NAMM 2014: The 2014 Winter NAMM Show may now be nothing but a memory, but the products that were launched there will stay on the agenda right through the year.

We saw new synths, controllers, software, guitars, amps, pedals and drum kits and DJ gear galore, all of which should be coming your way over the next few months.
