Pacemaker App for Playbook
Tuesdayâ€™s BlackBerry World General Session was jam-packed with news about RIMâ€™s current and future projects. Wednesday afternoonâ€™s press event with CEO Thorsten Heins was just as informative, without all the flash. Heins pointed out that the new BB 10 platform would be focused on having a strong framework for third-party apps, especially when it came to the Playbook.

One of those third-party apps is from the creator of the Tonium Pacemaker DJ Systems, Jonas Norberg. The Pacemaker app replaces the Pacemaker gadget, which was a pocket-size DJ with a 120 GB hard drive capable of doing everything a standard turntable does. Despite rave reviews, the Pacemaker didnâ€™t sell too well, so production stopped. Itâ€™s being revived as an app in BlackBerry’s Playbook tablet. Norberg was on hand at the BlackBerry party to demo it. The virtual mixer holds a full set of features and audio effects one usually finds in a standard, tabletop mixer. The app is still in development, just like BB 10, and no definitive date or price has been set.
