NI Maschine Jam £299
Full Review: FM310
Jam is a great, creative controller in its own right, but it’s best used as a counterpoint to the existing Maschine hardware.
Akai Advance 49 | £399 Review FM293 Combined with Akai’s VIP software, the Advance controllers remove the disconnect between controller and DAW. NI Komplete Kontrol S61 | £539 Review FM285 A beautiful hardware and software package that just works. Now works with third-party plug-ins too.
Arturia MiniLab MkII | £89 Review: FM316 The Mk2 is only a subtle step on from the Mk1 hardware-wise but it’s a solid little controller, and worth the price for the included content alone.
Ableton Push 2 | £599 Review FM302 Push and Live were already a great combo, but version 9.5 and Push 2 raise the bar for one of the best hardware/ software experiences around.
