Update ruined it
by PrestonxD on 2021/01/15 16:29
Forcing users to pay without the use of their Spotify catalogue and for less music made this app useless for me. I used to love it and use it every day for my work.
Fix this wierd thing
by kooldudemankid on 2021/01/14 09:39
Okay whenever I try to tap on a song to make a mix it sends me to a add I used to be able to use this for free why is it spamming me with adds for the + version and sorry for being poor but please I just wanna mix some songs.
Best wishes
by apayton89 on 2021/01/13 15:00
I have no doubt in my mind that pacemaker will come back and be the best app out there that even may rival Spotify and Apple Music one day. I wish you guys the best over the next year as you get your music deals sorted out. I just hope that it happens before it’s too late. 1 star rating for now thought because none and I do mean none of my music works except for maybe 20 out of 1100 songs 👎🏾
Buyer Beware
by balt821 on 2021/01/13 01:38
I understand the predicament the developers of this app are in, but everyone abound know that when you upgrade you will very likely have access to a mere fraction of the songs you had previously. I expected some loss but not this. My electronic mixes are done for.
Pay for everything
by raininaing on 2021/01/10 19:35
I thought the app was going to let you play music for free but the creators want money so they charge you for everything what a disappointment
New update is horrible
by cameronpro1 on 2021/01/10 02:40
Customers are speaking. Please find a different streaming service like maybe Tidal that is at a reasonable price range. I get bombarded by “please leave us a review” each time I open the app. Subscription or not, well here’s your review. Until the price (17.00) monthly is worked on, I will not be returning.
Too expensive
by lukeiamyourfather123456 on 2021/01/08 07:06
You cannot do a single thing without the $5 weekly subscription. And I am not going to pay $260 a month.
Price too high
by Rob 818 on 2021/01/08 06:15
Dollar votes. I used this app for a whole year and it made life easier when I didn’t want to record my whole sets and for quick ideas. As of January 2021 they are charging $16.99 for 1 month!! I used to pay $15.99 for 3 months which I loved. Unfortunately won’t be using this app until price goes down.
Let us use any song from our Spotify library
by jerr_bear4lyfe on 2021/01/06 19:47
The new update is great but some of the songs in my library from Spotify that I want to use won’t let me play. We should be able to use any song we have in there! Please let us do that. Other than that, the app’s great! Thanks!
The worst
by Alsqkc on 2021/01/05 22:53
You can’t even play your music from Spotify before it will play anything now it’s limited used it for New Year eve the worst I was better off queuing music on Spotify worst of all is the price not worth it what so ever
Locked
by rossthegardener on 2021/01/05 20:46
In Pacemaker 3.0, it locks you out of the app until you pay a fee of $5.00 a week
AMAZING
by jasonvaca on 2021/01/05 17:27
AMAZING
you guys ruined the app.
by ev dia on 2021/01/05 17:17
it was all good when i could just use the basic version of it, but now i can’t even do that and have to insert credit card info for which i don’t even have? don’t download this app.
I’m upset
by Noming on cheese on 2021/01/05 03:59
I really like this app when Spotify premium was on there, now I’m having to pay just to have music? You claim to have millions of tracks but what about underground artists like in the edm community? I can’t mix with those songs anymore and honestly it’s kind of wack.
Worthless without Spotify integration
by MightyBryan on 2021/01/05 00:18
This used to be the best AI DJ app on any mobile platform, hands down. I have paid for and used the previous version for months, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Now without Spotify, it is basically worthless. Maybe consider another music service, like Tidal, and this app can prevail again. But obtaining separate licenses from different artists will kill this app. Please consider Tidal.
Terrible new update
by Dashiidash on 2021/01/03 00:22
All of the best tracks are no longer available with pacemaker. I had to delete the app. Maybe someone will come out with one that works as well as the old pacemaker. This new version is trash. I’d rather use Spotify with 12 second fade than this mess. It takes hours just to figure out how to fill the gaps now.
Stealing your money
by Anonehhhboo on 2020/12/31 23:58
This app used to be the best. But now they’re forcing you to pay $5 a WEEK to just select your music from YOUR OWN LIBRARY! Upon app startup, they even stick you in a waiting game to exit the “pay” page on their app. You have to wait like a full minute for their X to pop up. Thought they could sneak on people and make them think they HAVE to pay. I’m severely disappointed in you guys. I ain’t paying for SHlT
DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY
by Steve Tha Follower on 2020/12/30 16:28
The app should be more upfront about the lack of music but instead they skirt around the truth until you’ve purchased and then it’s too late. They’re like a shady used car salesman. Pacemaker, shame on you for trying to deceive people. It’s extremely BAD FAITH. Horrible, deceptive advertising and no respect for their paying costumes. They take your money and give you the proverbial middle finger. Extremely disappointed and will be warning everyone I know not to sign up.
Old purchases gone! And now, a crazy subscription?!
by Dhruv Raman on 2020/12/30 05:24
Pacemaker, I usually never write reviews for apps, and especially not bad ones for ones that I have used so many times in the past. But you pushed it a bit too far. Seeing you guys integrate Apple Music was a gift to my eyes; I’d escape from subscribing to both Apple and Spotify and have all my music in one place. But, when you thing something is too good to be true, it usually is. First, all my effects purchases from before- gone. Disappeared. Pacemakers’ team said “thank you very much!” and slapped my face with a crazy subscription cost. Man, even Netflix costs less than this! 16.99 per month is nowhere even close to reasonable, so you’ve left me with no choice: I’m not using this app again. To readers, save your money. Pacemaker had a great thing going and ruined it with a cheap paywall, which goes to show that their vision is corrupted. They don’t want your love of music, they just want your wallet. Pacemaker, I really hope you’re better than this.
You have to pay
by Cheddar84 on 2020/12/28 20:53
I used to love this app until you had to pay literally 5 dollars a week just to make music. They are definitely better apps that are free.
They revoked all the good music
by GGSGAFAFATA on 2020/12/26 04:02
All the good songs are “not licensed” and I can’t listen to or mix them, terrible app. I wish there was a 0 star option
3.0 Ruined Pacemaker
by 🐵Calen on 2020/12/25 10:25
Out with the old in with the new, right ? Well no not quite, the update has rendered this app useless. All my old mixes are gone, and it’s quite sad really. I used this for on the spot live sets, now I’ll just toss it out. And something els the subscription is 16 dollars a month now. -3 review
Don’t even bother download
by LacrooseGuy35 on 2020/12/25 07:35
Basically you can’t do anything with having to pay, can’t make a set, can’t listen to someone’s set…absolutely nothing.
Spotify
by $Mike$$$ on 2020/12/24 17:03
Please make up with Spotify
Super Evil Greed Move
by jazzresin on 2020/12/24 05:35
Pitiful. Tricked into a subscription service without warning and no longer able to access the previous working version. Poor show. Very poor ethics and morals. If i cant have the previous version then i deserve money back then. You SHOULD have been much more concise. You all are thuggish cash grab thiefs.
It was great until the new update (3.0)
by TonyTheTiger92 on 2020/12/24 02:37
I bought the subscription after the trial because the app was working great and I loved that I was able to use every single song I had on my Spotify account. Then came the 3.0 version, which sounded great, maybe I read and understood wrong what was mentioned about the 3.0 update, and now over 50% of my Spotify music I “sync” is not available. It makes it hard and almost boring to mix now unless you only mix mainstream music. I say bring back the Spotify accounts to full usage again, add SoundCloud too and you’d be the best 3rd party Dj app. Especially for us Spotify users. For now, I am ending my subscription until most or all of my Spotify songs are available to use again. Sorry Pacemaker, but you shouldn’t have changed, and could’ve done better with the 3.0. Possibly use the “headphones” button to actually listen to the song without interrupting what is currently playing to help mix smoother. I may come back once I see it be great again.
It used to work
by bigroller69 on 2020/12/23 17:53
I downloaded this app in October 2020 and it worked fine with the free version, I was able to upload tracks and mix them together but once I updated to the new 3.0 version all my mixes and favorite music was gone from the app. If you want to mix whatever music you like from Spotify I WOULD NOT USE THIS APP (in the state it’s in right now)
Do not Get Packmaker!
by DevinTheMusicFan2000 on 2020/12/23 03:04
I been a Pacemaker User as long as I can remember! Everything was great till now! So recently they updated their app, removing Spotify. Instead they license the tracks from Sony and Warner. And everytime I add tracks to my mix it says it’s not licensed! What the heck? This is a scam! Do not get! You won’t have a great experience! And also, $5 a week for the subscription so you can use the app? That’s greedy! Do not waste your money on this scammy app! I would not recommend using this. I repeat, DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!
Ha! What a joke for an appp
by greyson1993 on 2020/12/22 21:19
If I could leave 0 stars I would. You thought blocking me on Instagram would keep me from getting the word out but NOPE. For an app the user pays for this thing constantly glitches and freezes. The new update literally wrecked all of your playlist and removed THOUSANDS of songs from the set list to choose from. “Stick with us” they said after 🥴 don’t waste your time or money you will only have about 10% of your music in your library to use. Maybe 1% of that will actually mix and then it will glitch anyway. I’m choosing not to curse so this doesn’t get taken off but rest assure I would if I could.
Wow
by YungBakedPasta on 2020/12/22 17:05
Went from Spotify music to limited music to absolutely no music at all! I made an entire playlist for work based off what was available just to have a message pop up saying you’d didn’t have the license for any of the music that I used from THIS APP. So frustrating!
Fun for mixing my Spotify music
by DripMonsterLLC on 2020/12/22 13:54
This app WAS super fun to play DJ. I paid for the previous $10/yr subscription, once I updated the app they are now asking for $5weekly, Ha... This is in NO WAY an app worth $260/yr... Sorry, The 2 stars is because of this ridiculous PRICE HIKE. The NEW way to get Robbed, $250 increase🤣
Hate the update
by Qtsmom on 2020/12/22 10:27
Terrible that all of my playlists no longer contain the same songs because of the change with Spotify. When asked to update it tells you you can’t go back to the previous version but NEVER mentioned that you may lose most of your songs & your playlists skip around. Terrible. Will be deleting and canceling my subscription.
Long Time User
by dafitime on 2020/12/21 19:20
Been using this app for quite a while with the bugs slowly and finally getting resolved. Because of Spotify support contracts rippling the entire DJ industry, it’s pretty upsetting that you didn’t utilize Tidal instead, like all other DJ apps. It was nice knowing y’all.
App just got ruined.
by Oink391 on 2020/12/21 16:30
It’s no longer free. The Spotify partnership has ended and now you’re forced to use their subscription model to use the app at all. I’m disappointed, but the app definitely isn’t worth the money, so on to something else. I just wish I could at least log in and access my old stuff but they won’t even let me look at my account now.
One of the best apps ever. Now gone bye bye with 2020.
by rockyfeller1 on 2020/12/21 11:54
This was one of the best DJ apps ever. It makes seamless smooth mixes and allows you to skip parts of the song seamlessly and better than any other app. Functionality is way too basic. No need to overcomplicate things but with a few tweaks it could be perfect. I’d GLADLY pay around $5 month for this. But subscription prices are way way too high. And lastly: SPOTIFY is no longer supported?? Forget the free version now. It was fun while it lasted. I’ve now deleted this app. Sad because the underlying seamless operation of this app is the best out there.
The new update is horrible
by Retrosister219 on 2020/12/21 11:29
I am not a fan of the new update. I knew there may be some gaps in my playlists but not half the playlist missing. Playlists I took hours to make which are now gone. Seriously considering switching to another app. And update its now going to cost $16 per month instead of $35 for the whole year when I’m hearing from other whose renewal was a few weeks ago they got it for $35. Thanks a lot pacemaker
Not worth the money anymore
by rogerdoger1235 on 2020/12/21 10:46
This app has been slowly going downhill. With the new update its not really even worth having anymore. On top if it working less it is costing way more for a fraction of its abililty. Regardless if its spotify who pulled their use away. Not worth the expensive prices
What a MESS
by TONY VALLE on 2020/12/21 09:38
Used to be the best APP in the whole world NOW I’ll say it’s the worst. Since last update this December 2020. Sorry, I’m just being very honest.
It used to be great
by c-kane on 2020/12/21 06:32
Whatever happened for Pacemaker to lose the right to play most of my Spotify music (which in the newest version I can’t do) goes straight to the opposite scenario on which I’m willing to pay 5 bucks a week to use it.
Soul crushing for OTF
by corbincn on 2020/12/21 02:33
There has to be something done so all do our mixes we rely on and have our countless hours into making don’t disappear. Also we already ou for Spotify I refuse to pay for pacemaker when the new update won’t allow me to keep my old mixes as is. Work harder to make things work with Spotify. You have cherished every soul of every OTF coach.
3.0 is no good
by VPG7478 on 2020/12/20 22:53
Ever since the update I have not been able to play or create anymore new mixtapes. Uninstalled. 👎
New update
by jude.-. on 2020/12/20 22:43
It’s now hard to navigate and many songs I previously used cannot be used, ruined the app for me.
