Double The Controls

Dynamic LED Feedback

Multi colored LED rings that provide clear feedback on a knob's position. Always know what's happening without getting lost in the software.

Rock Solid Construction

Built with the highest quality parts in the world, the Midi Fighter has been built to play hard by professional musicians and DJs.

More Control - Less Gear

Alps (the most trusted maker of knobs) built custom knobs for the Twister that are smooth as butter and can be pressed like a button. The only ones on the planet,  these two controls double your creation power, and makes it easy to play music without thinking.

  • Turn on an effect, and control it - with the same knob.
  • Get very precise - Pressing the knob can switch to high resolution mode for precise EQ adjustments.
  • Two knobs in one - Start by turning up the reverb, and then hold down the knob and that same turn can now control a filter.

Deep Customization

The easy to use utility allows you to customize what each knob/button does for totally personalized control.

Three In One

On the Twister one knob can equal up to three controls, giving you a lot of power in a small space.

Automatic Mapping

On Mac computers the Twister will automatically turn any knob you select with your cursor. No more mapping hassles.

The mixing board in your backpack

  • Small enough to fit next to your laptop on an airplane
  • No power adapter required
  • Powerful enough to perform on the road, and produce music at home

Even though it’s smaller than a book, the Midi Fighter Twister has enough power to run an entire Ableton Session. Scroll through pages of clips, and switch between different effects seamlessly as the dynamic LEDS respond in real time.

Why Is An Endless Encoder So Powerful For Music Making?

The “Endless Encoder” is a knob that keeps turning forever without any clicks or stops. This allows one knob to control ANYTHING in your software, from filters to tempo.

Always In Sync

Adjust a knob in Ableton, and the encoder will instantly update to reflect the change. Only endless encoders can do this.

Your Versitile Friend

Each encoder can be three different styles of knob, and is always there for you when you need it.

16 Encoders = 64 knobs

Because encoders change postition as you switch pages (unlike fixed knobs) you actually get 64 controls in one tiny space.

Key Features:
  • 16 high resolution encoders with integrated push switch and LED feedback
  • 6 side mounted function keys
  • Highly portable form factor
  • USB bus powered - no wall adapter required

"The Midi Fighter Twister is exactly what was missing from the world of CC based controllers. The push encoders are the perfect nexus of button and knob, cleverly programmable and designed with the level of quality and polish characteristic of DJ Tech Tools." - Ill Gates

"The MF Twister has fast become my trusted go-to controller for encoders. It soars above the competition in terms of quality, versatility, and portability. Everyone needs a good set of knobs, and the Twister delivers." - Mad Zach

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.
