What Is Steelasophical?
A live band can be great .. there is that wonderful authentic throw back to the ole the caribbean days with a 3 or 4pc traditional steelband, and there are many excellent ones to chose from. Steelasophical is however something entirely different, Steelasophical bridges the gap between a DJ playing music tracks (backing racks) and a LIVE band (live steeldrums/percussions), by smoothly and seamlessly blending the two with the best of BOTH worlds – we also offer something quite unique to further augment the experience .. graphics. movies and visuals
Imagine having on a full 60″ screen, the views and sounds of a tropical caribbean beach, while listing to the live sounds of a lead steeldrum
Watch your fav Caribbean artist videos or be amazed by some onscreen visualisations and lighting DMX controlled show .. not to mention some colourful and expressive pull up banners to help seal the deal with that caribbean decor to your venue location
Why Video DJ?
The overall effect of a video disco is difficult to describe but easy to see once you have experienced the atmosphere with Platinum Videotech. The ingenious effect is quite simple. The videos help people get into the party spirit much quicker than that of a standard disco.
The screen is an integral part of the evenings entertainment. The party go-ers who like to dance will do so and watch the screen at the same time and the ones who have no intention of dancing will be entertained by watching the screens and either end up dancing or just be very happily entertained.
Have you invited your favourite pop stars to your event? Well, No need. With the Steelasophical Platinum Videotech Video Roadshow Package you can see them perform at your event on our large projector screens.
From the moment your guests walk into the room, they know this is no ordinary disco!

A wonderful addition to our service which is infinitely versatile. Being able to show music videos, live camera footage of a function, affirmations, slide shows, moving and still graphical images .. the benefits are self evident.

Numark iDJ Live DJ Controller
There has been a proliferation of iPad/ iPod touch/ iPhone devices for musicians of late, and now DJs can get in on the act, with the Numark iDJ Live DJ controller. In recent years, Numark have been very much at the forefront of computer based DJ technology. Rather than aiming their products just at professionals (although Numark do cater for those customers too- take a look at the amazing Numark N7 as demonstration), Numark let the technology they develop filter down into more affordable products, so that the aspiring DJ can get his hands on quality equipment. The Numark iDJ Live is just such a product.
Based around two mini vinyl-like platters (the older readers may find it evokes memories of buying 7” singles on a Saturday at Woolworth’s…), the Numark iDJ Live connects to an iOS device (that’s an iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch) via the digital interface connection at the bottom, and provides control for compatible DJ apps, such as Algoriddim djay. Between the two platters are mixer controls, with a cross fader, channel volume control and EQ. Designed to be the ideal portable DJ rig, the iDJ Live allows fast browsing of the music library on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.
When in use, the tracking and sensitivity of this unit is incredibly impressive, and it’s hard to believe so much functionality is possible from a device of this type.

Automatic beat & tempo detection
djay’s sophisticated on-the-fly song analysis calculates the beats per minute (BPM) and exact location of each beat, laying the groundwork for a host of other features including Auto-Sync and beat-synchronized scratching.
Visual mixing with waveforms
djay’s advanced audio wave form display gives you an overview of a song’s structure and allows you to visually cue to specific points to prepare the prefect transition.
Auto-Cut Scratching automatically applies the rhythmic pattern of the currently playing song to your scratches in real-time. Simply touch and move the record with two fingers to create stunning effects and go beyond the possibilities of the analog world.

Pre-Cueing with Headphones
Preview and prepare the next song through headphones:By enabling djay’s Split Output mode you can cue songs through headphones independently from the mix that goes through the main speakers for live DJing.
All you need is the Griffin DJ Cable, designed exclusively for djay.
The master output will be sent to the left channel and the cue output to the right channel (which is always the opposite turntable to the one audible through the master channel).
You will get a binaural signal for master and pre-cueing, so you will hear sound on both speakers connected to the master channel and in both ears of the headphones connected to the pre-cueing channel.
External Hardware Control
Numark’s iDJ Live controller was designed to seamlessly work with djay and is the perfect companion to enhance your DJ sets. Control djay on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch using two large performance platters and a central mixer section with a crossfader, buttons and knobs.
Carefully laid out to recreate the traditional two-decks-and-a-mixer setup, iDJ Live allows you to load your tracks and control them, cueing up the start point, performing advanced transitions and even scratching.

Dell XPS M2010
When Dell unveiled the XPS M2010 laptop concept at CES 2006, few expected it to reach the retail market. The 20-inch laptop was more audacious than anything we’d seen previously and the general consensus was that its enormous size made it too much of a freak to be taken seriously. Kudos to Dell, then, for throwing caution to the wind and bringing it to market. But is this a case of boldness before greatness, or has the world’s biggest PC manufacturer got more money than sense?
The XPS M2010 looks like no laptop before it. With the lid closed it resembles a large briefcase complete with a sturdy, leather-bound handle with silver support struts that extend halfway down the lid and base. The grip of the handle has a circular Dell logo at each end, and there’s another glowing Dell logo to be found towards the top of the lid. The laptop’s industrial-looking graphite colour is certainly different, but some users may prefer a more conventional black finish.
Unlike smaller XPS laptops, the M2010 uses latches to keep the lid shut when not in use. These are situated on either side of the lid. Unfortunately they feel a tad flimsy and we wouldn’t be surprised if they begin to fail after extended use. The base of the laptop is smoother than most, including that of the 12-inch XPS M1210. Aside from a latch for removing the battery, a single air vent and a circular subwoofer port, there’s little else to be found.
With the screen open, the XPS looks far more stylish. The 20-inch screen is the most imposing we’ve seen on any laptop, and the fact that the top of the screen sits close to eye level means you won’t have to hunch over the laptop. This is great for your posture — the XPS M2010 felt extremely comfortable to use during long periods. Impressively, the flexible screen hinge means the screen is height and rake adjustable so you can raise, lower and bring it closer to you for optimum comfort.
The base section of the XPS M2010 is home to its power button, which is positioned to the far right-hand side. To the left of this is a Windows Media Center ‘home’ button, and to the far left a set of indicator lights that show the laptop’s Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, hard disk and power status. The M2010 uses the most unusual optical drive we’ve seen on any laptop. It’s a top-loading model with two transparent glass panels that let you see the CD spinning inside the unit.
