Torq® 2.0 Tutorials - Traq Morph

Torq 2.0 is released and frankly I'm not impressed by the new features.
Can anybody tell me why some companies are using amateurs to showcase their software?

The video down below is a preview of the new (PATENT PENDING) Traq Morph mix effect from Torq. It simply sounds awefull. The only thing that actually might be cool to have is the filter option. A tip to all Traktor users: You can do this by some midi remapping allready, so don't go getting Torq quite yet. :)

One final comment about the video:
If your showing of a DJ software you might want to ATLEAST keep the tracks matched rhytmically. Listen to the final example. Awesome beatmixing skills! Three thumbs up.

DJ Techtools launch new store

The new store is pretty well directed to the different types of DJs out there. Segmented into Bedroom DJ, Club DJ, Touring DJ, Turntablist and Controllerist. Pretty neat profiling.
There are some small bugs with the image maps where you point the courser over the purple boxes next to the gear and get unit name and price, but that's probably fixed pretty soon.

Introducing the Midi Fighter Pro Controllers

Heavy duty and very precise unit that has one of the best features on the market: Super faders and Super combos.
It's got loads of space between the controllers, but I'm not very impressed by the box it comes in. It's a bit dull, so I'm hoping they can upgrade that soon... If not I might have to dismatle it and do some amendments on my own. The standard Midifighter looks way better, so I'm probably gonna wait just a bit longer before ordering one so they can get some to do some changes to the design or give us more options for the casing. Maybe they'll create an option for us to create a decal to put over it like the overlays for VCI-100 that they made. That would be awesome!
