Angels over Berlin

“Supreme gods, bless us so that calamities do not befall us. May there be peace and happiness, and long life, and may our descendants prosper and become notable, not through fortune or fame, but through love and deed. May our rice field flourish and our silkworm cultures thrive, may our works be blessed in your eyes. May evil spirits be banished, and ghostly auras be destroyed. Divine talismans hold something unfathomable, they settle eternally in the courtyard. Their tally miraculous. Numerous in the past, blessings impossible to put into words. May the gods protect us all our days. May Heaven, Earth, and Water guard all living things. May all constellations sustain and protect me. May all the seasons of the year, all hours of our day be free of disaster, innocent of harm. May the stars of good come, and the stars of evil disperse. . .”

A bit of history about this piece of hardware. Many computer Dj's complained about the console controller buttons being too small and fragile. DJ TECH TOOLS, company based out of San Francisco, heard these complaints and produced the MIDI FIGHTER. Ian Gold, the master mind behind the midi fighter, adopted the durable arcade buttons that took a heavy beating while playing street fighter and put it on these DJ consoles. Fast forward to today, Ian Gold hasn't stopped improving the original midi fighter, today the midi fighter 3D is built with high resolution motion sensors that are controlled across each axis of movement.
