It should also be said that the track count is rather meagre — two channels of audio really isn’t a lot in this day and age. Limited number of channels.
First of these is the aforementioned screen congestion, which gets even worse when you apply one of the fancy fascias on offer. There’s also a headphone jack with split cue facility that, rather irritatingly, isn’t addressable as a third stereo pair; and finally, a mic input.
You can use VST effects. Much cheaper than comparable alternatives.
The build quality is rugged enough, too, and the Conectiv is certainly small and light enough to fit into a laptop bag. Not the best time-code control available.
All the standard features are here: This does at least ensure seamless integration with the hardware interface, however, which is only designed to accommodate two stereo channels. Image 3 of 4. The most unusual feature on the front panel is a pair of knobs one for each channel that offer straight analogue blending between the audio interface outputs and the incoming signal. Speaking connedtiv Traktor, Torq’s layout will at least be familiar to anybody who’s used that application.
The headphone feed, meanwhile, has a mix function so you can hear channel A or B, or a controlled mix of both. But even here, the system falls down where FinalScratch succeeds, as it won’t let you address the headphone output as an extra stereo pair. So, while Torq Conectiv is an interesting departure for M-Audio, it hasn’t yet fulfilled its potential. Now the final element of the package: And if you aren’t planning to do any serious scratching, you have to wonder whether it’s worth bothering with the control discs at all.
Each of these is time-coded with a signal that conectiv Conectiv hardware transmits to the software, which then decodes it. Beneath all of this is the obligatory browser window that helps you keep track of your tracks, and on the whole, it all works reasonably well.

Speaking of the interface, known as Conectiv, it offers two sets of stereo ins and outs on DJ-friendly phono jacks including turntable-level inputs. Torq works with pretty much any type of audio file you throw at it it even scans your iTunes library on launch and the extras include a sampler, effects and the ability to address your plug-in effects folder.

Unfortunately, there are a few flaws. The idea is that you can control the audioo tracks in Torq almost exactly as you would vinyl or CDs. Installation is easy this is an M-Audio product, xudio allbut one look at the Torq software reveals a very cluttered interface. This has great potential for anybody who wants an interface to blend the audio signal from their Aucio and monitor an incoming signal directly without it going in and out of the machine and creating unwanted latency.
Of course, none of this would be worth a jot if the sound was no good, but fortunately, the quality is on a par with any of the other DJing products and just about passable for more general recording duties.

The inputs can be used either to channel audio into your machine Conectiv connctiv up as an connecriv interface in any audio application or to accept two channels of time-coded control data more on this shortly.
