Default Channel Strip / Mixer Type Interface

I'm looking for recommendations on a low track count (between 1-4) mixer that interfaces with Pro Tools and records the automation for pans, faders, EQ. I have a hell of a time doing it with a mouse; way too time consuming compared to a simple twist of a knob.
Want to keep this cheap. I'd assume that the quality of these things is just a matter of the parts used n how fluid they move. One channel is sufficient, but if the cost isn't drastic, 2 or 4 would be ideal.

I picked up a new in-box Command|8 on eBay for $175 a few months ago. That's 8 channels.

Let's get terminology squared away. What you want(I think) is a "control surface". A "mixer" conjures up visions of Mackie 1604's and such Indeed, the Command8 is a viable controller, BUT it is old and may not have much future when it comes to compatibility. I would look at the Presonus Faderport 8 as a serious contender. A used Avid Artist MIX is another(but usually higher priced).