Unnecessary update and expensive price tag
by bmoo fitness on 2020/12/20 16:45
I’ve had the app for a couple of years and loved how it helps me mix playlists. It works seamlessly with Spotify. The latest update undoes everything I’ve enjoyed with the app. It’s eliminated half my music options so finding and blending music is more difficult. Then it wants to charge $15/mo for access. Not sure what the money grab is for, but the app isn’t worth it. I’m sorry, the app with trash now.
Very disappointed
by jckeishcndkshxnviehsbkde on 2020/12/20 03:31
I have used this app for 2 years now without having to pay a dime. And I just recently made a new mixtape, but now it’s requiring me to pay. Fair enough, so I went for it. BUT now they aren’t allowing you to get whatever song you want. They limit your song choices.
Changes on pacemaker
by Kevsjac277 on 2020/12/20 02:02
I think Pacemaker should stay with Spotify premium... there are a lot of complaints about this problem. It was the best mix music until they decided to be independent and I think is good but now there are a lot mix that you can’t play because of the update It should be as the beginning, but anyways I hope they solve that part of the music.
New update is not good
by BlasianFTW on 2020/12/19 20:46
I can’t even use the majority of my songs because there not licensed. I never had this problem beforehand.
Now A Paywall
by Blahberama on 2020/12/19 17:22
Was the greatest app to use until the subscription became a costly $5 per week. No thank you. Bad developers making the harsh transition to a paid only app.
Expensive
by amejro on 2020/12/19 16:48
You need to pay so much just to use the app. You literally can’t do anything on it for free without the Pacemaker+ purchase screen popping up
Useless now
by AAJI12 on 2020/12/19 16:27
I have a huge library of music on my phone that is not on Apple Music or Spotify, after the 3.0 update none of it plays any more. Bad update, useless app.
Garbage 3.0
by Mc fresh85 on 2020/12/19 13:17
This update is garbage to me now delete. Spotify mixes tracks better than this app it sat
$20/mo for an app I already bought?
by Djpresstone on 2020/12/19 13:12
Bought this software early on, and it seems to work now the same way it did when I first bought it. No major new functionality with significant appeal. Enjoyed it so much I gladly paid for all the in-app purchases. Now I can’t use the app unless I pay an additional $5/wk? If I thought Pacemaker would shift its pricing model to such a greedy subscription rate, I would not have paid for the in-app purchases. Price point is way off-base... realistically I’d consider $5/year, or MAYBE $0.99/mo.
They just ripped us loyal mixers off
by Tag Carlson on 2020/12/19 04:20
We use to be able to pay for Spotify premium and be able to mix songs, but now they weren’t making enough money so they charge us for songs we mix! I can’t even play my mixes anymore because “pacemaker 3.0 includes over 30 million tracks” so you have to pay $5.00 a month for absolutely for the songs! You have a great system, I’ll give you that! But count me out if I have to pay for a past time! #rewindwhileyoustillcan #wewanttheoldpacemaker
The worst app ever I can’t believe y’all took away our favorite songs
by dcudjoe00 on 2020/12/19 04:17
I can’t believe y’all took away our favorite songs
Way too expensive
by Limonic316 on 2020/12/19 02:21
App is way too expensive for what it does. Monthly subscription is not worth it.
SCAM!! Having to pay for 3.0 wasn’t disclosed when the option to switch was given!
by Jav_eee on 2020/12/19 01:56
I was tricked into thinking 3.0 was free. There was no effort made to disclose a fee when the decision was to be made. SCAM!!!
This app has been gutted
by getms420 on 2020/12/18 22:07
What happened to this app can’t even do anything because you have to pay for premium. You pay for premium guess what now you have limited songs to even use so those nice playlist you probably spent hours even days mixing are all now chopped up. So there’s no real way to even fixingThis app even if you’re trying hard enough to work around your limitations I’m disappointed this was the one app that made it easy to mix music now it is just another money hungry trash of a service
$5... a WEEK
by Gruhlke on 2020/12/18 20:58
Got Spotify premium to mix some crazy playlists. Spotify removed, playlists removed, before I can hear a song I must pay $5. Good bye Pacemaker, but also goodbye Spotify premium.
DO NOT UPDATE TO VERSION IF YOU WANT TO KEEP YOUR PLAYLISTS
by a_orbit on 2020/12/18 20:56
I loved using this app to make smooth playlists. I wish I had a warning beforehand that would’ve told me that NEARLY ALL of the ones I put together on there would be gone. They’re all now pretty much completely obsolete since they took away Spotify access. Not to say I agree with Spotify as a company, but this was a move played too soon IMO. Should’ve waited until there were more songs available on your collective catalog before detaching from the amount of music held by what’s arguably the biggest streaming service right now. Disappointed that I can’t use the app anymore like I have for years. :(
Confusing upgrade
by rad115 on 2020/12/18 20:28
I was worried when I updated that I couldn’t play my own music collection. It took a few restarts to get the cancel button to show up on the promo screen. After I had to enable Apple Music and quit the app before my local library would show up. Hope this helps other users.
Mad Coach
by k8m1234 on 2020/12/18 20:26
This app is a great idea with awful execution. As a Group Fitness coach it is crucial for me to have music to keep the energy alive in the room. I have spent countless hours making playlists that my clients love. To create an update for an app that would ultimately take away thousands of songs and ruin playlists that I have spent many hours on as well as many other coaches is just stupid. This app is hard to figure out how to use - once you figure it out on your own it is fine but ultimately it is not worth the cost. It randomly will log you out of Spotify and will often times crash during my classes. Please do better if you are going to charge $5 a week.
Change for the worse
by zer09ine on 2020/12/18 20:03
Took away songs, no access without pay, can’t even use my own local files without Pacemaker+. Ruined a great thing- now literally unusable. Shame!
Don’t do it
by brittanyloooooo on 2020/12/18 19:19
latest update is trash, making this app unusable. Update: might as well take this as a sign to develop my own app and leave it free. What ya think?
Keep Spotify linked
by jdjc0911 on 2020/12/18 18:57
Pacemaker is great— but only if a premium spiritual is linked. Without it, huge gaps between songs, which is NOT what we want. So much work into making playlists and now that pacemaker and Spotify are breaking up, I don’t see me using Pacemaker much longer. Unless they stick with Spotify.
They want me to pay to have fun
by flielsfhfdx on 2020/12/18 12:56
I don’t wanna pay I was fine listening and mixing for free but now they have to ruin it for me!!!
Works well but
by Livedangeruss on 2020/12/18 12:20
Such an amazing app but I wish it hadn’t “removed the need for Spotify.” If there was an option or an extra fee to NOT do that I’d be all for it. As a fitness coach for a few years I’m in the boat of losing dozens of hours of editing and some of my best songs on my best playlists and it’s a pretty big bummer. Wish I hadn’t paid to upgrade the Plus version for losing 80% of the music library and hours and hours of editing.
the app was great to have, until...
by kaylebarm on 2020/12/18 05:31
this app was great to have, until they made most of the music unavailable. i would make playlists for work and for home and road trips that would last about 4 hours long. now half of the songs are now unavailable to play due to Pacemaker 3.0
December 2020 Dark Vision
by DJ KINGDOM DECIPLE on 2020/12/18 02:54
Just now I wanted to rock on heart beats pacemaker app I’m just causal DJ myself Spotify which is my favorite I use on pace maker to mix songs; the older pacemaker was better way to spin but now it offer me to update to newer versions and it’s is bad update I saw, can’t see half of my play list from Spotify here on pacemaker it says “pacemaker can’t find your songs so it’s my decision now to out goes pacemaker I don’t care as much as you don’t care I’m ending my subscription bye bye, over to Serato DJ pro with my Numark controller
Beyond disappointed
by Heavensbeee on 2020/12/18 01:54
From sneakily being charged $5 per week by DEFAULT when I clearly would have paid $30 for a year, and version 3 which decimates all existing playlists and the hours that went into them, I am beyond disappointed in the way this team runs this app. Maybe have your act together before pulling the rug out on literally every one of your loyal paying users.
New 3.0 version is completely unsatisfactory
by 5incl4ir on 2020/12/18 01:35
I have been using this app and paying for it for the last several years and absolutely loved it. But since this new 3.0 update,I can only access a quarter of the songs from my old mixes. A 60 min playlist is now 15 min long at best. Not only can I not use my mixes anymore but everyone else’s mixes only have about a 1/4 of the songs in them as well. The selection that is available on there now is unsatisfactory to say the least. If pacemaker cannot get access to all of these songs back, I will have to cancel my subscription and use another app such as Rock My Run or Fit Radio instead. This app created a passion for me in making my own playlists for my classes. I feel like a part of me is lost now without it. Do not get this app unless they can get the rights back to all of the music they previously had! Make this right Pacemaker
Only works half the time
by Cotheadh on 2020/12/18 01:12
This app crashes randomly. Definitely has some kinks to workout. The latest update is apparently terrible
Don’t update!
by Fillthetub on 2020/12/18 01:02
So sad to see this update. After separating from Spotify all my mixtapes I use on a regular basis are unplayable with huge gaps. This was my sole use for music during workouts I coach because it was the best! Now, unfortunately, it’s not. Please revert!
HORRIBLE AFTER UPDATE
by Fjgcrfsgh on 2020/12/18 00:40
This was the best app for fitness coaches to mix and share music with each other. Studio members loved these mixes and it was great to be able to use other fitness coaches’ mixes. Now after the update there are thousands of songs missing and playlists that are no longer available.
Recent update Terrible!!!
by 44LOCO on 2020/12/18 00:28
They recently updated the app claiming to eliminate the need for the Spotify premium, but once you update you can’t play anything anymore.
WORST DAY EVER..
by bbriannakayy on 2020/12/18 00:07
I cannot believe the time I spent on mixing playlists, only for all of it to be taken from me in a blink of an eye. I want my money back. I can’t believe the break up between Spotify and pacemaker. So many of my co workers use this app that we rely on.. now it’s completely gone and erased. Do not get this app. Absolutely terrible communication and way of doing business.
Used to love...
by nattywilk on 2020/12/17 23:54
This app was BOMB to make playlists for coaching fitness classes. With the new update, and apparent breakup with Spotify, so much has been lost. And now I’m lost and back to square one with where I go for amazing playlists and music. *excuse me while I go cry *
Update
by ajaidbiwjshaondbkakbsghsgajjsn on 2020/12/17 23:44
Please reverse the new update 😭
What’s is the point of this update?
by anonymouse123276 on 2020/12/17 23:33
What was the point of this update if i still cannot use the music for free. I think the app should be free or allow me to at-least hear someone else's tracks for free.
Very expensive - half of playlist missing with new update
by mariaewebber on 2020/12/17 21:17
Get rid of the new update!! Please!!
LET US KEEP OUR MUSIC PLEASE
by otfcoachk on 2020/12/17 20:17
As a fitness coach, pacemaker is an amazing app to let us personalize our playlists without having to play with our phone to change songs. I’ve been using this app religiously for years and have about 200 mixtapes I recycle and continue to make new ones. But PLEASE, LET US KEEP OUR MUSIC!! Too many changes in music licensing and we are losing all of our past playlists with updates. Please, keep it the same and let us keep the playlists already made and don’t take our songs away!!
The app has been ruined. Terrible.
by Kendramaa on 2020/12/17 18:16
Since pacemaker has ended its relationship with Spotify, they have done an AWFUL job of updating a full music library, leaving those of us who have spent hundreds of hours curating amazing playlists that our members loved with NOTHING. Every playlist made on this app prior to today has been destroyed because pacemaker does not have enough music in their library, so we have been left with disjointed playlists. Hundreds of hours of work down the tubes. I could not be more upset or disappointed. Orangetheory coaches nationwide are literally devastated and so disappointed, myself included. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY ON THIS APP unless they actually come up with a genuine solution to this problem. And screw Spotify too while we’re at it, I’m ending that subscription as well.
90% of all tracks are not licensed...
by AL3X_360 on 2020/12/17 17:56
... therefore what the f* is the point of downloading this ridiculous app if you can’t mix any of your playlists. Syncing through spotify yet none of my playlists can mix - and I’m talking mainstream music and popular songs. Garbage.
SO Frustrated!!!
by OrangeTheory Coach on 2020/12/17 17:32
Absolutely Love this app & have created multiple playlists over the past year for my work as a coach within the fitness industry. However NOW the “detach from Spotify” has caused ALL of these playlists to be affected. As a Coach whose members absolutely love the playlists for their workouts & PaceMaker has always been my go to ... this is so frustrating! Surely Pacemaker (especially with the subscription we pay) can come to a deal with Spotify to keep them whole - but to lose all these playlists and the impact to SO many coaches causes one to seriously question the management & value of this app.
Was great, now not so much
by PacemakerForThePeople on 2020/12/17 17:24
first things first, DO NOT UPDATE THIS APP As a fitness coach, this app was a gem making music. Our clients absolutely love the playlists we make as coaches. Used to be so easy to mix songs together. Now all of us coaches (nation wide) are having issues with the app in the sense of mixing songs and losing playlists. I’m talking losing HUNDREDS of songs and NUMEROUS playlists after YEARS of work. Hoping this message gets out to the creators to fix the changes 🙏
Bro 4.99? A week

The app won’t open

pls help
All the good music ... gone.
by ELH15431 on 2020/12/17 16:50
The shift away from Spotify is a disaster. Starting from scratch entirely; all my favorite hits are gone.
