I use very little regularly since 2008. Before that I had bought the Hercules MK2 that I found too limited and I did not like Virtual DJ. I then bought the EKS XP10 with a mixer but this config did not suit me at all either and I finally found my happiness with the Xponent. This is a console rather well done, with a good touch and Torq software has found a second life with version 2.0. The Xponent community is composed of small but passionate. Mapping twelve o'clock fully configurable offers unlimited possibilities in terms of ergonomics and combos effects and encourages creativity. This is a very fun console that perfectly serves its role in the evenings alone or with friends!

J.Rambault's review (This content has been automatically translated from English) " Very good CHOX"

I use it for bientt 2 years.

Not before j'tait on CD decks, this is the first Controller I buy.

Plus: -Rtroclairage buttons
- Touch Pav assignable to-controlling the mouse and effects
- Touch sensitive jog wheels
The least I did not find ngatif points as this is the first I had Controller.

The qulitprix very good report and I think it is a good brand and a good Controller.

Yes, I think.

If you want I sell 250, they are in very good condition

looping.prod's review (This content has been automatically translated from English) " Multipurpose"

How long have you been using? I used about two years and then I went to the EKS OTUS of

Did you try many other models before buying it? I had a HERCULES MK2, but the properties was very limited

What is so special that you like most and least? Most is the all in one aspect and nomadic. We take the Xponent, the laptop and can mix!
More works beautifully with Torq is a virtual replica of the Xponent.
But it can not ordered any other software (try with Virtual DJ and Traktor)
Minimum: the jog wheels are too light, it lacks the heaviness of plateau Problem I can not find the OTUS ... That's it!

How do you rate the quality / price? I bought it used there are 2 or 3 years on ebay with 350 Euros Sony MDR V500 headphones, so a good deal at the time!

With experience, you do again this choice? No problem, but my skills are changing and I am now more focused HomeStudio

How long you use it?

For over a year

Did you tried many other models before buying it?

In just the digital U-Mix Control Mixvibes if the Pioneer CDJ 2000

What is so special that you love the most, least?

The "+"

- The super flow with the software provided: Torq

- The effects really great

- The tactile part to manage the effects and to serve as smiled at the computer

- The button backlight to mix in the dark

The "-"

- Aspect of the controller rather ugly ... (Plastic toy) but his is not the case at all

- The software is fairly ugly on the screen as well (Torq 1)

- The big lag on Torq 2. It's a shame it is prettier, has really intéréssente function over the first

- No button for sample ...

How would you rate the quality / price?

For what it is, it's a very good price

With experience, you do again this choice?

His YES!

How long have you use it?
I leave a session from 6 non stop, so it's a hot view

Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
Yes, I mix for 7 years, I started on vinyl stanton, then the MK2 and the CDJ-800, Denon DNS-1000, APC40, BCD-1000 in Personal stuff, and evening and box night I was able to mix on low prs everything turns, dns-3500, CDJ-1000 MK 2, 3 + DJM 600 / 800, even on a numark tlcomande lol

What is the particular feature you like best and least?
+ + + SIZE FADER! Finally a gear where you can REALLY numrique stalling ear when the software not recognize the tempo (which happens), it is the same size as on real turntables so it's cool
+ + + LE JOG! it is enough to balance balèze sounds by scratching (not to go to the DMC, right), and has the same mode as the Pioneers (eg: over a sratch, and the crown has bend), it is the top, I surprised even stalling sounds like j'tais on CDJ-1000
+ + The TORQ soft, it is well screwed. The graphical interface is not glamorous for a penny, for against it's 100% functional, simple and effective (at the same time it is done for the Controller, still happy LOL). Auto level setting, it often crashes, to use the sync feature, you often use the X2 before using the auto sync (the grid is correct but it's hard chopper kick of tracks). But ergonomics is gnial level, it mixes with the soft fluid
+ + There CONTRL all it takes to mix and remix live, hot cues, 4 FX, loops in out + size auto, 3-band EQ + kills, crossfader, in short, a nice little set 2 decks + mixing desk with FX ... it's just gnial
+ The LEDs on all CONTRL is cool and has good visibility in an announcement sional
+ The lightness of the Controller. It is plastoc, so it is lightweight. NICE carry. I have not yet made a crash test but the air is strong enough to respect its hardware
+ The effects will integrate super easy to mix

