"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

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 center piece of any rig.

"The MIDI Fighter 64 has become my favorite controller overnight. I'm already thinking about getting a MIDI Fighter 3D to accompany it just to switch chains. For anyone on the fence, just buy one. They are superb!"

"After spending about six hours with the MIDI Fighter 64 (in Ableton) I can definitely say this is easily my favorite MIDI controller for finger drumming. The buttons are so responsive, and they bounce back like a charm so you can really rapid-fire samples. As someone who is used to squishy velocity-sensitive buttons, this was a lovely feeling. (note: I know velocity sensitive buttons are great, I love them. But regarding finger drumming, I always want something more sturdy/tough) The lights are equally impressive. The RGB LEDs are amazing for both making entertaining animations for your performances and colour coding your samples. I personally do both. SUMMARY: By far my favorite MIDI controller for finger drumming. This is definitely a must have for beginners and experts. "
