This Is One Of Our Favorite Finger Drumming Videos Ever




The One Minute Guide to Finger Drumming (from the expert, Mad Zach)

  1. It may help to position your hands somewhat diagonal to your controller. Experiment with your wrist-angle to find what's most comfortable for you. 
  2. Instead of moving your arms, focus on holding your wrists still while articulating your fingers in a smooth, effortless manner
  3. Start small: just focus on keeping time with 1 or 2 sounds. It’s okay to stay simple, don’t worry about going fast or crazy at first.
  4. Leave room in your mix, don’t worry about playing every sound at once! Think instead in groups of 2-3 tones.
  5. Use a “build” button to transition between energy intensities within your sound rack.
  6. Experiment with mirroring your two hands rhythmically but using different numbers of buttons in each hand’s pattern.
  7. Don’t be afraid to find “chords” or places where multiple buttons sound great together.

Fun and Powerful

Remember playing in the arcade? Wasn't it FUN? Shouldn't music making feel fun and not frustrating? Meet the 3D: 4 banks of 16 buttons means this is all you need to play a full song. The fully customizable LEDs let you create bright, eye-popping light shows.

Plays Like A Drum

Authentic Japanese arcade buttons are the highest quality button in the world offering industry leading latency and an incredible feel. They bounce back with spring loading for ultra fast playback and easy triplets & drum rolls. It's popular for a reason.

Built Like A Tank

All 16 Sanwa arcade butons are made in Japan to the highest specification. Rated at 5 million presses, they will probably never break in your life time. Combine that with rock solid construction and zero moving parts? This will survive a serious beating.

"At first, I was a little hesitant to buy this product, as I saw many other controllers of similar types. I had seen videos online of performances and I instantly became intrigued. Owning Novation's Launchpad before hand, I was introduced into the art of finger drumming. However, it wasn't until recently when I bought the Midi Fighter that I have experienced this on a next level. The authentic buttons keep you playing all the time (even if it isn't connected to anything!). I can confidently say that this is the best MIDI controller I have had the pleasure of owning. If you're curious about the Midi Fighter products, I would definitely recommend them for both those who are beginners and experienced."

"Just a super simple controller with the best button game in the industry in my opinion. Very mappable of course so your not confined to pre mapped parameters like other companies restrain you to be to push their DAWs;-) You won't be disappointed and if you are the resale on these things tend to be more than what you buy it for just saying."
