"Nicely built unit, no play in the axles and the knobs are easy to grab with good grip and lots of room. The led lights are a great touch too. So far the unit works good but I have a hard time understanding why the templates are not user friendly? The Traktor template works great on the first layer, the second is the sequencer and it also works as it should the other screen should be the scene but that doesn't seem to do what it's suppose too. There is no instructions or video showing how to integrate the effects portion with the Traktor sequencer. Other than that it's wicked! And yeah I would reccomend this, for the money it's hard to beat. "

Artists Are Saying:

"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."

"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."

"Loving my MF Twister! I have only had it a couple of days now but I can say it has really improved my workflow. I purchased it not as a audio tool but to MIDI map Adobe Lightroom CC using MIDI2LR. I am still adding more functions to the banks but so far with 3 banks almost fully loaded and colour coded I am really impressed with its functionality. It worked straight out of the box ready to map! Very pleased with the product! Would highly recommend! If you are looking for a case to take it with you, I couldn't find many threads specific to the Twister online but the Lowepro Dashpoint AVC 2 holds it perfectly. Just remove the gopro inserts which you can use to hold it in place and also one of the padding inserts so it doesn't click the knobs down. I also use the bluelounge nest which is perfect for raising it up on a slight angle on your desk to make it a bit more comfortable to use!"

"After drooling over it for so long, having it in my hands and playing with has exerted my expectations. The customization you have with the knobs and six buttons on the side makes this a great device to operat emu oriole things in your sets."

"Midi Fighter Utility is completely broken. Impossible to customize to my needs and doesn't work if you have any other midi controllers plugged in at the same time. Any time I make a change in the MF Utility it breaks the controller and it no longer works as advertised inside Ableton. The hardware build quality is 5 stars hands down, but the software that runs it absolutely ruins its functionality, so I'm giving it 1 star. Please for the love of music hire some good coders to fix this!"

"Versatile piece of kit. Looks and feels solid! Infinite encoder bliss..."
