Pioneer DJ has unveils their new multi-effects unit, the Remix-Station 500. From DJ performance to music production, delivering music arrangement with intuitive control through two large knobs is what the pro djs need. Pioneer DJ is giving DJs and producers the most easy-to-use multi-effects unit yet, the entry-level REMIX-STATION 500. The lightweight box of tricks 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 parameters, such as five Audio FX, ten Scene FX, and the large Pressure Knobs.
The Remix Station allows you to twist the knob right/left to manipulate the wet/dry balance, and press it to modulate sub-parameters.
Rhythm FX – DJs can use the dedicated buttons to trigger five versatile drum samples each of which has six beat/sound variations that can be selected during live performance. Five Audio FX add another layer of manipulation, all controlled using the Pressure 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.
Scene FX – Gives DJs dedicated buttons and Pressure Knob to intuitively build the music up and break it down.. Each effect has two possible variations – four for Noise – that can be accessed by hitting the Customize button. And Echo+ adds extra echo for an even bigger sound and smoother mix.
Release FX – The Release FX buttons gives 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 Customize button.
The new RMX-500 by Pioneer will be available in February 2014.
