    I'm looking for a simple MIDI controller to use with Ableton. Ideally it would have like 8 non-infinite rotary knobs for making frequency/pitch sweeps and stuff. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Akai LPD 8 looks really good! Could do without the drum pads tbh, but it's a good price nonetheless. Thanks!

    Just a follow up for anyone else interested. Just got my LPD 8 and it works really well with Ableton. Definately happy with my purchase! Thanks again PiHkal and Sephira for the suggestions :Smile3:
