    I'm just starting out with producing techno and really enjoying it. I'm using Cubase Pro 10 as my DAW and looking for some advice on expansion in terms of hardware. I'm looking for some advice on MIDI controllers and hardware synths etc that have a fairly plug-and-play workflow with my DAW and that can help stimulate creativity away from pointing and clicking with a mouse.

    Cheers in advance for any help!

    Moog sub37 synth and it comes with a VST editor. Doesn't get much more straightforward.

    I can only sugeest you using good distortion/ reverb
    for the hardware I think it was the best hardware for it's price Behringer Model D
    and for the effect

    (if you can find batter distortions effect hardware I will pay you money )

    Nice suggestions so far. Gear I hadn't thought of yet! Anything on the more budget friendly end would be good too if there is anything half decent (like the Behringer Model D) :)

    Synth: Moog, Prophet.
