The Pacemaker can turn anyone into a portable DJ, or at least will give that impression. The black handheld device has a 120 GB hard drive inside the system that they describe as “peanut butter and jelly sandwich size.” It has the ability to preview tracks, adjust speed, split and cut loops, alter levels, add special effects, and more. One side has a color display and the other a touchpad, and it will support almost any audio files. The Pacemaker comes with software for mixing and will save the results automatically. Both PC and Mac compatible, the included charger allows 7 hours of use or 20 hours of listen time. The device will be available December in Europe and early next year in the U.S. for €520 (~$743.00,) which will give you plenty of time to save up for the purchase.
