This is the third time that I’m buying from The MIDI Maker store!
The controllers are working well and the fader moves smoothly. the service is above and beyond expectations
Man... you rock
I love my new Sparrow. It’s simple, well-made, and does just what I need. FYI, this absolutely does work as a MIDI cc controller in Pro Tools (at least on Mac). I am using it to control Mod Wheel, Expression, and two custom cc’s (attack & vibrato) in NI Symphonic Series virtual instruments, instantiated as plug-ins within Pro Tools. It works perfectly. It will NOT, however, work as a Pro Tools peripheral as the website says, at least not without jumping through a lot of hoops.
For the longest time I searched for an affordable option, offering at least a decent build and 3 faders, but they had to be 100mm.
As most know, it doesn't exist, not that I could find anyway.
I currently live in Australia and once ordered it took only 3 weeks to arrive on my doorstep-yes, I was excited, yet, hopeful the device would meet my expectations.
The midi editor software works flawlessly and the unit is a thrill to use - love, love the faders! Although it is a 3D printed case, it certainly is sturdy enough and I'm certain it will last for years.
I selected the USB-C option and was surprised, and delighted, that the cord is so long, not to mention it isn't that cheap plastic cord, it's a woven material -nice touch! If considering this unit, be it 3 or more faders, just do it, they are terrific!
I thank the maker and will probably purchase an 8 slider unit in the future.
An exceptional piece of gear every orchestral composer should own!
I live in Italy. I haven't received your parcel yet. on 22/07/2023 it seemed to have arrived in Italy. but now the UPS tracking gives it back to the USA. Edison, NJ. I don't know what could have happened. i hope for the best. I will post my review as soon as I receive it. Andrea Canino.
Great little MIDI fader. I have no issues supporting a small shop for a little premium, and the orange looks twice as good in person.
I absolutely love this controller! The faders feel great and have more than enough physical length to feel like you have all the control you’d ever need.. A simple, beautiful thing. I feel lucky to have found out about these. I have EXACTLY what I’ve been needing for about a year now and for a third of the price as a few of the other controllers I’ve seen marketed.
The Sparrow checks all my boxes.
3 100 mm sliders.
I am happy with my purchase.
Very satisfied. Thrilled. Order was prompt, the module works great, everything I wanted. Good luck to this company, doing great work.
Works perfectly. Just what I needed. Thank you!
First, I would give it 10000 stars if I could. It is literally one of a kind in the world. I could not find a unit with 100mm faders other then on big super expensive equipment with ton of features that I don't need. And the fact its mobile is mind blowing. It feels amazing and "playing" modulations on these
Now for the "but". Unfortunately my unit was missing 3 out of the 4 rubber anti slip on the bottom. So as it was, it was basically unusable - Each time you push one of the faders the whole thing moves on most of the surfaces, and even worse, moves to the side because there is 1 rubber stripe holding on.
I ended up hacking some rubber stickers I got in a local store but its not perfect.
A bit annoying. But yea I do understand its made by (probably) one person and the benefit of this thing is so huge, its still worth every penny and is one of the most valuable pieces of hardware in my setup
It´s great! love it!
Looks good. Feels good. Works good. And the company is a good boutique one as well. What’s not to like?
My Sparrow 4x100mm MIDI controller is the perfect size and perfect functions. I have it set up with the 4 cc functions that I use the most. I highly recommend this MIDI controller!!
Simple but efficient, 100mm is extremely useful for orchestral automation writing. For Studio One user, add Sparrow as "New Keyboard” for instant use. Looking forward for 3 x 3 Knob or 4 x 4 knob in the future!
Slides give a precised nuance respond
The Sparrow Midi Controller has greatly improved my workflow by allowing me to add expression to my music easily. It’s just what I’ve been looking for. Super easy to set up and change. I went with the Sparrow 5, I set up the first three faders as my meat and potatoes CC# 1,11, and 7 and used the last two faders to help with whatever I need for the project I’m working on. Super happy to support small businesses making innovative products.
Sparrow 3x100mm MIDI controller
I was searching for weeks for a bare-bones slider controller. I score orchestral music, and while my midi keyboard has a mod wheel and sliders, I wanted a dedicated controller for dynamics, expression, etc, and sliders with more travel. The sliders on this controller are great and I love how minimalist it is. Highly recommend for anyone making orchestral music or who likes to use sliders for ADSR!
I use Sparrow 4x100mm for control my VST midi mocup project in Cubase it just amazing ! highly recommend especially for people who are orchestral composer
Amazing, the only small midi fader I could find and it works like a charm!
I'm very pleased with my purchase of the Sparrow 3x100 controller. It's working great with my DAW (Studio One). The faders operate smoothly and the long throw allows good control over the CC data being transmitted. Lastly, The Midi Editor is a breeze to use if you need to re-assign the CC parameters. Well done! (My only minor issue is in regard to using the Chat feature to contact customer support; sometimes it was difficult to get a timely response.)
Great quality, priced right, International shipping, and works great! No brainer purchase for those needing the flexibility and simplicity of a dedicated fader box. Can’t recommend enough!
I bought this from seeing it in several other composers studio and after using it for a while I think it’s absolutely fantastic.
It’s easy to customize in the in-browser editor, feels solid and the faders are great.
Can absolutely recommend this.
