There’s a whole lot of streaming music apps for iOS with most offering the same collection of songs just with different packages, and pricing. Pacemaker is a music app that is all about creativity allowing you to create your own mixes. It’s a new DJ app for iPad that ties into Spotify allowing you to mix millions of songs together, and you can also add in songs from your iPad music library. We have seen DJ apps on the iPad before, highlighted by the user friendly Djay. Pacemaker is a lot like Djay, but with an iOS 7 style design that includes flat interface elements, and pastel colors as compared to Djay’s use of realistic turntables.
The Spotify inclusion is a major feature, though it’s worth noting that you need Spotify Premium to use the songs within the app. Once you have your account synced up, you can then start mixing with user friendly tools. You can scratch either turntable, sync the beats of the two songs, and effortlessly crossfade with an on-screen slider. Pacemaker also provides the ability to add in effects including reverb, echo, roll, and beatskip all accessible from action buttons within the center of the turntables. The entire app is very reminiscent of Djay, but with Spotify inclusion, iOS 7 design, and a freemium structure with in-app purchases for additional effects.
Pacemaker (Free, iPad) offers a high quality DJ set-up that anyone can pick-up, and start making mixes with.
