there's the behringer lc2412, it was about $150 USD and has 30 faders and 30 buttons which all send MIDI and DMX, or recieve MIDI (unmotorized) and convert to DMX (512 channels, but i dont know exactly what that means...you still need dimmer packs etc) . had to open it up and put some mineral oil on the faders to make them slide like a dj mixer, they were kind of slow by default but otherwise a decent deal if you dont mind stuff made in china and not totally "DIY"
