  Rocksteady - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Key musical differences between ska and rocksteady were a more relaxed tempo, a diminished use of horns, and a change of the role of the bass.
Rocksteady arose at a time when young people from the Jamaican countryside were flooding into the urban ghettos of Kingston, in neighborhoods known as Riverton City, Greenwich Town and, most notoriously, Trenchtown.
Although rocksteady was a short-lived phase of Jamaican popular music, it was hugely influential to the reggae and dancehall styles that followed, and many basslines originally created for rocksteady songs continue to be recycled and used in contemporary Jamaican music.

RockSteady is a DSP (Digital Sound Processing) plugin for WinAmp or Apollo which equalizes the sound level (compresses the dynamic range of the signal).
In other words, the normally quiet sounds are amplified, and so you don't have to adjust the volume between the songs or during a quiet section of a song anymore.
Besides, if you want louder, more massive sound, just like an FM radiostation or a music television, RockSteady is the answer.
