Scene FX section makes creating perfect buildups and breakdowns effortless

Good remixes live and die by their buildups and breakdowns, so it's no wonder that Pioneer DJ built their RMX-500 with a major emphasis on perfectly executing these techniques. In fact, its Scene FX section is broken down into five additive buildup effects and five subtractive breakdown effects - each with its own dedication selection button. A single large knob lets you tweak your effects on the fly. This makes it easy to dial in your RMX-500's effects, without stumbling through confusing submenus or digging into unnecessarily complex details.

Add to the excitement with Rhythm Effects

The RMX-500's Rhythm Effects section makes it easy and intuitive to chop, slice, and dice your music and add to the excitement you've created with Scene Effects. With audio effects at the top, and a drum machine at the bottom, Rhythm Effects lets you control beat timing on both simultaneously with the Pressure Controller knob in the middle. Use the audio effects to chop, loop, delay, or offset your music with the Roll, Trans, Add, Reverse Delay, and Offset buttons. The RMX-500 makes it easier than ever to achieve professional remix results.

VST/AU/RTAS plug-in software lets you easily integrate your effects into your DAW

Naturally, Pioneer DJ built the RMX-500 remix station to fit comfortably into your live rig, making it a killer on-the-fly effects engine. Many of the DJs here at Sweetwater have home studios, and appreciate that the RMX-500 sports advanced USB connectivity that gives them even greater flexibility when they take it into the studio.

In addition to providing a sample-accurate lock to the beat, this also lets you automate parameters, making it easier than ever to create complex and dynamic effects.

The selection of DJ-ready effects out there is limited to the Pioneer RMX and Korg Kaoss pads. The former being the industry standard with their RMX-1000 offering. I have previously owned the RMX-1000 and although did the trick, I find the RMX-500 much more suited for the type of music I play (mostly house of different types). The configuration I use with a Xone 92 in send/return mode provides maximum control of the effect return and sends and allows for effects that blend with the music and dont sound too in your face and over exaggerated. The feature to push down on the control knobs to add a little sizzle in the form of timed echos is very nice.. All in all could not be happier with this unit. It does EFX and moves out of the way when I need it to. Solid.

The RMX-500 allows me to create simple rhythms, adjust meter, create wildly random effects (that are still in time with my rhythms), reverse the sounds of them in real time, add rolls, offset time... and tons more. It's so much more than just an effects unit!
