    Been mildly thinking about getting into DJing again thinking it could help with making tunes and just for fun really, and of course when I finally start making massive tunes I will be djing all over the world! (Well I can dream can't I)

    :rave:

    Thing is I haven't mixed two records together this decade! I stopped in about 1999 so have have never even used CDJs. Can't really afford them either and as its only for fun at the moment I was wondering about a Pacemaker. Any thoughts? Anyone used it at all?

    Cheers

    The pacemaker looks like a sick piece of kit Ian. I haven't used 1 but have seen several review videos for it. Check some out on youtube.

    Its basically like having 2 ipods, a mixer and a few effects in your hand as far as I can see! They are about £279 on play.com

    Think it's a great piece of kit, but think it would be a bit fidily to dj properly (or rather how I normally would) on it! I'd love to have one as an iPod but not at that price!
