From the makers of Pro Tools, DJ performance software with 4-full featured decks and more.
Torq 2.0 DJ software takes you beyond beatmatching and into the future of DJ performance and realtime production. Don't just spin tracks—reinvent them. Take advantage of all four decks to create unique, complex, and dynamic mixes. Develop your own sound using high-quality, innovative effects and a powerful built-in sampler. Go beyond crossfading by transitioning between tracks in exciting new ways using the innovative new Traq Morph feature. You can easily integrate Torq 2.0 with turntables, CD decks, and a variety of popular DJ controllers—or run the software on its own. Designed for rock-solid stability and peak performance, Torq 2.0 gives you unlimited ways to create your own sound on the dance floor, in the studio, and beyond.
Unlimited Mixing Possibilities
With Torq software, automatic beat detection and synchronization are just the beginning. Four full-featured decks—each with EQ, level control, headphone cueing, and crossfade—give you the power to build complex mixes and experiment in brand-new ways. Use the decks to prepare tracks during your set, then drop them into the mix and create dense, layered soundscapes. Tempo Anchors remove tempo variations from your tracks—or make other songs adopt the tempo changes—so you can easily blend older styles of music (such as classic funk and soul) with new ones. The zplane élastique time stretching algorithm performs extreme audio warping with exceptional precision and sonic quality—allowing you to keep your entire mix perfectly in key.
Traq Morph—The Crossfader's Second Coming
Torq software's Traq Morph feature is one of the biggest innovations in fading since the crossfader itself. It allows you to perform exciting transitions that would otherwise be impossible—short of having six hands and a rack of studio gear. Select between four flavors—Cut, Filter, Duck, and Morph—and Torq intelligently applies effects as you fade between songs. Use Filter mode to cut the bass out of Track A while introducing the bass of Track B as you move the crossfader, creating seamless transitions. Select Duck mode to introduce electro house-style ducking as you fade. Enable Cut mode to rhythmically cut back and forth between tracks in the mix. Or choose the Morph setting and hear Torq mix your audio sources in radical ways. Traq Morph takes you beyond the basic crossfades of yesterday and delivers exciting new transitions that will leave the crowd begging for more.
Live Remix Machine
Torq revolutionized digital DJ performance and production by combining DJ software essentials with a variety of cutting-edge features. Torq 2.0 goes even deeper with high-quality new effects and up to four simultaneous effect inserts per deck. But it doesn't stop there—VST support means you can manipulate your sound with any of the countless VST effects on the market. Each deck supports four simultaneous built-in effects and one VST effect—for a total of 20 effects at once—so you can completely reinvent your sound night after night. Torq also delivers a host of advanced looping tools for remixing and mashing up tracks on the fly—including QuickLoop buttons, Pre-Loop functionality for capturing a section you just passed, and Smart Mode for capturing loops of musical size. The 18-cell, tempo-synced sampler makes it easy to add loops, samples, and other audio to their mix. Torq 2.0 even comes with 100MB of free, ready-made loops to get you started.
Intuitive, Stable Operation
The engineering team behind Avid's award-winning Pro Tools virtual instruments and effects applied their expertise to rebuild Torq 2.0 software from the ground up. The result is rock-solid reliability, enhanced usability, and a fresh look. The new Setup Wizard makes it easy to configure compatible hardware, import music libraries, and access sophisticated workflows. The updated Browser and database provide immediate access to your entire music library—even when you've got tens of thousands of songs. And of course, ultra-stable operation means you can rock the party all night long.
Customize Your DJ Rig
Do you already own a Numark NS7, Vestax VCI-300, or other popular DJ controller? Adding Torq 2.0 software to the mix opens up a whole new world of creative possibilities. Of course, Torq 2.0 also provides compatibility with the M-Audio Xponent control surface for the ultimate hands-on experience.
For those who prefer the feel of traditional gear, Torq 2.0 supports vinyl and CD control out of the box—all you need are your favorite turntables or DJ CD players, a compatible audio interface, and a pair of Torq Control Vinyl or CDs (sold separately). So dive right in and build a rig that's as unique as your sound.
Audio Production Centerpiece
On stage and in the studio, Torq provides the ideal centerpiece for your audio production setup. Want to hook up your outboard gear? Torq can send and receive MIDI beat clock, allowing total synchronization with drum machines, effects boxes, and other computers. ReWire support and an 18-cell sampler let you bring powerful studio processing to your live sets, as well as infuse your studio productions with live energy. Torq is also ReWire-compatible with Pro Tools M-Powered software, Ableton Live, and other popular applications, forever blurring the lines between performer and producer.
