- Pacemaker Update Adds Scratching & Many New Features!
  • Updated: Pacemaker Update Confusion Explained

    Updated: Pacemaker has contacted us to let us know that the changelog below about the scratching feature is for the Pacemaker device, not the Pacemaker app. However, they still released an update v1.2.2.1 for the app, so check your App World for the update if you haven't yet. The confusion came from both Pacemaker products being updated at about the same time and the app update not having a changelog. The official changes for the v1.2.2.1 app update are minor bug fixes and CPU optimizations, with the most notable being that settings are now correctly saved when you close the application.

    Every since the highly anticipated DJ mixing app, Pacemaker, has hit the BlackBerry PlayBook it has been a success in the music world. Pacemaker launched back in May during BlackBerry World 2012 and has come a long way.


    • Scratching (Vinyl Mode) – Enable it under (Settings, Mix Control, Vinyl Mode). Simply touch the edges of the navigation pad on the Pacemaker to scratch your music.
    • Beat Lock/Sync Mode – Enable beat lock by holding the P-Button down and pressing Play on the second deck. The second deck will be synced to the same tempo as the first and held there until this process is repeated.
    • Sync Tempo – Hold the P-Button down and press Cue on the second deck. The second decks tempo will now match the tempo of the first deck.
    • Beat Jump – Enable beat jump by holding the P-Button down and pressing ‘REW’ on a deck. ‘Beat Jump Enabled’ will be displayed. Repeat this process to jump backward in time in the track or hold the P-Button down and press ‘FWD’ to jump forward in the track. You can change the length of the jump by holding the P-Button down and pressing the ‘REW’ and ‘FWD’ buttons simultaneously. Great for creating a ‘stutter effect’.
    • Fixed Loop Length – Set Fixed Loop Lengths in (Settings, Mix Control, Fixed Loop Length) and all loops you create will default to that length.
    • Snap Loops – Set this on under (Settings, Mix Control, Snap Loops) and all loops that are created will be snapped to the nearest beat.
    • Digital Output (Play mode only) – Requires an A/V cable (Digital out where video should be) and this mode only works on the line-out channel (Hardware limitation)

    Known Issues:

    • Scratch effects (Vinyl Mode) can’t be saved. All scratch effects used in a recorded mix will not be saved. They will not be shown in the Pacemaker Editor either when you attempt to edit your mix.
    • Looping Artifact - Audio from a loop in a previously loaded track can sometimes reappear.
    • Scratching – Sound quality needs to be improved.
    • Translations – Wrong translations for other languages other than English.
    • Legal notice – Requires updating, some listed 3rd party libraries are no longer used.
    You can pick up Pacemaker app for the PlayBook via BlackBerry App World for only $19.99. Or, you can get the Free Trial Version and $4.99 Lite Version as well.
