Alternatives to Novation Impulse for Cubase 9

I’ve had the Novation Impulse 61 for a few years but always had a few problems with it. Every so often the LCD screen would go on the blink ie stop working for a few weeks at a time. I never succeeded in usefully integrating it with Cubase. Lately the pitch bend control has stopped working. So I’m looking for an alternative to it. I’ve been looking at the Nektar Panorama P6 and the Akai MPK 261. I’d like something that works well with Cubase 9. Any suggestions?

Sorry I can’t help - but I would be interested to know what you decided on, and why.
