Mastersounds has announced a bunch of new things at once — new 4 channel rotary and linear 4V mixers, and the Mastersounds FX unit.
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.
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.
