Pretty neat

Very cool piece of kit. I bought it to learn finger drumming and it feels really good on top of it being a very good price. If you're looking for something solely for production, I might look elsewhere, but for those looking for a plug and play midi controller, this is very solid. I do have to admit, however, that learning how to finger drum on top of learning the software is a kind of steep learning curve, but I'm having a blast.

  • What do you use your Midi Fighter Twister for? Other

The Knob bank to beat

I'm a dialogue mixer for practically anything that needs it. Three MFT units now sit here on my desk, letting me control EQs, send levels and various effect plugins. Coloured LED lighting, chroma caps, a very decent editor for customization but also the feel and precision of the knobs themselves let this unit stand above the rest for me. I use these with Reaper, firing bank change commands at the MFTs via scripts. Features I'd want ? More banks. The LED lighting makes it easy to tell banks apart, so another 2 or 4 banks would be very welcome. An editor that can address more than one unit at a time(has that changed?) An editor that help you a little more with setting up continous CC numbers across a set of knobs. That part of customization is a little more work than I'd like :) .

Solid Midi Controller, great design

Also pretty fun to jam on, I'm still quite new to the beatmaking thing but I'm finding a lot of information on the site!
