The twitch has an Aux input so you'd be able to use this to plug the CDJ in, however I don't think you can assign it to a crossfader channel (I may be wrong on this, just speaking from my own experience).

Hi Jeff,

You will be able to play your Pioneer CDJ through the Twitch but as rated suggests, you won't be able to control it with the Twitch.

You should connect the CDJ to the Aux input on the back of the Twitch and use the Aux level and on/off button on the Twitch to add it to your mix.

I hope this helps!
