    Default Suitable Scratch Live midi controller?

    Hi guys, I'm sure that this has been discussed in great already on the forums somewhere but just in case, could someone recommend a good beginner midi controller for Scratch Live? I've only recently made the switch to digital and would love to start learning how to use the effects in Scratch Live. I have been looking at several units (Denon, Kontrol X1, Xone 1D) online, anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks a million!
    Stop it! No more thoughts of polar bears!

    I currently use an X1 with my Serato setup and would definitely recommend it not just for the FX section but for cues and loops aswell i'm also looking at the new Allen and Heath K2 to add alongside my X1 but that will be my third deck control in clubs with only 2 decks or to control the SP6.

    Not sure if its what you want, but the midi fighter pro super knob model is designed for use with serato.

    I use Dicers for ques and loops/rolls & an Akai LPD8 for efx. Sure its 2 units, but I like them both for different reasons. The X1's pads were too small for me to use for que's.

    I also used a Nano Pad (1st gen) before SSL added efx.

    My ideal SSL setup would be a Xone K2 for FX and clip launching via Ableton Bridge then some Dicers for cue points.

    I've been using SSL with a Denon DN-HC4500 controller successfully for 3 years. Highly recommended. Denon makes excellent equipment.