New update is AWFUL
by amandaP1234556789 on 2020/12/17 16:49
I will be canceling my subscription if this new update stays. Hours of time wasted since half of my songs are now gone.
new update
by kaydencekoerberdawg on 2020/12/17 16:41
With the new update, I cant play anything. I don’t have Pacemaker+, and there’s no way I’m going to get it because it’s ridiculously overpriced.
Fix big please!
by Dubstepmkzer on 2020/12/17 13:31
Terrible update!!!! In their older version, you were able to blend so much easier. And it recognizes each song. If y’all don’t fix the blending, and the way that it doesn’t recognize the next song, I’m done with the app
This is useless without Spotify
by Mikeofwhite on 2020/12/17 12:24
I’m out until something changes.
Horrible
by 1-800-rachel on 2020/12/17 09:10
You literally have to pay to even use it
Don’t Update to 3.0
by SoMichael on 2020/12/17 07:10
I used to love this app. Would use it’s automix feature when I want a simple mixtape for a night walk or drive. I was able to do that for free even if I couldn’t adjust the weird transitions or levels. Something I was fine with. The auto mixing feature on this app is amazing and the best I have seen for a quick to go mix. But unfortunately, you have to pay $8 a WEEK to use this app now. I get every app developer needs money and there are music licensing issues that Pacemaker has been dealing with, but I have no idea why they won’t let free users exist on the app anymore. I have used this app for about a year now and loved it. I wished I could just do a one time buy to keep using it. I would easily pay $15 dollars or so for it, but the subscription model as finally turned me away and made it unusable for free users. I can’t justify spending over 20 bucks a month for a mixing app, and I have a feeling most people won’t either.
New Update Ruins App
by riordan10 on 2020/12/17 06:34
The 3.0 update makes it so any old mixes you’ve done that had a potentially unlicensed track through Spotify now no longer play. That is countless hours of time, hard work, and dedication gone. I’d this isn’t fixed I will be leaving the app for good, because issues like this along with bugs have plagued this app and the many months I’ve used it. DO NOT GIVE THEN YOUR MONEY.
DO NOT UPDATE!!!
by Nitin Ramchandani on 2020/12/16 16:29
After the new update i.e. 3.0 the developers are asking subscription amount even for mixing local tracks stored on iPhone Music Library. I even lost my effects bundle purchase made last year. My humble request to kindly revert the changes made. Deleted the app for now.
Can not open with update
by keith_otf_76 on 2020/12/16 13:32
Can’t even open the app with the new update. Good thing I stopped paying for this last month.
Great app...with a price
by Pieeater69 on 2020/12/14 20:17
Does everything I want out of a DJ app- music mixing and finding music. The almost too huge of a downside is of course the subscription service which I do want to pay for- albeit it’s 5 dollars a WEEK. Be wary. If you don’t pay the app starts to mysteriously act up and never work quite right however it’s still a great interface and easy way into DJ’ing
$4.99/week..??? Seriously?!
by Ni-Ck-Na on 2020/12/14 19:55
Crazy expensive. Not worth it.
Spotify and UI worse
by krisswanson2 on 2020/12/13 09:07
Lastest update forces a Spotify log in making it hard to find your own tracks quickly. Also UI update makes it impossible to see the difference between two tracks when blending. Please revert.
Why
by izzyglizzy on 2020/12/10 13:08
Why now I have to login to my Spotify account
Pretty amazing app (for me)
by KoaGrenz on 2020/05/17 06:48
I saw this app a long time ago while scrolling through story’s on Instagram, and I thought nothing of it. This time I saw it again, and I thought “hmm, maybe I should just give it a try”. Well dam is it amazing! It may be a little hard to understand how things work at first, But it’s easy to figure out. So nothing to bad. I already made a 3 1/2 hour mix of songs I love! This is a game changer for me and my friends who want a homemade radio station type vibe. And I mean can we talk about the transitions! 👌🏽😩 honestly for me they’re amazing! What can I say, 5 stars my friend.
Almost love at first sight
by jingai on 2019/03/26 02:11
Where to start? Was getting into it... tried to add a new effect. All it suggests is some crazy $5 A WEEK subscription. Sorry, this is NOT a $260 a year app by any means. Where are the individual effect purchases listed on the App Store? That’s super reasonable and a pretty awesome business model. Then I’m getting used to it and getting into it and jamming, then suddenly it jumps to the very beginning of my mix and I’m like what the heck is going on?! Where’s the play head? Sorry. This app is so desperately needed... perfect working and functional contrast to the other lead dj app here. Fix the biz model and back button UX mess, and you could win. Do NOT make this a forced subscription for FX. Check reviews of that other app, and you’ll see they get nothing but grief from let down customers. Good luck. Hope you make the right choices. I was seriously ready to give you $10 right off the bat for the FX pack, but can’t even figure out how to do that the UX is so bad. Way to ruin our first date. Don’t want to, but maybe have to move on.
Most expensive app I pay for, is it worth it?
by evanovich555 on 2019/04/17 19:49
I pay more than any other app for this, $15 every 3 months....and EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. I load up the app I am confronted with “Do you like Pacemaker? Leave us a review! No? Tell us why!” and have to perform thumb gymnastics to get to the TINY X at the very top right of my 8+ screen. Their blatant disregard of the “In-App Ratings & Reviews” setting in the appstore (and Apple’s lack of enforcement) are very disenchanting for my most expensive app. I second other reviews about the dismay of the fx being subscription based. I understand the “it costs money to make all the wheels go around and provide our users with a killer app and constant upgrades” mentality but that doesn’t jive with the amount of money the developer makes from sales of the vast and unique data harvested from us users. Not to mention they most likely already have oodles of venture capital... YES the ui/ux is way slick. However, navigating around users, globals, recommends is a cumbersome nightmare. The inability to adjust the BPMs from track to track is a joke and almost defeats the entire purpose. WHY ARE THE IPAD APP AND THE IPHONE APP SO RADICALLY DIFFERENT!? The features avail on ipad are sorely needed on the iphone version and vice versa. Again, for the amount of money I pay, I would expect more. All these rants aside, I still use the app and the automix feature does a freakishly good job most of the time.
A Cluster of Bad UI with confusing and pointless features.
by ComedyDZN on 2019/12/20 00:31
I feel like the developers wanted to make a sleek and fluid app UI, which I totally applaud. It’s almost 2020 and ugly apps just aren’t it. That being said, there is an extent to which trying to oversimplify stuff that already works just doesn’t help. Navigating the app is an absolute NIGHTMARE. Confusing main menus literally make it so hard to find the simplest stuff. I was in the middle of my 300 minute playlist of the Godspeed You! Black Emperor playlist and decided to go looking at other playlists; but when I was scrolling through the laggy and annoyingly heavy-feeling public playlists, it would select a random playlist because it cares more about being a good looking, fundamentally broken, and annoyingly dumbed down app. You guys feel like it is a good idea to restrict so much view space and go for this abomination of an app style. Seriously reconsider.
New 3.0 version is completely unsatisfactory
by 5incl4ir on 2020/12/18 01:35
I have been using this app and paying for it for the last several years and absolutely loved it. But since this new 3.0 update,I can only access a quarter of the songs from my old mixes. A 60 min playlist is now 15 min long at best. Not only can I not use my mixes anymore but everyone else’s mixes only have about a 1/4 of the songs in them as well. The selection that is available on there now is unsatisfactory to say the least. If pacemaker cannot get access to all of these songs back, I will have to cancel my subscription and use another app such as Rock My Run or Fit Radio instead. This app created a passion for me in making my own playlists for my classes. I feel like a part of me is lost now without it. Do not get this app unless they can get the rights back to all of the music they previously had! Make this right Pacemaker
Great Idea, Poor Execution
by Animaldrummer04 on 2017/10/02 21:01
On a surface level, this is a great app. I appreciate the BPM analyzer recommending potential next tracks when building a playlist, and the editing ability (pro subscription) is good. However, for the life of me I cannot understand why - if you were only going to allow playlist creation and editing on one platform - you would choose iPhone over iPad. Maybe the developers are under the impression that “less is more” when it comes to screen real estate, but I’m here to tell you that that is not the case. At all. Very frustrating having to edit on such a small screen - and I have a 6s+! For this reason, I am searching for another (more user friendly) way to edit my playlists. My sausage fingers have had enough with this app.
Good app
by jonatheibart on 2019/03/15 17:53
Though I wish it worked with Apple Music (which I know is beyond the developers’ control and is the same for all these types of apps) this app is definitely the best of its kind. That being said there are various glitches, like sometimes it plays the songs as if they have been mixed but doesn’t show that they have been and doesn’t allow you to move the tracks and edit them; restarting the app usually fixes this but not always. Also I wish there was an easier way to choose the order of the tracks rather than scrolling endlessly, and I wish that you could import a whole playlist in the order that the playlist is in rather than mixing a few songs from it.
You need some serious updates
by Imbad3423 on 2019/12/31 13:36
I’m a set it and forget it type of guy. With that being said I purchased this app so I could make kill playlists with the feel of a DJ controlling everything. Using this app started of as a good thing but as of late as I’ve been using this app the playlists have been crashing halfway at random spots and cutting short of the playlist times. Since use this app for my group fitness classes these crashes in the app makes for uncomfortable silences at points in the class in which the energy from the music is needed most. I’ve tried emailing support but they don’t seem to really care. If this continues to be the case and updates aren’t made to solve this problem then I will have no issue with cancelling my subscription.
This used to be a good application.
by micah 44 on 2017/11/16 19:01
As a completely blind person who is a DJ, are used to love this app. Granted, manually mixing on other apps is doable on the iPhone, but without any physical controller in my hand, it was more difficult. This app was even smart enough to change the EQ of the tracks depending on what part was playing. It was even smart enough to cut the tracks off at the exact times, just like a normal DJ would. However, The update that brought this social features to this app has completely ruined the accessibility, therefore making the app completely useless to people like me. And that was over two years ago, and it has not been fixed. Please make this app accessible again as soon as possible. I actually depended on your app whenever I was too tired to mix myself.
Great for exercising!!!
by W477Y on 2017/08/05 20:18
I use this app at the gym and while running. I can load any of my iTunes playlists of individual tracks and it's like a DJ is mixing my playlist for me. Granted the transitions from track to track aren't always that great, but other times the transitions are amazing! No more downtime while tracks are ending and starting. The intensity of my runs and work outs has drastically increased because of this app. Some options I'd like to see and even be willing to pay for are... 1.the ability to rate a transition so the app can learn when it's working well and when it's not. 2.When I'm in the lock out screen and I hit the next track button it jumps the current song ahead to where the app was planning on mixing the next track instead of forcing the mix at that point like it will do when inside the app. Again, love this app even though I don't use it for its intended purpose.
Perfect for group fitness
by Emilia R. S. on 2018/12/27 02:39
Really cool app! Highly recommend if you’re a trainer who gets to pick their music for fitness classes. Love being able to create my own mixes without an awkward pause and without having to play the entire song. I’ve had multiple problems with my account login information, my app quitting suddenly, or my subscription (even though I paid for a year already). However, I still rate 5 stars because of the amazing customer service/support team.
There’s no point in buying this
by jayden mogan on 2020/12/06 19:27
When I was getting it it was free so ya know I thought it was gonna be free I could make some pretty good music and mashups but when I loaded in it was just a stupid scam that I had to pay 7.99$ for per month for no reason it’s nothing so idk why I have to pay for it at least just make it free to use and have it free where we could use it there are just some features that require payment instead of making the whole app 7.99$ for nothing
Psyerxes
by Sinai.Daqiqi on 2018/04/18 12:41
Using this app isn’t fun anymore just because of the new technology you’re using. Your team says that the new analyzer technology can’t gather the songs information in the other hand i can’t play with spoty music cause if the net is on push notifications distribs the volume while I’m palying in party. Please make the analyzer work with local musics. It’s getting on my nerves and i have to use other apps that do the same. Please make it happen.
Buggy
by fireant123456789 on 2020/11/12 21:56
Hi, ive been playing with this app for a while now and I loce it. But if I'm going to pay this much for it, I would really appreciate if you guys could squash at least most of the bugs. On my iPhone 12, I have experienced spontaneous crashes, the scrubber completely ignoring me when I touch it with my finger, and most of all, when I add a new song, very often there is not transition that shows up on the timeline and pressing that little lightning button literally does nothing (even when I jam it repeatedly). The fix for all of these issues is always the same, restart the all. But it's frustrating how often I need to do this
New and Frustrated with No Help fr Pacemaker
by MSSLNX on 2019/11/29 22:53
I’m new to Apple products and Pacemaker. I have painfully and unsuccessfully searched for tutorials and information on how to use my iPod and iPad for pacemaker. I can’t change the bpm on my iPod with pacemaker, but I can sync the bpm on my iPad. I can save a plalylist on my iPod, but I can’t save a playlist or mix on my iPad. I can’t use my iTunes on either because my tracks are now with Apple Music. I purchased the year subscription for an app that is not integrated and does not have the same functionality on the iPod and the iPad! Im frustrated and disappointed that I wasted so much money and time in this app, the iPod and the iPad. We have sent emails to Pacemaker and have not received any response.
