dj smoke's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Nice"

Pioneer EFX-1000
There are all kinds of effects (a 15éne).

There are not editable in my course.

An advantage of the digital box in the other analog

The connections can be RCA / jack or RCA / RCA


Easy to use, no worries at this level the following should do with the table used.


Hard enough to manage the level of its effects, and the filter is still one can even if we cut the effects on the box so that you can not leave the box on the line all the time, it must be cut .


For 6 months can lend I use, I did not try other models.

most is that the choice has effects, comptact.
The difference is the least of his (albeit adjustable) which is always present.
I would do even if this choice but I will not take that opportunity.

The box is very ergonomic effect, if you use the pioneer you will not be lost. I have not read the manual, not need.

What is missing from this EFX1000 little playful side as on the Kaoss Pad 3. However, you will gain information on the application of effects.


The effects are good, however small. With a little practice, can be adjusted very precisely the desired effect.


I use it for 2 years and I also has a KAOSS PAD 3.

Quality effects

Little effect
Price = 1000 Price EFX occasion of a Kaoss Pad on March 9
Little fun

With experience, I would do this easy choice because it is a box of quality effects. However, I bought it used from € 350, I never would have purchased at a higher price because it is nothing more than some less expensive effects boxes (see Audiofanzine tests).

Pioneer EFX-1000
What are the effects or types of effects available?
The effects are mainly used for mixing.
echo, flanger, etc., are curious to see characteristics novelties!
What technology is used?
analog, digital (for / the lamp (s) may be going to make it one day lol)
Are they edited? Via an editor Mac / PC?
I think the doc. they do not speak editing but sending to another unit (sampler, pc), but since the beast is equipped with MIDI I / O, it can be sent as it can get!
What is the connection? (Audio / MIDI)
Audio I / O RCA I / O jack, I / O S / PDIF digital coaxial.
Special: SW Foot control jack (pedal on / off effect), i-link signed pioneer, relates only to the djm1000 (for now)
PM: I / O course
Is this a rack or rack-mount model?
no, but you can put it on a support bracket type cdj500s (very expensive but effective) or support TV (TV 36 cm, 30 kg of pressure for example) look great and the exact proportions of the efx (see video on my future site, video available early August)


The general configuration is it simple?
for the effects of bases is the simplest technique like "adjustable sound effect ON button, press effect" and it comes out! It can not be simpler.
For combinations of effects a bit more complicated, a day of tests may be necessary, but no worries ca Vienda fast!
Editing sounds and effects is it easy?
As said before: "Setting sound effect ON button, press effect"
The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
The manual, thin, I just looked for the config. noon, but it looks very clear diagrams explain that give an effect (eg echo) on paper or on a osciloscope, ca really gives an idea of ​​the sound coming out.


The effects are they effective, responsive and realistic enough?
This question should not appear, lol, just kidding!
It's just a killing!
Good on paper is of 94 kHz / 24 bit in the management of the audio signal. What happens to the ear, it's pure crinstallin finally have to listen when the settings of input and output are set pil hair over your table (or in the efx or MASTER SEND / RETURN on your table, whatever) the sound is beautiful, thank you piopio!
As mentioned in the forum, compared to other large generators of effects known for their sound quality and their timeliness, the efx 1000 embeds the Essenciel effects that can be used in djing (no fuss, no mess), it may even, through its digital connection, you use very good effects generator for the production studio! ohhh yes!
realistic enough?
Not need to lie, pure sound, you ca transforms your mix! Be careful, as any effects generator, does not like me, too many effects kills the effect! lol
Which instruments do you use?
I'm not a musician, just small dj, so with my gear + dj qqs both prod.
Which ones you prefer, you hate?
Shame for the competitors, there's not much to take ... I just let the insulator Hight / Mid / Low as the efx 500 me, but hey it's me, others will say that c is better that way.


