The Pacemaker® application was sunset on June 26th, 2023.

Launched in February 2014 as the pioneer iPad app with a Spotify connection, it gave users the ability to mix music from a vast library of millions of tracks. Commended by The Verge, The Guardian, and Wired for its ingeniously simplistic UI and earning a slew of Apple accolades, including an Apple Design Award, Pacemaker® was seen as a bright new addition to the music industry.

Initially integrated with Spotify, this was a groundbreaking execution that enabled the simpler creation of mixes. It was a great outcome for users but in 2019 Spotify announced they were discontinuing their DJ integration, necessitating that all partners seek integrations elsewhere. We were committed to our many users and directly licensed 18+ million tracks from great music companies like Sony Music, Warner Music Group, Empire, and The Orchard for use with Pacemaker®.

We continued to innovate with updated UX and new features like online radio. We believe the product we have created is best in class with a unique user interface. This radio DJ, essentially transformed a user’s mobile phone into a full-scale radio station.

In the last 18 months the world has changed greatly and global economic and political challenges have been unexpected. The reality was that we could not continue to support a retail offering ourselves.

In March 2023, we announced that Pacemaker® had been acquired by Tuned Global, a leading B2B provider of media streaming solutions.

Since that time we have worked diligently with the Tuned Global team to find a way to keep the retail application running but unfortunately this was not possible. The entire Pacemaker® team has been retained by Tuned Global and we are currently working together on making the Pacemaker® technology available to other music platforms globally.

While the end of the Pacemaker® application brings us profound sadness, and we will miss our incredible community, we are working hard to make sure you can continue to use our technology in other forms in the near future. You are a diverse and enthusiastic group of music lovers who cultivated a very positive, vibrant, music-centric environment. We look forward to letting you know the platforms you may be able to use with Pacemaker® technology soon and look forward to continuing sharing and enjoying music together.

Until then, we express our heartfelt gratitude for your unwavering support and camaraderie.
Much love from the Pacemaker team.
