REVIEW: Pioneer RMX-500 Remix Station


Pioneer DJ RMX-500 effects controller review (7)

As the DJ scene has adopted software and especially the built-in effects, the need for external effects units has decreased. But that hasn’t stopped Pioneer DJ from putting out solid follow-ups to their EFX units. Last week Ray looked at the daunting RMX-1000, and this week it’s the return of the RMX-500, the effects unit for the rest of us. Ray plugs it into a corner of his epic setup and makes noises with it.

REVIEW: Pioneer RMX-1000 Remix Station


Pioneer RMX-1000 effects remix controller review (8)

Pioneer’s EFX controllers became the industry standard effects controllers. And now we have the next generation that embraces all that is cool in the modern DJ age. The RMX-1000 is the top of the range and comes chokka with everything you could need and then some from an external effects controller. Ray gets giddy and somehow manages to squeeze an RMX-1000 into his already huge setup.

REVIEW: Korg Kaoss Pad KP3+ Effects Controller


Korg Kaoss pad KP3+ (7)

There’s nothing quite like a Korg Kaoss pad, apart from an updated one. Ray embeds a Korg Kaoss Pad KP3+ in his setup, plays live, and reports back.

REVIEW: Crane Stand Elite DJ Laptop Stand


Crane Stand Elite DJ laptop review (10)

It’s nice when there are aspirational products that people can actually afford. A pair of gold Technics is out of the question for most, but a laptop stand is definitely in the realm of saving up for. And the Crane Stand Elite is definitely an aspirational laptop stand. Once a Kickstarter project and now a reality, and it comes in a leatherette case too. Nice.

UDG Creator DJ laptop stand review (14)

There’s a lot of laptop stands out there, but none caused quite the commotion that the UDG Creator Laptop Stand did. We put things on it and wrote words.

UDG Creator DIGI Hardcase small Review (2)

It’s so easy to lose USB keys in your pockets and bags. So UDG make it easier to keep them together with the small UDG Creator DIGI hard case.

REVIEW: UDG Ultimate small and large DIGI Wallets


UDG Ultimate small large DIGI wallet review (5)

My bag is a mess, so anything that tames the digital mess is cool by me. So UDG’s DIGI wallets are a godsend for disorganised types like me.
