You can use VST effects. There’s also a headphone jack with split cue facility that, rather irritatingly, isn’t addressable as a third stereo pair; and finally, a mic input. It should also be said that the track count is rather meagre — two channels of audio really isn’t a lot in this day and age. So, while Torq Conectiv is an interesting departure for M-Audio, it hasn’t yet fulfilled its potential. Much cheaper than comparable alternatives.

Beneath all of this is the obligatory browser window that helps you keep track of your tracks, and on the whole, it all works reasonably well.

The headphone feed, meanwhile, has a mix function so you can hear channel A or B, or a controlled mix of both. Now the final element of the package: It makes Conectiv far more versatile than your standard DJ interface.
