DJTechTools has just announced a new MIDI controller inspired by classic video game systems, MidiFighter.
MidiFighter is an ready-to-assemble MIDI controller that features 16 game-style buttons and 16 programmable LEDs. It can be customized and expanded, too.
MidiFighter MIDI Controller Details:
- Release Date: November 30th
- Price: TBA
- Plug and Play compatible device compliant midi controller
- USB powered
- Must be assembled (no expertise required)
- 16 programable buttons
- 16 programable LEDS
- Expandable to 20 programmable buttons and 4 analogue controls
- Limited Edition 200 piece run in this configuration (black PCB with white LEDS)
This thing looks like it’s going to be pretty insanely fun.
MidiFighter is a DIY kit – but it’s not hardcore DIY – it’s funcore DIY:
The Midifighter kit comes in a flat box that can be personally assembled in 5 minutes. Entry level moders can select the arcade button colors they want when ordering and assemble the kit into a custom configuration that fits their personal style or mapping. The arcade buttons snap into place thanks to our hand made clips that require zero soldering. Just screw together the frame using a simple allen wrench, snap in the arcade buttons and your custom controller is assembled and finished.
The finished controller is plug and play with super high quality low latency drivers and will work with all midi compatible software.
Because it’s a kit, you can customize it. Use color-coded buttons. Use the extra analog and digital input ports toadd mod wheels, joysticks, sliders and knobs. And if you want to get hardcore, the kit is totally open source so you can hack the firmware.
Pricing is TBA, but we should know soon, because they plan to release this November 30th.
