The Safety of Your Ears is in Your Hands
Get the most out of your equipment by playing it at a
safe level – a level that lets the sound come through
clearly without annoying blaring or distortion and, most
importantly, without affecting your sensitive hearing.
Sound can be deceiving. Over time, your hearing
“comfort level” adapts to higher volumes of sound, so
what sounds “normal” can actually be loud and
harmful to your hearing. Guard against this by setting
your equipment at a safe level BEFORE your hearing
adapts.
ESTABLISH A SAFE LEVEL:
• Set your volume control at a low setting.
• Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it
comfortably and clearly, without distortion.
• Once you have established a comfortable sound
level, set the dial and leave it there.
BE SURE TO OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING
GUIDELINES:
• Do not turn up the volume so high that you can’t
hear what’s around you.
• Use caution or temporarily discontinue use in
potentially hazardous situations.
• Do not use headphones while operating a motorized
vehicle; the use of headphones may create a traffic
hazard and is illegal in many areas.
S001a_A1_En
POWER-CORD CAUTION
Handle the power cord by the plug. Do not pull out the
plug by tugging the cord and never touch the power
cord when your hands are wet as this could cause a
short circuit or electric shock. Do not place the unit, a
piece of furniture, etc., on the power cord, or pinch the
cord. Never make a knot in the cord or tie it with other
cords. The power cords should be routed such that they
are not likely to be stepped on. A damaged power cord
can cause a fire or give you an electrical shock. Check
the power cord once in a while. When you find it
damaged, ask your nearest PIONEER authorized
service center or your dealer for a replacement.

Features
What’s in the box
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”.
