The player features 2 touch-sensitive scratch wheels, 2 100mm pitch adjustment controls, a built-in touchpad/assignable X/Y control surface, 8 assignable knobs for effects, and 64 assignable backlit buttons.
The Torq software features automatic beat-matching, integrated real-time stretching/compression of tracks, 16-cell, tempo-synced sampler, a performance recorder, instant looper, and vinyl, CDJ and hybrid emulation control modes. It’s Mac and PC compatible.
It will retail for around US$749.95 – availability details and UK pricing to be confirmed.
