What Makes the Midi FIghter 64 Special?

Authentic Japanese arcade buttons offer industry leading latency for ultra fast playback. Bright LEDs make it easy to create eye-popping light-shows. This looks and feels like nothing else.

ULTRA BRIGHT LEDS

The ultra bright LEDs are perfect for performance videos. Easily trigger pre-made LED animations with one touch, or customize each LED yourself for advanced light shows. This is the exact same model Shawn Wasabi uses.

PLAYS LIKE A DRUM

Playing a real drum kit just feels satisfying. Why? Real drums bounce back. Our buttons bounce back one full millimeter for ultra-fast playback, easy triplets & drum rolls. Offering industry-leading latency, this is the gold standard for finger drummers.

BUILT LIKE A TANK

These buttons were forged in hell: made for non-stop, 24/7 button-mashing in busy arcades. Rock-solid construction, buttons rated to last 5 million presses and zero moving parts mean one thing: the 64 can survive a serious beating

“I love these buttons so much, I don’t want to use anything else. I love the lights. I love how it feels. The arcade button is such a good button for playing things”

- SHAWN WASABI

What Makes the Midi FIghter 3D Special?

One of the most popular finger drumming and performance controllers around. Built like a tank to survive a beating on stage and in the studio. The 3D is equipped with world class arcade buttons that perform better than anything around.

Totally Unique 3D Control

The Midi-Fighter also includes a completely unique 3D controller set. You can map left, right, forward and back tilt to any parameter including FX, filters, or pitch. By combining a gyroscope, accelerometer, and compass we provide the smoothest, most accurate 3D control you can possibly imagine.

6 Side Buttons

Six hidden, but very functional buttons are built into the soft sides of every Midi Fighter. These can even be banked so their functionality changes depending which of the 4 banks is enabled. You can even map these to launch scenes in Ableton.

4 Bank Buttons

The four top buttons can provide 4 banks of arcade control or they can be directly mapped to your own settings. This feature and others are changed using the powerful MIDI editor.

"This is the only controller in our stage rig that never breaks. We tour with more than 10 at any given time."

- Joe Hahn, Linkin Park

I can get more precise timing out of this than other velocity-sensitive pad controllers."

- S.y , customer

"I've had my 3D for about a week now? I've had a great time with it so far in Ableton Live 9. If you even THINK you're the type who creates by playing then do yourself a favor and pick this up. It's simple enough get right into, but expressive enough to really cut loose with."

The Best Buttons

Authentic Japanese arcade buttons are the highest quality button in the world offering the lowest latency and highest durability around. These feel amazing and will never break. Why are they only in the MidiFighter? Because they are so expensive to use, and other controller companies focus purely on profit. We want to power performers and fill the world with music.

PLAYING WITH SOUNDPACKS

What is a soundpack?

A soundpack is a collection of samples that makes up a full song with only 16 buttons. This includes synths, build ups, risers, bass samples and drums.

Make Music From Anything

Rick Fresco created this soundpack from beer bottles.  He can then play the full song with only two hands and share it with everyone in a single click.

Easy To Get Started

If you can use a computer keyboard, you can finger drum. All you need is a computer, the Ableton live (free trial), and a 3D. Load thousands of pre-created sound packs and start playing your own versions of those songs instantly.

Midi Fighter Twister

The most playable knob controller around.

BUY MIDI FIGHTER Twister

What Makes the Midi FIghter TWISTER Special?

Each knob doubles as a super powerful button. Turn the encoders to control a parameter in any software and twist their built in buttons to quickly reset the knobs or turn effects on and off.  This means each knob is like 3 knobs.

Endless Flexibility

The heart of the Twister are the 16 "Endless Encoders". These are very powerful knobs that don't have a start or ending point. Instead the LED rings show you the position of the knob. This means that the controller and the software are always in sync, even when changing banks, racks or songs on the fly.

Deeply Customizable

The Twister allows for deep customization of every knob across all 4 banks with 5 killer features not found on any other controller. Change LED color, transform an encoder into a DJ filter, enable fine midi control, toggle a parameter on/off, or setup a "shift" knob so pressing a push-encoder activates control of a secondary function

Built For Producers

The Midi Fighter twister was designed with producers in mind. We need compact, reliable controllers that are easy to map to our DAW's. The endless encoders respond to the software so everything is always in sync, even when playing back recorded automation.
"I just bought the MF Twister (wondering why i waited for so long) and I really love it!"

- KiNK

"The Midi Fighter Twister is exactly what was missing from the world of CC based controllers. The push encoders are the perfect nexus of button and knob, cleverly programmable and designed with the level of quality and polish characteristic of DJ Tech Tools."

- Ill Gates

"The MF Twister has fast become my trusted go-to controller for encoders. It soars above  the competition in terms of quality, versatility, and portability. Everyone needs a good set of knobs, and the Twister delivers."

- Mad Zach

"The build quality is really solid. This thing is going to last me a while. I can actually really really get crazy with this and automate stuff using these knobs and I think this will last me years."

- ART FX

"How did I wait this long to get one? Unlreal. This is going to change how I play out. I may need another."

- Byron, customer

"I use it for everything now from controlling my effects to my soft synths. With four banks of precise rotaries and push buttons this is my new favorite. Being able to edit multiple controls in a bank also makes customizing a breeze..."

- Edward Munat, customer

Used By The Pro's

Combine The Twisters powerful knobs with a DAW template so that every time inspiration strikes, a powerful studio environment is there to support you. This is how the pro's do it - why wouldn't you?

5 Killer Midi Tricks

The knobs not only control your typical volume, pan and FX send controls but they also enable a host of quick access to deeper control - only available on the twister. For example, push the encoder to send out a fine resolution range and dial in the exact EQ setting you want. Release and return to normal range control.

Clear And Easy To Use

You need to be able to react to the dancefloor. Having a dedicated controller is just like being a practiced instrumentalist. Once you have a idea, you can just make it happen as soon the inspiration hits.
