    Hey

    well, i wanna buy a midi controller to use aditional features of traktor such as the effects and looping/sampling. i got a djx750 mixer, and thats not digital. so i need advice on what i should get. Something with buttons and knobs i guess...

    little more nfo would be nice...

    do you have an external soundcard, or does the controller need an integrated one?

    do you want jog wheels?

    do you want to mix 2 decks or 4, or do you just want something to control fx and looping?

    I can only say good things about the Denon sc2000, just pick up that and a soundcard and your sorted.

    S4 meh - I prefer my VCI 100 SE, especially if you're going to lug kit to a club.

    the real question is: how much can you spend?

    then base your choices off of that.

    Well that's because it's a great all in one solution . I bought mine and all I had to do was plug and play (and recalibrate)!
