Here are some of the very cool Novation controllers JES is using, with links to the tech info

Novation midi controllerLAUNCHPAD The Ableton Live Controller, Jointly designed by Ableton and Novation, Launchpad places Ableton Live at your fingertips. Whether you’re a DJ, performing musician or studio producer, Launchpad gives you all you need to truly ‘play’ Live. With a multi-colour 64-button grid and dedicated scene launch buttons, Launchpad is purpose built for triggering and manipulating clips in Live, it also offers a totally new way of controlling Ableton Live’s mixer. Launchpad’s buttons can be used to sketch out beats with drum racks, and they can be assigned to other functions in Live using Ableton’s ‘Learn’ mode.

 

Novation Midi controller NOCTURN Plug-in Controller, Nocturn gives you instant hands-on control of your plug-in instruments and FX. Nocturn comes with Novation’s Automap control software, which allows you to take instant control of your plug-ins by just clicking on your software and touching a knob or button!

 

Novation midi keyboard25 SL MK II SL Mk II has been designed to give you complete control over your music making software. We have worked with each of the main DAW manufacturers to make sure each of the 56 knobs, faders and buttons control the things in your software that you need them to control. However, the really clever bit is that SL MkII can directly control your plug-in instruments and FX (you also get an Italian made, semi-weighted keyboard mechanism).
