    Default Midi Fighter 3D vs. Kontrol F1

    I am wanting to get one of these in the near future. I lean towards the F1 but the whole idea of the 3D and how if functions is pretty flippin' sweet! I know I am asking this on techtools so I am hoping to get an un-bias opinion.

    What are all of your thoughts on the two? Is this just going to come down to preference or can you do more with the F1 with the additional deck software?

    F1: for having full on control of traktor 2.5.s new sample decks

    MF3D: accelerometer and gyroscope make only sense for controlling fx, as ean does in the presentation video, not really for sample decks

    debatable!!! the midi fighter 3d will have 4 different scenes, so you could map the first scene to the fx and the next scene to the sample decks, with the acellerometer being like the filter for the samples, the 3rd scene for the loop recoder controls and buttons for loading clips into the sample decks, then the 4th deck can be like a classic midifighter mapping...I say go with the 3d for the flexibility of functions (no doubt you can map the f1 to your liking also, but the 3d has the up of the motion sensing tech

    and the F1 has the up of 4 knobs and faders, it comes down lo preference really.

    @OT what are you intending to map to it?

    You won't he able to use the 3d to fully control sample decks.

    Traktor have now made clear that it won't be midi mappable, you will need an f1 for 2.5 multiple samples control

    yeah I just read that post about the non fully controlable sample decks I'm so upset I was planing on just using some 50 dollar mpd 18 I found on ebay lol oh well. My vote is the f1 now, I think sample clipping and loop recorder controls is much more viable than the midifighter 3d

    the mf3d looks cool - but not convinced on the gyroscope thingy. i'd like a mf3d for the same reasons i wanted a midifighter classic - a decent 4x4 set of really responsive buttons. the mf3d also adds in rgb colours and extra buttons for "external 4 banks mode" so u get 4 banks of 4x4 buttons and also some extra buttons too.

    the F1 now has to be the (only) choice for controlling the remix decks. plus you get 4 faders and 4 knobs in addition to the main 5x4 grid. so button wise they're mostly equal, tho don't suppose the F1 has internal banks for midi mapping? maybe... the F1 buttons are probably quite like the launchpads ones - which i really like - but nothing as responsive as the F1's.

    as weltraumpapst said they're two quite different controllers for different purposes.
