Pioneer DJ presents the RMX-1000
Pioneer will be releasing the RMX-1000 remix station, a three-in-one system comprising of editing software, innovative performance hardware and VST and AU plug-ins. The RMX-1000 allows DJs to produce new beats and sounds as well as trigger personalised samples on the fly.
The RMX-1000 serves up a combination of studio effects and beatboxes, with the added physicality of pro-DJ equipment. Performance interfaces from Pioneer’s flagship mixers and effectors – such as the DJM-2000’s Isolator FX, the DJM-900nexus’s X-Pad and the EFX-1000’s multiple FX chaining – have been evolved and brought together into one unit.
The RMX-1000 uses in-built DJ controls to manipulate several parameters in macro. Each effect has been designed to work in a totally unique way with the interface. While the unit is incredibly simple to operate, DJs can still create a totally unique sound with Pioneer’s remixbox editing software. remixbox allows DJs to customise the RMX-1000 hardware to their own performance style and load it up with their own banks of samples.
And, by saving their settings to an SD card, DJs can effectively take their own personalised DJ rig with them wherever they perform. Plus, Pioneer plans to upload internationally renowned DJs’ settings and samples to its website so DJs can give themselves a head start.
Using the RMX-1000 as a USB controller for the, included, RMX-1000 VST and AU plug-ins gives DJs the same hands-on feel they get with studio DJ mixes, potentially saving them from hours of editing. The unit can be used with mixers, CDJs with a PC/laptop.
The RMX-1000 will be available from May 2012 at a SRP of £599 including VAT.
