Back in May last year, I may’ve rashly described the Pacemaker Pilot DJ mixer as being ‘perfect for twatty Nathan Barley types’, due to its similarity to the TV character’s Wasp T12 Speechtool device. I’ve definitely changed my mind however, mostly because it’s launching next month, and I’m admittedly getting quite excited about such a nifty piece of convergence.
So what exactly is it? I’m glad you asked. Basically it’s a portable DJ tool made by the Swedish company Tonium. With a 120GB hard drive, it supports a tonne of audio manipulation features, including line-out and headphone crossfader, bend, pitch, DJ pause, Cue, Loop, Split Loop, EQ, Gain, Filters and Audio FX. Hopefully all of that means something to the DJs out there…
With the 120GB of storage, you’ll be wanting to pop lots of different files on, so luckily it supports varied audio file formats, such as MP3, VBR, AAC, WMA, WMA lossless, OGG, FLAX, and WAV.
They’re taking reservations now, so hop to it, it’s ‘well weapon’.
