I have for some years, at first it worked, but it did not take long to messing around driver problems not stable it seems ...

When you test the 4 pc on different and the final four on messing it ends ... there is something to lose hope

I stopped using it, this sound card not reliable

When I bought Connectivity native sound card audio output 4 is after a few months, to choose I would have taken four audio without hesitation!

* For how long have you been using it?

a little less than a year.

Did you try many other models before getting this one?

no, no I foolishly believed that m-audio was good products ...

What thing do you like most/least about it?

as of course it can scratch the sound you want. AC makes its effect by introducing small concert.

Least: torq software comes with is just horrible. it has a lot of unnecessary features. it is imperative for the Conectiv walk. Absolute mode is very rough. system stability is horrible. I do not like doing together and have our fingers crossed ... drivers for recent bones do not work super (Windows Seven sound and it sounds like that ...) it distorts the sound, it's a scandal! on the support site of m-audio nothing is done to help. support is zero guys have no solution. there are only sherman on torq forum that can help.

What is your opinion about the value for the price?

no ... M-Audio has done a good bof bof like the MicroTrack. So even at 200 € cd vinyl pack is too expensive.

Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? ...

probably not and my trust in m-audio is not great. what I regret most is that m-audio is still selling a product they no longer follow and which they do not bother to make the proper drivers ...

Notice to potential buyers: even if it is more expensive, test the competitors.

M-Audio Torq drop ship (the last official post was in March 2009) also Mac users still have no official driver for torq connectiv / AE (I mean the driver is in the 10.6.2 beta for nearly 8 months and nothing gets done) some users have come to the point of leaving their mac version 10.5.8 to use the official driver (not beta 10.6.x).

M audio crazy world he abandoned the project torq (no communication since 1.5.2) there have been dropped by the concurence (even mixvibes went before them! While it has avoided a soft front).

Serato or Traktor you buy something more professional if vouscompte finally play somewhere other than in your room is otherwise in case torq is a good product (no need for stability in the bedroom or a nickel or a midday advanced) and value for money is worth (although scratch duo does not cost so much more expensive and there is a real development team behind).

I had connectiv for 1 ½ years I have had nothing but M *** on XP as well as in snow leopard (naive I thought that changing the operating system it would go better but the problem c ' torq is in itself and devellopppeur that do nothing).

Flick of a client geule insatifsfait I recommending torq has informed me she wanted to have all we all go in the concurence (for traktor serato for some else) and it was fun to play again.

TORQ Disgusted with DVS:

1) Making permanent head casi we came even have a plug in our laptop on a wiggler to be sure everything is stable in the evening.

2) No changes for over a year (March 2009).

3) Not strictly speaking a noon (midi learn riduculement configurable).

4) Its rot (attenuated because of the equalizer and the torq soundcard).

5) Library manageable only in itunes.

6) Dropped by competitors on all points.

Do not make the stupidity of buying TORQ! (You turn to the other and at worst save dvs does not crack because you will regret it).

I find this simple and effective, I use it to mix on vinyl electro, tech house, minimal techno ... I spend vinyl timecode vinyl free normal bp. It responds perfectly to the sensitivity of the vinyl .. then I do not know the software using internal controls. Plus it uses only 2 votes out of a mixer is connectivism and allowing with 2 wheels to move from vinyl to vinyl Timecoded normal .. that's really cool :-) . Without having tried the other software I am very glad that the, good value for money. Enjoy!

Ps: Before purchasing this software as your computer is looking rather "powerful" to run it ;-)

How long have you use it?
For about a year. I use it with 2 Numark CDX and sometimes with two Techniks MK2.

What is so special that you like most and least?
Goodies: already the price (I bought it used a friend's nine but even cheap). The software interface simple and intuitive, I was not very nice and I did not like the skin of origin, then I found a site for personalized so the negative becomes positive. The visual mp3 (the form of sound) is great practice, and we can see that some even put it in full screen, the inconveniant is that we ended up not being able to do without ... The ability to insert VST effects (in addition to classic effects already present). The sampler (even if some default). The ability to assign a single button click. In terms of housing, the fact that it uses only one input on the mixing desk is super convenient, notement when only two track and four decks (cd and vinyl). To scratch, mix or pass pass, it remains stalled, do not worry, even when it's not bad technique. I use it on one side in relative mode since I have a CDX with its optical death (she jumps for no reason) and no problem, have the mp3 its course without flinching ...

Cons: The files created for each TQD mp3, p'tit is a detail that can be annoying but at the same time keeps the loop and cue point in memory, even if you move the file. The sampler, which comes out on a track (your choice), not practical, a third output would have been welcome, or use the headphone output of the box (an idea that comes here). The failure to open the log without the box, even with another M-Audio sound card, it would have been handy to have at least one platinum usable history to prepare the same set without the box. The fact that we can not use with 3 turntables, but there is a problem for all software box, even if the sampler is more I find ...

Have you tried many other models before buying it?
I esseyer the Serato, and other software (without housing) as Traktor, Virtual DJ and MixVibes. On Serato interface I did not like at all, and the side "mac" either (no right click). The other software is pretty complicated at interface, except that I found Virtual super intuitive, but less complete than Torq. Torq with all the best "complexity / intituivité" if we just say ... As for the box Connect, which can make gadget at video but in the end is much more practical than you spell that Serato 6 RCA cable for two turntables ...

