Topic: Midi Fighter 3D

Hi! I have a few questions on the Midi Fighter 3D. How do the pads feel vs the launchpad? Would you recommend it for playing alongside launchpad? What is the difference between it and the spectra. Is it Ableton compatible? Thank you in advance for answering these questions.

Re: Midi Fighter 3D

The MIDI Fighter series all use arcade buttons, ever been to an arcade? then you know how the MIDI Fighters feel.

For playing alongside a launchpad it all just depends on what you want, Although I think drums are a little easier on a MIDI Fighter

The MIDI Fighter 3D has a accelerometer, meaning it can sense tilt. with this you can control various parameters and effects, e.g. the more you tilt the MIDI Fighter to the left, the higher the freqeuncy for a high pass or low pass filter and vice versa. basically its like a twisty knob, but with tilt. The spectra is simply a more customizable version of the MIDI Fighter 3D without that accelerometer. Zambuesta's Gifony video demo's it pretty well,

MIDI Fighters being a MIDI controller, is comaptible with any DAW that supports MIDI Input n stuff, that includes ableton, and you'll probably use the drum racks within ableton the most. Like Shawn Wasabi!

hope that covers it :)

Re: Midi Fighter 3D

AsianPenguin is basically right but forgot that the 3D features 4 extra dedicated bank buttons on top.

Midi Fighter Spectra:
- 16 Arcade Buttons with RGB colored rings around them (on a 4 by 4 grid)
- 6 Sidebuttons on the side for "other" things. (e.g. switch banks or whatever you map them to)

Midi Fighter 3D:
- same as spectra and
- accelerometer aka 3D-Sensor-thingy (kinda works like a knob when mapped)
- 4 dedicated Bank Buttons (can be remapped but only glow in white)

I'd definitely choose the Arcade buttons over the Launchpad pads. But it really depends on what fits your preferences and how you want to perform.
Midi Fighters are good for Fingerdrumming and fast firing of samples since the buttons are really tactile, meanwhile Pads like the ones on a NI Maschine work well for things like drumrolls since they are velocity sensitive and also react instantly like Midi Fighters. Launchpads have (as you probably know) this sort of hard feel to them which sometimes makes you miss a button when performing at M4SONIC level, but they have a perfect layout and are fun to use.

In the end it doesn't matter what you buy, since in essence all of these controllers are just better keyboards.

Oops :P, thanks for covering the patches, I guess you could say you're a "fail safe"ty.......
