Pioneer have put out details on a forthcoming remix station: the RMX-1000.
The system is made up of a hardware unit, editing software and a VST/AU plug-in. RMX-1000 is essentially an FX box and sampler, mapped design-wise for ease of use in club environments. The unit brings together features from other Pioneer DJ gear, which includes the Isolator from the DJM-2000 and the X-Pad from the DJM-900nexus, housed amid four main sections on the front panel—Scene FX, Isolator FX, X-Pad and Release FX. A key feature of the RMX-1000 centres on customization: all parameters can be modified using the remixbox software then saved to an SD card, while Pioneer has said they will later make available settings from some of brand ambassadors like James Zabiela and Laidback Luke. With the VST/AU plug-in there's also a studio angle to the RMX-1000, offering (obviously) a dedicated hardware controller for its bank of FX. The below introductory video gives a fast-paced introduction the RMX-1000.
Pioneer will release the RMX-1000 in May 2012 at a suggested retail price of 699 Euro.
