"I'd been waiting for this to hit the public, even as a limited edition. Fastest purchase I've ever made, and I don't regret it a bit. I've used pad controllers, launchpads etc but nothing delivers the same feel and response as the MF64. Straight up my favorite piece of gear in my studio."Jesse Malinen - August 18, 2017

Already dealing with support about the issue, though I got tired of the constant back and forth and resolved the issue myself by replacing the bad arcade switch with another. Also, the 1.5 months it took to get the product was also mildly disappointing. Product works great now, and am mostly a fan. The software is pretty lack luster and dated, visually and functionally.
It seems like a super cool and useful tool!!! Unfortunately though, this is my first time with any program like Ableton, and I’m having quite a bit of trouble figuring it out. But I can’t wait to figure it out and get to having fun making music :)
I bought the MIDI Fighter 64 to use as a controller for Cubase 10 so I can assign "Generic Remote" function commands and macros to control with the 64 switches instead of using keyboard shortcuts. Man,this thing hasn't seen one command as of yet. I quickly found another use for the MIDI Fighter 64, and it has now completely changed my life. I'm using it to lay out all my short sampled phrases, and then trigger them to create different arrangements. What a difference the MIDI Fighter 64 made in this respect. I've got every controller under the sun, pad and key, but this one is special. The visual is what beats the **** out of every other controller I have, and makes this task a joy instead of a severe beating to my eyes. I can now clearly see every switch instantly and that's a huge plus for me because I never found it that easy to do on any other controller. I also never liked doing this on my Push 2 which in comparison is also an 8x8 grid that I could have used for this purpose, but found that the pads are really close together and were viewed by me as a big giant blur of pads when it came down to setting up lots of samples for playing out arrangements. The switches on the MF64 are unbelievably responsive and great for tapping out sample rhythms and instrument phrases easily. Dude, I'm getting another one and I'll use that one for what I had fist intended to use it for... or maybe not. I guess I'll just keep buying them until I reach that point. :D There are so many uses for this wonderful switch controller that I could go on and on forever about it. Thank you so much for this special music production tool. I had no idea how great this actually was going to be. I love DJTechTools!
