    Default Midi fighter 3D being called an 'idiotic toy'

    I came across this article which kinda defames Richie Hawtin, I find it quite stupid but then I was kinda angry when they referred the 3d midi fighter as an 'idiotic toy'.

    Clearly the writer has no idea about the 'toy', thought I would share with djtt community, I'm also not a fan of giving the site more traffic/attention, mods can feel free to delete the post if they think its a waste of time. I think these blogs just defame big names to generate more traffic, I commented there as 'chayan', but it won't show up cause its still under moderation.

    I also think the midi fighter 3d is a bit toyish. Some of the videos of people using it and waiving it about look daft.

    I really don't care about the midi fighter hardware is hardware. but as for Ritchie Hawtin..... Yea i do feel his music is boring and repetitive. He was one of the few artist that got 2 sets at EDC and well both sets were boring and lack luster. The guys in my crew think the same. We love music but shit is boring. Minimalist house haha wtf right

    I understand what you mean, and agree, but this might be because we aren't used to seeing such "instruments" being used expressively?
    A guitar player can sit calmly and play any song or style, so why wouldn't we call them silly for raising the neck in the air when hitting high notes, or slamming it down on the power chord? Same with horn players etc. Why can't controllerists play with expression and not have it look daft? I believe it's because it is just less familiar to us.
