So I finally received my prize from DJ Techtools! And its an AMAZING controller, the MIDI Fighter 3D. A 4×4 RGB arcade button controller, with 4 banks, 6 side buttons and very responsive tilt sensor and compass! Literally packed with different MIDI messages for the most expressive controllerism!
I’m so excited about it that I decided to port my MF Pro Ableton script for this guy. All I had to do was implement the correct LED feedback messages, re arrange some button assignments and implement the tempo blink and master VU meter.
Here is a beautiful live performance from Rheyne featuring the script.
It also got featured at the DJ Tech Tools website!
The mapping consits of 4 pages.
Page 1: is the General control page and consists of tempo controls, global play, stop and record and the controls to move around the “red box”
Page 2: is the Clip control page, you have a 4×3 grid and the top row is the stop button for each track.
Page 3: is the Track control page. Each row corresponds to one of the rows inside of the red box. And it consits of Track select, Mut, Arm and Solo.
Page 4: is the Drum Rack page. It plays the highlighted 4×4 grid in the drum rack. Make sure that the drum track is Armed and the Track input is On in the Midi preferences page.
Also the tilt Left|Right|Front|Back messages get automatically mapped to the first effect device of the selected track.
A lot of this code was inspired by and “borrowed” from Hanz Petrov, Will Marshall and the Livid Framework. Without them this wouldn’t exist.
