    Something cheap just in case you end up not liking it, for my first I went with a Numark Total Control. A lot of people also like the numark mixtrack or mixtrack pro

    I think the S4 or S2 are great for a beginner because of the 1 to 1 integration with traktor. You pay a little more, but in the long run you'll spend less. If you don't like DJ'ing sell it.

    If you know you want to go with a controller, I'd follow that advice.

    I don't like all-in-one controllers, but it's because I don't feel like they provide enough control over routing or enough information about levels. But the whole world disagrees with me on that one.

    If I were building a beginner rig, I'd buy a basic 2 or 3 channel mixer, a sound card to match, and probably an X1 and a DN-SC2000. After the upgrade from Traktor LE to Pro, it'd be about the same cost as an S4 and give you one (or two) fewer channels but a lot more room to grow. And, really, beginners don't need 4 channels. It'll just confuse them.

    Yes but it is too expensive to go for all those things!

    Please tell me a controller for the biggest price 700 dolars!
