Ready to train in no time ! 3D MIDI Fighter + Ipad

Just connect your 3D MIDI Fighter using the Apple Lightning - USB 3.0 adapter and in no time you’re ready to practice. I just had to import the samples into BeatMaker 3, you can use google drive for that and the import and mapping process is so simple and pretty straightforward. No latency works like a charm !

Simple, easy to learn system

Mad Zach's Finger Drumming tutorial is a solid, simple system that relies on using a similar layout for every soundpack, allowing you to develop the muscle memory to be able to perform at your best regardless of the style or tempo you are playing.

Great but could be better

The content is great, but in terms of learning I found it a little difficult to keep up. It would be better if it has: - ability to slow down video to see the details. Some movements are too fast to see which pads are being played. - pattern map, so that it’s easier to visualize what I’m playing. Thanks!

Learn to finger drum feedback

I thought this was great, but the one that would have made it greater would have been to split the drumming examples up into separate videos files. Having everything in one single video made it a little difficult to learn. One needed to rewind constantly and when you went back it was hard to tell if you were still in the pattern you were trying to learn or the previous one.
