For those who can’t resist a new gadget, there’s a new little thing coming up this month that, I suspect, will stir things up in the digital music oriented market.
Pacemaker it is called (quirky?) and it is a portable device in which you can mix tunes in a rather professional way.
It bears most of the resources of a regular sound system or audio software such as pitch control, two crossfaders (headphones and lineouts), bend, equalizer for adjusting treble, mid and bass per channel, audio effects and filters and much more. With a capacity of 120GB it also supports many different audio formats. You can also download the Pacemaker Editor software and save your mixed tunes from your PC to your device and vice-versa, carry on the process wherever you are. They also got a few big shots in the electronic music industry like Richie Hawtin and Editor of DJmag to give their verdict.
It ‘sounds’ like a new fad is about to come.
