3 POWERFUL WAYS DJS AND PRODUCERS USE THE TWISTER


1. TRAKTOR DRUM SEQUENCER

The Traktor remix deck is now an analog-style drum machine with full visual feedback and step sequencing. Try layering in a 808 kick drum pattern during a transition between songs, or adding some hi-hats over your favorite tune.  Make your DJ sets standout by adding 909/808 style drum beats to Traktor with ease. Use our preset rhythms to call up patterns quickly, or save your own custom patterns to controller permanently. 


"Quality piece of equipment, highly customizable through the MF app provided by the website and any compatible midi-capable software. Got it for the Traktor Pro 2 Sequencer capabilities. Stoked on this product! " - Robert Blatter, Twister customer.

2. TWISTED GRATIFICATION 

Twisted Gratification unlocks 16 combo-effects in Traktor enabling Richie Hawtin and Dubfire Style effects with the single turn of a knob. A release-all knob turns off all effects with an echo in just one press. Get lost in your DJ sets once again with the ultimate effects controller for Traktor. 



"Amazingly well built. Easy setup. The perfect knob controller." - Marty, Twister Customer

3. WITH ABLETON LIVE 

The Twister is an especially powerful and flexible controller for your Ableton setup. 4 pages of 16 knobs with full visual feedback gives you plenty of mappable surface in a portable package.  Customize the LEDS and knobs style endlessly including colors, indents, resolution and even "Super Knobs" with multiple CC's on a single encoder. Map your favorite controls to the Twister, and have more fun making music! 

The Twister also works as an analog-style drum sequencer enabling easy grooves without the need to touch touch your computer. 



"I use it for everything now from controlling my effects to my soft synths. With four banks of precise rotaries and push buttons this is my new favorite. Being able to edit multiple controllers in a bank also makes customizing a breeze..." - Edward Munat, customer.

"The MIDI Fighter Twister is as much at home in the tinkerer and DIY music technologist's hands as it is in the average DJ's. The minimalist design lends itself to letting the user develop their own completely unique way of using the device. The full power of it is deceptively hidden beneath its out of the box ease of use. I personally love the unique smooth rubberized and hard plastic case, complemented by the rubberized knobs and glossy plastic detail covering the LEDs. The bottom is recessed, allowing space for the included USB cable to be tucked into inside your bag as well as provide a comfortable and solid grip while operating hand-held. If you appreciate good product design, you'll appreciate the attention to detail and intentionality of the MFT. The only downside I really see is that the included sequencer was really designed for the 4 sample banks of Traktor, and not the full capability that Ableton Live could offer. Being able to sequence up to 4 samples simultaneously is an awesome bonus you'll enjoy using during live performances, but don't expect to sequence all of your productions' percussion from this piece of hardware. This is a really excellent product and belongs in every electronic musician's arsenal."

"What a great piece of kit. intuitive to use, robust, and the midifighter utility makes customising the setup a snap. I use it as a control surface for tweaking setting of soft synths. the dual-purpose combination of encoders and buttons is the killer feature for me. The built-in sequencer is really usable. well thought out, well executed."

"This thing is gorgeous. Using it with Ableton Live right now. The mapping software allows you to customize pretty much every parameter you could imagine. Sometimes LEDs flicker for no apparent reason, but that personally doesn't bother me (makes for a kind of cool yet unintended strobe effect). Only thing I'd request is for it to be a little heavier. It tends to slide a little when I use the side buttons."
