The Korg controllers integrate flawlessly with reason. They're great quality as well. Of course the midi controller you want to get should be based on your needs (not sure exactly what they are). But generally all around you can't really go wrong with the korg kontrol.
But if you don't need all these options and things such as the pads you can get a basic controller with a more appealing pricetag. The Radiums from M-Audio have all the basic functions you would need for midi (sliders and such for automation) and they're pretty reliable.
I personally like the X-station by novation because it includes a whole package of useful things (including soundcard). I'm a fan of controllers from CME as well.
