An obvious fit is in the wellness industry, but we think it’s much broader than that,” says Jonas Norberg, CEO of Pacemaker. “Our AI DJ is so good that it can improve the experience of any playlist, creating seamless, great-sounding, well-timed transitions between songs and audio."

Thanks to this timely acquisition of game-changing AI tools, Tuned Global’s customers will soon reap the benefits of Pacemaker’s groundbreaking innovations.
