Greg - So glad you asked about how he recorded the pitch into the loop at 2:51 as this really got me thinking and let to me discovering some amazing things I didn't know the RMX could do! It's pretty similar to the "feedback loop" that you could do on the EFX-1000. Here's a fairly lengthy description of my findings to get you started (apologies for anything I say here that isn't accurate, I've only just started experimenting with this...):

Ensure the switch in the top right is set to "User" - connect to a computer with USB, open remixbox, and turn on sync.

In the scene fx, select ECHO and change the feedback type to "HOLD".  The default echo setting ("DJM") will get gradually quieter after each loop iteration, but when the echo is set to "HOLD", and the main scene fx knob is all the way up, this will create an echo which never decays (a loop).

Set up some loop durations in parameter 1 to your liking. In the part of the video you mentioned, James has param 1 all the way to the right and has it set to 8/1 (I think).

Now you're set up, you can use it as follows:

  • Whenever the ECHO effect is turned on, the incoming audio will be added to the loop in the buffer (from either the INPUT, XPAD or both, depending on your selection of the "FX SOURCE" buttons) .

  • You can layer additional sounds and add to the loop by leaving ECHO on and playing more sound (from a CDJ, a sample in the XPAD, a mic or whatever). Because it records ANY audio coming into the scene fx section, you can "record" the changing pitch etc from the XPAD (as in your original question).

  • IMPORTANT: Because you're creating a never ending loop, you'll layer a new copy of the input for EVERY loop iteration - since dance music has repeating loops, you'll get (kind of) feedback (hence the name "feedback loop"). To prevent the "feedback" from getting crazy loud, you need to cut the input after a single loop (e.g. 2 bars if set to 8/1). For example in the video, James is using the XPAD-LEVEL knob to silence the loop coming out of the XPAD, meaning that the sampled loop contains only 2 bars worth of audio (which he then manipulates further, using his godlike ninja skills).

  • To prevent the loop from decaying, remember to leave the main scene fx dry/wet knob all the way u

  • To "clear" the loop, switch to another scene fx (not sure yet if there are other ways to do this...)

There are no doubt loads of possibilities for what you can do once you have this going - for example, using remixbox - set the RELEASE FX echo so that it doesn't kill the scenefx section, and you can roll the sampled loop to create fills etc.

I hope this is helpful, and I'm very interested to hear tips on how you guys use this sort of stuff!

The DJM 900 mic 1 is a dual plug, you can use headphone's 1/4 inch or a XLR.

Then you have the effect set on mic1 and roll it on the RMX.

Can that only be done with the 900 only or can the DJM 2000Nexus do it as well?

I'm not that advanced yet to know.

 

 A tutorial on youtube on how to do it?

A Headphone is a Microphone... You can just plug your jack into the mixer (It works with everything that has a mic input).

Plugging the Headphone into a Mic jack and using it as a microphone is something that has been around since the 70's when DJing began. It will work like that in any mixer as long as you have the right connections.

Hi Guys

I have just got my RMX 1000 and have been working my way through all its features.

In the video at 2:51 James is able to record the pitch and X-pad volume into the loop. Does anyone know how he did that?

I've been watching the video and have tried to recreate this, but on my RMX it dosn't record the volume and pitch into the loop. The loop just keeps on playing?!

Thanks

Pioneer has all these FANCY videos but really no RMX/CDJ/DJM indepth tutorials. Sure there are videos on youtube of simple instructions, I can figure out what button does what if I play with it but some of these things should be talked about in depth, to teach. I HATE knowing my RMX can do this or that but have no clue how to repeat what I just saw. I'm not saying it's a big seceret and Pioneer doesn't want everyone to know how to do it but it sort of feels like someone gave me a Motorcycle for the first time and said this does that and that does this, good luck. Huh what?

As I said, there are videos that help but it's just basics. Not many go in depth to the point of a lesson. No I don't want to copy someone else but yes I do but to the point I add my own style. I'm not an advanced DJ... it's been years and far before all this tech DJ equipment. It's like I am starting over.

Its a bit deep to do a full scale blow by blow user guide, had to figure things out also.

Its sort of like a complicated musical instrument you learn to play one note at a time.

 

Could make an epic technique seminar at a dj show or conference.

Hiya Matt

 

Thanks for the breakdown, I've just tried it and it works a treat :-)

Just watched the video again and after what you said i can see what hes doing now.

I like the way when the feedback loop is running you can snap it back to default and back to user to capture another sound, great stuff.

Thank you again :-)
