Tonium Pacemaker 666

 

Someone told us the other day that real DJs are analog. While we're huge fans of the warm sound of vinyl, we're pretty sure this person has never lugged 15 crates of albums up four flights of stairs, only to have to return to the van to get the...

Incredible amount of features for a device this small. Supports a wide variety of music formats. Save your mixes as you create them

Could be difficult for lefties. Audio inputs at the bottom too crowded for thick 1/4-inch to 1/8-inch adapters

The Pacemaker 666 won't replace the turntables we all know and love, but what it does do is give aspiring DJs the ability to pare down their equipment with a feature-rich device that-with a few weeks of practice-will definitely keep the groove on the...

Tonium Pacemaker Pocket DJ Review and Demo

 

I wish I was a DJ. Or at least, I wish I was talented enough to use the Tonium Pacemaker Pocket DJ effectively. I play drums but I can't mix beats, so I had to call in reinforcements. My good friend DJ T.A.I. offered to help out with taking a look at...

The Pacemaker is potentially one of the coolest devices I’ve ever played with, and I hope you enjoy the short video demo by DJ T.A.I. (The music in the video is his own stuff).

Tonium Pacemaker (60GB)

 

When we reviewed the original Pacemaker in June of 2008, it topped our list of digital DJ toys, but the accompanying $800 price tag was hard to swallow. Revamped for 2009, the second-generation of the Pacemaker MP3 player includes all the features of...

The second-generation of the DJ-friendly Pacemaker MP3 player offers a more affordable price than the original model, and new features, such as automatic tempo matching, expanded effects, audio time-stretching, and a master EQ

The slashed price of the Pacemaker comes at the cost of a smaller hard drive, and the complaints we had about the previous model's complicated interface design haven't changed

The Pacemaker is a fun tool for DJs on the go. It's not our first choice for playing a DJ gig, but it gets the job done, and the price is a fair reflection of its features and portable design.

Pacemaker Pacemaker Portable DJ

 

I've been a recreational DJ ever since I was 15 and discovered my first 12-inch. These days when I play out, I tend to switch back and forth between records and MP3s, but I've always preferred spinning vinyl to tapping on my laptop for two reasons: 1)...

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

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

Gadgetell Review: The Tonium Pacemaker

 

The Tonium Pacemaker is a DJ tool that lets you make mixes using songs on its 60GB internal hard drive using a combination of buttons and a circular touchpad. Controlling tempos, effects like reverb, audio properties such as treble and bass are done...

At $499.99, the price can seem very steep if you just want to play DJ. However, if making mixes is a passion of yours, the Pacemaker is incredibly useful. While I am not a DJ, I believe that you could work out rough mixes on the Pacemaker while on...

Are you a person who loves music but wants to do more than just listen to it? Are you a club DJ or an aspiring music producer? Do you just like to experiment with mixing music for old time's sake? If any of the above describe you, then the Tonium...

Handheld mixing for DJs! What will they think of next?

At the centre of things is the device's circular touchpad, which sits directly beneath a circular screen at the top. This is used to scroll quickly through track lists, adjust gain and volume levels, bass and treble. It's also used to adjust the speed...

Tonium Pacemaker 60GB review - music and mixing reviews and video

 

Tonium's awesome mini DJ rig has just received some new firmware and a cheaper price tag. Is it ready to hit the big time?

Now much easier to use. Plenty of hard disk space. Unique and quite brilliant

PC and Mac software needs more work. Not for the sausage-fingered

Expert review by:

Stuff magazine

 

Promising all the features of a DJ booth in one pocketable gadget, the Pacemaker is truly unique. But is it a mixing essential?

It won't mix the tunes for you, but for those who can beat-mix or are prepared to learn, the Pacemaker is a dream come true

Preview: Tired of hauling around a hernia-inducing DJ rig? The Pacemaker is a full mixing set-up ' but in a device smaller than the PSP

Touch-sensitive cross-fader. Incredibly capable for the size. Generous 120GB capacity.

Expensive.