My favorite instrument besides guitar
by fishypapas on 2020/04/16 07:41
I’ve been using this app for years to transcribe music. Easy to loop specific parts then slow them down. And it’s great for making loops to practice playing over. I love the flat graphic style of this app and glad the team has resisted the temptation to bloat it with junk. Some nice motion design details all over, from the screen transitions to the little icons that pulse when they’re on. Inspiring stuff.
Wow, This is amazing!
by Lbs anderson on 2018/12/31 01:39
I’ve been using this app to create special mixes for different events such as New Year’s Eve and it killed it! Yes, the transitions may be a little bad sometimes, but an app this great has to have at least one flaw. Other apps you have to pay to use or are just to complicated. But not this one! I’ve been looking for an app like this for awhile, so glad I found this!!!!!!!!
Ha! What a joke for an appp
by greyson1993 on 2020/12/22 21:19
If I could leave 0 stars I would. You thought blocking me on Instagram would keep me from getting the word out but NOPE. For an app the user pays for this thing constantly glitches and freezes. The new update literally wrecked all of your playlist and removed THOUSANDS of songs from the set list to choose from. “Stick with us” they said after 🥴 don’t waste your time or money you will only have about 10% of your music in your library to use. Maybe 1% of that will actually mix and then it will glitch anyway. I’m choosing not to curse so this doesn’t get taken off but rest assure I would if I could.
Top in Its Class
by Kcbnyc on 2019/09/25 14:24
Pacemaker is a very cool app. Better than Pyro (IMHO). Will it replace Traktor or DJ Pro? No. However, if you want to throw together a nice mix tape for the workout, party, or road trip then this is a fun And easy app to use. The graphics are great. I love the community of mixers! I can always find excellent mix tapes. If this could detect bars and phrases of tracks, it would be out of this world. $4.95/week is a little steep. Especially since traktor costs around $150. The ability to export the track list would be awesome!

Fix ur app❤️
by drebyron on 2020/11/11 08:27
This app is the best at what it does, I’ve tried a lot of these apps. The matching AI is good. The auto mixing isn’t great, but why get a mixing app if you’re not going to do it yourself you know. But my main concern is that at random times this app gets unbearably glitchy. I’ll play around with two songs and when I listen back to the stitch, my actions don’t register and I have to refresh the app to try again. Again, I love this app but it’s been out too long for it to be acting up like it does. Please fix, thanks.
Amazing and so much fun!
by JohnnyDubstarWhite on 2018/02/20 13:11
This app is so awesome. It seas designed very well and makes it incredibly easy to put seamless mixes together. And if you are more experienced you can really blend some tracks together into something special. I’ve mixed a couple playlists together to use while coaching my Orangetheory Fitness classes and they were a hit! And making mixes can be highly addicting! 🤪🙌🏼
So many glitches
by Torismash on 2020/02/19 14:26
Pacemaker glitches constantly. Will not play playlists or gets stuck on the same songs. I’ve submitted for help before with no reply. I recently downloaded pyro to replace it and haven’t had any issues. I absolutely do not recommend pacemaker to anyone especially those that use it for group fitness classes. It’s caused far too many problems and to pay what I do monthly such a simple issue should not be recurring. I’m shocked that there aren’t more reviews stating this bc the company I work for I hear multiple complaints about the same issue daily.
Confusing upgrade
by rad115 on 2020/12/18 20:28
I was worried when I updated that I couldn’t play my own music collection. It took a few restarts to get the cancel button to show up on the promo screen. After I had to enable Apple Music and quit the app before my local library would show up. Hope this helps other users.
Tempo changer?
by HotDoggggss on 2018/03/05 19:05
Did you take out the tempo feature because that was the only reason I got the app Do you think it would be possible to add the tempo changer to the next update??? I don't have an iPad and I find that feature the most useful? I love the app by the way I just wish it had that one extra feature
Honestly I was loving this App until...
by ColeGoddard on 2020/02/19 01:26
It started crashing anytime I tried playing one of my playlists. I’m an instructor and rely on this app to hit sprints perfectly and now I can’t even play music through it anymore. Please for the love of music and teaching fix this immediately. It was very buggy from the beginning often times not letting me edit transitions in the moment or I’d start a playlist and it would only play the first song and then stop. But now I can’t play my playlists at all!
Needs Work
by Unhappy Camper Pro on 2019/02/09 19:54
Unfortunately, the iPhone version is a huge disappointment when compared to the iPad version, the absence of some of the most useful features renders this version useless. It’s essentially an app offering song matching based on BPM as its greatest asset, I don’t want to be unkind, but otherwise it’s just a glorified fade/transition tool. Not useful at all, even with the extra features available for purchase. I’m not sure who could actually find great benefit from using this app. It won’t mix anything for you, which is fine, but it won’t allow you to adjust songs to match each other either, so that part is definitely deceptive. Update: being able to adjust transitions between songs isn’t that groundbreaking. I’m not sure of why the functionality is so limited in the mobile version. Maybe to encourage purchase of the iPad version? I don’t know.
Downloaded and nothing
by jamscottie on 2018/12/30 12:00
As my title says, I downloaded the app and I only get the splash screen. It finally opened and I looked at the mix that was available, saw I have 10 sessions, listened to the one mix that was available, and I get bumped to 6 sessions available.. how is that when I only listen, is that the way the app works? There is a seven day free trail, I’m not dutifully I’m interested...so what’s the deal, I actually get in on Monday , do a mix, listen seven times and it’s Sunday... seven days pass by? Yeah, don’t think I want the hassle or the hustle.
Couldn’t be happier than without it!
by Hihihihihihihihibitch on 2020/08/29 10:57
Sorry for the rough riding, glad you made it Bro. All of you included in that gender neutral usage of the word “Bro”, including those I may have forgotten to forgive. I forgive and love and acknowledge and value all of you not to mention I owe you all some big bucks. I’m sure we’ll be able to work it out now that I’ve graduated :). Cool, cool cool cool cool cool cool cool cool beesZzzzzZ.
Needs to Support Apple Music
by aaplsauce on 2017/07/16 22:18
This application is mind blowing. It is incredible what it's capable of. My only gripe is that I can't use tracks from Apple Music. Not sure what it will take, but this app needs to support Apple Music tracks. Apple, please allow developers to have access to Apple Music tracks for use in fantastic apps like this.
Please bring the mashup feature free and not a monthly payment thing

I didn’t really meant to say that I want to go to the owner’s house I was just very angry, but if you make the mashup feature free and comes with app first thing it can bring so much more people to the app and not delete right away when they find out that the one main feature of the app is paid because almost no one wants to pay for a feature in a app like digital currency in a mobile app so please make that feature free it will make me and others very happy.
Expensive novelty
by Diddle my fiddle on 2019/12/20 08:41
This app could be pretty useful and more convenient if we were able to save mixes offline, had more control over how we cut the music up, and just general bug fixes. The app tends to get very weird when you use it for prolonged periods. While I understand that not all of this is in their control, what is in their control is the cost, For a fun little novelty they charge $5 a week, or $8 a month!
It’s really good, except
by PMelissaK on 2018/06/25 18:21
Okay of all the free DJ apps I’ve gotten this one is sooo good and easy to use! However I don’t like that I can’t cut the beginnings off of songs. A lot of songs I can’t use because I want the center of it not the beginning. Idk if I buy it if that’ll change and I don’t want to waste the money if it still doesn’t let me so yeah that’s the only thing I don’t like about it
Not Working
by ClutchHam on 2018/05/18 15:06
I’m using this app along with my iTunes library (like it says I can). I purchased a 12 month subscription hoping it would let me play my music, but that wasn’t working. I wasn’t even allowed full access to my library even though I payed money. I went to their support page and it was just as useless as the app. I couldn’t even email the group to find a solution without the page glitching out. App is a good idea, just wish it would work because I was really looking forward to using it a lot.
This app has been gutted
by getms420 on 2020/12/18 22:07
What happened to this app can’t even do anything because you have to pay for premium. You pay for premium guess what now you have limited songs to even use so those nice playlist you probably spent hours even days mixing are all now chopped up. So there’s no real way to even fixingThis app even if you’re trying hard enough to work around your limitations I’m disappointed this was the one app that made it easy to mix music now it is just another money hungry trash of a service
Great app...with a price
by Pieeater69 on 2020/12/14 20:17
Does everything I want out of a DJ app- music mixing and finding music. The almost too huge of a downside is of course the subscription service which I do want to pay for- albeit it’s 5 dollars a WEEK. Be wary. If you don’t pay the app starts to mysteriously act up and never work quite right however it’s still a great interface and easy way into DJ’ing
Great for group fitness
by nwoodruff4211 on 2019/11/18 16:07
I have been using this app to make mixes for classes for a while now. The app for the watch is kind of annoying so I deleted it off my watch to have better volume control. Really enjoy and highly recommend
Sooo close
by Ethan Philip Richard on 2019/06/16 02:17
I love this app. I love the concept and everything. But the bugs are getting a little to wild and I would love a 10 dollar charge for premium but not a 5 dollar a week charge. Not worth it for any app on Iphone. I’m absolutely in love with it it’s just now the bugs are getting to out of hand. It doesn’t play my music in order or my mixes and sometimes it refuses to even mix. Please fix the bugs pretty soon but if anybody is reading this give this app a try:)
Great, but buggy
by sklvsklvsklv on 2019/09/06 04:44
Let me start by saying I am a huge fan of this app. Its very unique and great in its functionality. However, as a piece of software it is horrendous at times. I will often try to make a mix and the app will be very unresponsive, it will take forever to load up a new song to the mix and more often than not the app will just crash. Good but could be far better for the user.
$20/mo for an app I already bought?
by Djpresstone on 2020/12/19 13:12
Bought this software early on, and it seems to work now the same way it did when I first bought it. No major new functionality with significant appeal. Enjoyed it so much I gladly paid for all the in-app purchases. Now I can’t use the app unless I pay an additional $5/wk? If I thought Pacemaker would shift its pricing model to such a greedy subscription rate, I would not have paid for the in-app purchases. Price point is way off-base... realistically I’d consider $5/year, or MAYBE $0.99/mo.
Many bugs
by Jeremyleew on 2020/02/26 13:08
I use pacemaker for work. It had smooth transitions and it’s fairly easy to use and learn. The problem is that there always seems to be bugs. Many times it cuts out on me when I need the music the most or it will freeze and keep repeating the song. Recently, it’s not working at all. I pay too much for this to have so many problems.
Crashing
by Shadx77 on 2018/08/04 08:34
Edit: Your last update last week fixed it! I forgot to uodate this review. Thanks :) The beat matching works well for house music but sometimes it crashes In autopilot mode. A feature request: I’d like to see color coding or faded tracks in the playlist that have already been played In the current mix.
Cool App!
by rovertime blog on 2020/05/03 18:55
I’m a big fan of this app! Love the interface. Rlyyyyyy user friendly too. Only minor prob is that I’m not sure how to slow down particular songs, to add for a slowed + reverb vibe. If someone could tell me how to do so, that’d be sweet. Otherwise, LOVE this app and would recommend for those who love mixing music!!!
Was great, now not so much
by PacemakerForThePeople on 2020/12/17 17:24
first things first, DO NOT UPDATE THIS APP As a fitness coach, this app was a gem making music. Our clients absolutely love the playlists we make as coaches. Used to be so easy to mix songs together. Now all of us coaches (nation wide) are having issues with the app in the sense of mixing songs and losing playlists. I’m talking losing HUNDREDS of songs and NUMEROUS playlists after YEARS of work. Hoping this message gets out to the creators to fix the changes 🙏
Love and hate the app !!!
by KnockOut-Ned on 2017/10/18 21:56
What the app allows me to do with my mixes is incredible. My blends just keep getting better as the app keeps improving. The hate is with the new update my app keeps freezing while I’m doing my mixes and the only way for me to get it out of it is by starting all over .. so that is really annoying.. please fix that bug. Overall could be a 5 Star app
Great app for quick playlist mixing
by scalemodlgiant on 2018/01/11 14:31
This app is finally everything I wanted it to be! A shame that the fine transition controls are behind a subscription pay wall, but I'm glad to finally have full control over my mixes.
Best Playlists!
by theotfsteph on 2020/07/31 23:31
I love using Pacemaker to create playlists. It mixed them together perfectly, and it’s incredibly easier to shorten songs that go on way too long. I’m only giving four stars, because the app glitches quite a bit, but I’m willing to put up with for the ease of creating playlists!
So close...
by willkill13 on 2019/03/04 21:22
I just downloaded the app but deleted it because of the fact that you cannot cut parts out of the song, I would’ve liked to keep just the solo of a certain song and then move on to another one. If they added a feature that allowed you to keep just the “best” parts of the song I would re-download and recommend... but until then I don’t have much use for the app.

Update ruined it
by PrestonxD on 2021/01/15 16:29
Forcing users to pay without the use of their Spotify catalogue and for less music made this app useless for me. I used to love it and use it every day for my work.
