Several years ago, our own Mad Zach kicked off the sound pack trend here on DJ TechTools, and it's been growing a steady following ever since. Sound packs are a plug and play modern DJ/producer tool that allows you to play great music with nothing but two hands and a 16 button grid. In today's article we will tell you what they are, who makes them and how to get these amazingly fun DJ tools.
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. At the same time, ill.Gates is launching a brand new set of performance soundpacks on the DJTT webstore - watch the video and learn more inside!
There's no doubt that our Midi Fighter arcade button controllers have been a huge win with the finger drumming community, with a rapid response rate and ability to withstand extreme abuse. This routine video matches up ill.Gates with Mad Zach and his brother Sabayon for a communal controller soundpack jam - in a fuzzy room, of course.
We are proud and happy to announce that our first community-sourced project and DJ TechTools' newest product, The Midi Fighter Twister, is now available for preorder. The first run of Twisters are sailing towards San Francisco right now and will be shipping in 2 weeks or less. To mark the occasion we shot a detailed look at the most discussed feature, the Traktor Sequencer, and some very lovely photos to showcase the Twister's final look.
