Pacemaker Portable DJ Machine Review

Tonium Pacemaker has a review of the Tonium Pacemaker Portable DJ Machine, and decides it’s cool, but an expensive toy:

The Tonium Pacemaker may be modeled after the idiot-proof iPod, but taking advantage of all the features on the Pacemaker requires an inordinate amount of button pushing. Fiddling around with it while sober requires a certain amount of dexterity — it’s easy to tap the wrong track. Tough to imagine trying to queue up and mix in bar lighting after a few drinks.

Ultimately, it’s a cool toy to play around with but not exactly the life of the party.

WIRED Beautifully engineered; looks like the gorgeous byproduct of a mind-meld between Jonathan Ive and Walter de’Silva. 120 GB memory. Battery holds enough juice for five hours of mix-and-play time.

TIRED Doesn’t act like an iPod. Complicated menu and mixing options make the device not very a practical instrument. $800 could buy you a round-trip ticket to Spain, Berlin or some other hotbed of electronic music.

Have you given the Pacemaker a spin yet? If so, let me know what you think in the comments.

  1. I had one, premier edition #5 in fact. Ultimately I ended up returning it. However, it wasn’t really because I wasn’t pleased with the device. On the other hand it was a super cool gadget. The thing is that I’m not really a DJ (I’m more into production) and for $800 getting Max/MSP 5 makes more sense for me. That’s why I returned it. If it had been a bit cheaper I probably would have kept it just because it was a really cool gadget.

  2. Do not visit dwell right up until you’ve used with a simulated profile. James registered very little plus the display screen for almost any months time frame as they quite simply looked at the sells and become a member of trades instantly, giving some sort of full discourse within the products he or she has been considering and also so why the guy needed your tradings they have. There is actually almost nothing cherry selected. James Edward is really a professional speculator which created swells past calendar year when he started managing quite a few stay investor education lessons.
