"I've been searching for the perfect Midi controller for use with Adobe Lightroom for some time, and found the Midi Fighter Twister via recommendation on midi2lightroom.com I was looking for something with a large number of encoders to bind with different sliders in Lightroom, and would also be useful for music / sound production and was immediately wowed by the Fighter Twister's design. Immediately ordered and have been testing out over the last week. Binding the Fighter Twister's controls to Lightroom is made very easy using the Midi2LR application https://rsjaffe.github.io/MIDI2LR/ and I am already finding it is saving me time and making the editing process more intuitive and fun when grading large batches of photos. I have added chroma caps to mine representing each of the 8 colour channels in Lightroom, and have set this up in Midi2LR to use different software banks for Hue, Saturation, Luminance etc. which makes it a breeze to make quick colour adjustments on the fly. I would not hesitate to recommend this to any photographers looking for a solid and versatile midi controller for Lightroom. I'm looking forward to playing around with this in Ableton and other apps for music and video production when I get the time. "

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."

"It's easy to find MIDI controllers with potentiometers, but I was specifically looking for a big array of encoders, and this does not disappoint. Build quality is excellent with useful level LEDs on each knob, it comes with an editor, and the knobs have a good feel to them with a little bit of weight/resistance. This is my first Midi Fighter product, and I'm intrigued to see what else they come up with because the build quality is genuinely surprising. Nothing feels cheap. The only downside is it seems like it disconnects on the first MIDI input if booted with the system (i.e. I have it plugged in at my studio and it turns on with all the other USB stuff when the main computer turns on). If I instead plug it in after the system boots, it's just fine. Everything has quirks, so it's not that big of a deal, but it took me a while to figure out exactly why it was giving me trouble. Also, it needs to be powered by direct USB input, not through an unpowered hub. Now that I've gotten that down, it's never an issue."

"The control on this is awesome in ableton, i can tweak all my automation, and the fine control feature is amazing, its like having 3 separate controllers."

"This thing is awesome! I just scratched the surface so far with using it in ableton and traktor. I am excited but unsure as to how to customize it, but once I invest some time into it I'm sure it'll be even more amazing!"

"Really impressive bit of gear, which I'm using with Live. My only reasons for not giving it a 5 star rating are: 1, the color programming isn't rock solid, and I occasionally get colors other than the ones I select in the software, and 2, the encoder value changes sometimes don't provide fine enough adjustment in Live, and turning the encoder can sometimes change a value by 2 or 3 values but not easily just 1 value (like on a macro knob controlling semitones).
