Here's my favourite new bit of kit. The NanoKontrol2 from Korg. Only £40, and a great set of transport controls and 8 channel faders. I'm still getting used to it, but already feels good and more intuitive than the keyboard shortcuts / on screen controls.
What's your favourite bit of studio kit at the moment and why? Feel free to post photos on the Facebook thread..
