Thinking about getting your mixing and mashing on? At this past BlackBerry World we saw Pacemaker debut their DJ app and the Martinez Brothers even used it for the Universal Studios party. Is it really that good of a DJ app? Pacemaker comes in two version: full priced at $19.99 and Lite priced at $4.99.

Some features of the full version include:

  • Auto beatmatch – Instantly sync tempo and phase of two tracks by clicking the Sync button.
  • Scratch – Put the needle on the record and scratch like the Grandmaster.
  • Time stretch – Alter and set the tempo of a track ± 100% without affecting pitch/key.
  • Pitch speed – Alter track tempo ± 100% and pitch/key ± one octave in parallel.