Fix this wierd thing
by kooldudemankid on 2021/01/14 09:39
Okay whenever I try to tap on a song to make a mix it sends me to a add I used to be able to use this for free why is it spamming me with adds for the + version and sorry for being poor but please I just wanna mix some songs.
Best wishes
by apayton89 on 2021/01/13 15:00
I have no doubt in my mind that pacemaker will come back and be the best app out there that even may rival Spotify and Apple Music one day. I wish you guys the best over the next year as you get your music deals sorted out. I just hope that it happens before it’s too late. 1 star rating for now thought because none and I do mean none of my music works except for maybe 20 out of 1100 songs 👎🏾
Buyer Beware
by balt821 on 2021/01/13 01:38
I understand the predicament the developers of this app are in, but everyone abound know that when you upgrade you will very likely have access to a mere fraction of the songs you had previously. I expected some loss but not this. My electronic mixes are done for.
Pay for everything
by raininaing on 2021/01/10 19:35
I thought the app was going to let you play music for free but the creators want money so they charge you for everything what a disappointment
New update is horrible
by cameronpro1 on 2021/01/10 02:40
Customers are speaking. Please find a different streaming service like maybe Tidal that is at a reasonable price range. I get bombarded by “please leave us a review” each time I open the app. Subscription or not, well here’s your review. Until the price (17.00) monthly is worked on, I will not be returning.
Too expensive
by lukeiamyourfather123456 on 2021/01/08 07:06
You cannot do a single thing without the $5 weekly subscription. And I am not going to pay $260 a month.
Price too high
by Rob 818 on 2021/01/08 06:15
Dollar votes. I used this app for a whole year and it made life easier when I didn’t want to record my whole sets and for quick ideas. As of January 2021 they are charging $16.99 for 1 month!! I used to pay $15.99 for 3 months which I loved. Unfortunately won’t be using this app until price goes down.
Let us use any song from our Spotify library
by jerr_bear4lyfe on 2021/01/06 19:47
The new update is great but some of the songs in my library from Spotify that I want to use won’t let me play. We should be able to use any song we have in there! Please let us do that. Other than that, the app’s great! Thanks!
The worst
by Alsqkc on 2021/01/05 22:53
You can’t even play your music from Spotify before it will play anything now it’s limited used it for New Year eve the worst I was better off queuing music on Spotify worst of all is the price not worth it what so ever
Locked
by rossthegardener on 2021/01/05 20:46
In Pacemaker 3.0, it locks you out of the app until you pay a fee of $5.00 a week
AMAZING
by jasonvaca on 2021/01/05 17:27
AMAZING
you guys ruined the app.
by ev dia on 2021/01/05 17:17
it was all good when i could just use the basic version of it, but now i can’t even do that and have to insert credit card info for which i don’t even have? don’t download this app.
I’m upset
by Noming on cheese on 2021/01/05 03:59
I really like this app when Spotify premium was on there, now I’m having to pay just to have music? You claim to have millions of tracks but what about underground artists like in the edm community? I can’t mix with those songs anymore and honestly it’s kind of wack.
Worthless without Spotify integration
by MightyBryan on 2021/01/05 00:18
This used to be the best AI DJ app on any mobile platform, hands down. I have paid for and used the previous version for months, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Now without Spotify, it is basically worthless. Maybe consider another music service, like Tidal, and this app can prevail again. But obtaining separate licenses from different artists will kill this app. Please consider Tidal.
Terrible new update
by Dashiidash on 2021/01/03 00:22
All of the best tracks are no longer available with pacemaker. I had to delete the app. Maybe someone will come out with one that works as well as the old pacemaker. This new version is trash. I’d rather use Spotify with 12 second fade than this mess. It takes hours just to figure out how to fill the gaps now.
Stealing your money
by Anonehhhboo on 2020/12/31 23:58
This app used to be the best. But now they’re forcing you to pay $5 a WEEK to just select your music from YOUR OWN LIBRARY! Upon app startup, they even stick you in a waiting game to exit the “pay” page on their app. You have to wait like a full minute for their X to pop up. Thought they could sneak on people and make them think they HAVE to pay. I’m severely disappointed in you guys. I ain’t paying for SHlT
DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY
by Steve Tha Follower on 2020/12/30 16:28
The app should be more upfront about the lack of music but instead they skirt around the truth until you’ve purchased and then it’s too late. They’re like a shady used car salesman. Pacemaker, shame on you for trying to deceive people. It’s extremely BAD FAITH. Horrible, deceptive advertising and no respect for their paying costumes. They take your money and give you the proverbial middle finger. Extremely disappointed and will be warning everyone I know not to sign up.
Old purchases gone! And now, a crazy subscription?!
by Dhruv Raman on 2020/12/30 05:24
Pacemaker, I usually never write reviews for apps, and especially not bad ones for ones that I have used so many times in the past. But you pushed it a bit too far. Seeing you guys integrate Apple Music was a gift to my eyes; I’d escape from subscribing to both Apple and Spotify and have all my music in one place. But, when you thing something is too good to be true, it usually is. First, all my effects purchases from before- gone. Disappeared. Pacemakers’ team said “thank you very much!” and slapped my face with a crazy subscription cost. Man, even Netflix costs less than this! 16.99 per month is nowhere even close to reasonable, so you’ve left me with no choice: I’m not using this app again. To readers, save your money. Pacemaker had a great thing going and ruined it with a cheap paywall, which goes to show that their vision is corrupted. They don’t want your love of music, they just want your wallet. Pacemaker, I really hope you’re better than this.
You have to pay
by Cheddar84 on 2020/12/28 20:53
I used to love this app until you had to pay literally 5 dollars a week just to make music. They are definitely better apps that are free.
They revoked all the good music
by GGSGAFAFATA on 2020/12/26 04:02
All the good songs are “not licensed” and I can’t listen to or mix them, terrible app. I wish there was a 0 star option
3.0 Ruined Pacemaker
by 🐵Calen on 2020/12/25 10:25
Out with the old in with the new, right ? Well no not quite, the update has rendered this app useless. All my old mixes are gone, and it’s quite sad really. I used this for on the spot live sets, now I’ll just toss it out. And something els the subscription is 16 dollars a month now. -3 review
Don’t even bother download
by LacrooseGuy35 on 2020/12/25 07:35
Basically you can’t do anything with having to pay, can’t make a set, can’t listen to someone’s set…absolutely nothing.
Spotify
by $Mike$$$ on 2020/12/24 17:03
Please make up with Spotify
Super Evil Greed Move
by jazzresin on 2020/12/24 05:35
Pitiful. Tricked into a subscription service without warning and no longer able to access the previous working version. Poor show. Very poor ethics and morals. If i cant have the previous version then i deserve money back then. You SHOULD have been much more concise. You all are thuggish cash grab thiefs.
It was great until the new update (3.0)
by TonyTheTiger92 on 2020/12/24 02:37
I bought the subscription after the trial because the app was working great and I loved that I was able to use every single song I had on my Spotify account. Then came the 3.0 version, which sounded great, maybe I read and understood wrong what was mentioned about the 3.0 update, and now over 50% of my Spotify music I “sync” is not available. It makes it hard and almost boring to mix now unless you only mix mainstream music. I say bring back the Spotify accounts to full usage again, add SoundCloud too and you’d be the best 3rd party Dj app. Especially for us Spotify users. For now, I am ending my subscription until most or all of my Spotify songs are available to use again. Sorry Pacemaker, but you shouldn’t have changed, and could’ve done better with the 3.0. Possibly use the “headphones” button to actually listen to the song without interrupting what is currently playing to help mix smoother. I may come back once I see it be great again.
It used to work
by bigroller69 on 2020/12/23 17:53
I downloaded this app in October 2020 and it worked fine with the free version, I was able to upload tracks and mix them together but once I updated to the new 3.0 version all my mixes and favorite music was gone from the app. If you want to mix whatever music you like from Spotify I WOULD NOT USE THIS APP (in the state it’s in right now)
Do not Get Packmaker!
by DevinTheMusicFan2000 on 2020/12/23 03:04
I been a Pacemaker User as long as I can remember! Everything was great till now! So recently they updated their app, removing Spotify. Instead they license the tracks from Sony and Warner. And everytime I add tracks to my mix it says it’s not licensed! What the heck? This is a scam! Do not get! You won’t have a great experience! And also, $5 a week for the subscription so you can use the app? That’s greedy! Do not waste your money on this scammy app! I would not recommend using this. I repeat, DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!
Ha! What a joke for an appp
by greyson1993 on 2020/12/22 21:19
If I could leave 0 stars I would. You thought blocking me on Instagram would keep me from getting the word out but NOPE. For an app the user pays for this thing constantly glitches and freezes. The new update literally wrecked all of your playlist and removed THOUSANDS of songs from the set list to choose from. “Stick with us” they said after 🥴 don’t waste your time or money you will only have about 10% of your music in your library to use. Maybe 1% of that will actually mix and then it will glitch anyway. I’m choosing not to curse so this doesn’t get taken off but rest assure I would if I could.
Wow
by YungBakedPasta on 2020/12/22 17:05
Went from Spotify music to limited music to absolutely no music at all! I made an entire playlist for work based off what was available just to have a message pop up saying you’d didn’t have the license for any of the music that I used from THIS APP. So frustrating!
Fun for mixing my Spotify music
by DripMonsterLLC on 2020/12/22 13:54
This app WAS super fun to play DJ. I paid for the previous $10/yr subscription, once I updated the app they are now asking for $5weekly, Ha... This is in NO WAY an app worth $260/yr... Sorry, The 2 stars is because of this ridiculous PRICE HIKE. The NEW way to get Robbed, $250 increase🤣
Hate the update
by Qtsmom on 2020/12/22 10:27
Terrible that all of my playlists no longer contain the same songs because of the change with Spotify. When asked to update it tells you you can’t go back to the previous version but NEVER mentioned that you may lose most of your songs & your playlists skip around. Terrible. Will be deleting and canceling my subscription.
Long Time User
by dafitime on 2020/12/21 19:20
Been using this app for quite a while with the bugs slowly and finally getting resolved. Because of Spotify support contracts rippling the entire DJ industry, it’s pretty upsetting that you didn’t utilize Tidal instead, like all other DJ apps. It was nice knowing y’all.
App just got ruined.
by Oink391 on 2020/12/21 16:30
It’s no longer free. The Spotify partnership has ended and now you’re forced to use their subscription model to use the app at all. I’m disappointed, but the app definitely isn’t worth the money, so on to something else. I just wish I could at least log in and access my old stuff but they won’t even let me look at my account now.
One of the best apps ever. Now gone bye bye with 2020.
by rockyfeller1 on 2020/12/21 11:54
This was one of the best DJ apps ever. It makes seamless smooth mixes and allows you to skip parts of the song seamlessly and better than any other app. Functionality is way too basic. No need to overcomplicate things but with a few tweaks it could be perfect. I’d GLADLY pay around $5 month for this. But subscription prices are way way too high. And lastly: SPOTIFY is no longer supported?? Forget the free version now. It was fun while it lasted. I’ve now deleted this app. Sad because the underlying seamless operation of this app is the best out there.
The new update is horrible
by Retrosister219 on 2020/12/21 11:29
I am not a fan of the new update. I knew there may be some gaps in my playlists but not half the playlist missing. Playlists I took hours to make which are now gone. Seriously considering switching to another app. And update its now going to cost $16 per month instead of $35 for the whole year when I’m hearing from other whose renewal was a few weeks ago they got it for $35. Thanks a lot pacemaker
Not worth the money anymore
by rogerdoger1235 on 2020/12/21 10:46
This app has been slowly going downhill. With the new update its not really even worth having anymore. On top if it working less it is costing way more for a fraction of its abililty. Regardless if its spotify who pulled their use away. Not worth the expensive prices
What a MESS
by TONY VALLE on 2020/12/21 09:38
Used to be the best APP in the whole world NOW I’ll say it’s the worst. Since last update this December 2020. Sorry, I’m just being very honest.
It used to be great
by c-kane on 2020/12/21 06:32
Whatever happened for Pacemaker to lose the right to play most of my Spotify music (which in the newest version I can’t do) goes straight to the opposite scenario on which I’m willing to pay 5 bucks a week to use it.
Soul crushing for OTF
by corbincn on 2020/12/21 02:33
There has to be something done so all do our mixes we rely on and have our countless hours into making don’t disappear. Also we already ou for Spotify I refuse to pay for pacemaker when the new update won’t allow me to keep my old mixes as is. Work harder to make things work with Spotify. You have cherished every soul of every OTF coach.
3.0 is no good
by VPG7478 on 2020/12/20 22:53
Ever since the update I have not been able to play or create anymore new mixtapes. Uninstalled. 👎
New update
by jude.-. on 2020/12/20 22:43
It’s now hard to navigate and many songs I previously used cannot be used, ruined the app for me.
Unnecessary update and expensive price tag
by bmoo fitness on 2020/12/20 16:45
I’ve had the app for a couple of years and loved how it helps me mix playlists. It works seamlessly with Spotify. The latest update undoes everything I’ve enjoyed with the app. It’s eliminated half my music options so finding and blending music is more difficult. Then it wants to charge $15/mo for access. Not sure what the money grab is for, but the app isn’t worth it. I’m sorry, the app with trash now.
