SNAMM06: M-Audio Enter DJ Market with a Bang
The Torq software rocks

M-Audio and DJ’s are a New Thing and it looks like this particular pairing has resulted in one of the hottest items from this Summer NAMM. The new division is called Synchro Science with the first new hardware being Conectiv - a USB hardware audio interface that combines a pair of switch-able phono/line inputs and a pair of mic inputs aimed at the DJ setup. But the real jewel in the crown is the Torq DJ software. From what we saw at the demo – check the video out it’s awesome – it’s a very well thought out piece of software – designed by the man who brought us the Trigger Finger. The Torq software integrates with timecode vinyl and CD sources for absolute or relative control of MP3s and or samples in a number of cunning ways. With beat matching and sample playback, effects and a a great deal more. We recommend that you check out the excellent demo from Torq’s creator Chad. Prices, dates
Conectiv is expected to ship in August with an MSRP of $299.95 USD. Torq is included free with Conectiv and future SynchroScience products. Conectiv will also be sold as package including two control vinyl discs and two control CDs for an MSRP of $349.95 USD (Torq included). maudio_torq_screenshot.jpg
