Put A DJ System In Your Pants

Tonium Pacemaker

Tonium Laboratories has released Pacemaker, the world’s first professional pocket-sized DJ system.

Yep – now you can put a dj system in your pants.

Pacemaker allows two tracks to be played simultaneously and boasts all the functionality of a full, professional DJ set up. The intelligent software will automatically work out the BPMs (beats per minute) of each of your tracks, enabling you to quickly learn to match the beats between two tracks and create a DJ mix. Pacemaker works with both PC and MAC and supports all the major audio formats including MP3, WAV, AAC, OGG and FLAC files.

Inventor of Pacemaker and founder of Tonium, Jonas Norberg comments, “We’re out to try something different; to bring people closer to the music they love and to let music lovers be creative with their passion. We aim to increase the diversity and reinforce the value of music by offering new means for people like us to creatively engage in what we love!”

Pacemaker will also offer the Pacemaker Editor to its users; a free, downloadable PC and Mac compatible computer application that allows you to play music and edit and create mixes. You can download mixes you have created from Pacemaker, or upload mixes to it from the Pacemaker Editor. You have complete freedom to be as forward thinking as you like with your music.

Pacemaker will also offer its users a community platform to legally share their saved DJ mixes. This music sharing platform is one of the foundations of the Pacemaker philosophy, to let people express and share their creativity and find inspiration from others. There is more to come on this innovation in the very near future…In the meantime, please welcome Pacemaker, the next step in the music interaction revolution.

  1. No they didn’t yet – it still says Feb 2008.
    Very expensive for US, with current euro/dollar rate and shipping it’ll be about $760 , I’m not sure if it’s worth it.

    Later on they say they’re going to lower the price by making more, and first 2000 units will be “limited edition”.
