Our fave is the nanoPad with its 12 pads and XY controller. Check out a great video of James Zabiela using it with Traktor Pro, at Godskitchen, on Youtube. The nanoKontrol, with its nine faders, nine knobs and 18 switches, is equally handy for all sorts of performances.
And what's even cooler is that Korg have just released the new Black versions, so give them a shot. korg.co.uk
