    I want to buy a Midi DJ controller for playing out at raves and practicing at home...
    I want it to come with an integrated soundcard in it and my budget isn't further from 200€ (I was having doubts of buying Reason 5... 305€)...

    Anyway, my real point is to be able to play out with just a laptop and the controller

    saw this one: http://www.thomann.de/es/numark_mixtrack_pro.htm

    but... any advice on that would be great... sorry for posting it here, but it's to mix my own productions! :p

    What about this:

    http://www.dv247.com/dj-equipment/vestax-typhoon--71385

    This has it all and it's a nice price (It works out at about 240.87euro's, which is a little over your budget, but this does it all). Plus it looks quite cool :D

    This is the DJ controller I'd like :)

    I found this one a while ago because I was looking for exactly what you were! Cheap DJ Controllers with built in interfaces can be hard to find and most that do have a built in interface cost a lot of money, so I think this one is good value :)

    Unfortunately i never had the money to be able to afford it, so I can't tell you what the build quality is like, but Vestax are usually quite good and it looks pretty decent. Maybe try looking for one in a shop and see if you can demo it?

    Another alternative is the Hercules MK4: http://www.dv247.com/dj-equipment/hercules-dj-console-mk4--71562

    That ones cheaper, but it is really small.

    save up a little more, go for a Vestax VCI 300 w/ITCH or a Kontact Kontrol S4 w/Traktor Pro. That is what i'm doing.

    The value comes in the software.
