M-Audio Torq Xponent : NfDG's user review
« Well thought! »
-For how long have you been using it?
it's been two months since I use it.
-Did you try many other models before getting this one?
I tried the Numark Total Control with CUE LE and Traktor I used 2 and 3 with my Evolution UC-16 (not comparable!)
"What is so special that you like best?
offering complete software / controller, jogs along the top of the surface, lots of controls for direct access, the software is comprehensive and configurable wish if you take the time to read the manual.
"What is so special that you like least?
the touch of a little plastic buttons and knobs. but it is really to put a negative point because it's still good since I bought mine used, it is in a nickel and that the former owner used it ( and not just in front of his PC in his living room ...).
-What is your opinion about the value for the price?
for the price I paid for mine, it's unbeatable. or the price it was when it debuted, it seemed to correct the view of the proposed offer by m-audio software + surface (and not LE version) for a fee of around € 650.
-Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice?
having reflected long and hard before I decide, yes, I would do this choice.
I put a 9 / 10 because perfection does not exist!
but this surface is very pleasant to use, intuitive software so I'm having a little crazy! I mix of electro, breakbeat, drum n 'bass, the hardtek, a little hardcore, and my songs and it is also very nice!
I also used the Xponent on the PC of a friend who has no audio interface, we synchronized the Xponent with Ableton Live audio interface side (on pc) and my Profire 610 (of mine) in noon and it worked without problem. Of course, my buddy used the hand controller to control Live, and nickel also!
it fails to be a little korg NANOPAD to run the samples, it would take less space than my axiom 49 in the bag ...
