M-Audio has announced it has begun shipment of the Torq Xponent integrated hardware/software DJ performance and production system, which brings traditional CD DJ-style control and mixing to the world of computer-based DJing. The Torq Xponent system delivers everything a professional DJ needs to perform with a computer and is both an advanced MIDI control surface for Torq DJ software and a 4-output USB audio interface, including two stereo RCA outputs and a standard 1/4-inch headphone output with cueing. Every control boasts rock-solid construction and its array of tactile controls enables DJs to perform a variety of tasks from a single surface, eliminating the need to adjust most onscreen parameters with a touchpad or keyboard.
M-Audio’s Torq DJ software for Mac and PC is designed to work seamlessly with Xponent. Every control is pre-mapped to its corresponding Torq function and all hardware controls are located exactly where DJs expect them to be, making Torq Xponent easy and intuitive from the first use. The transition into digital DJing could not be simpler.
