Recok's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" A good outsider"

M-Audio Torq Xponent
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!

kerrysixela's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" A good compromise"

M-Audio Torq Xponent
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

Sylvain.H's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Good control surface"

M-Audio Torq Xponent
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?

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)

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.

djftc's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Well"

M-Audio Torq Xponent
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 ...)

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

BDJ ANIMATION's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" YES but ..."

M-Audio Torq Xponent
Used since March 2009.
The most complete control surfaces "virtual".
Like its many features.
I like her look a little less toy.
I have a problem with frequent providers cons: microbreaks electrical plate that stops the full set when I push too hard master ...
Despite that, it's a bargain!


seblew's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

M-Audio Torq Xponent
I use it for 6 months. It is really good, the effect is nickel.

This is my first controller! Before I was on mk2 with a DJM 600 and more space with the arrival of children to keep this stuff and tired of ruining myself in vinyl.

The pitch cata! Too sensitive! Well, with the percevérence it gets there! We must all just patting légerment. Mix with button automatic m'inetresse do too much, it's too easy to be a lot more fun to mix or even when we hold.

value for money is very good, you perform a system at low cost. This is not to dob

I pence, yes! I board no experience on the other controller, but I just make sure if xpondent had a pitch of ca MK2 would the ball! M-Audio Damage have bungled this point.

baloche's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

M-Audio Torq Xponent
I use it for 2 months and it's ball; creativity free mix thoroughly. and no it is not a toy.

Anonymous 's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

M-Audio Torq Xponent
- How long have you use it?
For four months, and with version 1.5 for 2 weeks. about 100 hours of mixing it.

- What is so special that you like most and least?
+ The number of buttons all easily configurable.
+ Its precision timing, if it shifts alone is not the Torq is the file that is saved is not wrong to be on.
+ The auto registration in scratch - excellent
+ No latency
+ Ease of setting buttons, a simple right click of the mouse
+ Mouse built on the console, ultra-convenient.
+ The latest version afternoon with a terrible and, be it in master and slave, no problem, just set it up right in the same mix without restarting anything, it works nikel
+ The correct price for this material, and highly interesting for what they do in some technical term.
+ The updates of Torq, regular and keen to fix bugs, now I have none.
+ The size of the machine, enters a fly from mk2 example.
+ The effects are very significant, stacking up to three and very practical.
+ Illuminated buttons very beautiful and very distinctive.
+ Software stability

- The buttons that do not look very strong in time (a PROFESSIONAL version of the Xponent with more robust knobs would be very interesting to me kit to pay a little more)
- The left button of the mouse clickable part 2 which I already played around, I'm not a fan at all)
- The desire to have the opportunity in the software to add an effect or more than 2 to select racks effect. But hey you just do without.
- The gray top plastoc not just stylish than the rest, and gives a little play with the frame (I expect a pro version) with solid metal plate.
- The requirement to use the mouse to load a sound by dragging a shortcut button to load each drive would have been perfect.
- No dust cover for faders.
- Have you tried many other models before buying it?
In its category, Hercules pro, vestax, with the software virtual dj and traktor.
On all the points wins the Xponent for my use. If not global dj gear not bad at all, 6 turntables, a packet of table, and the cd player cdj dnd 9000 or 1000 drive all the little musty.

- How would you rate the quality / price?
Excellent value for money, it is undeniable, however, I look forward to a more pro in terms of build quality, namely a metal plate with button more solid at vestax and send / return on Auxiliary assignable 2 slices (in my case I would be very helpful) But hey let's be clear for that price it's great stuff and I use it now to mix in club

- With experience, you do again this choice? ...
At that yes I even thought of outright purchase another 4 to mix sounds.

fabloom's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

M-Audio Torq Xponent

- How long have you use it?

Now I use it for three solid months, which allows me to have a step back and be able to give good points or bad ...

- What is so special that you like best?

-That the Xponent is ventilate and rather then one can mix comfortably
It is also the interface of each button corresponds to a function of the program TORQ
-The fact that we can save wav mixes that you do and then rework them on other programs, this type of product we can move closer to production than simple mixing.
-The fact that we can use the 16 sample banks to add its little jingles or sound effects or mixes his work more.

- What is so special that you like the least?

- The fact that you only install TORQ and the user manual is very succinct
- The fact that M-Audio makes the death and does not respond even on the Torq forum French for help
- Whether to use fully the bank sampler he will need another audio interface M (see ben)
- In order to open Torq Xponent you must connect, not practical if you wanted to make a play list to the onions in the travel time ...

- Have you tried many other models before buying it?
the vestax (vci 100) in MHD
the numark (IDJ2) in MHD
the cortex (HDDT 5000) in France projector
the pioneer (CDJ400) in France projector

- How would you rate the quality / price?

Ben saw the possibilities of the beast and the price I think the price quality ratio is rather good

- With experience, you do again this choice? ...

yes without hesitation even though I have galleries on installation

plus I had fun to do a little research to transport the baby:
My little research:

In fact by comparing the ratings of the Xponent with a table of 19 standard mixes "I realized that by making a small change on a semi-rigid rack GATOR we obtain a hybrid of the fly that you are too ugly and the album cover to labtop that does not protect enough!




as an image is causing more ....

wholesale outside'm thinking about a pocket in which labtop has a frame to avoid shocks in it ... I can put the Xponent and also to put the laptop ....

caulking with foam wedge the history of many MIDI controller ...

below and on the sides and bottom and it gives us this: they did not move

if I add that I have a place to put the cables that go well and the transformer, you can just close the bin with padlocks I think for 45 or 50 euros it's worth, the Xponent is well security, more than a cell phone bag anyway ... : Wink:

to carry the laptop and the Xponent rather take the fly in three U instead of two like mine ...
