Torq Xponent with Traktor Pro 2

This mapping may not work with the latest version of Traktor.

The Torq Xponent was designed specifically for use with Torq DJ software (included) and we had the opportunity to get funky with Torq a few months ago and found it to be very cool and quite intuitive.  The Xponent controller translates the software flawlessly, has massive touch sensitive jog wheels, and a super clean layout with LED backlit, rubberized pads and buttons.  It is a medium sized compared to other controllers, and very lightweight with a durable plastic construction.  It is DC powered, with RCA main and booth outputs, MIDI in/out, with foot switch and expression pedal inputs.  It’s definitely a good looking controller that works well with both Torq and many other DJ software.
