Routine: Shawn Wasabi’s “HOTTO DOGU” on Midi Fighter

Shawn Wasabi (formerly Sssshawnnnn) has put together a fantastic show yet again in a new live performance video on a Midi Fighter Spectra. This time, he’s playing an original song with an enormous number of samples to trigger. He writes:

Original composition recorded live with a DJ TechTools Midi Fighter Spectra into Ableton Live 8. In my kitchen.
Bank changes are done via MIDI switches mapped out to note ons and note offs on specific buttons (in addition to the traditional side button switch). 15 total pages/banks.

Vocal samples are from Filthy Frank, Skrillex, Dillon Francis, Deadmau5, and the Japanese mochi pastry chefs at Nakatanido in Nara, Japan.
