This was something we werenâ€™t expecting to see at the show, and itâ€™s a hand-held, two channel audio player which you can beat-match, mix, filter and EQ as DJs do â€“ all in the palm of your hand.
The brainchild of a consortium of top Swedish DJs, tech heads and money bags, the Tonium Pacemaker is a stylish little beast, and comes equipped with a 120GB internal drive, a monitor (headphone) output, plus a main output so you can cue up your tracks without interrupting the show. Considering itâ€™s size, itâ€™s amazing what this thing is capable of. It plays all manner of audio formats, apart from apples DRM AAC â€“ this is an Open Source type of thing.
You can pre-order yours now (approx 529 Euros). I want one and I donâ€™t even know how to DJ, but it is very, very cool.
