Pacemaker ® arrives for your iPad and it could be pretty amazing

If you know your mobile music history you’ll remember that Pacemaker originally brought out their handheld DJ device in 2007. You can find lots of posts about it here.

Now they’ve brought their DJ skills to your iPad. Here’s what to expect from the app (and it’s free).

The first DJ-app with a revolutionary Spotify connection. Your iTunes favorites works too.

With its carefully crafted design, Pacemaker makes djing easy, beautiful and fun.
Sync with the tap of a button; and
with a full set of colorful effects and a crossfader, you’ll have unlimited creative influence over the music you love!

Spotify – Connect with Spotify and mix millions of tracks.
iTunes – Your iTunes favorites works too.
Sync – Automatically keeps everything in sync so you don’t have to.
Scratch – Put the needle to the groove and scratch like the grandmaster.
Crossfade – Swipe to blend your tracks together. Voilà! A mix has been born.

With a tap you can loop it, extend it, half it and re-loop it.

Build it up, maximize the tension and take it through the roof. Everybody’s waiting. It’s time to kill the effects. It’s time to push the Drop button.

Hop back and forth between the beats in a track to create your live remix with Beatskip.

Adjust the Bass, Middle and Treble of your tracks and glue them together.

Record the mix on the fly. Play it, cue it and rewind it (only with iTunes).

Split the output and preview a track with the headphones crossfader before blending it into your mix (using the optional Urbanears Slussen adapter).

Pick and choose from a wide range of colorful effects at the Pacemaker Store:
Hi-Lo – Remove the high or low frequencies from your tracks to create a swooping sound effect.
Echo – Echo echo…
Roll – Create a loop that spins on top of a track.
Reverb – Make the track sound as if it’s being played in a small hut or the largest of cathedrals.

OP-1, Oplab and TS-2, TS-3 and TS-4 Sensors

Video description:

This video provides a brief overview of the functionality of the Teenage Engineering Oplab, as well as direct examples of how it can be used with the TS Sensor series including the Flip, Poke and Tap Sensors. Flip is an accelerometer, Poke is a pressure sensor and Tap is a piezzo electric trigger creation device.

I show how to use Flip as a pitch modulation tool for synths, how to use Flip and Poke to trigger and change the pitch of synth notes, and finally how to use Tap to trigger both synth and drum sounds, with a section on using Flip and Tap to trigger and select sounds while playing.

These sensors are all currently available from Teenage Engineering as is the Oplab. The Oplab has far more uses thatn presented here. I hope to have more videos showing connecting external devices together with the OP-1 and to each other (sans OP-1) to demonstrate the broad scope of what it can do as a studio tool.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out another one of my videos. Thanks to Tobias at TE for getting me hyped up on how to use the sensor series!

NanoStudio demo (video)

You don’t see many people doing NanoStudio demos on youtube these days, and you certainly don’t see many SS25s around either, so it was quite nice to see this.