How long have you use it?
2 days, but I'm going mad, like some friendly people who know me or via my site know. I tested for you readers! and I rank them in trenches (excluding impact against the walls, I do not ca! lol)
What is so special that you like most and least?
the feedback loop changes with time, it's magic! see future video
For some effects the speed we should have done that one believes in a live performance like Laurent Garnier, with 10L of sweat at his feet!
Have you tried many other models before buying it?
so, necessarily, we bought not one multi-purpose almost 900 euros without testing!
I tried all those who were not in a rack, which could be put near.
How would you rate the quality / price?
The quality is undeniable that! The price. it is true that 100 or 200 euros less allow smaller budgets to take, I say no. This is the biggest criticism that can be a pioneer, a pioneer fesai I myself was a time when I could not Accera material of this type (a time of cdj500s eg). On the other hand as I disai or the seller I bought all this, Pioneer is still the material very, very successful, functional, and now, very robust, and must say that I knew not before, and when I hit the first time as my DJM800, bin there's nothing to see, for the same price, it's really a hardware part. I preach no pioneer, I know lots of other brands, but their new range (cdj800mk2, cdj1000mk3, djm800/1000, efx 1000) tappent very very much! I imagine it will not even go out in 3 / 4 years ...
With experience, you do again this choice? ...
And the answer "in a 3 / 4 years old pioneer", okay?

Gpforce's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Pioneer EFX-1000
Delay, Echo, Pitch Echo, Trans, Flanger, Filter, Phaser assignable to the bpm of 1 / 8, 1 / 4, 1 / 2, 3 / 4, 1 / 1, 2 / 1, 4 / 1 and 8 / 1 automatque time is either manual or tap in to the pot and noon.

Jet, Wah, Phase Shifter, Ring, Zip, Vocoder and Humanizer controlled by the jog.

Numrique works on 44.1 kHz, 48kHz and 96kHz to analog and, of course.

The effects are controlled by the afternoon.

RCA connectors for analog and Jack and RCA for digital. Jack is a dclenchement Submitted for the purpose by one pedals, which must be assigned to the Prior part bmp or via the jog switch. Also Submitted MIDI IN and MIDI OUT connection and a digital cable spcial provided to the DJM-1000.
I used a Korg EMX sending the tempo effect instantanment who hold it. Unlike in a DJ set, the EFX sends the korg bmp which is always hold on my records, practice for some quick in his beat.

This effect is not rack mountable.

We regret may be the lack of XLR connectors symtrique, and also the lack of RCA cable in the box. Apart from the special EFX cord and cable for power supply, nothing else provided. Note that the device is packed Manir more exemplary.


Easy and intuitive, this kind of device is known by dj rev his little ERRF SERIES 500, and its operation is similar.
The effects are available for selection intantanment the corresponding button for each part, there is a pot for the depth of the effect and a pot "caracter" which amends intonatation effect. Finally, a pot mix the original signal which passes to its workforce.

The manual is clear and well explained by many small schmas. The device employs both facvile of the manual will remain the REFERENCE of the last really lucky if you stumble on a function.


So a box trs powerful effect, and considering the price it can, but once in hand it's pure slaughter of good sound, it's almost a musical instrument it alone so the possibilities are many and varied. Pay the price quickly shelved.

I use it in an output table Rodec CX-1100, this was a routing effect (only model 19 "Rodec with this feature), the problem is that it would take almost three hand alone for the effect, so to avoid even the table of quibbling, I put the APRS master but with a little practice, you know how the machine will perform all necessary and prcoute becomes futile.
He is therefore in the vinyl set but also with the Korg for the components "in the beat".
MIDI is very practical, it can be used as a sequencer prfr Acid in my case and record a track that is the manipulation or inversment, plan ahead what must be the EFX and when it should. Happiness.

All the effects are used, they all have their place on the machine with a good record and also trs this setup is completely amazing, in fact using solely with mastery as it transforms littralement techno in 1 / 4 hours of its modulations amricain trs types.


2 years, the missing link c'tait DNA Dj.

What I like about him is that he has exaggerated its kind, we all ask (for a box because it is not the caf of course).

I saw lots of box effect, but this is my l prfre.

It just CHRE cert and you pay a little above the Pioneer labeled but is short of expectations.
