Shawn Wasabi is not only a masterful finger drummer, he is also phenomenal at creating mashups. In ‘Marble Soda,’ you hear a mashup of over 150 songs combined into one seamless original musical piece. The mashup is performed on a MIDI Fighter 64, which is a button controller used to trigger different samples. The controller only has 64 buttons but Wasabi uses four buttons at the bottom to trigger banks that will switch all the samples on the remaining 60 buttons. So, potentially he has 60×4 possible locations for samples. The light patterns are used to add to the visual effects that is specifically programmed for this performance. Check it out.
