Tonium, the makers of the Pacemaker pocket-sized DJ system, has announced the launch of Pacemaker.net, a social networking site for Pacemaker users.

The Pacemaker music community allows members to upload and legally share the mixes of their music, created by them using a Pacemaker or the free Pacemaker Editor software.

According to Tonium, it’s the only company in the world to be allowed to legally stream any music uploaded to its site by users. This is due to a unique licensing agreement with music rights societies, STIM (www.stim.se) and IFPI (www.ifpi.se).

The site is actually not limited to Pacemaker owners. Anyone can use the Pacemaker Editor; a free, downloadable PC and MAC compatible application that lets you play music and create mixes.
