Ableton and Midi Controllers?
The concept is how could you write electronic music on a computer without using a mouse.
Ableton furthered this concept with the release of the Push2 and Live 9.5 in Nov 2015. The Push2 has several improvements. One obvious addition is a colored screen instead of an LED screen. But the pads are more sensitive, the buttons are more recessed so it feels smoother to the touch, and the menus on the screen are just more intuitive to navigate.

However, since Ableton Live supports almost any MIDI controller on the market, that is more of an opinionated question. That’s like asking what is the best car? It depends.
It really depends on what your use is for it and your workflow. Are you looking for something more for production or for live performance? Also it’s very useful just to have a plain old piano keyboard around too.
