The 21st Century DJ

DJ-ing today is not like it once was. There was a time where a DJ would mix music using a vinyl deck scratching records. Turntables are still the most popular among delivery systems, but apart from a minority who still prefer the original vinyl, the turntable has become digital, a trend that is being seen everywhere in the music industry.

Today’s DJ will most likely use a completely digital interface, like the M-Audio Torq Xponent DJ system, which combines a digital controller with high-performance software. Most of these types of systems have controllers that can hook up to computers via a USB port or midi switch, or directly to speakers.

The controllers themselves are designed to look and operate like traditional DJ hardware, complete with wheels for scratching and pitch controls, and a plethora of assignable buttons that allow you to control every part of the music experience. Many also have headphone outputs to allow cueing.

Another advantage to buying systems such as these is the cost. With the Torq Xponent costing around ?350, it is significantly cheaper to purchase an all-in-one system than to buy it separately, sometimes saving the buyer thousands of dollars. They are also smaller and lighter than traditional DJ gear, making them a more popular solution for DJs that tend to travel a lot.

With the advance in digital technologies, today’s DJs can now make the transition from traditional DJ-ing to becoming a Digital DJ. They are now given the ability to combine computer software like Torq with DJ hardware like the Xponent to create the ultimate DJ experience.
