allows you to loop a section of audio you just passed-using the QuickLoop buttons to capture loops ending at the current position. Smart Mode ensures that you capture loops of musical size. When the Quantize feature is activated, new Loops and Cue points will be added at the nearest 16th note.

Torq's QuickLoop buttons also have a new selectable behavior called Direct Mode, which mimics the behavior of DJ CD player loop buttons. Once a loop is created, the QuickLoop buttons become divisors of the loop length-pressing 2 will halve the current loop, while pressing 1 will return it to its original length.

A host of other innovative tools streamline the creative process and improve the user interface. For example, you can clear all effects by holding the shift key and clicking Bypass. It's also easy to unload tracks from a deck-just hold shift and press either F1 or F2. When beat-juggling between decks, Cue Points added to one track are immediately reflected in the other. And when using the browser in max view, you can drag and drop tracks onto the tiny decks located at the top of the screen-without returning to regular view first. With all of these enhancements, M-Audio Torq Conectiv DJ System 1.5 is more powerful and easier to use than ever before.

Torq gives you everything you need to DJ in a single, easy-to-use workspace. Torq includes an integrated two-channel mixer with three-band EQs, level controls, headphone cueing and a crossfader, just like a traditional DJ setup. Then the power of digital DJing kicks in. The program has two virtual decks where you can load, cue and mix digital files—including MP3, AIFF, WAV, WMA and AAC—and it will even automatically beat-match the files with the push of a button. Torq also organizes all of your digital files into an easily searchable database, letting you pull up the perfect track or change up your set in an instant. You can even access your entire iTunes library through Torq, so you can truly have all of your music at your fingertips.

The Conectiv USB interface delivers world-class M-Audio technology, outfitting your digital DJ rig with two pairs of RCA stereo inputs and outputs, microphone input and phono preamps. Two large knobs allow you to seamlessly mix between the incoming audio from a turntable or CD player and the output of a connected Mac or PC. Conectiv also includes standard DJ cueing capabilities, so you can listen to any track in your headphones before sending it out to the house system. And with a maximum output level of +10dBV, Conectiv gives you enough volume to go toe-to-toe with any DJ hardware on the market.

Torq supports the vast world of third-party VST effects plug-ins and allows you to create recallable snapshots of your favorite EQ, effect and mixer settings. You even get 10 exciting built-in effects right out of the box. Beyond using these effects on your digital files, you can use Torq Conectiv to turn a laptop into the most versatile DJ effects unit ever conceived for your vinyl and CDs. Imagine the possibilities of stacking multiple distortion, EQ, reverb, chorus or bit reduction effects and using the knobs on Conectiv to blend the dry and processed signals.

With Torq, you’re never limited to just basic beat-matching and crossfading between tracks. With a 16-cell, tempo-synced sampler, easy looping capabilities and multiple cue points, you can chop up a song—on the fly—and reorder, remix and extend any section you want, all while staying perfectly in time. The QuickScratch feature even lets you instantly scratch with any two loaded samples. With the option of adding multiple effects, you can turn a song into a completely original piece of music and even record it on the spot with the integrated performance recorder. And for the DAW-savvy DJ, you can route the output of Torq to any ReWire-compatible host application like Pro Tools M-Powered 7.3 or later and share synchronization information between the programs.

Torq lets you work the way you want to work. Rather than limiting you to DJing with just a mouse, Torq can also be controlled via keyboard or MIDI controller—like the X-Session Pro or Oxygen 8 v2. And with a compatible audio interface like the M-Audio Conectiv and M-Audio’s specially encoded Torq Control CDs or Torq Control Vinyl disks, you can control digital files loaded in Torq with the feel of a traditional DJ setup. Torq includes multiple operating modes that can make playback behave like a traditional turntable or a DJ CD player—and there is even a hybrid mode that blends the strengths of both vinyl and CD-style control.

While Torq and Conectiv are designed to work seamlessly together, Conectiv is also compatible with any Mac or PC software using CoreAudio and ASIO drivers—delivering low-latency performance as a recording interface for DAWs like Ableton Live, Logic, Cubase, Digital Performer and more. Of course, it’s also compatible with Pro Tools M-Powered 7.3 or later as your entrance into the world of industry-standard recording.
