after an initial test, I wanted to share my partly positive experience with this MIDI controller, using it with PyraMIDI.
It’s a very well-build device with a clear interface, endless rotary controllers and clear leds indicating the position of the encoder and button values.
Very easy to program and customize as well, but could be improved though (buttons are only MAX or MIN values, not possible to program something in between, damn).
It could extend the live possibilities of the Pyramid as a live looper / sequencer, making life a lot easier already by being able to select tracks while staying in LIVE or SEQ mode for example.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to be able to program CC values to the buttons! So track SOLOING and SELECTING is impossible right now, as Pyramidi is using CC values (of the same CC number) between 0 and 127 for this.
Damn, I just thought I finally had found the ideal solution for my LIVE troubles, reducing the need to switch modes on the pyramid while live performing, and being confused by that al the time.
Another positive thing of the MF Twister: it’s not taking that much space (half the width of the Pyramid).
And one other thing to keep in mind though: it has only MIDI over USB, so no DIN ports!!
I have the MIDI fighter connected together with my PYRAMID to the USB HOST jack of my MIO MIDI interface (via a powered USB hub), routing the MIDI fighter in the MIO software directly to the Pyramid.
Works like a charm, but very stupid it’s not working with CC values, that’s the only thing that should be improved…
Maybe someone might be helped with this.
