As you may have seen from some of the equipment pictures on our Web site, Rob has incorporated the latest in computer technology to provide superior sound, lightning fast ability to accommodate music requests, and fabulous flexibility to provide the perfect musical atmosphere for every event.
do you like just download music off the Internet?"
NO! Rob has well over 6,000 full length CDs -- all legal. He took many months to transfer that library of music into computer-based mp3 files [recorded at a high bit rate (320) for superior sound quality]. Rob has over a HALF MILLION song titles in his library for EVERY event!
"Is this DJing from an iPod?"
NO. Absolutely not. Lots of people are enjoying the flexibility of playing mp3 files on portable devices. Many people have lots of songs loaded onto their laptops as well. BUT, the sound quality, reliability, and flexibility of playing these through an amplified sound system are NOT of professional grade or standards. The equipment that Rob has invested in IS professional gear, designed specifically for DJing. The difference is like night and day. Here are some of the details:
|This is how the equipment is set up. Professional mixing board (Rane MP-44, their highest-end, top-of-the-line mixer); Denon DNHD-4500 Dual controller with built-in sound card; Linked Dual CD player; dedicated laptop running the Virtual DJ software; EIGHT TERABYTES terabyte of storage of over 500,000 songs on 2 external hard drives. Read below for more details.|
Satellite P520-S |
17" wide laptop; Pentium 4; 3 GHz, 80 GB HD; 800 MHz BUS Speed; 1 GB RAM; Windows XP Home; 80 GB hard drive. The ONLY thing this laptop is used for is for DJing. It is not used to surf the Internet (keeping it virus-free). This is a true work-horse of a computer.
||Virtual DJ Pro
This is the software, specifically designed for DJing. It includes many features to allow tremendous flexibility over the music, being able to adjust the pitch, tempo, and EQ, right through the software for each song. This is their top-of-the-line version of the Virtual DJ software.
in Karaoke module|
Virtual DJ software is integrated directly into the program, and our Karaoke CD+G library of over 13 THOUSAND Karaoke songs has been transferred into this format. This allows us to add a great dynamic to any event in which the client may wish to incorporate Karaoke. We display the lyrics on a large screen monitor for the singers and audience.
We also have the ability to play THOUSANDS of music videos through this program, projecting the videos onto a LARGE screen. Rob can adjust the tempo, pitch, etc. to perfectly beatmix music sets with amazing visual impact!
Thousands of titles from all different music genres.
|Denon DN-HC4500 Controller
This is the controller Rob uses to play the music, karaoke, music videos, etc. It integrates seamlessly with Virtual DJ program allowing Rob to shape the music's pitch, tempo, loop, sample and control the music to create the perfect atmosphere with NO PAUSES between songs. You can see that this is a far cry from "DJing" with an iPod.
and DAC-2 Back-up Controllers
M-Audio Firewire 410
4 x 6 24-bit/96kHz I/O 2 x 4 analog operation (RCA) Digital S/PDIF (coaxial) I/O w/ 2-channel PCM Digital out also supports AC-3/DTS surround sound. This is a $200+ sound card that delivers fabulous sound quality - a sound card that many other DJs aspire to one-day get. And this is a BACK-UP!
another back-up sound card!|
Ego Systems Gigaport AG
8 x RCA Analog Output(8 x 24 bit D/A Converter)
This is another back-up sound card. As you can probably tell by now, Rob goes almost overboard on back-ups. But that means that YOU can have peace of mind, knowing that there is nothing that is going to keep the musical entertainment from happening at YOUR event!
"OK, Rob, so what happens if your primary system goes down, and your back-up system goes down, and your back-up to your back-up goes down?"
answer to that is... I go back to playing that same music on CDs that I carry
with me to every event!
The bottom line is that with every part of Rob's service, he has invested in high-grade, professional equipment and back-up equipment. It's not just because he likes the gadgets. It's because these TOOLS do help make a difference in making sure that each and every client's event is going to be the best it can be. You have one shot at making your event a success. Rob wants to know that the tools we will use will be first rate. Because we believe you, as the client, deserve nothing less.
