Complete Control

Four banks of 16 high-resolution encoders with a configurable button on every knob. Little space, lots of control.

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.

Easy to Integrate

Compact and completely USB-powered, the Midi Fighter Twister is easy to fit into any gear bag and integrate into every work flow.

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.

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 Versatile 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.

Why Musicians Swear By The Midi Fighter Twister

Touring artists around the world including Satori, Weval and KINK rely on the Midi Fighter every night to play their music. Why do so many choose the Twister?

  • Control your entire set with 16 knobs - The Twister provides an enormous amount of control over your set with 16 knob in a small format.

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.

Serato compatability is iffy at best. Ancient documentation.

I'm no stranger to modding XML files for Serato. I've done tons of stuff on Push 2, APC40 mk2, Traktor (F1, X1, Z1, 2), tons of Pioneer gear, Denon gear, Rane gear, Roland gear, Reloop, and more. However, this device doesn't seem to hold settings and/or doesn't communicate with Serato properly. For example, I can map out stems, including modifiers, to handle the software, but the RGB does not correspond if the command is sent from either the mixer or the software. Additionally, the same XML file that works for handling various functions will work... sometimes.... That is, I may need to unplug/replug the Twister, then restore midi defaults on Serato, then reload the XML... often multiple times... to get the Twister to work. Not using a hub. Not changing the XML. Everything else works fine, and works every single time. Only the Twister that is just randomly failing. As a touring professional, it's to the point that I've removed it from my live performance setup because it's simply unreliable. I hate to say that. I've been a long time DJTT customer, and will be in the future - just not for their home designed products until they have better support and documentation.

Worked great out of the box

Fantastic controller!

I play keys in two bands - I have two keyboard controllers at the rehearsal spots for each band, plus my home rig. So six controllers, each a different make/model. I use Gig Performer to manage the various VST instruments for each rig. While Gig Performer does allow me to map each controller's faders and buttons to the various parameters I want to change during a performance, having a single controller located at the same place in each rig and with consistent feel and performance has really helped. The Fighter Twister is exactly what I needed! Nice build quality and all the control options I need.
