The Pacemaker app is back with its second version which allows users to share mixtapes made up of songs on Spotify and share them with friends.
The program, which originally launched back in 2014, contains an automatic beat-matching function, enabling users to create seamless mixes which they can then share with others. It also allows DJs to stream songs from Spotify and be creative with their mixes.
The company has also introduced a new digital mixtape which includes a new feature in the second version of app that enables users to use its beat-matching capabilities.
Pacemaker will also recommend display a list of other mixes on the home screen using an algorithm that is based on who users follow and what they've previously liked. It has also added social elements through the application that let users scroll through their home feed and comment, like and even remix a friend’s digital mixtape.
The app is a quick, simple and effective way for users to make mixtapes and its new features including Mix Now allows users to mix tracks at the press of a button and use effects such as reverb, loop and Hi-Lo. Pacemaker doesn’t share a full copy of the mix due to copyright issues but instead gives the listeners app the data required to put together the mix.
The mixtapes can only be played back within the app and users will need a Spotify login to stream the music.
Pacemaker is available to download for free from the iOS app store and it has extra features and effects to purchase at an added cost. It is compatible with iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch.
