Launchpad, maschine or kontrolpad?

Complete beginner looking to get into finger drumming towards the likes of Jeremy Ellis, Araab muzik and m4sonic

Mpc is a bit too pricey for me at the moment. But looking to get a nice piece of hardware to jam out to and play live on. I've been looking at maschine, novation launchpad, korg kontrolpad and mpk49.

All look like great hardwares I just need to know what are the main differences in between them and which one would be more suited towards my needs?

Responsive pads and pretty decent feel.
You get NI's DAW.
Good included sound libray with a host of expansions.

All the others are purely midi controllers.

Not used the others launchpad you will probably want to use with Ableton Live and more than just finger drumming.

Certainly pop down your lcoal store and demo, it's an insturment you are going to use and want to get to know a feel for.

Value for money and I am pretty sure you wont be dissapointed - my vote Maschine.