Very disappointed
by jckeishcndkshxnviehsbkde on 2020/12/20 03:31
I have used this app for 2 years now without having to pay a dime. And I just recently made a new mixtape, but now it’s requiring me to pay. Fair enough, so I went for it. BUT now they aren’t allowing you to get whatever song you want. They limit your song choices.
Changes on pacemaker
by Kevsjac277 on 2020/12/20 02:02
I think Pacemaker should stay with Spotify premium... there are a lot of complaints about this problem. It was the best mix music until they decided to be independent and I think is good but now there are a lot mix that you can’t play because of the update It should be as the beginning, but anyways I hope they solve that part of the music.
New update is not good
by BlasianFTW on 2020/12/19 20:46
I can’t even use the majority of my songs because there not licensed. I never had this problem beforehand.
Now A Paywall
by Blahberama on 2020/12/19 17:22
Was the greatest app to use until the subscription became a costly $5 per week. No thank you. Bad developers making the harsh transition to a paid only app.
Expensive
by amejro on 2020/12/19 16:48
You need to pay so much just to use the app. You literally can’t do anything on it for free without the Pacemaker+ purchase screen popping up
Useless now
by AAJI12 on 2020/12/19 16:27
I have a huge library of music on my phone that is not on Apple Music or Spotify, after the 3.0 update none of it plays any more. Bad update, useless app.
Garbage 3.0
by Mc fresh85 on 2020/12/19 13:17
This update is garbage to me now delete. Spotify mixes tracks better than this app it sat
$20/mo for an app I already bought?
by Djpresstone on 2020/12/19 13:12
Bought this software early on, and it seems to work now the same way it did when I first bought it. No major new functionality with significant appeal. Enjoyed it so much I gladly paid for all the in-app purchases. Now I can’t use the app unless I pay an additional $5/wk? If I thought Pacemaker would shift its pricing model to such a greedy subscription rate, I would not have paid for the in-app purchases. Price point is way off-base... realistically I’d consider $5/year, or MAYBE $0.99/mo.
They just ripped us loyal mixers off
by Tag Carlson on 2020/12/19 04:20
We use to be able to pay for Spotify premium and be able to mix songs, but now they weren’t making enough money so they charge us for songs we mix! I can’t even play my mixes anymore because “pacemaker 3.0 includes over 30 million tracks” so you have to pay $5.00 a month for absolutely for the songs! You have a great system, I’ll give you that! But count me out if I have to pay for a past time! #rewindwhileyoustillcan #wewanttheoldpacemaker
The worst app ever I can’t believe y’all took away our favorite songs
by dcudjoe00 on 2020/12/19 04:17
I can’t believe y’all took away our favorite songs
Way too expensive
by Limonic316 on 2020/12/19 02:21
App is way too expensive for what it does. Monthly subscription is not worth it.
SCAM!! Having to pay for 3.0 wasn’t disclosed when the option to switch was given!
by Jav_eee on 2020/12/19 01:56
I was tricked into thinking 3.0 was free. There was no effort made to disclose a fee when the decision was to be made. SCAM!!!
This app has been gutted
by getms420 on 2020/12/18 22:07
What happened to this app can’t even do anything because you have to pay for premium. You pay for premium guess what now you have limited songs to even use so those nice playlist you probably spent hours even days mixing are all now chopped up. So there’s no real way to even fixingThis app even if you’re trying hard enough to work around your limitations I’m disappointed this was the one app that made it easy to mix music now it is just another money hungry trash of a service
$5... a WEEK
by Gruhlke on 2020/12/18 20:58
Got Spotify premium to mix some crazy playlists. Spotify removed, playlists removed, before I can hear a song I must pay $5. Good bye Pacemaker, but also goodbye Spotify premium.
DO NOT UPDATE TO VERSION IF YOU WANT TO KEEP YOUR PLAYLISTS
by a_orbit on 2020/12/18 20:56
I loved using this app to make smooth playlists. I wish I had a warning beforehand that would’ve told me that NEARLY ALL of the ones I put together on there would be gone. They’re all now pretty much completely obsolete since they took away Spotify access. Not to say I agree with Spotify as a company, but this was a move played too soon IMO. Should’ve waited until there were more songs available on your collective catalog before detaching from the amount of music held by what’s arguably the biggest streaming service right now. Disappointed that I can’t use the app anymore like I have for years. :(
Confusing upgrade
by rad115 on 2020/12/18 20:28
I was worried when I updated that I couldn’t play my own music collection. It took a few restarts to get the cancel button to show up on the promo screen. After I had to enable Apple Music and quit the app before my local library would show up. Hope this helps other users.
Mad Coach
by k8m1234 on 2020/12/18 20:26
This app is a great idea with awful execution. As a Group Fitness coach it is crucial for me to have music to keep the energy alive in the room. I have spent countless hours making playlists that my clients love. To create an update for an app that would ultimately take away thousands of songs and ruin playlists that I have spent many hours on as well as many other coaches is just stupid. This app is hard to figure out how to use - once you figure it out on your own it is fine but ultimately it is not worth the cost. It randomly will log you out of Spotify and will often times crash during my classes. Please do better if you are going to charge $5 a week.
Change for the worse
by zer09ine on 2020/12/18 20:03
Took away songs, no access without pay, can’t even use my own local files without Pacemaker+. Ruined a great thing- now literally unusable. Shame!
Don’t do it
by brittanyloooooo on 2020/12/18 19:19
latest update is trash, making this app unusable. Update: might as well take this as a sign to develop my own app and leave it free. What ya think?
Keep Spotify linked
by jdjc0911 on 2020/12/18 18:57
Pacemaker is great— but only if a premium spiritual is linked. Without it, huge gaps between songs, which is NOT what we want. So much work into making playlists and now that pacemaker and Spotify are breaking up, I don’t see me using Pacemaker much longer. Unless they stick with Spotify.
They want me to pay to have fun
by flielsfhfdx on 2020/12/18 12:56
I don’t wanna pay I was fine listening and mixing for free but now they have to ruin it for me!!!
Works well but
by Livedangeruss on 2020/12/18 12:20
Such an amazing app but I wish it hadn’t “removed the need for Spotify.” If there was an option or an extra fee to NOT do that I’d be all for it. As a fitness coach for a few years I’m in the boat of losing dozens of hours of editing and some of my best songs on my best playlists and it’s a pretty big bummer. Wish I hadn’t paid to upgrade the Plus version for losing 80% of the music library and hours and hours of editing.
the app was great to have, until...
by kaylebarm on 2020/12/18 05:31
this app was great to have, until they made most of the music unavailable. i would make playlists for work and for home and road trips that would last about 4 hours long. now half of the songs are now unavailable to play due to Pacemaker 3.0
December 2020 Dark Vision
by DJ KINGDOM DECIPLE on 2020/12/18 02:54
Just now I wanted to rock on heart beats pacemaker app I’m just causal DJ myself Spotify which is my favorite I use on pace maker to mix songs; the older pacemaker was better way to spin but now it offer me to update to newer versions and it’s is bad update I saw, can’t see half of my play list from Spotify here on pacemaker it says “pacemaker can’t find your songs so it’s my decision now to out goes pacemaker I don’t care as much as you don’t care I’m ending my subscription bye bye, over to Serato DJ pro with my Numark controller
Beyond disappointed
by Heavensbeee on 2020/12/18 01:54
From sneakily being charged $5 per week by DEFAULT when I clearly would have paid $30 for a year, and version 3 which decimates all existing playlists and the hours that went into them, I am beyond disappointed in the way this team runs this app. Maybe have your act together before pulling the rug out on literally every one of your loyal paying users.
New 3.0 version is completely unsatisfactory
by 5incl4ir on 2020/12/18 01:35
I have been using this app and paying for it for the last several years and absolutely loved it. But since this new 3.0 update,I can only access a quarter of the songs from my old mixes. A 60 min playlist is now 15 min long at best. Not only can I not use my mixes anymore but everyone else’s mixes only have about a 1/4 of the songs in them as well. The selection that is available on there now is unsatisfactory to say the least. If pacemaker cannot get access to all of these songs back, I will have to cancel my subscription and use another app such as Rock My Run or Fit Radio instead. This app created a passion for me in making my own playlists for my classes. I feel like a part of me is lost now without it. Do not get this app unless they can get the rights back to all of the music they previously had! Make this right Pacemaker
Only works half the time
by Cotheadh on 2020/12/18 01:12
This app crashes randomly. Definitely has some kinks to workout. The latest update is apparently terrible
Don’t update!
by Fillthetub on 2020/12/18 01:02
So sad to see this update. After separating from Spotify all my mixtapes I use on a regular basis are unplayable with huge gaps. This was my sole use for music during workouts I coach because it was the best! Now, unfortunately, it’s not. Please revert!
HORRIBLE AFTER UPDATE
by Fjgcrfsgh on 2020/12/18 00:40
This was the best app for fitness coaches to mix and share music with each other. Studio members loved these mixes and it was great to be able to use other fitness coaches’ mixes. Now after the update there are thousands of songs missing and playlists that are no longer available.
Recent update Terrible!!!
by 44LOCO on 2020/12/18 00:28
They recently updated the app claiming to eliminate the need for the Spotify premium, but once you update you can’t play anything anymore.
WORST DAY EVER..
by bbriannakayy on 2020/12/18 00:07
I cannot believe the time I spent on mixing playlists, only for all of it to be taken from me in a blink of an eye. I want my money back. I can’t believe the break up between Spotify and pacemaker. So many of my co workers use this app that we rely on.. now it’s completely gone and erased. Do not get this app. Absolutely terrible communication and way of doing business.
Used to love...
by nattywilk on 2020/12/17 23:54
This app was BOMB to make playlists for coaching fitness classes. With the new update, and apparent breakup with Spotify, so much has been lost. And now I’m lost and back to square one with where I go for amazing playlists and music. *excuse me while I go cry *
Update
by ajaidbiwjshaondbkakbsghsgajjsn on 2020/12/17 23:44
Please reverse the new update 😭
What’s is the point of this update?
by anonymouse123276 on 2020/12/17 23:33
What was the point of this update if i still cannot use the music for free. I think the app should be free or allow me to at-least hear someone else's tracks for free.
Very expensive - half of playlist missing with new update
by mariaewebber on 2020/12/17 21:17
Get rid of the new update!! Please!!
LET US KEEP OUR MUSIC PLEASE
by otfcoachk on 2020/12/17 20:17
As a fitness coach, pacemaker is an amazing app to let us personalize our playlists without having to play with our phone to change songs. I’ve been using this app religiously for years and have about 200 mixtapes I recycle and continue to make new ones. But PLEASE, LET US KEEP OUR MUSIC!! Too many changes in music licensing and we are losing all of our past playlists with updates. Please, keep it the same and let us keep the playlists already made and don’t take our songs away!!
The app has been ruined. Terrible.
by Kendramaa on 2020/12/17 18:16
Since pacemaker has ended its relationship with Spotify, they have done an AWFUL job of updating a full music library, leaving those of us who have spent hundreds of hours curating amazing playlists that our members loved with NOTHING. Every playlist made on this app prior to today has been destroyed because pacemaker does not have enough music in their library, so we have been left with disjointed playlists. Hundreds of hours of work down the tubes. I could not be more upset or disappointed. Orangetheory coaches nationwide are literally devastated and so disappointed, myself included. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY ON THIS APP unless they actually come up with a genuine solution to this problem. And screw Spotify too while we’re at it, I’m ending that subscription as well.
90% of all tracks are not licensed...
by AL3X_360 on 2020/12/17 17:56
... therefore what the f* is the point of downloading this ridiculous app if you can’t mix any of your playlists. Syncing through spotify yet none of my playlists can mix - and I’m talking mainstream music and popular songs. Garbage.
SO Frustrated!!!
by OrangeTheory Coach on 2020/12/17 17:32
Absolutely Love this app & have created multiple playlists over the past year for my work as a coach within the fitness industry. However NOW the “detach from Spotify” has caused ALL of these playlists to be affected. As a Coach whose members absolutely love the playlists for their workouts & PaceMaker has always been my go to ... this is so frustrating! Surely Pacemaker (especially with the subscription we pay) can come to a deal with Spotify to keep them whole - but to lose all these playlists and the impact to SO many coaches causes one to seriously question the management & value of this app.
Was great, now not so much
by PacemakerForThePeople on 2020/12/17 17:24
first things first, DO NOT UPDATE THIS APP As a fitness coach, this app was a gem making music. Our clients absolutely love the playlists we make as coaches. Used to be so easy to mix songs together. Now all of us coaches (nation wide) are having issues with the app in the sense of mixing songs and losing playlists. I’m talking losing HUNDREDS of songs and NUMEROUS playlists after YEARS of work. Hoping this message gets out to the creators to fix the changes 🙏

New update is AWFUL
by amandaP1234556789 on 2020/12/17 16:49
I will be canceling my subscription if this new update stays. Hours of time wasted since half of my songs are now gone.
new update
by kaydencekoerberdawg on 2020/12/17 16:41
With the new update, I cant play anything. I don’t have Pacemaker+, and there’s no way I’m going to get it because it’s ridiculously overpriced.
