According to FutureMusic Tonium, the makers of the Pacemaker device are planning the launch of a scaled down version of their hardware. Here’s what FutureMusic has to say:

Tonium has up-down-graded their Pacemaker portable DJ system with an OS update and a smaller Hard Drive to make it more attractive to both retailers and consumers.

The new Pacemaker’s user interface has been completely reworked. The result is a more user-friendly, less-buggy interface that gives first-time users the ability to instantly DJ when they first take the device out of the box. In terms of features, Tonium’s engineers have given the new Pacemaker auto beat match, allowing novice DJs to seamlessly blend tracks together by the click of a button, allowing anyone to learn how to mix in less than 2 minutes. This Pacemaker’s hard drive has been reduced to 60GB from 120GB, capable of storing 15,000 songs.

Tonium’s new Pacemaker 2.0 will be available sometime this spring. No information on how “user-friendly” the price will be, but at over $800 bills, it’s clear that Tonium wasn’t moving as many units as they hoped. Learn more about the Pacemaker.

It sounds very interesting. I couldn’t find anything on the Packemaker site, or the Tonium site, so I do hope that this is for real as I think that a smaller device could get much more take up.
