Avid Unleashes Torq 2.0
Avid has finally unleashed Torq 2.0. A
way too long time in the making, the new version has been rebuilt from the ground up by Avid’s software development teams.
» Four virtual decks with EQ, level control, headphone cueing and crossfade
» Traq Morph technology: patent pending innovation blends music tracks in exciting new ways by intelligently applying audio effects during crossfade.
» Open, flexible workflows: provide DJs with the flexibility to use the software with M-Audio Xponent and Conectiv DJ and third-party hardware, or stand-alone without any hardware at all.
» Updated user interface and database: (still looks like the cluttered dash of a F-15 fighter jet —Ed.) gives users the ability to sort through tens of thousands of tracks, including Apple iTunes Store libraries, to quickly create distinctive mixes.
» 13 built-in effects and VST effect support: stack up to four simultaneous built-in effects and one VST effect per deck, allowing for up to 20 effects at once.
» Advanced recording options: empower DJs with the ability to capture their entire performance with an integrated performance recorder for distribution or editing. As a result of ReWire, they can also create, mix and record with Pro Tools or third-party DAWs, bringing their DJ performance to the studio environment.
Avid’s Torq 2.0 will set you back $250 beans. More information on Avid Torq 2.0.
