Midi controllers with buttons only?

Looking for a compact midi controller with no pads, keys, potis, faders etc. but with (ideally 8 or 16) user programmable buttons.

A few years ago, I used a wireless num-pad and KeyRemap4MacBook, so I could map important key shortcuts to an independent, wireless device and so could control my DAW from anywhere within my studio. A compromise tranzport if you want.

This can be an alternative again, now... however, I first want to see if there's anything in the midi world that I could use for Ableton's midi learn thingy.

Ah, I have the nanoKontrol already, will try it out with the user functionality, never thought about this before.

BUT

The 2nd ones you posted are damn hot.

You can customise them at order time. I don't really need one but they're on my list.. maybe I can pretend I need one to dedicate to one of my samplers..

Would be a great solution if I was any electro-DIY-savvy. I'm clearly not

I'm fine with the NanoKontrol at the moment...
also, I noticed some stuff I wanted to midi-map can't be done in Ableton, so I need less buttons in the end.

NanoKontrol does the job for now, thanks again for the hint, offki!
