Product Description

Pioneer RMX-500 Portable Remix Station

DJkit is excited to introduce the RMX-500. The most easy to use multi effects unit on the market, with ingenious features inherited from the Pioneer RMX-1000 and a simplified, one handed control unit.

Pioneer have designed the RMX-500 with simplicity in mind and so the system is divided into three areas with clear buttons dedicated to a host of creative features.

Although the Pioneer RMX-500 is simple, it is still very versatile. The system is fitted with customise buttons which allow DJs to edit the hardware directly without the hassle of software. DJs can easily edit sounds and settings, Scene FX, backspins, brakes and echo for optimum creativity and individuality within sets. The RMX-500 is also a VST/AU/RTAS control meaning that this versatile system can also be used in the studio for production and practice.

An exciting new feature of the RMX-500 is the large pressure controller knobs that provide DJs with multi-dimensional manipulation with the use of just one hand. Once an effect has been selected, DJs can simply twist the knob to manipulate wet/dry balance and tap it to modulate sub-parameters. The pressure controller knobs alongside innovative features such as the ten auto-quantise Scene FX give DJs the power to intuitively build tracks up using noise, echo, mod and many more effects. And the ECHO+ builds upon echo for even smoother sounds and mixes. All of these instinctive controllers encourage intuitive creativity and performance.

In addition to these interesting effects, the Pioneer RMX-500 is also fitted with an easy-to-use rhythm FX section, featuring Kick, Snare, Clap, Hi Hat and Cymbal. On top of this the new Overdub button that allows DJs to create their own beats and rhythm FX combinations spontaneously on the night, whilst Signal Flow enables mixers to add Rhythm FX to Scene FX in play. And if this did not make mixing and editing simple enough, the Pioneer RMX-500 has been fitted with handy Release FX buttons that give DJs easy access to brakes, echo and backspin, allowing DJs to exit complex effect combinations with natural style.

The Pioneer RMX-500 is the ideal lightweight mixer for those looking for creativity within the boundaries of simplicity. 



Technical Specs

The RMX-500 puts dedicated buttons for five drum samples, five Audio FX and ten Scene FX at DJs’ fingertips. Then they simply rotate the large Pressure Controller knobs – one for Rhythm FX and one for Scene FX – to manipulate FX depth, and press to control sub-parameters – all in one intuitive movement. The new Customise button adds even more choice, enabling DJs to quickly select and save their preferred variations of Scene FX and drum samples. Also new is the Rhythm FX section, which provides a simple way to access the Audio FX and Overdub sequencer. Plus the RMX-500 introduces a Signal Flow button, which gives DJs the option to instantly add Scene FX to Rhythm FX. Like the club-standard RMX1000, the effector can also be used in the studio as a controller for RMX500 VST/AU/RTAS virtual plug-ins. An on-board sound card means producers can plug their headphones in to the RMX-500 for high-quality audio as they create music or master DJ sets. The small and portable RMX-500 has RCA inputs for easy connection to all CDJs in the range; DJs could even add one to each CDJ in their set-up.

1.Unique Pressure Controller knobs give simultaneous control of multiple parameters Two large, Pressure Controller knobs give DJs access to multi-dimensional manipulation with just one hand. Once an effect or drum sample has been triggered, they can simply twist the knob right/left to manipulate the wet/dry balance, and press it to modulate sub-parameters. Multi-layered FX are made easier and more accessible for unlimited creativity.
2. Simple layout designed for instant access to all the unit’s features The RMX-500 is divided into three easy-to-use areas, with dedicated buttons giving directaccess to a host of features:
Ten auto-quantized Scene FX
Dedicated buttons and Pressure Controller knobs give DJs the power to intuitively build
the music up using Mod, Echo, Noise, Spiral Up and Reverb Up, and break it down with
High Pass Filter, Low Pass Filter, Zip Spiral Down and Reverb Down. Each effect has
two possible variations – four for Noise – that can be accessed by hitting the Customise
button. And Echo+ adds extra echo for an even bigger sound and smoother mix.
New Rhythm FX with five drum samples and five Audio FX
The RMX-1000’s X-Pad has been replaced with an easier-to-use Rhythm FX section. DJs
can use the dedicated buttons to trigger five versatile drum samples – Kick, Snare, Clap,
Hi Hat, Cymbal – each of which has six beat/sound variations that can be selected during
live performance. Five Audio FX – Roll, Trans, Add,
Rev Delay, Offset add another layer of manipulation, all controlled using the Pressure Controller knobs. The Overdub button
enables DJs to sequence their own beats and Rhythm FX combinations on the fly, while
the Signal Flow changes the flow of the music to enable DJs to add Scene FX to the
Rhythm FX in play; or slice, dice and repeat processed audio from the Scene FX in the
opposite direction.
Three handy Release FX buttons
The Release FX buttons have been moved to the centre of the RMX-500, giving DJs
easier access to back spins, brakes and echo, helping them exit complex effect
combinations in style. The length and interval of each effect can be changed using the
Customise button.
3. Customise button enables on-the-fly changes to settings The RMX-500 can be customised directly on the hardware, with no need to plug into software on a computer.
Selected sounds and settings are automatically stored for next time when the unit is not in use. DJs can customise to:
Select preferred Scene FX
Select from six drum sample variations per sound
Set the lengths of back spins, brakes and echo
Change Overdub length between 4 and 8 beats
4. VST/AU/RTAS control and sound card bring a physical element to producing In addition to live performances, the versatile RMX can be used in the studio for producing music and mastering DJ sets. Producers simply plug the unit into a computer to control a virtual RMX-500 VST/AU/RTAS plug-in – without using the mouse or keyboard – and run virtual instances on as many channels as their processor can handle. Plus an on-board sound card and stereo jack provide a high-quality audio output for their headphones or speakers.
5. Other features
Auto BPM: automatically measures and follows the music’s tempo MIDI support: can be used as a MIDI controller Compact and sleek design: highly portable for DJs on the move X-Stand: can be mounted on the portable Pioneer T-U101 stand (sold separately)

With this work with a DDJ-800 controller.. I'm assuming, it'll work on a RCA pass thru type basis from the master out.. but what if you want to hook up to PA via XLR at some point..

where does the RMX plug into, as it doesn't mention it in the write up, many thanks paul lewis.
lewis_paul5 asked 5 years ago
The rmx has a rca in and out so can go into any audio out. If you have a controller you can plug it into the rmx from the master out into the in section and then the out section goes to the pa unit or speakers. On a normal mixer like a dim800 they is a send and return so can go into that. But you will need a rca to jack lead x 4
