Pioneer Introduces The RMX-1000 Remix Station


Pioneer today launched the RMX-1000 Remix Station, a device for enhancing DJ performances with its ability to create and add a variety of remix effects, as well as rhythmic sampling capabilities.

The RMX-1000 incorporates four remixing functions: Isolate FX, Scene FX, X-Pad FX and Release FX for simple musical arrangements, all accessible at the user's fingertips. The device includes Pioneer's remixbox editing software to enable users to customize almost every function and feature of the unit. The system can also act as a USB controller when used with the included VST/AU RMX-1000 Plug-in software.

"The RMX-1000 isn?t your typical effector or sampler. It allows you to mix in multiple unique remix effects that can be manipulated with whatever music is playing," said David Arevalo, senior marketing manager, Professional Sound and Visual Division for Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. "By adding multiple beat-synced effects and original rhythmic samples, the only limitation is your own creativity to unleash the ultimate remix on the fly in real-time."

Four sections of the device are arranged with knobs and buttons that control multiple effect parameters.

In the Scene FX section, users can choose between five Build Up effects and five Break Down effects. The Build Up effects, consisting of BPF ECHO, ECHO, NOISE, SPIRAL UP and REVERB UP, add sounds, while Break Down effects, consisting of HPF ECHO, LPF ECHO, CRUSH ECHO, SPIRAL DOWN and REVERB DOWN, cut sounds. A large knob increases or decreases the parameter of effects chosen by simply turning the knob. Two sub-parameters knobs are also available for additional changes to the effects being produced.

The Isolate FX section, consisting of three individual knobs, processes the low, mid and high frequency bands of the music passing through. The section is loaded with three effects in addition to an Isolator, providing rhythm patterns, timbre, etc., letting users freely modify the output for the HI/MID/LOW frequency bands. In addition to the Isolator, three additional effects in the section are available including CUT/ADD, TRANS/ROLL and GATE/DRIVE.

The device also features a touchpad section called the X-PAD FX that enables users to develop and add new sounds not found in the original music. In addition to its four built-in audio samples, KICK, SNARE, CLAP and HI HAT, other audio samples edited in Pioneer's remixbox software can be loaded using an SD card during DJ play.

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

Using the included RMX-1000Plugin VST/AU1 plug-in software, users can create the same type of music production and effects while DJing on a computer. In addition, connecting the device to a computer enables it to act as a controller for music production.

Othe features include the QUANTIZE function, which enables real-time music analysis and synchronization of effects along with the beat of the music, a new AUTO BPM function, which automatically measures and follows the tempo of music as well as a USB-MIDI for use as a MIDI controller.

The RMX-1000 will be available in May with a suggested retail price of $999.
