    Love it!

    I ordered the three fader version of the sparrow for writing dynamics as I compose some simple string parts. It’s awesome! Best purchase I’ve made in a while.

    Excellent Fader Controller!

    I came really, really close to not canceling my order for another brand of controller that was $374, probably the same one a lot of other people are talking about, that has the dial, faders, and knobs and you can magnetically snap the modules together!!! I'll be honest... I really needed the money for something else, so I canceled three days before it was going to ship. I believe it was that same night that I stumbled on The MIDI Maker on Etsy of all places. I couldn't believe my eyes and was even more shocked when I saw the prices! For $90 I got the exact thing I needed with no extra fluff or features that I don't need. This is absolutely perfect for what I wanted and it looks great too! I got the red one to give some contrast to my black desk, black monitors, black keyboard with, of course black and white keys... you get the idea... I wanted something bright to cheer things up a bit. What I really want for a desk is an ambrosia maple table, but they're so expensive, but I digress.

    This was actually, literally an answered prayer because I had been looking pretty intensely on forums, blogs, google searches etc. I think I must have looked at pretty much literally almost everything available. None of the big commercial sites carry anything basic like The MIDI Maker's controllers. If they did they would make a killing! Another controller I found was very similar but it wasn't completely enclosed, so I nixed that as an option. One from a guy in France was pretty cool with real solid hard wood case, but was pretty expensive at $300 for just three faders.

    It's so easy to use too! It's a minor annoyance of having to exit out of software, and disconnect MIDI devices, to be able to change the settings, but once they're set, you probably won't have to change them often. I did notice however that Studio One uses CC 1 for volume, whereas Dorico uses CC 7, so I do have to change the settings when I switch between the two apps. But I've pretty much decided I'm only going to use it with Studio One Pro and stick with notation for dynamics in Dorico which to me just makes more sense. But it was nice to see that it works with both apps.

    Not sure why it took me so long to find The MIDI Maker, but I'm glad I did... save me from an untimely purchase that would have been way expensive!

    Pretty Decent Fader Controller

    Well constructed, fader action is stable for the most part but there is some minor give and take and I would characterize it as a slight wobble. But I didn't expect perfection for $90 for a three fader Controller.

    Works as Claimed

    Just what I was looking for. Integrated nicely with Reaper and associated NI and Spitfire Orchestral Libraries. Great 100mm faders. Support there to hold me hand during some initial configuration instructions I needed.

    Alternative to the hype...

    I'm sure you've all seen the YouTube videos. Composers, product specialists, content creators all raving about this nifty little midi control surface that's the latest greatest piece of gear that we all need to own. I must confess that I did end up ordering one but was told that I may not get my order until May. It was then that the practical and frugal side of me came to my senses. $400 +/- for 3 faders and some buttons? Add another $100 for a dial? As our current Prez would say, "Come on Man!" I admit they look good but couldn't I find a better solution? That's when I stumbled or found my way to "The Midi Maker" website and found the "Sparrow". I placed an order for the 3 fader controller and got it within a week. I absolutely love it and plan to place another order for the 8 fader controller once I settle down into my new studio space. 100mm faders that feel great and more importantly a proprietor that's open to doing custom projects/designs. Best of all he's in the USA so we don't have to worry about customs, etc. So if you're going back and forth and worried about quality I can assure you that this product is great. I hope that we as a community of creatives will do everything we can do get the word out and tell everyone of the Sparrow.
