M-Audio Torq Conectiv
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 ;-)

M-Audio Torq Conectiv
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).

M-Audio Torq Conectiv
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.

- How long have you use it?
I use it for 2 months

- What is the particular feature you like best and least?
I not sure how the interface is made ... Otherwise it rpond quickly plug in a second, it is stable. It allows you to mix MP3's staying on the vinyl, and the magic box can open set to go on a traditional vinyl.

- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
I wait not in fact always the rponse my quetions ask MIXVIBES ... so here goes ...

- How do you report qualitprix?
Stunning, from the concurrency is cheap and it works thunder, really amazing, a good compromise for trs irrductibles of vinyl (like me can not go on CD). It's faster to buy a CD player for MP3 that are more Chres this set.

- With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...
Yes yes yes, say that as soon as the purchase of a CD player and can stay in "touch vinyl" with numrique ... magic! (Yeah vinyl albums do not contain all the features that a ZIC cd ...). I waited a long time to spend on such Systm, lack of confidence. Even the customer service (and I speak only issue with their service because no problems with the gear or software) is at the top. I told them to ask lots of questions before you buy (for several months for that matter) and they always took the time and trouble to answer within a short time. APRS is the M-Audio, a guarantee of quality

This software and its interface rpondent compltement my expectations, the possibility can control all the midi learn is an asset indniable, Ractive Submitted, quality of the sound card only suitable.
Points on ngatifs, if any, they are really ngligeables from the software.

- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?

Yes I used MixVibes Pro for two years, without comment, and it is this use that made me realize that TORQ rpond compltement my expectations.

- How do you report qualitprix?

Indtronable, I wanted a reliable software, usable on the Mac with the midi learn, ractif and which do not eat tons of CPU resources not to mention the reliability of the house M-audio has a research and office devellopement worthy of the name
icing on the cake less than 300 euros sound card included! hsitez you still you??

M-Audio Torq Conectiv
- How long have you use it?
Only for 5 days, so it may be that I think will suffer variations over time

- What is so special that you like most and least?
+ + The quality of the Conectiv box, its simplicity and clarity + + function Snapshot (snapshot) of Torq that opens many new opportunities to mix, the sampler almost unlimited and assignable ...
- I was not completely convinced by the graphic design software, fortunately there is a possibility to change the appearance, though some skins are awful (the "psytranced" for example, is finally a matter of taste .. .), others are more simple and lighter than the original ...
- The lack of external power in the pack (it can still be used even if the case is powered by USB), USB cable a bit short
--- The inability to activate Torq without connecting the housing is not really a handicap but it's better to have a choice

- Have you tried many other models before buying it?
I've never tried this type of system before but I've had the opportunity to mix with Traktor computer (not satisfied at all) and DJ-1800 which is a simple but effective ...

- How would you rate the quality / price?
Less than 300 euros a pack vinyl + CD control, interface and software, I do not think there is an equivalent on the market, especially with this quality ...

- With experience, you do again this choice? ...
Well, I have little experience as I have said above, but for now I'm really not disappointed with this purchase!

M-Audio Torq Conectiv
Go the first time I give my opinion on a product to product but definitely worth the trouble to make the pub!

How long have you use it?

Around one month, I have the Connect over but they were out of stock vinyl timecode

What is so special that you like most and least?

No lag! foot total frankly. It raised the cell was based on the another part of the vinyl and ca live off again like a real vinyl.
I also like the possibility of past timecode vinyl classic, it's good for parties, no need for disconnection.
What I like least, you have to buy the adapter so that it works without a PC. In fact such qd in the evening my set is over after which the mix of classic vinyl chains, and Ben must leave my PC connected, and this context makes all the beers on my PC
Finally an adapter and the problem and solved.
The sound is really good, it's still not like the vinyl it's normal mp3 or wav file being played.
I tried with vinyl records to wav such and it's like you mix on vinyl.
I prefer the +: bring only one hard drive instead of 50 vinyl and vinyl to play possbilité found.

How would you rate the quality / price?

Quality / price ratio compared to frankly nikel products like Final Scratch ...

I think ... I ' Espree (I begin to get used to it and it's going pretty good)
