While this is probably not for the masses, it is for the DJ on the go. The Pacemaker DJ system from Tonium is a portable DJ mixer and player that works in effects such as pitch changes, looping, roll, echo and more things that the DJ-newb such as myself know nothing of!
We saw a 60GB Pacemaker that is truly handheld. It has jacks for headphone monitors as well as a crossfader, multiple channels and a USB connection. The cool part of the interface is the touchpad that lets you control many of the functions with your fingertips.
It comes with a software app for either Windows or Mac so you can manage the music and tracks on the device. Music formats include MP3, M4A (AAC-LC), AIFF, FLAC, WAV, and Ogg Vorbis.
If you’re a DJ, the super cool thing about this is that you can line out to a wireless transmitter so you can be free of the equipment on the side; you could actually DJ from the middle of the dance floor!
The 60GB Pacemaker should be available in Spring for $550.
