    For all you haters; up yours!!! Techtools, when will you be selling the midi pros again. I, ManDingo, missed out on the first bunch!! And maybe a weeks heads-up would be nice as I would have time to ready my moneys for this purchase before they sell out again. Times are hard in this economy, so I will need to know to keep funds aside for this purchase. One week ManDingo go hungry, the next week ManDingo has money…you follow. So, if I know one week before when Midi fighter pro will arrive in store, ManDingo will go hungry for two weeks so to buy this great product.

    Look, there have been many negative comments posted about the controllers and mappings discussed in this article. furthermore, a debate regarding contollerism or “DJTT kids” as a whole as opposed to traditional Dj’ing, or as opposed to various other methods of DJ’ing has been raised here and in other forums. This type of debate is counterproductive, I am not implying the DJTT should be praised at all cost’s, no, only that positive and negative comments should be focused on improving the musical process that these devices can act upon. Many people have many different skill levels and choose to use those skills musically in many different ways. This “old guard” perspective regarding DJ’ing is an example of typical human nature, people are simply resistant to change. This resistance is a defense mechanism  that is based on protecting a persons beliefs and past experiences, it is not based on expanding our techniques in creating music. Which ever medium you use in the creative process is positive. Artists use many different mediums to create art and this is also positive and this leads to new art forms or how we can create art in new and exciting ways. Using these devices and mappings can only be a good thing, the end-product can be debated based on the artist using these implements, that artist’s skill set, and the type of music that is created. That debate on the end-state is viable and is based on personal opinion and  personal opinion alone. In my opinion, Ean and the staff at DJTT are professionals and do not have any hidden agenda’s, supporting themselves financially through the products of their art form is completely legitimate and understandable. Through this website I have opened up a creative facet in my life and I am appreciative. I am not a professional DJ, I am a “bedroom DJ” ,or what I prefer, I am a contollerist, I am not a subject matter expert. What I am is a unbiased lover of music who sees that the  instruments offered here should be recognized as a positive step in the ever evolving world of creating music.

    I have been a long time DJTT follower and I’m not putting down Ean’s ability in anyway by this post. But honestly, that sounded like random sounds crammed together to make as Ean puts it “audio soup.” This isnt the quality that DJTT was based on or gives to its followers and customers. I am surprised that Ean put this video up to showcase the new midi fighter pro. I was very excited to watch this to see what the Midi Fighter Pro could do but this video left me disappointed. Ean I hope you can re-do a video for the Midi Fighter Pro and showcase to your loyal followers what the Midi Fighter Pro can really do. =)

    I know you love to use Traktor because of the various effects but how about a Serato Scratch Live / ITCH mapping for the Midi Fighter Pro? Maybe you know someone who can do that.
    I would order one for myself and do a mapping but I am still unsure because I use Scratch Live and I am from Europe so shipping would be quite expensive.

    Keep up your good work !!!

  • Able Body

    Ean, I’ve never been able to figue out how to map things to specific positions on a slider as you have done with these mappings and your Fader FX mapping. Is this controller specific? Is it not something you can do with all controllers? Is there a special type of midi signal that makes it possible? If you could clarify that would be awesome.

    Also, I’m sorry for the character attack you seem to be suffering. Anyone with any sense can see how generous you are to your fans and readership. My friend always told me that if you didn’t have any haters, you were doing something wrong. So keep up the good work!

    • Djunbound

      You can map any midi controller the same way. But Midi Fighters are cooler aesthetically in my opinion, and have arcade buttons which are very playable! However, the mappings on DJTT are made specifically for their products, but can be replicated if you know how to map in traktor. Hope that helps!

  • Simplefacts

    Djing…music… all live performance is art….someone else’s mapping that you completely lack technical understanding of…is not your art…complex midi mappings like this aren’t tools, they are artwork in themselves that serve specific artistic purposes for and by creator…So enjoy this mapping with humility, because the next DJTT kid at a venue that tries to explain how much more advanced controllers are and what a innovative performer he is despite his inexperience and complete inability to conversate about how and why to what ends etc is getting punched straight in the face.

      There is no such word as “conversate” genius. It is converse, furthermore, “speak intelligently about” would be a better substitute for your misuse of vocabulary and grammar.

      I agree with him honestly.  It’s okay to use these controllers and their mappings, but I wouldn’t go talking trash about how advanced they are and call using them an art (although what you make with them may be considered art).

    Honestly for all I care Ean could be a pot smoking douchebag (according to the link). It doesn’t matter….. at least to me. I personally use this site as a resource for both products and ideas. Although it is a shame if all that is true. I would not doubt that quite a few people will be disappointed. I think posting that link could end up being a dick move on your part and I only say that because if enough people take it to heart, I can see this small business taking a hard turn south. Although I do commend you sir for having the cojones to post it. People should know the truth but damn…..

      good question. you could use the XX fader model, which has a lot of the values reversed for a left hand configuration or just re-map it. A lot of musicians are left handed, I will keep that in mind in the future.
