If you had two stylish turntables of the night and a mixer this Akai 16 remix is the ideal addon as the third replacement turntable because it dose everything a third stylish turntable can do.
It runs like a pro tools drum machine and a real time simple sampler in a sense. This Akai 16 remix incorporates some nice functions - one of the main features is you can digitally scratch with it, which is great.
It's very user friendly once you’ve gone through the documentation manual. Its got 16 key pads on it and Akai 16 samples adjustable rate as high as 32khz at the top end, 4 track sequencer, you can load up your own sample types while you are Djing, the unit will upload onto a computer disk so you can prepare it all before you play in the entertainment club which is very handy, it can loop and can trim. This is A good piece of kit all round.
I like the 8-voice polyphony sound, triggering pads, tap tempo to the beat of a drum, and smoother cross faders most useful features.
You can make a good dance tune on the Akai 16 and you can mix with it as well.
You could take two of these Akai 16 remix units and a djing mixer to the house night club, instead of a big box of vinyl plus cds with a table of records and two 1210 decks, because you can store all the best tunes ever on disk beforehand.
I also like that idea don't you?
You can have all your loops on it and could mix with both of them. That is hi-tech DJ'ing. What Akai has done is built a sampler for a DJ where as other Akai samplers have been more geared towards the musician in the studio. It's a big seller on the dance floor for the DJ.

Derby lights amazing light show will be a fabulous addition to your aluminium truss display systems bar. The disco Derby Chauvet comes in several styles from a single row of colored lenses for a light ray from each up to 6 lens rows. The flat rectangular lens in the derby light was first used in the flat beam spots in the 1980’s where there was just two focusing lens and a static 500w lumens halogen filament.
The effect of light on the dance floor is now open with coloured beautiful beams. These Derby lights are just right for the special effect light show that most of the Friday night club the disco and funk jazz bands are seeking to provide to their audiences. There are only two down sides to the Derby light (1) it gets very hot but you can install a second cooling fan to drop the temperature and preserve build life. (2) The plano convex lenses are none glass filter dichotic lenses but this does reflect in the Chauvet Derby price, making it more cost effective.
You tube video of a Derby light in full swing.

Eminence Designer have made a state-of-the-art enclosure design program for making the plans for full range speaker, woofer speaker bass plans and high frequency horn speaker plans to enhance your top-end sound output. This acoustic design program will run on the Windows 95, 98, NT4 2000 or later platforms for the PCs. This saves vast amount of time when your drawing up the bass speaker plans for a bandpass sub and not take numerous hours working on how to solve complex mathematical equations manually.The Eminence Designer will work out the box enclosure volume and the port tuning frequency sizes after you have entered in the speaker parameters. The speaker cab Designer covers the models vented horns, bandpass filter, closed box, and passive radiator boxes. On completion for your professional free speaker plans, its time to print out the finished graphs and drawings.
Now to chose the best speaker wood to apply, there are 3 robust good woods (MDF) Medium-density fiberboard, chipboard and Marine plywood. Never use nails, only screws and wood glue, nails will come lose with the sound vibrations.

A helicopter is a classic disco effect light from the sound of the 70's era. The six or four arms of this spinning disco light effect spin round illuminating the ceiling in sweeping beams of light for the 30 Watt PAR 36 Pin Spot Halogen Lamps, mounted on a central rotating axis point. The disco helicopter light is furnished with 6 coloured gel filters fitted over PAR 36 Pin Spot lamps. The twister helicopter movement adds a lively feel to your parties. This Disco helicopter effect doesn’t travel so well and flite case or a good sturdy cardboard box is really required for transport.

It is also important to carry a wide selection of power cable connector blocks and wiring plug sockets.
Also having a full range of glass 20mm & 35mm electrical fuses. Never replace a fuse with larger rating fuses than what is originally intended for the unit’s specification. If you're not sure of what size fuse to use, 1 amp equals the wattage of your country’s voltage. Example if you’re electrical voltage used is 240 volts then a 1-amp rating fuse will hold a load of 240 watts before it will blow. If the electrical voltage is 220 volts then a 1-amp rating fuse will hold a power load of 220 watts before it will blow. (Amps X volts = wattage). Ps sometimes you my see in a disco repair manual for fixing & servicing, the amps is expressed as an “I” also known as the current. It is also very beneficial to try to obtain the disco service repair manuals with each of the individual pieces of your hire electrical lighting equipment. Workshop repair manuals provide the best technical fixing instructions and information on a wiring diagram for doing your sound to light unit disco repairs. Most of the manufactures try to give good technical support to there product.
I had a problem with one of my NJD 4004 light controllers. So I phoned NJD, the next day first class post arrived the full electronic schematics diagrams. Nottingham NJD Electronics repair manuals for free.

(1) The first method of increasing the level of a louder sound is the design of the speaker box enclosure, it should be a acoustic fold exponential horn or sub horn hyperbolic horn for better bass roll-off and solid designed .How this works is similar to playing a game of billiards as you hit one ball and that in turn hits two balls and so on, this is how the air molecules behave inside the exponential horn and that’s what gives the three decibels of gain in the speaker and closure.
(2) The next method for music louder sound is the incorporation of IE 3 way active crossover unit this makes the sound split up into its three individual frequencies so the electronic crossover feeding the base amplifier is not amplifying the top end treble and vice versa for the other amps. There's no point in sending a frequency to IE to a speaker driver that it is incapable of reproducing, the signal just gets lost and wasted. This is saving power; the effect of this is really making each one of your dedicated dj amplifiers three times more effective.
(3) The method number three to gain music louder sound is the incorporation of a multi effects zoom, DBX or ALESIS 3630 compressor gate and noise limiter.When music is being played there is about twelve decibels of bounds gain, the behringer compressor turns down the gain by about -6 dB. There is a setting that you can turn it down to three dB but this will make your music sound very flat and unresponsive by having too much compressor audio work in place. Because you have turned your sound levels down and flattened out some of the big peeks you can then turn your sound master up by +6 dB to take you back to your regional position or in reality would have gained +6 dB in actual fact.
(4) Music loudest sound last method is to use exciter expander; a good example is a 482i sonic maximizer by the BBE Company. This adds an extra life and vitality to the sound of music making the hill come alive.
If you incorporate all four of these methods you will attain a figure of around of twelve decibels (+12 dB) of gain which is four times as louder as your original sound system than what would be by using conventional speakers with passive crossover design and amplifiers.
I have been designing and building speaker sound systems for around twenty years now trying out different acoustic design enclosures and drivers. But my own personal sound system is a mixture from different companies and manufacturers, some of the manufacturers produce really good base product and some of the manufacturers make high-quality midrange and so on. You can't just use one particular brand of speakers (Turbo sound, Carlsbro, Fane, JBL, Peavey, Richard Alan) to attain a perfect flat response across the frequency range.
The ohm amplifiers I am using are a mixture as well but not a complete mixture, I am trying to use cs 250 cloud of Sheffield, hpr qsc mx QSC audio 3402, amplifier""yamaha and amplifier c-audio ra 3001,ra 3000. You can increase your base response by modifying your amplifier power supply, or build a second smaller power supply to run in conjunction with it and increase the electrolytic capacitors. I will chat little further in my blog on the subject of amplifier modifications
