Release the pressure: Pioneer DJ launches the REMIX STATION 500
effects unit

– with instinctive, one-handed control of multiple parameters


Pioneer DJ is launching the most easy-to-use
multi-effects unit yet: the engaging REMIX STATION 500 (RMX-500).
The lightweight effector takes some of the best features from the
top-flight RMX-1000, but gains a more simplified layout, on-board
customisation, and ingenious one-handed control of multiple

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 RMX-1000, the effector can also be used
in the studio as a controller for RMX-500 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


  1. 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. 

  1. 2.     Simple layout designed for instant access to all the unit’s

The RMX-500 is divided into three easy-to-use areas, with dedicated
buttons giving direct access 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.

  1. 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
  1. 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.

  1. 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
