Xponent is a professional-quality controller that has been tested under a wide variety of conditions. Despite our thorough testing,
Xponent can be used in nearly limitless situations and certain scenarios may result in unexpected performance. This section will
highlight some of the most common difficulties users may experience and provide tips to remedy these problems.
First and foremost, we recommend that you avoid connecting several USB devices to the same port on your computer. While USB
is a dependable protocol that is well suited for audio applications, it is important to remember that audio and multimedia applications
place considerable demands on your processor and the USB bus. Although it is theoretically possible to connect numerous devices
to one USB port, doing so may cause complications with your hardware and software.
If you have reduced your number of USB devices and continue to have trouble with Xponent, please check the
Verify that the Xponent drivers are properly installed.
In Windows XP, go to the control panel and double-click the System icon (under Performance and Maintenance if
you are in Category view).
Select the Hardware tab and click the Device Manager button.
Click the plus sign ("+") next to Sound, Video and Game Controllers, and locate the "M-Audio Xponent" listing. If
you see a question mark or exclamation point next to this listing, you may need to reinstall the driver software.
Make sure your DJ or audio application has been set up to use Xponent. Open your application's control panel and verify
that the software is configured to send and receive the MIDI data generated by the controller and to send audio streams
to Xponent.
Double-check that your USB and audio cables are properly plugged in and that the unit is receiving power.
If you are using a USB hub, try connecting Xponent directly to your computer.
If Xponent is properly controlling your DJ software, but you are hearing clicks, pops, or other problems while playing
Make sure your output levels are not too loud, as this can cause distortion and clipping.
Try increasing the buffer size of your audio interface. Larger buffer sizes will result in higher audio latencies, but will
improve system performance and resolve many clicking and popping issues. If you are using the audio outputs of
Xponent, refer to the "The Xponent Control Panel" section of this guide to learn how to change buffer sizes. If you are
using another audio interface with your DJ software, consult your audio interface's user guide for more information
about this.
Make sure all your audio cables are in good working order and are properly connected. Poor contacts, broken shielding,
and other cabling problems can cause a variety of issues including clicks and pops.
If you continue to have difficulties, refer to your audio application's user guide for additional help.
