DJTT friend and Midi Fighter aficionado Ill.Gates stopped in the DJTT studio to give us an exclusive behind-the-scenes of how his live setup works. The setup includes Serato Video, a Vestax VCI-300 controller, live VJing, and fingerdrumming on the Midi Fighter 3D.

Today he shows us his full setup in the hopes that some of the tech might inspire your workflows!