Fix big please!
by Dubstepmkzer on 2020/12/17 13:31
Terrible update!!!! In their older version, you were able to blend so much easier. And it recognizes each song. If y’all don’t fix the blending, and the way that it doesn’t recognize the next song, I’m done with the app
This is useless without Spotify

Don’t Update to 3.0
by SoMichael on 2020/12/17 07:10
I used to love this app. Would use it’s automix feature when I want a simple mixtape for a night walk or drive. I was able to do that for free even if I couldn’t adjust the weird transitions or levels. Something I was fine with. The auto mixing feature on this app is amazing and the best I have seen for a quick to go mix. But unfortunately, you have to pay $8 a WEEK to use this app now. I get every app developer needs money and there are music licensing issues that Pacemaker has been dealing with, but I have no idea why they won’t let free users exist on the app anymore. I have used this app for about a year now and loved it. I wished I could just do a one time buy to keep using it. I would easily pay $15 dollars or so for it, but the subscription model as finally turned me away and made it unusable for free users. I can’t justify spending over 20 bucks a month for a mixing app, and I have a feeling most people won’t either.
New Update Ruins App
by riordan10 on 2020/12/17 06:34
The 3.0 update makes it so any old mixes you’ve done that had a potentially unlicensed track through Spotify now no longer play. That is countless hours of time, hard work, and dedication gone. I’d this isn’t fixed I will be leaving the app for good, because issues like this along with bugs have plagued this app and the many months I’ve used it. DO NOT GIVE THEN YOUR MONEY.
DO NOT UPDATE!!!
by Nitin Ramchandani on 2020/12/16 16:29
After the new update i.e. 3.0 the developers are asking subscription amount even for mixing local tracks stored on iPhone Music Library. I even lost my effects bundle purchase made last year. My humble request to kindly revert the changes made. Deleted the app for now.
Can not open with update
by keith_otf_76 on 2020/12/16 13:32
Can’t even open the app with the new update. Good thing I stopped paying for this last month.
Great app...with a price
by Pieeater69 on 2020/12/14 20:17
Does everything I want out of a DJ app- music mixing and finding music. The almost too huge of a downside is of course the subscription service which I do want to pay for- albeit it’s 5 dollars a WEEK. Be wary. If you don’t pay the app starts to mysteriously act up and never work quite right however it’s still a great interface and easy way into DJ’ing
$4.99/week..??? Seriously?!
by Ni-Ck-Na on 2020/12/14 19:55
Crazy expensive. Not worth it.
Spotify and UI worse
by krisswanson2 on 2020/12/13 09:07
Lastest update forces a Spotify log in making it hard to find your own tracks quickly. Also UI update makes it impossible to see the difference between two tracks when blending. Please revert.
Why
by izzyglizzy on 2020/12/10 13:08
Why now I have to login to my Spotify account
Pretty amazing app (for me)
by KoaGrenz on 2020/05/17 06:48
I saw this app a long time ago while scrolling through story’s on Instagram, and I thought nothing of it. This time I saw it again, and I thought “hmm, maybe I should just give it a try”. Well dam is it amazing! It may be a little hard to understand how things work at first, But it’s easy to figure out. So nothing to bad. I already made a 3 1/2 hour mix of songs I love! This is a game changer for me and my friends who want a homemade radio station type vibe. And I mean can we talk about the transitions! 👌🏽😩 honestly for me they’re amazing! What can I say, 5 stars my friend.
Almost love at first sight
by jingai on 2019/03/26 02:11
Where to start? Was getting into it... tried to add a new effect. All it suggests is some crazy $5 A WEEK subscription. Sorry, this is NOT a $260 a year app by any means. Where are the individual effect purchases listed on the App Store? That’s super reasonable and a pretty awesome business model. Then I’m getting used to it and getting into it and jamming, then suddenly it jumps to the very beginning of my mix and I’m like what the heck is going on?! Where’s the play head? Sorry. This app is so desperately needed... perfect working and functional contrast to the other lead dj app here. Fix the biz model and back button UX mess, and you could win. Do NOT make this a forced subscription for FX. Check reviews of that other app, and you’ll see they get nothing but grief from let down customers. Good luck. Hope you make the right choices. I was seriously ready to give you $10 right off the bat for the FX pack, but can’t even figure out how to do that the UX is so bad. Way to ruin our first date. Don’t want to, but maybe have to move on.
Most expensive app I pay for, is it worth it?
by evanovich555 on 2019/04/17 19:49
I pay more than any other app for this, $15 every 3 months....and EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. I load up the app I am confronted with “Do you like Pacemaker? Leave us a review! No? Tell us why!” and have to perform thumb gymnastics to get to the TINY X at the very top right of my 8+ screen. Their blatant disregard of the “In-App Ratings & Reviews” setting in the appstore (and Apple’s lack of enforcement) are very disenchanting for my most expensive app. I second other reviews about the dismay of the fx being subscription based. I understand the “it costs money to make all the wheels go around and provide our users with a killer app and constant upgrades” mentality but that doesn’t jive with the amount of money the developer makes from sales of the vast and unique data harvested from us users. Not to mention they most likely already have oodles of venture capital... YES the ui/ux is way slick. However, navigating around users, globals, recommends is a cumbersome nightmare. The inability to adjust the BPMs from track to track is a joke and almost defeats the entire purpose. WHY ARE THE IPAD APP AND THE IPHONE APP SO RADICALLY DIFFERENT!? The features avail on ipad are sorely needed on the iphone version and vice versa. Again, for the amount of money I pay, I would expect more. All these rants aside, I still use the app and the automix feature does a freakishly good job most of the time.
A Cluster of Bad UI with confusing and pointless features.
by ComedyDZN on 2019/12/20 00:31
I feel like the developers wanted to make a sleek and fluid app UI, which I totally applaud. It’s almost 2020 and ugly apps just aren’t it. That being said, there is an extent to which trying to oversimplify stuff that already works just doesn’t help. Navigating the app is an absolute NIGHTMARE. Confusing main menus literally make it so hard to find the simplest stuff. I was in the middle of my 300 minute playlist of the Godspeed You! Black Emperor playlist and decided to go looking at other playlists; but when I was scrolling through the laggy and annoyingly heavy-feeling public playlists, it would select a random playlist because it cares more about being a good looking, fundamentally broken, and annoyingly dumbed down app. You guys feel like it is a good idea to restrict so much view space and go for this abomination of an app style. Seriously reconsider.
New 3.0 version is completely unsatisfactory
by 5incl4ir on 2020/12/18 01:35

Do not get this app unless they can get the rights back to all of the music they previously had! Make this right Pacemaker
Great Idea, Poor Execution
by Animaldrummer04 on 2017/10/02 21:01
On a surface level, this is a great app. I appreciate the BPM analyzer recommending potential next tracks when building a playlist, and the editing ability (pro subscription) is good. However, for the life of me I cannot understand why - if you were only going to allow playlist creation and editing on one platform - you would choose iPhone over iPad. Maybe the developers are under the impression that “less is more” when it comes to screen real estate, but I’m here to tell you that that is not the case. At all. Very frustrating having to edit on such a small screen - and I have a 6s+! For this reason, I am searching for another (more user friendly) way to edit my playlists. My sausage fingers have had enough with this app.
Good app
by jonatheibart on 2019/03/15 17:53
Though I wish it worked with Apple Music (which I know is beyond the developers’ control and is the same for all these types of apps) this app is definitely the best of its kind. That being said there are various glitches, like sometimes it plays the songs as if they have been mixed but doesn’t show that they have been and doesn’t allow you to move the tracks and edit them; restarting the app usually fixes this but not always. Also I wish there was an easier way to choose the order of the tracks rather than scrolling endlessly, and I wish that you could import a whole playlist in the order that the playlist is in rather than mixing a few songs from it.
You need some serious updates
by Imbad3423 on 2019/12/31 13:36
I’m a set it and forget it type of guy. With that being said I purchased this app so I could make kill playlists with the feel of a DJ controlling everything. Using this app started of as a good thing but as of late as I’ve been using this app the playlists have been crashing halfway at random spots and cutting short of the playlist times. Since use this app for my group fitness classes these crashes in the app makes for uncomfortable silences at points in the class in which the energy from the music is needed most. I’ve tried emailing support but they don’t seem to really care. If this continues to be the case and updates aren’t made to solve this problem then I will have no issue with cancelling my subscription.
This used to be a good application.
by micah 44 on 2017/11/16 19:01
As a completely blind person who is a DJ, are used to love this app. Granted, manually mixing on other apps is doable on the iPhone, but without any physical controller in my hand, it was more difficult. This app was even smart enough to change the EQ of the tracks depending on what part was playing. It was even smart enough to cut the tracks off at the exact times, just like a normal DJ would. However, The update that brought this social features to this app has completely ruined the accessibility, therefore making the app completely useless to people like me. And that was over two years ago, and it has not been fixed. Please make this app accessible again as soon as possible. I actually depended on your app whenever I was too tired to mix myself.
Great for exercising!!!
by W477Y on 2017/08/05 20:18
I use this app at the gym and while running. I can load any of my iTunes playlists of individual tracks and it's like a DJ is mixing my playlist for me. Granted the transitions from track to track aren't always that great, but other times the transitions are amazing! No more downtime while tracks are ending and starting. The intensity of my runs and work outs has drastically increased because of this app. Some options I'd like to see and even be willing to pay for are... 1.the ability to rate a transition so the app can learn when it's working well and when it's not. 2.When I'm in the lock out screen and I hit the next track button it jumps the current song ahead to where the app was planning on mixing the next track instead of forcing the mix at that point like it will do when inside the app. Again, love this app even though I don't use it for its intended purpose.
Perfect for group fitness
by Emilia R. S. on 2018/12/27 02:39
Really cool app! Highly recommend if you’re a trainer who gets to pick their music for fitness classes. Love being able to create my own mixes without an awkward pause and without having to play the entire song. I’ve had multiple problems with my account login information, my app quitting suddenly, or my subscription (even though I paid for a year already). However, I still rate 5 stars because of the amazing customer service/support team.
There’s no point in buying this
by jayden mogan on 2020/12/06 19:27
When I was getting it it was free so ya know I thought it was gonna be free I could make some pretty good music and mashups but when I loaded in it was just a stupid scam that I had to pay 7.99$ for per month for no reason it’s nothing so idk why I have to pay for it at least just make it free to use and have it free where we could use it there are just some features that require payment instead of making the whole app 7.99$ for nothing
Psyerxes
by Sinai.Daqiqi on 2018/04/18 12:41
Using this app isn’t fun anymore just because of the new technology you’re using. Your team says that the new analyzer technology can’t gather the songs information in the other hand i can’t play with spoty music cause if the net is on push notifications distribs the volume while I’m palying in party. Please make the analyzer work with local musics. It’s getting on my nerves and i have to use other apps that do the same. Please make it happen.
Buggy
by fireant123456789 on 2020/11/12 21:56
Hi, ive been playing with this app for a while now and I loce it. But if I'm going to pay this much for it, I would really appreciate if you guys could squash at least most of the bugs. On my iPhone 12, I have experienced spontaneous crashes, the scrubber completely ignoring me when I touch it with my finger, and most of all, when I add a new song, very often there is not transition that shows up on the timeline and pressing that little lightning button literally does nothing (even when I jam it repeatedly). The fix for all of these issues is always the same, restart the all. But it's frustrating how often I need to do this
New and Frustrated with No Help fr Pacemaker

I’m new to Apple products and Pacemaker. I have painfully and unsuccessfully searched for tutorials and information on how to use my iPod and iPad for pacemaker. I can’t change the bpm on my iPod with pacemaker, but I can sync the bpm on my iPad. I can save a plalylist on my iPod, but I can’t save a playlist or mix on my iPad. I can’t use my iTunes on either because my tracks are now with Apple Music. I purchased the year subscription for an app that is not integrated and does not have the same functionality on the iPod and the iPad! Im frustrated and disappointed that I wasted so much money and time in this app, the iPod and the iPad. We have sent emails to Pacemaker and have not received any response.
My favorite instrument besides guitar
by fishypapas on 2020/04/16 07:41
I’ve been using this app for years to transcribe music. Easy to loop specific parts then slow them down. And it’s great for making loops to practice playing over. I love the flat graphic style of this app and glad the team has resisted the temptation to bloat it with junk. Some nice motion design details all over, from the screen transitions to the little icons that pulse when they’re on. Inspiring stuff.
Wow, This is amazing!
by Lbs anderson on 2018/12/31 01:39
I’ve been using this app to create special mixes for different events such as New Year’s Eve and it killed it! Yes, the transitions may be a little bad sometimes, but an app this great has to have at least one flaw. Other apps you have to pay to use or are just to complicated. But not this one! I’ve been looking for an app like this for awhile, so glad I found this!!!!!!!!
