Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Pacemaker is a multi-award winning, revolutionary, new portable music player; the equivalent of two turntables, a mixer, an effects unit and every record you've ever owned, all miniaturised into the palm of your hand. You can play two tracks simultaneously, mix between the two, auto beatmatch, use effects, filters and loops - everything a pro DJ can do, but it fits in your pocket. Instead of simply listening to your music, now you can completely interact with it. The possibilities are limited only by your own imagination. You can take Pacemaker with you wherever you go and be ready to DJ anywhere, any time. Everything you ever wanted to do with your music is now totally up for grabs.

The Pocket-Sized DJ System

With all the functionality of a professional set-up Pacemaker is the first product in the world that truly brings DJing to the masses and right into the hands of the next DJ generation.

Pacemaker's two independent audio channels let you play two tracks side by side. Beatmatching is easily done at the touch of a button, and with a full set of professional audio effects and a crossfader, you now have unlimited creative influence over your music.

The features and the performance of Pacemaker makes it the perfect mixer for any situation; a club, a house party, a BBQ, on the train, on a plane, in the park, at the beach, the list goes on... Pacemaker can be used for practising your DJing or for preparing your set on-the-go. Connect the lineout jack to an amplification system and you're ready to perform with full control in your headphones.

Pacemaker even lets you save your mixes and spread them across the digitized universe. Any mix can be saved on your Pacemaker. When transferring your mixes to your computer, you can edit and refine your mixes as you like with the free desktop application, Pacemaker Editor. When you're ready, go ahead and upload your mixes to our mix community and let anyone listen, any time.

Top Customer Reviews

I'd heard a lot of great stuff about the Pacemaker from DJ friends, so when it arrived, I couldn't wait to get the box open. The packaging itself was pretty cool - all black and sleek with photos of mysterious Day-Glo-coloured people in various states of repose, wearing headphones. Once I slid the outer sleeve off and got down to the inner chamber, there she was, nestled snugly in a bed of black foam.

The build quality is chunky and solid, but not heavy, with two circular features on the front - one is the screen and the other the touchpad. (When I flipped it over I found the following message in tiny letters: "All rights reserved - All wrongs reversed". I knew I had stumbled onto something cool). Imagine an iPod with a 60 GB memory and built-in decks and effects... that's the Pacemaker.

After a couple of days, I was pretty much hooked. I should point out at this stage that I have never Deejayed before in my life. Set-up was really easy (there are eight tracks already pre-loaded into the memory). Two buttons in the centre of the player represent the two `decks' with a touch-sensitive slider underneath for crossfading/mixing between the decks. There's also a handy button on the side that enables you to pull in a whole load of other effects and controls when you use the touchpad. Two further buttons allow you to forward and rewind the tracks. When the rewind button is used in conjunction with the side button, you can create loops - just like a proper DJ!

Among other things, the touchpad lets you control the treble, mid, bass, gain, echo, roll, hi/lo cut.

I found that after prolonged play with my new toy, I was discovering new functionality including a reverse loop (yes, you can play your beats backwards!

Pretty damn cool! That's all I can say. Has some amazing effects and you can actually do some impressive beat matching (both auto and manual) at a party on this little device, all whilst putting on some very very cool sound effect filters.

Although Tonium has closed down, as mentioned by one commentator, the firmwares are still around if you want to update it etc... follow the guides here:

All in all, this product is awesome and just works!
Also looks amazing and has great build quality. People are always amazed when they see it in action, always asking where they can get one.

I can't DJ using vinyl or CD but I've been collecting minimal techno and house MP3s for the last 5yrs so have built up quite a collection of tracks.... On purchasing the Pacemaker I was suddenly able to "mix" all of these tracks I had been hoarding away. This tool is great fun, relatively simple to use and great to turn up to parties with and hook into the soundsystem. Can't recommend enough.

Been meaning to post this for a while. Tonium went, to all extents and purposes, out of business some months back. If you buy this device, be aware that you will get no support from Tonium, the forums are down and there's no-one there to backup any warranty. You also won't be able to update the firmware to the latest version as the servers have been taken offline.

Purchase only at your own risk.

I was an early adopter and got one of the first few hundred units. While it's a great device in theory, the lack of support when Tonium were around has become totally non-existant now they're effectively a dead company. I've only given it a one star in the hope this post gets more visibility and people are made aware of the risks when buying a device made by a company that no longer trade.

Amazon - I would seriously consider pulling this item from your stores.

Not a replacement for Vinyl or CD decks perhaps, but not far off it. If you have used CD decks, you should be able to get the idea of the product within about an hour. More than enough memory for most people, and excellent build quality. And funny packaging :)

One of the best gadgets I've ever bought. There are MP3 players out there but none with the capabilities and the style of this thing.
