    Thanks for all the info DJTT.  From the info I’ve gathered on this site and youtube, I’ve decided to DIY a midi controller and was wondering, if you can say, what faders are you using or what are some good site to find good dj style faders with no circuit board attached?

  • http://www.facebook.com/trauma.anyman Trauma Any-Man

    hey … was wondering if these controllers will work through FL Studio or a Kaossilator pro/Kaoss pad? Love the look of them and want to try a new approach at music but just not into djing atall

  • ntz_ntz

    I’m new at all this dj thing and I bought a Traktor S2. Could someone explain to me the advantages of having this specific controller connected to the PC at the same time?

  • Triplehexxentertainment

    i have a laptop and traktor pro 2. i want to get an MF beatmasher, MF cue master, and an MF classic. what kind of mixer should i get and how should i route everything together? i dont want to use an s4 or any other dj controller. please help! i am not great with tech stuff but i am a good musician. thanks

  • Marcus

    hey there. i’m a producer thinking about using a midifighter for cotroling NI traktor 12 in my daw. is that possible to the same extent that you guys are useing it for traktor pro? is it possible to use the different mappings that you have made for traktor pro?

    midi fighter isn’t a professional tool. it’s a toy made in someone’s garage.
    on midi fighter product page, it should really have information about what kind of arcade buttons it is designed for. typically arcade buttons are 30mm. it says nothing about using 24mm push buttons. lack of information and professionalism.

    • DJDoubleYou

      So why is Ean using them in clubs?????
      And the buttons are still called Arcade buttons, only a bit smaller.

  • SeratoFail

     I think you guys really failed with the serato accessory tagline thing… I woulda just left serato out of your article…

    the issues with your controllers and serato is the profile so low, while good for some creates issues when It needs set up next to deep deep flight cases for 1210′s etc as most serato DJ’s use very TALL pieces of gear.

    Alot alot alot alot of serato dj’s now including me use Dicers because of you,thanks! why would we need 16 more buttons with dicers present?

    Secondly but most importantly anyone using serato these days is expanding gear for one reason ONLY the bridge. And this thing just doesn’t look bridge friendly… most ableton plugins you would want to use all have 6-8 parameters on knobs and their are way too many buttons to be warranted you dont need 16 for  the sample banks… Too be honest the slim NI controller is more of A proper gear addition. Way better price point, the profile of the actual hardware is much better sitting next to traditional gear. plenty of buttons, alot more knobs to the bridge etc, you just need to fashion an overlay oh well.

    Also at the same price as a MFP is the Xone 1d which is the monster serato/bridge controller addon “to be added to the setup”

    Maybe a serato accessory model in the future could have the proper knob-age and faders to rival the Xone 1d taller case etc etc etc etc

    Awesome stuff… 

    Really wanna go for the cue master as I think you can control filter and echo dry/wet (is that right) but I think I’d miss the gater and a few other instant effects. Are all of those buttons cue points or could you hook up  the fourth layer to do other stuff? Confused. :-/

    I’ll wait to see what the mapping looks like I guess.

     I’m thinking of ditching my MIDI controller setup and going to a MF Pro + DJM 800 setup. BUT, I’m a little nervous about having only the MF Pro as my only deck transport controller (play, pause, sync, pitch shift). Is anybody doing that and was it hard to transition to?

    Congrats on ya hard work guys, these look great.

    With the “XX FADE” and “CUE MASTER” being the exact same config in different orientations, you kinda get two for one. 

    Do either version ”XX FADE” and “CUE MASTER” send the same super nob/fade values? Or do either midi fighters work of different firmwares?

    More importantly/where I’m getting at, will Techtools support the use of being able to switch from either variant on the one midi fighter?

       Too expensive?  These babies are more than $100 cheaper than the discontinued customized midifighters.  Plus, they look way more rugged.  I would have gladly paid $550 no questions asked.

      I tested it and yes- 1 audio 2 (with plastic case removed)  totally fits into the case and could easilly be mounted to the PCB, there is a screw and hole on the audio 2 board that works perfectly… So, all you have to do is cut 3 holes in your pro case for the audio and usb – then boom! you have 1 audio 2 in a pro..

    Very nice. Rugged construction. Creative midi. A footpedal-in would be awesome. The record-pin hole is a nice detail.

    The only thing that’s stopping me is the price. The price-point seems way over for this type of controller. Just sayin’.

    Also, from a design perspective, round lit buttons would have been better IMO than those square ones, which kind of stick out too much esthetically.

    Nice job over all. Best of luck.

  • Esca – :DiFFERHEAD.net

    Hi Guys…those things are amazing!!!

    Just a question, you said that the XX Fader is made to lay beside a turntable acting as cross fader. I’m absolutely sure you know how important is the crossfader for a scratch dj, so, my question is, how is the CF quality of those faders? are them replaceable?

    I bought standarmi MF couple of days before the MF PRO was announced, but I think I’ll start a MF collection!

    Thanks a lot guys, and Ean, you are THE Genius! ;)

    Cheers from Italy. ;)

    • Pcunha_48

       It looks the same to me also x) can someone enlight us on the difference?

      • Anonymous

        Looks like the 16 arcade buttons are oriented differently. If the “XX Fader” was placed on it’s side like the “Cue Master” it would technically be facing the wrong way. It’s kind of hard to tell because the buttons are all white but if they were color coded to the deckalized mapping or IG mapping you would see what im talking about. Plus the USB port might be placed in a different position

    • http://www.eangolden.com Ean Golden

      yup- they have the same controls, but in order to be used sideways- and in the manner designed, they must have totally different software programs installed so the buttons send out the right notes and the faders are oriented correctly. They also have separate mapping files so it’s essentially a different model.  

      • proben

        software programs?  Do you mean mappings, or does a third party software program need to be installed for these to work?  Are they doing something more than sending MIDI commands, and is it possible for an XX Fader version to be turned into a cue master by simply loading a new tsi or mapping file?

      • proben

        You mean the firmware installed on the MF itself, right, not separate software for the computer?  Will the firmware be available so if someone wanted to switch their XX to a CM they could reflash with new firmware and be on their way?
