Product Description

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.

Designed for Real-time Performance

M-Audio's new SynchroScience product development group is all about providing DJs with the tools they need -- as evidenced by the portable and powerful Conectiv interface. With 2 pairs of stereo inputs and outputs, easy USB connectivity and included Torq DJ software, Conectiv can turn any compatible Mac or PC into a powerful DJ rig. The 2 large knobs allow you to seamlessly mix between the incoming audio from a turntable or CD player with 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.

Download All Day, Party All Night

The included Torq DJ software is a dual-platform application that allows you to mix, beat-match and cue a variety of digital audio file formats, including MP3, AIFF, WAV, WMA and AAC. The first time you boot up the software, it automatically configures itself to work with Conectiv. Furthermore, the software itself can be controlled 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 organizes all of your digital files into a quickly searchable database on a compact, convenient hard disk -- it can even interface directly with your iTunes library for truly effortless setup. And if that's not enough, Torq supports third-party VST effect plug-ins and includes both a dedicated 16-cell sampler and performance recorder.

The Ultimate DJ Effects Unit

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.

Go Hybrid

Are you eager to embrace the world of computer-based DJing, but not ready to give up the feel of your favorite turntable or CD player? Not a problem. Simply break out a pair of control vinyl discs or CDs, and spin digital files loaded in Torq using a traditional DJ setup. And unlike most'more expensive'digital vinyl systems, Conectiv is also compatible with other third-party DJ and DAW applications -- you can even use it as an audio interface for Pro Tools M-Powered.

Crank It All the Way

While laptop systems have long offered conveniences like portability, unique effects, world-class editing options and instant access to downloadable music, many of these devices don't deliver the same output volume as traditional DJ products. Conectiv changes all of that. With a maximum output level of +2dBV, Conectiv gives you more volume than you need and can go to toe-to-toe with any DJ product on the market.

Top-Quality Recording

M-Audio interfaces are known for their recording quality and Conectiv is no exception. With switchable RCA phono/line level inputs and 1/4 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.

Features:

- 4 x 4 USB 1.1 audio interface with 16-bit/48kHz fidelity
- 4 RCA inputs configurable for line-level or phono signals
- 4 RCA line outputs with + 10dBV peak output level
- 2 mix knobs for blending between the audio input and computer output

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (44 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Torq, more Bang for your Buck!"
Sound: Sounds as good as any other on the market Ease of Use: just plug your turntable or cd player into the connective input, and return the output into your mixer and your done. Quality: The plastic is kinda cheezy but its durable. Simple design, no thrills. Value: Definitly worth the price, Other software is really over rated and over priced. Manufacturer Support: The online forum is good, never had a big enough problem to contact m-audio. The Wow Factor: Torq is beyond practical use, It is a great DJ software for beginner, advance and professional DJ's. I would like to see a redesign in the gui and skins. But as far as the extras such as the 16 sample bank, the effects, and other hot tricks you can do with Torq that Serato is finally trying to do now, Torq gives you more bang for your buck Overall: I'm a satisfied Torq DJ, I own Connective and the Xponent. If I want change I simply open virtual dj with my Xponent and ride out.
