Three keyboards make up Future Music magazine's best keyboards of 2015.  The Nord Electro 5 takes the winners title with the Nord Stage 2 EX also included.

On the Nord Electro 5, “Nord’s Electro range continues to do a excellent job of balancing flexibility with affordability.  The various piano, EP, clav and organ sounds onboard are hard to beat for authenticity and playability.  A smart interface and impressive range of effects make this latest Electro range true player’s instruments”.

The new AKG K181DJ Ultimate Edition headphones are also included with the AKG C314 multi-pattern condenser microphone taking the title of ‘best microphone’.

On the AKG C314, “This latest multi-pattern, are diaphragm condenser mic from AKG comes in at over £200 less than their top-end C414 XLS, but still features the same excellent build and sound quality.  It’s versatile and affordable enough that a matched pair remains within reach of smaller studios and solo producers”.

The ground-breaking ROLI Seaboard RISE is also included in the 'best controllers and sequencers’ category.

The full feature can be found in the January 2016 issue of Future Music magazine on sale now.
