Video: Rheyne Midi Fighter 3D, Twister, Launchpad Performance + Explanation

A common theme in recent years in the production world are producers who who want to not only make incredible music, but also strive to find a way to create their productions in real time, live performances. One of our favorites is Rheyne, who we’ve featured on the site many times before and who even wrote a fantastic roundup review of iOS production tools.

Today we’re sharing two new videos from Rheyne:

  • a performance in his usual ambient style using Ableton, a Midi Fighter Twister, a Launchpad, and a Midi Fighter 3D
  • and a full explanation of his Ableton controller mappings – including how he uses the 3D’s motion control and how the entire performance is synced to his studio lighting – it’s an awesome behind-the-scenes.

    Top notch. It is rare for any controllerism video to be both listenable and compelling to watch. Rheyne has accomplished both with this one, and the behind the scenes is a very welcome bonus. Keep it up!
