"I love these buttons so much, I don't want to use anything else. I love the lights. I love how it feels. The arcade button is such a good button for playing things" - Shawn Wasabi

What Makes The 64 Great?

  • Includes software and 30 free training lessons
  • Fun and easy way to learn music skills
  • Way quieter than a drum kit but just as fun!
  • Compatible with ALL major music software out of the box

Ultra Bright LEDs

The ultra bright LEDs are perfect for performance videos. Easily trigger pre-made LED animations with one touch, or customize each LED yourself for advanced light shows. This is the exact same model Shawn Wasabi uses.

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 like a real drum for ultra fast playback, easy triplets & rapid drum rolls.

Built Like a Tank

The Midi Fighters are professional MIDI controllers handmade with extreme care in San Francisco. Linkin Park's tour manager told us, "these are the only pieces that never break on the road!" You can rely on them being the centerpiece of any rig.

The Best Buttons

All Midi Fighter's feature a grid of high performance triggers designed to last a lifetime. These genuine SANWA arcade buttons feature super smooth operation with an unparalleled level of sensitivity.

The Midi Fighter 64 also features beautiful full-color ring lighting, with color and a range of animations controlled via MIDI. Our hardware is the only controller in the world with built in animations that can be triggered by MIDI or directly from the buttons without any complex clip programming.

"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

"I love it. The buttons on it feel great. The arcade style buttons bounce back. They feel really nice to tap and it allows me to tap a lot faster on them." Teqqnix - popular YouTubber

Really solid MidiFighter64 but...

It's beautiful, and designed just as I requested and I love that. It feels great to play and I am finally really learning how to work with it's programming. Unfortunately one of the buttons springs seems to be broken which ends up feeling like a squish and then watching it slowly return to it's original position. Hoping to get that fixed soon though. The employees have been really helpful in letting me know what they can do.

Holy ****, this thing rocks.

COVID19 has made it difficult to maintain my normal hobbies, so I figured "Hey, maybe I should learn to make music." I could NOT be more pleased. I'm a first time finger drummer so I don't have a lot to compare it to, but I absolutely love this. The buttons are extremely responsive, the lights are fun, and I had no problem setting it up with Ableton + The midi fighter utility. My biggest suggestion: If you're new, get Melodics -- it's like Rock Band/Guitar Hero for finger drumming.
