WARNING
Before plugging in for the first time, read the following
section carefully.
The voltage of the available power supply differs
according to country or region. Be sure that the
power supply voltage of the area where this unit
will be used meets the required voltage (e.g., 230 V
or 120 V) written on the AC adapter’s label.
D3-4-2-1-4*_A1_En
WARNING
To prevent a fire hazard, do not place any naked flame
sources (such as a lighted candle) on the equipment.

Operating Environment
Operating environment temperature and humidity:
+5 °C to +35 °C (+41 °F to +95 °F); less than 85 %RH
(cooling vents not blocked)
Do not install this unit in a poorly ventilated area, or in
locations exposed to high humidity or direct sunlight (or
strong artificial light)

Before making or changing the connections,
switch off the power and disconnect the power
cord from the AC outlet.
D44-9-3_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.
S002*_A1_En
If the AC plug of this unit does not match the AC
outlet you want to use, the plug must be removed
and appropriate one fitted. Replacement and
mounting of an AC plug on the power supply cord of
this unit should be performed only by qualified
service personnel. If connected to an AC outlet, the
cut-off plug can cause severe electrical shock. Make
sure it is properly disposed of after removal.
The equipment should be disconnected by removing
the mains plug from the wall socket when left unused
for a long period of time (for example, when on
vacation).
D3-4-2-2-1a_A1_En
CAUTION
The ON, STANDBY switch on this unit will not
completely shut off all power from the AC outlet.
Since the power cord serves as the main disconnect
device for the unit, you will need to unplug it from the
AC outlet to shut down all power. Therefore, make
sure the unit has been installed so that the power
cord can be easily unplugged from the AC outlet in
case of an accident. To avoid fire hazard, the power
cord should also be unplugged from the AC outlet
when left unused for a long period of time (for
example, when on vacation).

Quick Start Guide
Features
Operation overview
This unit is a remixing station for DJs consisting of four effect sections. It
allows tracks to be arranged in real time with intuitive operation.
1 What’s in the box
SCENE FX
Through the operation of turning the control, new sounds can be added
to the currently playing track and breaks can be created at the desired
positions to achieve a new sound for the track. Ten types of effects and
two sub parameters can be combined to achieve highly individualistic
DJ remixing performances.
ISOLATE FX
The sounds of specific instruments can be isolated and their rhythm and
tone changed in the same way as a DJ mixer’s EQ controls are operated.
One of four effects can be selected and applied at separate rates for the
low, mid and high frequencies.
X-PAD FX
By operating the touchpad, new sounds can be added to the original
track in beat with the track’s rhythm. Various sounds can be added to
tracks and remixed using four preset internal sound sources or by loading sampled sound sources from SD memory cards.

! Operating instructions (this document)
The currently playing track and the effect sound can be transitioned
smoothly simply by operating the lever. Three types of effects and a lever
switch allow you to create highly individualistic arrangements.
QUANTIZE
The track’s beat positions are analyzed in real time and the timing for
producing the effects and the X-PAD FX sounds is adjusted automatically. The sounds can be played in tempo with the track, even when
operated roughly.
remixbox
The included dedicated application software can be used to change
the parameter values and types of this unit, letting you customize it to
achieve an effect machine suiting your personal tastes.
RMX-1000 Plug-in
A VST/AU Plug-in letting you launch the functions of this unit on a computer is provided. With it, the RMX-1000 can be used as a controller.

Hook the AC adapters’ power cord here.
! The sound will be interrupted if the AC adapter’s power cord is
disconnected from the unit during playback.
Using the cord hook
Hook the AC adapter’s power cord onto the cord hook to fasten it in
place. This prevents the power cord from being accidentally pulled, causing the plug to get disconnected from the terminal.
! The sound will be interrupted if the AC adapter’s power cord is disconnected from the unit during playback.
1 As shown on the diagram below, extend the tip of the power cord to
approximately the center of the rear panel of this unit and hook the
power cord onto the bottom side of the cord hook.

! Connect this unit and the computer directly using the included
USB cable.
! A USB hub cannot be used.
5OUTPUT terminals
Connect these to the external input terminals on a mixer, etc.
6INPUT terminals
2 As shown on the diagram below, move the tip of the power cord back
in the opposite direction past the top of the cord hook, and hook the
power cord onto the top side of the cord hook.
3 Turn the tip of the power cord so that it is facing towards you, then
turn it back to create a ring as shown in the diagram and insert it into
the [DC IN] terminal of this unit.
Connect these to the external output terminals on a mixer, etc. When
only [L (MONO)] is connected, the sound input to [L (MONO)] is
also input to [R].
CAUTION
When connecting audio cables, only connect either RCA pin jacks or
phone jacks, not both.
Interconnect the equipment in such a way that the flow of the audio
signals does not loop. If looped connections are made, the circuitry
could produce oscillations that may damage the speakers, etc.
Examples of looped connections to be avoided
! Connecting a DJ mixer’s output to this unit’s input terminals then
inputting this unit’s output to the same DJ mixer’s input terminals.
! Connecting the output from a DJ mixer’s [SEND] terminals to this
unit’s input terminals then inputting this unit’s output to input terminals other than the [RETURN] terminals on the same DJ mixer.

Preparations for using the effects
Using the ISOLATE FX function
1 Slide the [ON, STANDBY] switch on the rear panel of
this unit to the [ON] position.
When the [LOW], [MID] or [HI] control is turned, the strength of the low,
mid or high frequency effect increases or decreases. It is also possible
to isolate the sound of specific instruments in the low, mid or high frequency ranges and increase or decrease the number of sounds.
1 Press one of the [ISOLATE FX] buttons.
2 Check that the [INPUT] and [X-PAD] buttons are lit.
2 Turn the [LOW], [MID] or [HI] control.

not applied; only the original sound is output.
Using the X-PAD FX function
4 Turn the [OUTPUT LEVEL] control.
With this function, effects can be applied to this unit’s internal sound
sources and added to the currently playing track. Instead of the internal sound sources, it is also possible to load and use sampled sound
sources prepared on SD memory cards and to sample and use the currently playing sound.
1 Press one of the [X-PAD FX] buttons.
5 Use the effects.
For instructions on using the various effects, see the sections below.
Using the SCENE FX function

to the track or removing sound from the track is applied. This lets you
achieve a new sound for the track.
1 Press one of the [SCENE FX] buttons.
2 Touch the [X-PAD].
The selected X-PAD FX effect changes depending on the position on the
[X-PAD] that is touched.
Using the RELEASE FX function
When the [RELEASE FX] lever is moved towards you, the original sound
disappears and only the effect sound is output. Move the lever is back to
its original position to transition smoothly from the effect sound to the
original sound.
1 Switch the [RELEASE FX] selector switch.
2 Turn the [SCENE FX] control.
When the control is turned clockwise, the selected SCENE FX effect
changes greatly.
When the control is turned fully counterclockwise, the SCENE FX effect
is not applied; only the original sound is output.
2 Move the [RELEASE FX] lever towards you.
The selected RELEASE FX effect changes according to the position of
the lever.
When the lever is moved back to its original position, the effect turns off.
Any SCENE FX, ISOLATE FX or X-PAD FX effects that were on before are
also turned off.
