The M-Audio X-Session Pro USB MIDI controller is the easiest way to bring traditional DJ mixer-style control to the world of computer DJing and live performance. With a single USB connection, you get dedicated tactile controls for volume, pitch, EQ, cueing, transport and a crossfader. As a class-compliant USB MIDI controller, you can use it to control applications like Ableton Live, Traktor DJ Studio or any software that supports MIDI Learn, enabling you to bring DJ-inspired crossfades and filter sweeps into your live performances as well as studio.
Plays Well with Others
The X-Session Pro brings DJ mixer-style tactile control to any software that supports MIDI Learn. The unit is a class-compliant MIDI device under Mac OS X and Windows XP, so you'll never need extra drivers to make it interface with your favorite DJ applications, soft synths or DAWsâfrom Ableton Live and Traktor DJ Studio to Pro Tools M-Powered and more. For example, you can easily assign the crossfader on the X-Session Pro to the crossfader within Ableton Live and add a new dynamic to your live performances or studio work. With a digital DJ application like Traktor, you can assign the various level, EQ and crossfader controls to the X-Session Pro. The possibilities are virtually endless.
Built to Rock
Today's powerful laptop computers have brought near limitless options to DJs and performing electronic musicians. But the combination of a mouse and keyboard is not the most natural or musical interface for live performance. The X-Session Pro fuses the standard controls of a two-channel DJ mixer with the transport and pitch controls of a turntable or DJ CD player, enabling you to control everything from a single interface. The mixer controls allow you to adjust level, cueing and EQ, plus make smooth crossfadesâwhile the integrated transport and pitch controls allow you start, stop and beat-match digital files within software applications.

I use the unit as expansion for VDJ, I can control 4 decks with the XSession & Numark Mixtrack Pro.
Easy to map, responsive, lightweight.
plenty of knobs and sliders to assign as you need.
plastic but it does feel solid, sliders are just OK, but knobs seem real nice.
I got mine as the "Stupid Deal of the Day" $30 delivered to my house. Can't beat that with a baseball bat.
I bought this product because there is no other like it. No other mixer style midi controller is on the market for dj's unless it is in a complete dj controller package. I've been spinning elctro/house for awhile, and this miser tremendously aids to my mixes. I only gave a 4.0 on features, because there are no knobs for gain or 4th effects, which would have made more sense, because the full version of torq would take advantage of them. Other than that I have no complaints about this mixer. I learned how to mix and dj on it, and with an upgrade to the connectiv, Im on my way to be coming a pro.
Picked up the x-session pro as an inexpensive way to get feel for using Traktor Pro. Out of the box the mixer looks and feels a bit like a toy (all plastic). I'm not sure this could stand up to serious use over the long run. The knobs and faders are smooth and with solid channel faders and a smooth cross fader. But don't try anything too fast with the cross fader. The transport buttoms are so close to the fader that I frequently hit them with my knuckles when making quick cuts.The overall function of the mixer is good. Don't expect to do much other then basic mixing from this device. You will still be dependent on the mouse and keyboard controls to trigger effects, looping, and other controls. On the other hand the price is right if you need something basic and functional. If you need some more functionality, save your money.
This thing works the way I wanted to. I have a slight descrepancy of the software download for Torq LE. The seek forward/backward function seems kinda odd, since i can only move 1/16 step every press of the button. But the xsession is easily programmable for any software that uses MIDI control. I absolutely love this for doing simple digital dj stuff. 5 stars for the hardware, 2 stars for Torq LE.
This mixer is surprisingly versatile. I bought it to extend control of my DAW without any real interest in it as a DJ mixer. Much to my surprise not only is it a solid tool I use for production, but it's the perfect mixing interface if you're using a live performance-capable DAW like Ableton Live to do DJ sets. The fully-assignable knobs and faders let you do uniquely digital effects with a familiar mixing interface. Expect only what the product offers and you'll be quite pleased.