How would you rate the quality / price?
Excellent. In the box where I work they buy Serato, but even if it is more expensive, I preferred to stay on the Conectiv. I had a bug with the version (with external hard drive crash, crash during loading double + double reading), but since the version 1.07 more concern, with heavy use every night, so value for money nothing to say. Especially with the Serato I had some concern ...

With experience, you do again this choice?
Without hesitation. Even now with the arrival of cheaper competitors. M-Audio quality is there, and update are square (although the scope of the pay version 1.5 is a bit hard to swallow).

I bought this pack there are approximately one week and I am totally satisfied. I mix on vinyl about 8 years and the result is impeccable.

I hesitated a long time with the pack MK2 mixvibes but since their site was having problems and it was impossible to download the latest drivers for the sound card I decided to try an adventure with M-Audio. Also I had the opportunity to test the Torq Xponent (M-Audio) and store the result convinced me.

I was impressed with the responsiveness of the product. The sound quality is good (it was not even a grain vinyl but it's very correct) and very low latency. The Torq software is very comprehensive and can do whatever you want super easy: Loops, effects, ...

I mostly mix of techno, electro, house and drum 'n bass and it really nickel.
Small precision all the same, the sound of the scratch is very good although slightly different from a real vinyl (I tested the difference between a real vinyl and MP3 version). I think it's the only small weak point in Torq.
Maybe for someone who only scratch it can be a bit annoying but the difference is minimal and then you can always put an instrument on one side with Torq and your preferred vinyl Octo Beat the other :-)
Value for money nickel, I got it new for just over € 200 in nuloop.com.
I would definitely do it again this election!

I recommend it to all, I think the quality is very close to the most expensive solutions (Final Scratch or Serato) and the price difference is not justified.

Last thing, I just installed the system on an old laptop that I was not sure what to do (P4 2Ghz with only 256MB of ram). The system is blank (Windows XP SP2 freshly installed) by installing and Torq Connect and many things go like clockwork. The display although some slowdowns at times but the sound never moves!
Only 180Mo of memory used in the open mix with effects enabled and latency to 256 samples (I think it is less than 10ms). It also runs smoothly at 128 samples but it is never too careful.

Hello all,

APRS 6 months of use, here is an update on the good and bad points Torq Conectiv +.
At installation, not rocket science, you just need the config paramtrer Torq, with a minimum of technical language English, spent alone.
He had to wait 2 months APRS buying a new PC with Vista for M audio shall decide finally to provide a soft compatible. UNACCEPTABLE.
Here is my opinion regarding the mix hip hop and electronic:
HIP HOP: Not too much latency for all that is scratch "core" samples INSERR scratches back almost to the same standard as on vinyl, but as CRAZE DJ Q-Bert or feel the diff ence my opinion ....
However, for the pass and beat jugglin pass', a Mac or PC really on top, and the plates and cells are essential. For my part, on the basis of two cells and SL1200 mk2 ortonfon consistent silver, is made just for Pass Pass (and again ...), but the insert is made of scratch without problem. I should receive DIGITACK, I will change my opinion if necessary (apparently it's the ball). Be careful and clean your vinyl timecodsrgulirement cells and during your sets (especially cells), where you will have surprises!

ELECTRO: It's like real vinyl, but better. The act of asking to see a CUE on the breaks of the songs leaves much room the Fast Fashion. If we use in addition to the sampler, a given really.
The ratio quality price is okay for now, until falling prices firewire card ...
I soon reois an AKAI MPD 24, j'mettrais a new opinion on the use of a Controller with USB TORQ now l.

- How long have you use it?
I did not keep very long and it was version 1.0.4

- What is so special that you like most and least?
What I liked from the beginning it was all assignments (fx, sampler) to the beat of a very simple way. What I like least is the sound quality both in terms of the card's software. Even with the sound FA66 remained poor and on other soft Connectivity was not better. The problem is located on two sides: hard / soft.

- Have you tried many other models before buying it?
I had (and still have) a lot of soft: PCDJ Red, DVS & Mixvibes Pro 6, Traktor 3, SSL, I change very often system. I will definitely take PCDJ Reflex soon as it is available.

- How would you rate the quality / price?
Considering the price, it can not repprocher sound, so the price / quality ratio is correct: one for money, not more ...

- With experience, you do again this choice? ...
No, unless the audio engine is seriously revised to use the cards better than the Connect. Yet even at the spectrum analyzer I see no difference, but to listen to some tracks, it's very bland at the bass and midrange / treble seem draft: inexplicable ...

I use Torq for 2 months dja, even if it is to me a lot more beginners, with its innovative features, now it is no longer the case. Before I mixvibes DVS with enough low-end card (ESI Maya 44 pci) and I think his level mixvibes Exceeds widely Torq with the same Maya 44, especially the scratch o mixvibes a more resembling the grain of the vinyl. During the power to scratch I think Torq is too flat. But I put him 6 / 10 same as when it is a good software that I strongly advise to mix house techno electro orient more, but for the scratch mixvibes is far better. And I speak not of Torq sampler is an option trs useless because it has not its own output when Torq timecode vinyls with.
