looking to replace Korg Nanokontrol 2

  • Hi folks,

    i've been using my Nanokontrol 2 with Isadora for years, but its starting to fall apart so I'm looking for something to replace it. I kind of like the idea of the Nanokontrol Studio - more knobs + bluetooth option for when i run out of USB ports/need to go onto stage, etc. 
    does anyone here have experience of this device? 
    I'm also looking at the Novation Launch Control XL because its got lots more knobs. can anyone recommend this one?

    or any other ideas? i think compact and well-built is priority. sliders are essential. knobs are important. buttons are useful.

    I d go for a behringer x touch mini or extender cos motorized fader are so useful!

    Personally, I would also go with Motorized Faders.. I'm using a Presonus Faderport 8 (Faders) and a MIDIFighter Twister is I need any knobs with me on stage.

    But the Korg NanoKontrol Studio and Novation Launch Control XL are both fine machines. Used them both on shows, one that comes to mind where you hear a lot of people about is the AKAI APC40 MKII. Hear some great experiences with it.

     Also the German Faderfox pc12 and mx12 are nam nam, but also a bit expensive and not motorized, unfornately. But I like them a lot:)
