Pioneer EFX-500
I just joined prs opinions of others I have bought 200 euros-hand and it's really effective to have an effect pout all those who do not want to sell their non-table team to effects. Ralite in 3000 I had a djm with effects and I pass on a denon dn-x900 possibility that more than 3000 views djm connection but no effect! I have long hsit sell this to use a denon djm 3000 until the day I came across this efx 500 and I must admit that it's really like indipensable complment table without effect . I will say that dn-x900 or xone s2 with efx 500 is the best of the best ...
I use mostly the flanger 4 / 1, the pan in half the delay at 1 / 1, the wah and fuzz to the trans effect it is better to do so at the same fader and personal cho I like it but got a good question!
just type in the tempo and swing effect, however, it adds a little breath that is why it is better to put in effects loop with a button on off sending a signal (like the Denon DNX for example) it RULES levels of inputs and outputs on the efx 500 for the same volume before and APRS switching effect and you can use this little wonder. I deprecated the plug on the master as it will take to pluck a switch to the amp and 4 db hello breath you can not ask him to have as good pramplis, however loop effects in select-10db breath is not too much nickel is heard especially in the mix ..
So all those who say it gnre your breath you plug it sr good?

can be a little CHRE in new but on occasion it is a good deal trs
I would put 8 because two effects are not very usable


Quite simple, requires pioneer

Pioneer EFX-500
- What are the effects or types of effects available?

Delay, Echo, Pen, Flanger, Trans, Jet, Zip, Wah, Ring, and an equalizer Fuzz
The first 5 can be applied to selected frequencies (eg, hi, mid, bass). I think that's what makes the strength of this table.

Here are the spec:

• Ability to assign an effect on one or more bandwidth (MID, LOW or HI).

• Adjusting the intensity of the effects by pressing Depth.
• Adjusting the balance between original sound and sound effects
• Three-position switch (on, off and lock).

Digital Effects:
• 5 digital effects JET, WAH, RING and BUZZ configurable and modifiable in real time using the Jog Dial.

• Dimensions (W x D x H) 276 x 220 x 64 mm

The it's all good. The configuration is thought to tombersous fingers.
So we ask more questions (which is good because when you have to manage the mix in addition to it quickly becomes complicated)


- Effects are they effective, responsive and realistic enough?

Yes is not: The effects are great EXCEPT the Fuzz and Ring that break the ears. It's not a problem if you use them but hey the pioneer of ca disappoint me. 2 useless functions

- Which ones you prefer, you hate?
I like Echo, wah, Get, and Trans Flanger
I like using: fuzz and ring

Otherwise, I have noted that the tienda equalizer is one of the best I've seen from Pioneer!


- How long have you use it?

6 months with a DJM 600

- What is so special that you like best?

Configuration (joogle and general)
The equalizer
The effects of applicable rates selectable

- What is so special that you like the least?

Ring and Fuzz effects that disappointed me !!!!!

- Have you tried many other models before buying it?

Table has no effect but the mix with effects and I must say that going to a level supperior!

- How would you rate the quality / price?

For the pioneer is not too bad even more!

- With experience, you do again this choice?

Without hesitation, because I can not do without. on the other hand I've ever tested EFX1000 ... So who knows if one day I sub ...

You should know that the function send / return of the djm 600 can pass on what path nimporte instantly! And that's really the top.


Finally I would say that this table has effect is not perfect but as it is can be tasted without it!
