23. Level Meters – These LED meters are used to display the audio levels of the Master Output (2). These meters are
controlled by MIDI CC information generated by your music software and do not monitor the actual audio passing
through Master Output of the interface. This means that these meters will not illuminate if your DJ software does not
send out proper MIDI CC information to control these meters.
24. Deck Knobs – These knobs are used in conjunction with the Deck Buttons (25) to control Torq's effects. Viewed from
left to right, the first two knobs control the left (Send Amount) and right (Parameter) knobs for the first effect while the
third and forth knobs control the Send Amount and Parameter knobs for the second effect.
NOTE: The Bank Select Switch (41) must be set to the left position for the Deck Knobs to control the first two effects
as stated above. To control Torq's third and fourth (VST plugin) effects, slide the Bank Select switch to the right.
25. Deck Buttons
– These four toggle buttons are used in conjunction with the Deck knobs (24) to control Torq's
effects. Viewed from left to right, the first two buttons control the left (On/Off) and right (Parameter) buttons for the first
effect while the third and forth knobs control the On/Off and Parameter buttons for the second effect.
NOTE: The Bank Select Switch (41) must be set to the left position for the Deck Buttons to control the first two effects
as stated above. To control Torq's third and fourth (VST plugin) effects, slide the Bank Select switch to the right.
26. Pitch Bend/Nudge Buttons
adjustments to the playback speed of a song.
27. PFL Knob (Cue) – This knob controls the PFL knob within Torq and is used to select the audio source for the
headphones.
28. Phones Knob (Phones) – This knob adjusts the output of the Headphone output (40). Note that this is an analog knob
and does not generate any MIDI data.
29. Progress Meter – These meters illuminate from left to right to indicate how much of your song has elapsed. These
LEDs are controlled by MIDI CC data and rely on your host application to light up as a song progresses. These lights
may not illuminate if your application does not send out proper MIDI CC data.
30. Seek Buttons
Shift and press either button to jump to the beginning or end of the song.
31. User Buttons – These buttons control the following features within each Deck of Torq:
QuickCues (1, 2, 3, 4, 5) – These QuickCue buttons allow you to quickly jump to five points that you've pre-
assigned within each song. This lets you quickly jump to various sections of a song (i.e., the verses, chorus, etc.)
Refer to the Torq User Guide to learn how to set QuickCue points.
Offset Buttons (Right Arrow, Left Arrow) – Sometimes when mixing two songs together, you may find that the
beats are aligned with each other, yet the two songs are still out of phase (i.e., a kick drum on one deck lands with
the snare drum on the other deck). Pressing these buttons resolves this problem by shifting the current Deck's
playback position forward or backward by one beat-length (allowing the kick drums to land together on each deck).
Speed & Key Lock (Lock Button) – This button engages and disengages the time-compression and time-
expansion functionality within Torq. When the Lock button is on, the pitch and speed of the song are locked
together (Torq's time-stretching is therefore turned off). In this mode, if you slow down the song, the pitch will also
drop just like when you're using a traditional vinyl record. When the Lock button is off, the Speed Slider (32) allows
you to change the speed of a song without affecting its pitch. Alternatively, the + and – buttons (see below) allow
you to change the key of a song without affecting the tempo.
Key Transpose (+, -) – These buttons allow you to transpose the music in each deck in semitone steps. In other
words, to raise the pitch of a song two semitones, press the + button twice. Note that this feature is only available
when the Lock Button (above) is disengaged.
