Best suitable midi controller

#1

Hello everyone,

I have fully licensed VDMX.
I am using it for home made video production with only the easiest features like playing random video clips, airing some home made channel logos, IPMs (in program messages like upper/lower thirds) in the same time.
I’d like to know which midi controller is the most suitable for me to do these easy steps:

  • 1-hit-button for playling videos randomly (shuffle) from different media bins
  • buttons which are able to display/pause/start multiple upper/lower thirds while playling video clips

I hope I was clear in describing what I needed. :slight_smile:
If you don’t mind, please help me.

Thank you very much,
Andras

So many options out there at various price points.

This thread is a good start:

I’m using a Traktor Kontrol F1: https://www.native-instruments.com/en/products/traktor/dj-controllers/traktor-kontrol-f1/

Works brilliantly for my needs. I also have a few older FaderFox units that would do the trick. Lots of them on eBay as they have been around for a long time. The early ones need a MIDI interface, later ones connect via USB as they have a MIDI intraface building. Worth checking them out:
