Twisted Gratification: Instant Gratification FX For Midi Fighter Twister

DJing is all about being in the moment, creating new sounds and blends without thinking too much. For that reason, I wanted to make a dead-simple mapping that makes it very easy to create complex effects techniques with just a single press. The Twisted Gratification mapping gives you 16 powerful effects preset, designed with house and techno in mind. Each knob does the job of three effects, adding original flavor or building seamless transitions between songs.

Twisted Gratification Traktor FX Mapping For Midi Fighter Twister

The original Instant Gratification mapping was perfect for bass music and had a very glitchy feel. These effects are much more subtle and emulate popular effect chains in house and techno like DubFire’s Rattle echo and Richie Hawtin’s famous techno snare rolls. Each knob gently increases the level of the effects, while manipulating carefully-chosen ranges that will sound perfect every time.

For example, instead of just dropping out the low end with a filter, why not also add just a touch of reverb and a little drive for grit at the same time. These effects setups would take too long to setup live, so this mapping delivers 16 in a single press.


  • Each row is a different style of effect, each column is a different version of that style. This means you can have four FX units activated at any one time.
  • The bottom right knob is a Release FX knob – press to echo freeze and kill all FX, press and hold to filter the echo freeze
  • Hold any side button to see FX assignment, and press any of the four quadrants of the Midi Fighter Twister to
  • assign/remove FX from that deck.
