Dj P#rn: Pioneer Dj – Remix Station 500

Continueing on the Pioneer vibe, alongside the news of Pioneers flagship controller, the DDJ-SZ, Pioneer came out with a new companion to the RMX-1000 – the RMX500.

This mini me comes packed with Rhythm & Scene FX and packs all you would ever need for a gig  (or mix). check out what Pioneer has to say:

OVERVIEW

The REMIX STATION 500 offers three effect sections, Rhythm FX, Scene FX and Release FX, for simple musical arrangements and features the industry’s first “Pressure Controller” knobs, which further alter and vary the effects of the arrangements. In addition, the system can also act as a USB controller when used with the included VST1/AU2/RTAS3RMX-500 Plug-in software.

RHYTHM FX

The Rhythm FX section of the REMIX STATION 500 offers five audio effects, ROLL, TRANS, ADD, REV DELAY, and OFFSET, which cuts up and manipulates parts of the music playing to produce new rhythms. The effects can be increased and decreased with a turn of the large knob as well as altered when the knob is pushed down, activating the pressure controller.

The Rhythm FX section also incorporates five Instrument buttons (KICK, SNARE, CLAP, HI HAT and CYMBAL), each offering six different patterns of sound that can be added with a simple touch. The unit also features a 4-Beat Sequencer with an OVER DUB button, and when activated, enables users to record one bar of each instrument button for more unique sound effects playback. The OVER DUB can also be deactivated after the recording process and while playback occurs, to then give users the ability to tap each button for additional instrument sounds.

SCENE FX

In the Scene FX section, users can choose from five Build Up effects and five Break Down effects. The Build Up effects, consisting of MOD, ECHO, NOISE, SPIRAL UP and REVERB UP, add sounds, while Break Down effects, consisting of HPF, LPF, ZIP, SPIRAL DOWN and REVERB DOWN, cut sounds. The large knob increases or decreases the parameters of the chosen effect with a simple turn as well as changes the effects with a push of the knob. Two sub-parameters knobs are also available for additional changes to the effects being produced.

 

RELEASE FX

The system also includes a Release FX button that eliminates the current music playing and leaves only the sound effects when activated. Release FX can also be used to create the opposite effect: When the button is disengaged, all section effects are eliminated while the original music continues to play. Three types of Release FX are available, Vinyl Brake, Echo, and Back Spin.

PLUG-IN SOFTWARE

Using the included REMIX-STATION 500 VST/AU/RTAS plug-in software, users can create the same types of music production and effects while producing on a computer. In addition, connecting the device to a computer enables it to act as a controller for music production.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

  • QUANTIZE function enables real-time music analysis and synchronization of effects along with the beat of the music
  • AUTO BPM function automatically measures and follows the tempo of music
  • Compact design for easy portability and convenience
  • USB-MIDI for use as a MIDI controller
