About this deal

Use something other than MIDI channels to differentiate the Knob behaviors in whatever app is used to customize your midi controller, like 2 different CC numbers. WIth velocity each knob in a relative mode produces 11 different values in either direction which you can pin to whatever speed you want in CSI. Another trick I've used in tandem with Faderbox is a relative endless encoder on my X-Touch set to "adjust last touched FX parameter" for fine tuning. Has anyone gotten anything together using the sequencer more in-depth or just more specified functionality aimed at Norns? I’m considering getting one of these to use as a performance effects controller, dub delays/filter/reverb, and was wondering how well the acceleration works for fine/coarse control of values in a live scenario?

a gotcha: that alt firmware does not support turn acceleration, while the current official firmware does.

The problem is, of course, that is that if there is a plugin on all 16 sounds in a group the processing power would probably be too high. After you check that any other MIDI related applications (Ableton, Traktor, etc) are closed connect your Twister directly to your computer and open the MF Utility.

As far as I remember mpk motherboard is the size of the unit itself so you cannot just saw off the keyboard part and end up with a sleek and small knob unit.

Because encoders change postition as you switch pages (unlike fixed knobs) you actually get 64 controls in one tiny space. The easy to use utility allows you to customize what each knob / button does for totally personalized control. It works great but I’ve decided to move my whole back end to Ableton so I can start doing some max effects to screw around with the MIDI stream. For example, Valhalla Room has a really annoying parameter range for Decay that is very poorly geared towards control surface/knob users. Please give us the reason for your assessment in the following text box and – if possible – your e-mail address for further questions.

Built with the highest quality parts in the world, the Midi Fighter has been built to play hard by professional musicians and DJs. With four banks of 16 encoders, the Midi Fighter Twister allows control of any parameter in any software. Any item found to be defective through faulty materials or workmanship will be replaced or repaired, (at our discretion). I have an akai mpk mini mi 2 it’s great but if I could just have the encoders without the rest… I wonder if it’s possible to mod? Load thousands of pre-created sound packs and start playing your own versions of those songs instantly.I think the editor works without one plugged in…just setup same cc and midi channel and I don’t think it’ll complain.

I still prefer the Twister, due to its knob spacing and of course the high level of customization with color coding and indicator tweaks.

For instance, let's say I have a session where I have mapped a knob on the MFT to the volume for channel 1. 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.
