M-Audio Torq Conectiv DJ Performance/Production System

Torq Conectiv—including the revolutionary Torq DJ software and Conectiv bus-powered 4 x 4 USB audio interface—is 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 cue, beat-match and mix digital files with ease. Use it as a completely digital solution or process your vinyl and CDs on the fly through the built-in effects. You can also create a hybrid digital/vinyl DJ rig with specially encoded Torq Control CDs and Torq Control Vinyl disks. 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.
