NEW FROM NAMM! Get your hands on the hottest new gear releases
Here's a quick round-up of the hottest hi-tech products announced at the NAMM Show last week, some of which are already available to buy or pre-order…
Novation Launchkeys from £99!
NOVATION LAUNCHKEYS
"This year's show was busier than ever," says our Sales Director Andy Legg, "but Novation's Launchkeys really stood out in terms of hi-tech releases. They combine the sequencer pads from the best-selling Launchpad with a solid controller keyboard (choose 25, 49 or 61 keys) and come with a load of software including Ableton Live Lite and the Launchpad & Launchkey iPad apps. Best thing? They start at a crazy £99!"

FOCUSRITE SCARLETT 18i20
"With their colourful paintjobs and award-winning preamps, the Scarletts have changed the interface world forever," says our Hi-Tech guru, Tim Way. "The 18i20 takes the concept even further with its 18 inputs, 20 outputs, eight onboard preamps and loads of control. And it's less than 400 quid!"

Nektar Panorama P1
NEKTAR PANORAMA P1
"The sleek looking Panorama P1 is deeply integrated with Cubase and Reason," says our mixer man Tom Osborne, "and it sits somewhere between a digital mixer and a control surface for your DAW and plug-ins. For less than £220, it boasts nine 45mm faders, 16 control knobs, sequence buttons and transport controls. Great!"

NEW INTERFACES
Tascam's new US-322 and US-366 USB interfaces have onboard digital mixers
M-Audio's M-Track, M-Track Plus and M-Track Quad cover all interface bases

NEW CONTROLLERS
• If you're after a compact controller keyboard, try the bright red Akai MAX25
• Full-size semi-weighted keyboard more your thing? The Alesis Q88 is the one for you

NEW RECORDING GEAR
