Well lets take a great piece of gear and make it better.. Have us pay less.. And be very very happy.. Hummmm... SOUNDS GOOD TO ME!!! Im sure it will sound good to many more djs that wanted a RMX-1000, but it was a little bit out of there price rance.. With new easy to use features, the RMX-500 lets you turn your sets into a totally different and unique creation.. DJ's that are still using the EFX 500 & 1000, might now take a serious look at upgrading to a new solid piece of Effects bliss.
