Features

This unit is a remix station for DJs consisting of three effect sections. The [PRESSURE] controllers newly adopted for the RHYTHM FX and SCENE FX sections allow effects to be adjusted not only by turning the controller as before, but also according to the strength with which the controller is pressed in.

Furthermore, the internal effect type can be switched to achieve highly individualistic DJ remixing performances with more intuitive operation than ever before.

The “RMX-500 Plug-in“ Plug-in software allows this unit to be operated on music creation applications. In addition, by connecting this unit to a computer, this unit can be used as a controller to create music with the same feeling as when conducting a DJ performance.

RHYTHM FX

New rhythms can be created by cutting up the currently playing track or adding internal sound sources.

Effects and internal drum sound sources can be used for loop playback with a variety of rhythms.

SCENE FX

The currently playing track can be emphasized or breaks can be created at any position to produce new developments for tracks.

Effects and echoes can be combined to achieve unique renderings.

RELEASE FX

Effect sounds can be blended smoothly with the currently playing track.

QUANTIZE

The beat positions of tracks are analyzed in real time and the effects and the timing for producing the sound are adjusted automatically. The sound is played in tempo with the track, even when buttons are operated roughly.

RMX-500 Plug-in

A VST/AU/RTAS Plug-in letting you launch the functions of this unit on a computer is provided. With it, the RMX-500 can be used as a controller.

SOUND CARD

This unit is equipped with “sound card/USB audio interface”.

1 AUTO button

Switches the BPM measurement mode.

[AUTO]: The BPM is measured automatically from the audio signal that is being input. The [AUTO] mode is set when this unit’s power is turned on.

[TAP]: The BPM is input manually by tapping the [TAP] button with a finger.

!The [AUTO] BPM measurement range is BPM = 70 to 180. With some tracks it may not be possible to measure the BPM correctly. If the BPM cannot be measured, the BPM value on the display flashes. In such cases, use the [TAP] button to input the

BPM manually.

Inputting the BPM manually

Tap the [TAP] button at least 2 times in rhythm with the beat (in quarter notes) of the sound being played.

The interval at which the [TAP] button was tapped is set as the BPM.

!The BPM can be set manually in units of 1 by pressing a [NUDGE (+, –)] button while pressing the [TAP] button.

!The BPM can be set manually in units of 0.1 by pressing the [AUTO] button while pressing the [TAP] button, then pressing a [NUDGE (+, –)] button while pressing the two buttons.

2 BPM display

When the BPM measurement mode is set to auto, this displays the automatically detected BPM value. If the value cannot be detected, the previously detected BPM value flashes.

When the BPM measurement mode is set to manual, this displays the manually input BPM value.

3 TAP button

Tap the button with a finger to input the BPM manually.

4 NUDGE (+, –) button

These fine-adjust the cycle and the timing for producing the sound of internal sound sources, etc.
