Digital Effects

Offering the industrie first BPM linked DJ Effect section. Now it is possible to set the speed of the effects accoording the speed of the audio that is beeing played. This opens up a brand new bag of tricks.

  1. Delay
    A single repeat of 1/2, 3/4 and 1/1 beat, music can be overlaid on a track. For example, with 1/2 beat Delay, 4 beats will be increased to 8, while using the 3/4 beat Delay produces a "leap sound" effect.

  2. Echo
    Repeatedly overlaying beats of 1/2, 3/4 and 1/1 is simple. Cutting in 1/1 beat Echo can create an intriguing fade to the beat; applying it to the mic lets microphone output to be reproduced repeatedly to the same beat.

  3. Auto Pan
    The left-right can be changed automatically to the rhythm, as rapidly as you like. Auto Pan can do rhythmic switches which are too quick for human operators.

  4. Flanger
    Switching to the Flanger effect produces synthesizer tones quickly and easily at 1/2 3/4., 1/1, 2/1, and 4/1 time. The Flanger works particularly well in conjunction with a Seamless loop.
  5. Pitch Shifter
    The Pitch Shifter corrects changes in pitch, within a range of +1 octave, when using analogue turntable or other vendor's CD players. Used with the mic, the Pitch Shifter can alter voices.

  6. Reverb
    A variety of reverberation effects are available.

  7. Send/Return
    Your samplers and peripherals are easily connected to the DJM-500 and Auto BPM Counter.
