RMX-1000 for iPad is a tactile iPad app that lets you add high-quality FX to tracks in your iTunes library.
This app really comes into its own when linked to the Audiobus*2 app and Inter-App Audio, which will let you add FX to music you’ve made on your iPad.
Launched in 2012, the RMX-1000 hardware is a hugely popular effector that can be used in the studio and for DJ performances.
The RMX-1000 app emulates the hardware to deliver touchscreen control of Scene FX, Isolate FX, X-PAD FX and Release FX.
Just like the RMX-1000, the app lets you customize the parameters of the FX to create your own unique sound.
◇A host of high-quality FX for limitless creativity
X-PAD FX: Trigger pre-assigned samples in time with the BPM and use the X-PAD to repeat samples at different speeds.
SCENE FX: Build up and break down tracks by combining ten types of FX.
RELEASE FX：Exit the original track and feature complex FX combinations – or return to the music instantly.
ISOLATE FX：You can arrange the sound by adjusting the Hi/Mid/Low-frequencies with three types of FX and ISOLATOR.
◇The parameters of many of the FX can be customized
Create unique sounds and experiment with your own style.
◇Supports Audiobus and Inter-App Audio to become a full-blown music production tool
◇ Remix play with high quality audio is available when your iPad is connected to the USB-A port of a compatible DJ mixer*3 using a Lightning-USB cable. This application supports Quantize feature when CDJs and DJ mixer (both supporting Pro DJ Link feature) are connected via Pro DJ Link.

Not bad but could be awesome
I really like this software recreation and it sounds really good when utilised vía Audiobus.
One thing missing for me: MIDI assign ability. I’d really like to map the controls to a hardware MIDI controller for Live use.
It hasn’t had an update in a while, hopefully Pioneer will read this review and implement this suggestion. For the cost of the app it would definitely benefit and convince more to buy it I think. I pretty much most other FX apps have this type of functionality built in now
I actually think this is a good app; it's certainly underrated.
There is a glaring omission though: It is prime for AUv3, especially when used in a live performance/jam session with AUM. I hope the developer considers this for a future update.
Inability to lock on to BPM
Using this with my Pioneer DJM-450 via the usb effects send and return. Unfortunately this doesn’t really work very well...the app can’t lock on to the BPM of the track being played which means the x-pad is all but useless as out of timing with the music being played. Even when you tap to correct the BPM it still doesn’t work.
On top of that, a touchscreen doesn’t really lend itself to lots of controls and knobs, and while it can never really mimic a hardware device, it just doesn’t really work terribly well regardless.
I had high hopes for this in that it might replace my RMX-500 (hardware effects), but it doesn’t! Still looking for some decent effects that will work via the usb send / receive through audiobus....the search continues.
Pioneer - must do better.