Ha! What a joke for an appp
by greyson1993 on 2020/12/22 21:19
If I could leave 0 stars I would. You thought blocking me on Instagram would keep me from getting the word out but NOPE. For an app the user pays for this thing constantly glitches and freezes. The new update literally wrecked all of your playlist and removed THOUSANDS of songs from the set list to choose from. “Stick with us” they said after 🥴 don’t waste your time or money you will only have about 10% of your music in your library to use. Maybe 1% of that will actually mix and then it will glitch anyway. I’m choosing not to curse so this doesn’t get taken off but rest assure I would if I could.
Top in Its Class
by Kcbnyc on 2019/09/25 14:24
Pacemaker is a very cool app. Better than Pyro (IMHO). Will it replace Traktor or DJ Pro? No. However, if you want to throw together a nice mix tape for the workout, party, or road trip then this is a fun And easy app to use. The graphics are great. I love the community of mixers! I can always find excellent mix tapes. If this could detect bars and phrases of tracks, it would be out of this world. $4.95/week is a little steep. Especially since traktor costs around $150. The ability to export the track list would be awesome!
LET US KEEP OUR MUSIC PLEASE
by otfcoachk on 2020/12/17 20:17
As a fitness coach, pacemaker is an amazing app to let us personalize our playlists without having to play with our phone to change songs. I’ve been using this app religiously for years and have about 200 mixtapes I recycle and continue to make new ones. But PLEASE, LET US KEEP OUR MUSIC!! Too many changes in music licensing and we are losing all of our past playlists with updates. Please, keep it the same and let us keep the playlists already made and don’t take our songs away!!
Don’t Update to 3.0
by SoMichael on 2020/12/17 07:10
I used to love this app. Would use it’s automix feature when I want a simple mixtape for a night walk or drive. I was able to do that for free even if I couldn’t adjust the weird transitions or levels. Something I was fine with. The auto mixing feature on this app is amazing and the best I have seen for a quick to go mix. But unfortunately, you have to pay $8 a WEEK to use this app now. I get every app developer needs money and there are music licensing issues that Pacemaker has been dealing with, but I have no idea why they won’t let free users exist on the app anymore. I have used this app for about a year now and loved it. I wished I could just do a one time buy to keep using it. I would easily pay $15 dollars or so for it, but the subscription model as finally turned me away and made it unusable for free users. I can’t justify spending over 20 bucks a month for a mixing app, and I have a feeling most people won’t either.
Fix ur app❤️
by drebyron on 2020/11/11 08:27
This app is the best at what it does, I’ve tried a lot of these apps. The matching AI is good. The auto mixing isn’t great, but why get a mixing app if you’re not going to do it yourself you know. But my main concern is that at random times this app gets unbearably glitchy. I’ll play around with two songs and when I listen back to the stitch, my actions don’t register and I have to refresh the app to try again. Again, I love this app but it’s been out too long for it to be acting up like it does. Please fix, thanks.
Amazing and so much fun!
by JohnnyDubstarWhite on 2018/02/20 13:11
This app is so awesome. It seas designed very well and makes it incredibly easy to put seamless mixes together. And if you are more experienced you can really blend some tracks together into something special. I’ve mixed a couple playlists together to use while coaching my Orangetheory Fitness classes and they were a hit! And making mixes can be highly addicting! 🤪🙌🏼
So many glitches
by Torismash on 2020/02/19 14:26
Pacemaker glitches constantly. Will not play playlists or gets stuck on the same songs. I’ve submitted for help before with no reply. I recently downloaded pyro to replace it and haven’t had any issues. I absolutely do not recommend pacemaker to anyone especially those that use it for group fitness classes. It’s caused far too many problems and to pay what I do monthly such a simple issue should not be recurring. I’m shocked that there aren’t more reviews stating this bc the company I work for I hear multiple complaints about the same issue daily.
Confusing upgrade
by rad115 on 2020/12/18 20:28
I was worried when I updated that I couldn’t play my own music collection. It took a few restarts to get the cancel button to show up on the promo screen. After I had to enable Apple Music and quit the app before my local library would show up. Hope this helps other users.
Tempo changer?
by HotDoggggss on 2018/03/05 19:05
Did you take out the tempo feature because that was the only reason I got the app Do you think it would be possible to add the tempo changer to the next update??? I don't have an iPad and I find that feature the most useful? I love the app by the way I just wish it had that one extra feature
Honestly I was loving this App until...
by ColeGoddard on 2020/02/19 01:26
It started crashing anytime I tried playing one of my playlists. I’m an instructor and rely on this app to hit sprints perfectly and now I can’t even play music through it anymore. Please for the love of music and teaching fix this immediately. It was very buggy from the beginning often times not letting me edit transitions in the moment or I’d start a playlist and it would only play the first song and then stop. But now I can’t play my playlists at all!
Needs Work
by Unhappy Camper Pro on 2019/02/09 19:54
Unfortunately, the iPhone version is a huge disappointment when compared to the iPad version, the absence of some of the most useful features renders this version useless. It’s essentially an app offering song matching based on BPM as its greatest asset, I don’t want to be unkind, but otherwise it’s just a glorified fade/transition tool. Not useful at all, even with the extra features available for purchase. I’m not sure who could actually find great benefit from using this app. It won’t mix anything for you, which is fine, but it won’t allow you to adjust songs to match each other either, so that part is definitely deceptive. Update: being able to adjust transitions between songs isn’t that groundbreaking. I’m not sure of why the functionality is so limited in the mobile version. Maybe to encourage purchase of the iPad version? I don’t know.
Downloaded and nothing
by jamscottie on 2018/12/30 12:00
As my title says, I downloaded the app and I only get the splash screen. It finally opened and I looked at the mix that was available, saw I have 10 sessions, listened to the one mix that was available, and I get bumped to 6 sessions available.. how is that when I only listen, is that the way the app works? There is a seven day free trail, I’m not dutifully I’m interested...so what’s the deal, I actually get in on Monday , do a mix, listen seven times and it’s Sunday... seven days pass by? Yeah, don’t think I want the hassle or the hustle.
Couldn’t be happier than without it!
by Hihihihihihihihibitch on 2020/08/29 10:57
Sorry for the rough riding, glad you made it Bro. All of you included in that gender neutral usage of the word “Bro”, including those I may have forgotten to forgive. I forgive and love and acknowledge and value all of you not to mention I owe you all some big bucks. I’m sure we’ll be able to work it out now that I’ve graduated :). Cool, cool cool cool cool cool cool cool cool beesZzzzzZ.
Needs to Support Apple Music
by aaplsauce on 2017/07/16 22:18
This application is mind blowing. It is incredible what it's capable of. My only gripe is that I can't use tracks from Apple Music. Not sure what it will take, but this app needs to support Apple Music tracks. Apple, please allow developers to have access to Apple Music tracks for use in fantastic apps like this.
Please bring the mashup feature free and not a monthly payment thing
by Jklanier143 on 2018/06/04 22:56
I didn’t really meant to say that I want to go to the owner’s house I was just very angry, but if you make the mashup feature free and comes with app first thing it can bring so much more people to the app and not delete right away when they find out that the one main feature of the app is paid because almost no one wants to pay for a feature in a app like digital currency in a mobile app so please make that feature free it will make me and others very happy.
Expensive novelty
by Diddle my fiddle on 2019/12/20 08:41
This app could be pretty useful and more convenient if we were able to save mixes offline, had more control over how we cut the music up, and just general bug fixes. The app tends to get very weird when you use it for prolonged periods. While I understand that not all of this is in their control, what is in their control is the cost, For a fun little novelty they charge $5 a week, or $8 a month!
It’s really good, except
by PMelissaK on 2018/06/25 18:21
Okay of all the free DJ apps I’ve gotten this one is sooo good and easy to use! However I don’t like that I can’t cut the beginnings off of songs. A lot of songs I can’t use because I want the center of it not the beginning. Idk if I buy it if that’ll change and I don’t want to waste the money if it still doesn’t let me so yeah that’s the only thing I don’t like about it
Not Working
by ClutchHam on 2018/05/18 15:06
I’m using this app along with my iTunes library (like it says I can). I purchased a 12 month subscription hoping it would let me play my music, but that wasn’t working. I wasn’t even allowed full access to my library even though I payed money. I went to their support page and it was just as useless as the app. I couldn’t even email the group to find a solution without the page glitching out. App is a good idea, just wish it would work because I was really looking forward to using it a lot.
This app has been gutted
by getms420 on 2020/12/18 22:07
What happened to this app can’t even do anything because you have to pay for premium. You pay for premium guess what now you have limited songs to even use so those nice playlist you probably spent hours even days mixing are all now chopped up. So there’s no real way to even fixingThis app even if you’re trying hard enough to work around your limitations I’m disappointed this was the one app that made it easy to mix music now it is just another money hungry trash of a service
Great app...with a price
by Pieeater69 on 2020/12/14 20:17
Does everything I want out of a DJ app- music mixing and finding music. The almost too huge of a downside is of course the subscription service which I do want to pay for- albeit it’s 5 dollars a WEEK. Be wary. If you don’t pay the app starts to mysteriously act up and never work quite right however it’s still a great interface and easy way into DJ’ing
Great for group fitness
by nwoodruff4211 on 2019/11/18 16:07
I have been using this app to make mixes for classes for a while now. The app for the watch is kind of annoying so I deleted it off my watch to have better volume control. Really enjoy and highly recommend
Sooo close
by Ethan Philip Richard on 2019/06/16 02:17
I love this app. I love the concept and everything. But the bugs are getting a little to wild and I would love a 10 dollar charge for premium but not a 5 dollar a week charge. Not worth it for any app on Iphone. I’m absolutely in love with it it’s just now the bugs are getting to out of hand. It doesn’t play my music in order or my mixes and sometimes it refuses to even mix. Please fix the bugs pretty soon but if anybody is reading this give this app a try:)
Great, but buggy
by sklvsklvsklv on 2019/09/06 04:44
Let me start by saying I am a huge fan of this app. Its very unique and great in its functionality. However, as a piece of software it is horrendous at times. I will often try to make a mix and the app will be very unresponsive, it will take forever to load up a new song to the mix and more often than not the app will just crash. Good but could be far better for the user.
$20/mo for an app I already bought?
by Djpresstone on 2020/12/19 13:12
Bought this software early on, and it seems to work now the same way it did when I first bought it. No major new functionality with significant appeal. Enjoyed it so much I gladly paid for all the in-app purchases. Now I can’t use the app unless I pay an additional $5/wk? If I thought Pacemaker would shift its pricing model to such a greedy subscription rate, I would not have paid for the in-app purchases. Price point is way off-base... realistically I’d consider $5/year, or MAYBE $0.99/mo.
Many bugs
by Jeremyleew on 2020/02/26 13:08
I use pacemaker for work. It had smooth transitions and it’s fairly easy to use and learn. The problem is that there always seems to be bugs. Many times it cuts out on me when I need the music the most or it will freeze and keep repeating the song. Recently, it’s not working at all. I pay too much for this to have so many problems.
Crashing
by Shadx77 on 2018/08/04 08:34
Edit: Your last update last week fixed it! I forgot to uodate this review. Thanks :) The beat matching works well for house music but sometimes it crashes In autopilot mode. A feature request: I’d like to see color coding or faded tracks in the playlist that have already been played In the current mix.
Cool App!
by rovertime blog on 2020/05/03 18:55
I’m a big fan of this app! Love the interface. Rlyyyyyy user friendly too. Only minor prob is that I’m not sure how to slow down particular songs, to add for a slowed + reverb vibe. If someone could tell me how to do so, that’d be sweet. Otherwise, LOVE this app and would recommend for those who love mixing music!!!
Was great, now not so much
by PacemakerForThePeople on 2020/12/17 17:24
first things first, DO NOT UPDATE THIS APP As a fitness coach, this app was a gem making music. Our clients absolutely love the playlists we make as coaches. Used to be so easy to mix songs together. Now all of us coaches (nation wide) are having issues with the app in the sense of mixing songs and losing playlists. I’m talking losing HUNDREDS of songs and NUMEROUS playlists after YEARS of work. Hoping this message gets out to the creators to fix the changes 🙏
Love and hate the app !!!
by KnockOut-Ned on 2017/10/18 21:56
What the app allows me to do with my mixes is incredible. My blends just keep getting better as the app keeps improving. The hate is with the new update my app keeps freezing while I’m doing my mixes and the only way for me to get it out of it is by starting all over .. so that is really annoying.. please fix that bug. Overall could be a 5 Star app
Great app for quick playlist mixing
by scalemodlgiant on 2018/01/11 14:31
This app is finally everything I wanted it to be! A shame that the fine transition controls are behind a subscription pay wall, but I'm glad to finally have full control over my mixes.
Best Playlists!
by theotfsteph on 2020/07/31 23:31
I love using Pacemaker to create playlists. It mixed them together perfectly, and it’s incredibly easier to shorten songs that go on way too long. I’m only giving four stars, because the app glitches quite a bit, but I’m willing to put up with for the ease of creating playlists!
So close...
by willkill13 on 2019/03/04 21:22
I just downloaded the app but deleted it because of the fact that you cannot cut parts out of the song, I would’ve liked to keep just the solo of a certain song and then move on to another one. If they added a feature that allowed you to keep just the “best” parts of the song I would re-download and recommend... but until then I don’t have much use for the app.