--- Either I have too big hands, or the CONTRL are too close together. They have to handle so much before we must be careful, a lot of times I touch the JOG playing with the FX.
- Leave to CONTRL much, much put a loop / loop 2 * 2, the last is not a real criticism I have not yet returned the soft 100%
- I'll AIM notches on the tempo fader. They have those of while a volume is nothing but not on the tempo, damages, could have allowed a stalling and mix without looking at the computer screen
- The equalizers, sound does not come naturally, and the gain knob is not used much. Wholesale mp3 is your master is out and nickel, or it is a little ghetto and we'll have to play with his master to keep a quanime. The more I may not be enough in FOUIN config software TORQ, but we feel the cot numrique of four, damage MAUDIO make good its cam Contents

How do you report qualitprix?
With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...
Report MAX quality price, for me who am more comfortable on turntables or CD, I must admit that the TORQ given me good feelings, I used the same routines as on CDJ. Perfect for the mobile DJ who wants to provide quality technical services to

How long have you use it?

1 year at home and in the evenings

Have you tried many other models before buying it?

A Hercules MK2, CDJ800 mkII, V7 Numark, Gemini CDM3700, Reloop DJ 2

What is so special that you like most and least?

Most
Platinum-level performance effects
Good-quality sound card
Jogs right-sized
-Lighting (what I like most)
Torq 1.5.2-Stable
An in-turie mix (with effects + VST)

The-
Aspect-too plastoc
-For those who have had a problem that only led to noon and 2 max of red light on the stage equalizer transformer too fragile (had to change it because it gets too hot and it did eventually give up the ghost) it can always of interest to you transformer DC12V 1000mA output
2.0-Torq totally unstable
Pc-muscled to run properly (4 Hearts and 8GB of RAM) and even sometimes the software saccade (a low but still negative) small crackles are heard, I will say it is the latency bah whatever I make it but hopefully its still not too recurrent.
Approximate self-timing, but I made manual
BPM-recognized by half compared to the normal on some music (force multiplied by 2 manual)
Pitch-sensitive too, but his view is a detail
-Master who blew up if too high (80% say it) but I never rises to over 70% of the max

How would you rate the quality / price?

I paid 400 I can say that at this level is reasonable

With experience, you do again this choice?

Quite sure that so wrong sandstone some flaws its still a great product that is anything but a toy, I would advise those who have the mix on smaller plates because it is simple but in the details as you can play the card of the technique and evening with the repeat among others you can do to sacred things. And I de-Torq 2.0 and counseling rather I recommend 1.5.2, but less stable quality level at least. If I have something to say to the team who created this great software, it is a shame that version 2.0 is unstable because it have a huge potential that I may compare to Serato.

Only hope the next one platinum metal and a little more to Torq 2.0 is his hair would be perfect.

I use it for over a year.

The "+"
- Supplied with software Torq very stable.
- Everything is customizable (you can set the frequency on which the act of knobs EQ Bass / Medium / Hi for example).
- MIDI Learn (a simple right click of a button the software and then a flick of the button on the console to be assigned and voila!).
- Complete Control (everything is manageable from the control surface or near: mix, loop, FX ... and contrary to what I've read the trackpad to use the mouse of his PC from the control surface works very well on my two laptops)
- Ease of use: everything is pretty intuitive I think.

The "-"
- The next "plastic" the control surface (From the MK2 Technics vinyl mix I always find it difficult to get used to the aspect of "toy" of the control surfaces, but hey it's better than what was done before in this price range).
- TORQ: the software is great, but it's not a pretty screen! But then the worst you can use the control surface with other apps (Virtual DJ, Tracktor ...)


Conclusion:
This is a great control surface for this price range. It allows you to mix easily with a small footprint.

For almost 2 years
Some other models
The controller is not a toy for rich kids, contrary to some opinions, especially that given the sale price is not really necessary to be rich:)
What I like least: TORQ
Version 1 does not crash certainly never, but I find the engine not good, the very poor sync see mostly unusable, even with a good computer. You hold your grid nikel and when you initiate the sync the two grids will stall with 2 millimeters of difference (?????)
I am not a computer but kador Traktor runs much better.
TORQ 2.0: Software very ambitious with a number of options very good and practical enough to use, but then this is the Bug Contest! MIDI mapping that loads a half that half the time, the sync offset by surprise in the middle of the set, record function that plant and using that while no two decks! I dare not even attempt it with 4.
C is a pity because the software might be great, we really want to get it to work but is frankly discouraging c! (No updates to fix bugs, zero answers .... Phantom of the VAS)
In short, I think frankly acquire a s4 instead because after one month of hacking the ds log preferences without any real success, c is sucks:)
