Pioneer creates two pieces of equipment that allows the DJ to add more juice to his mixes. By adding some sound effects this can really give an extra push to a DJ's performances. By overdoing it though it can really ruin your set. A wise DJ uses effects at intervals and not too much too close after eachother.

An Effector is connected on a Pioneer DJM mixer to the Send and Return connections at the rear side. When you use a different type of mixer you should also look for a Send/Return, Loop In/Out or Aux connection.

To make it easy to see the real differences between the older EFX-500 and the new EFX-1000 here are the features of both Effectors next to eachother.

The EFX-1000 offers 2 more beat effects on the left side of the panel. The EFX-500 has isolator EQ's like the DJM-1000. The jog effects section of the EFX-1000 has 2 more jog effects and you can adjust the wet/dry setting for the jog effects. The EFX-1000 gives you the possibility to change the direction of the sound (first the beat effects, then the jog effects or the other way around).

Also a major improvement of the EFX-1000 is the improved sound quality. It features the same 32-bit DSP that the DJM-800 and the DJM-1000 have. The EFX-1000 is also the only piece of gear besides the DJM-1000 that has the Pioneer System Link for maximum sound quality and flexibility. The Crossfader of the DJM-1000 controls the Jog paramater of the Jog effects section of the EFX-1000.

In Short : The EFX-1000 offers more effects and more possibilities at a far better sound quality level than the EFX-500.
