Midi Fighter Ableton Mode + Limited Edition Controllers

When the original Midi Fighter Pros were designed, we wanted to give every DJ a chance to use the units as versatile performance tools that flourish in live performance settings. Today, we’re announcing a limited edition of the Pros, with a clean white design to match Mad Zach’s Ableton packs for plug and play fun. Additionally, all Midi Fighter units now have an Ableton Mode allowing for more intuitive mapping – read on for a video demo and full details.


ABLETON MODE FOR ALL MIDI FIGHTERS

Software Mode: Ableton!

Mapping controllers in Ableton Live is significantly different than mapping in traditional DJ softwares, so we’ve developed a firmware setting that optimizes the MIDI messages sent by stripping down unnecessary additional notes sent. The new firmware setting also allows the user to use momentary mode with controls on their Midi Fighter unit – meaning that the triggered clip or effects will only play while the button is being held down. This is a basic but essential setting that really allows intelligent performance, and after developing this mode for the Midi Fighter 3D, we knew it needed to be mirrored in all of the other parts of the Midi Fighter line.

Getting a unit into Ableton Mode is simple – just start up the Midi Fighter Utility (download here if you haven’t already: OSX or Windows), plug in a Midi Fighter, and select “Ableton” under the Software Mode section. Remember that every time you want to switch software, you’ll need to change this setting!

  • BatKING

    Is it possible to have the “Mad Zach free sound pack” as a Remix SET for traktor remix deck ? 

  • Guest

    Very tempting but i will be sold when I see an actual mix done
    Can someone explain how to integrate this with let’s say another controller/mixer and play track A, do some these tricks with the midi fighter and move on to track B
    This would be very useful to me and would indeed represent a mixture of DJing and performIng
    Thanks

    Amazing Update to firmware. I’ve been asking for momentary switching in live for a long time. The combinations and depths are huge now even with my modified Midi fighter classic. Well done guys
