Good generic controller
aftino 03.08.2018
I bought the Twister mainly to be able to control soft-synth parametres within Maschine live - as my controller for Maschine is the Mikro Mk2 - hence it lacks the hardware rotary encoders needed for me to be able to manipulate synth patches from Massive in real-time during a jam.

Hardware-wise, I can't fault it - it's of really really high quality - and durable to the extent that I've incorporated it into my live Maschine rig.

My gripe with it pertains to the software - it's really cumbersome, counterintuitive and not properly documented - hence initial setup does take a bit of tinkering.

Once you've got it going, though, it does go without a hitch - Maschine recognized it each time and has accurately mapped each Learn command to the Twister's encoders each and every time.

I would have expected - for the price, at least - that the software would have been a bit more frictionless.

If you use Traktor only in my opinion this is overated
Pigs are Flying 17.08.2021
I use a Traktor Z2, two X1;s and two F1's, in my opinion you can do everything this can with my combination,
It's not at all intuitive and has to be learnt, which of course you have to do with other controllers, but this is harder.Push the side buttons and it moves around.
I know a lot will not like my opinion, but my money could have been better spent on something else.
The build quality can't be faulted.

excellent
Anonymous 19.07.2014
I use the twister to control 1-2 instruments/channels/racks in ableton and it just works..


Pros:

- Very simple 1 color + 1 value per knob style makes it easy and fast to design midi/instrument mapping setups.

- Works great with Ableton live out of the box with the regular midi mapping mode (no scripts or m4l) and correctly displays the value coming from live as well.

- It stands firmly on slippy surfaces which not all medium/small sized controllers do.


Cons:

- The configuration software is a bit buggy, especially when modifying several knobs at once. It's just a bit tedious to work with at times, the end result is the same.

- On my unit one of the knobs has a slightly different twist resistance than the others but not enough to be a real problem. I guess that the resistance will even out after a few months of use.

Finally, just many knobs!
Aidar K 22.05.2021
Smart, but simple device. Finally, I found device with many knobs and nothing else.

They are not just knobs, actually, because it's a buttons too.

Very handy device in any studio. Build quality is good, everything works perfectly and immediate. You get slightly more than what you see but you don't to learn this device. Just twist!
