M-AUDIO CONECTIV AND TORQ DJ SOFTWARE
Conectiv, developed by M-Audio's SynchroScience division, is the world's first bus-powered 4 x 4 USB audio interface designed for DJs who perform and produce tracks with a laptop. Together, Conectiv and the included Torq software form the ultimate DJ tool?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 them as a completely digital solution and leave the heavy stacks of vinyl or bulky wallets of CDs at home?or process your vinyl and CDs on the fly. You can even create a hybrid digital/vinyl DJ rig by using Conectiv and Torq with specially encoded control vinyl discs or CDs. Torq supports popular formats such as MP3, WAV, WMA and AAC files and is configured to automatically work with Conectiv?no messy set-ups. And unlike most digital DJ systems, Conectiv works with other third-party software as well.
For the DJ who chooses to work with vinyl or CDs, Conectiv can turn a laptop into the most versatile DJ effects unit ever conceived. By routing the output of a connected turntable or CD player into a program like Torq or Ableton Live, you can process your tracks with tons of plug-in effects. 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. And by using industry-standard CoreAudio and ASIO drivers, Conectiv delivers low-latency operation on both Mac and PC.
M-Audio interfaces are known for their recording quality and Conectiv is no exception. With switchable RCA phono/line level inputs and " mic input, you can easily record a wide variety of sources with most DAW software titles, including Pro Tools M-Powered, Ableton Live, Logic, Cubase, Digital Performer and more.
Torq DJ software, developed by M-Audio's SynchroScience division, is a dual-platform application that allows you to cue, beat-match and mix a variety of digital audio file formats, including MP3, AIFF, WAV, WMA and AAC. Included with all M-Audio SynchroScience products*, this easy-to-use application automatically configures itself to work with compatible hardware the very first time you boot it up. You can access the power of Torq via mouse, keyboard, MIDI controller or control vinyl/CDs. And unlike traditional DJ set-ups where you?re forced to carry around heavy crates of records or CDs, Torq uses the digital files on your computer's hard drive and provides access to them through a quickly searchable database?it can even interface directly with your iTunes library for truly effortless setup. As if that's not enough, Torq supports third-party VST effect plug-ins and includes both a dedicated 16-cell sampler and performance recorder.
