Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. Professional Sound and Visual Division today launched the REMIX-STATION 500, which enhances DJ performances with its ability to generate a range of sound effects with a variety of buttons and controls, all accessible at the user’s fingertips. The REMIX-STATION 500 offers three effect sections, Rhythm FX, Scene FX and Release FX, for simple musical arrangements and features the industry’s first “Pressure Controller” knobs, which further alter and vary the effects of the arrangements. In addition, the system can also act as a USB controller when used with the included VST1/AU2/RTAS3 RMX-500 Plug-in software.
“The Pioneer REMIX-STATION 500 can be added to virtually any DJ rig to give you the ability to insert a multitude of audio effects to the tracks you’re playing,” said David Arevalo, director of marketing, Professional Sound and Visual Division for Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. “Another cool feature on this device, the ‘Pressure Controller’ further enhances the effects giving you more creativity on the fly, so every performance with it is unique.”
Using the included REMIX-STATION 500 VST/AU/RTAS plug-in software, users can create the same types of music production and effects while producing on a computer. In addition, connecting the device to a computer enables it to act as a controller for music production.
The REMIX-STATION 500 will be available in February with a suggested retail price of $499. For a video demonstration of the product click here.
