One of the emerging businesses today is the MIDI controllers because of the popularity of software being used in DJing and music production.

The Market is dominated by famous and big names, but Faderfox is different. They are independent and wanting to stay that way since the company launched. Are they ready to compete with the big companies now that they have their new sets of controllers?

They approach to performance is modular, one of the stand-out ideas of Faderfox. Each model is a stand alone performance tool  in its own right and area of specialty. Because of this two or more models can be combined to provide style depending on the user’s preference. All the controllers are assigned fully to any configuration.

The FT3 built and functionality is inspired by Traktor and Ableton. Most of the function came from Traktor while the configurations are based on both Traktor and Ableton meaning they can be easily accesed through simple-key press. It is a size of a paperback book but it manages to include unbelievable amounts of buttons and faders.

Each model is consists of nine pots, four up-faders, a crossfader and twenty buttons. One of the buttons is shift mode, it makes other buttons two or more function.

All the buttons, faders and pots are well built as well as the unit’s fascia and housing. Since the device is small in size there are no other unnecessarily design additions.

Bottomline is this tiny box is already comprehensive than what it looks like. It is solid and reliable and very portable. Worth every penny in terms of built quality and functionality.

Buying into Fadefox is more than just a controller though, these devices somehow speak to you a little bit more than some of the other brand options out there. They appeal to the enthusiast in all of us, and that is a quality natural to all DJs by their very nature.

    Great quality intel for your readers. I’ve learned something new and although I’m not in the music biz you almost had me sold! I do know some rising stars in the business and will pass this information on to them. Knowledge for them and coverage for you – win/win! I really liked the fact this post was short and to the point. I was informed without being led to boredom. Congratulations on a well written post.

    There is a way to do it just in ableton. The way I do it is I run my sdrnocaud to a channel on my DJ mixer. Then I go through each track and find the loudest section of the track, and turn the volume up of the clip until the mixer channel on my DJ mixer is just hitting the reds. You also want to make sure you are not in the reds on ableton. If you are, just turn the gain up on the DJ mixers channel and turn the clip volume down. Then do this for every track and all of your gains will be exactly the same.
