    Default Economic Player CD that can be used as a midi? Help!

    I'm close to buy a Pioneer DDJ SX, but also I want two CD players to use as midi controllers that be cheap (My first option are the Numark NDX400 although not midi, but I could spend a little more), so my questions are :

    1) Can I complement the four channels? I mean, you could use both of the sx as "a" and "b", and the two midi players as "c" and "d"
    2) If I use in that way (like midi), I'm almost certain that the USB input is disabled and the disk but, can anybody confirm me?
    3) If I buy the NDX400 (non midi), can I record via SX using it as external mixer using a computer?
    4) If I get the NDX400 (not midi), what happens if I put two channels of the SX in midi and the other two players in line?
    5) Can you recommend me another economic midi CD player?

    Thanks to any reply, Cheers!

    You can switch decks on the SX to control decks C and D.
    Thank you, but nope, i am not a beginner, i know that i can use two channels in a deck, but i want the cd players more as an "emergency" (I mean, for example if in a gig, the software fails, as happened me last time) but also that i can use it normally, and i prefer a controller because it have more functions that i can get in a normal mixer for a more affordable price.
    Thank you

    I don't get it. Why do you want a CD player and software?

    If you just want platters, get a Denon SC2000.
