Midi Fighter Routine: ill.Gates vs Mad Zach + Sabayon

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.

Also: we’ll be launching new soundpack volumes from both ill.Gates and Mad Zach in the coming weeks. Be the first to try out a new set of sounds from ill.Gates by signing up for the DJTT newsletter – we’ll send out the first ill.Gates pack next week!

    Try to watch this without sound 🙂 Imagine the Midi Fighter having jus’ one big push & sensitive knob/button, they still can rock the foam box. Peace
