We have built 5 exclusive MIDI features designed for producers and live performers that will double your control surface.
CC Toggle - Push down the knob to turn an effect on and off, like an EQ for instance.
DJ Filter - A 1-knob DJ Filter.& Great for pan or a combined low pass high pass filter.
Push to Reset - Push down the knob to reset encoder value. Great for filters and master effects.
Encoder Fine Adjust - Normally the knob controls a wide MIDI range. Push and hold a knob to enable super fine control. Great for EQ or synths.
Shift Encoder Hold - 2 knobs in one. A knob twist will send one midi message. While pressing down a knob, the same knob will send a separate midi message.
Every succesfull producer in the world has personalized their workflow to make amazing music. Your controller should allow the same. Combine The Twisters flexible encoders with an Ableton Template so that every time you have an amazing idea, a powerful studio environment is there to support you.
"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 controllers in a bank also makes customizing a breeze..." Edward - Twister Customer"
We spared no expense in sourcing the best endless encoders from the world famous ALPS company that are suitable for live performance and studio work. The twister's knobs have a silky feel that is completely unique and will not be found in any other knob - because they are custom made for us!
"I have a new favorite controller. I love new gear and have amassed quite the collection of controllers ranging from very affordable to fairly expensive. I was originally a bit hesitant at the price of the Midi Fighter Twister, but I'm so glad I went for it. This is my new go-to controller. Since it's essentially both buttons AND knobs, it can do virtually anything. If you haven't added this to your music arsenal yet, you're missing a vital weapon of creativity."

The controller is used a lot for DJ effects. For example: Twisted Gratification unlocks 16 combo-effects in Traktor enabling Richie Hawtin and Dubfire style effects with the single turn of a knob. A release-all knob turns off all effects with an echo in just one press.
The Twister is equipped with some very special PUSH encoders that allow turn control with a built in button. This doubles your control surface and
