Open Labs tell us that Gen 3 MiKo is the first portable digital music, video, and animation system that provides the power of a fully-loaded Windows XP-based computer, a world-class synthesizer, a video mixer/recorder, and a broadband Internet hub in an affordable unit.
Tom Linklater, vice president of sales for Open Labs told us, â€œThe MiKo has captured the imagination of a wide range of musical artists; it is simple enough to demonstrate in a dealerâ€™s shop and complex enough to perform every kind of multimedia session that a user could want. The MiKo SE and MiKo LX represent a new breakthrough product for the market, and we will be able to satisfy all requests for what is a tremendous mobile production instrument.â€�
MiKo extends the power of Open Labsâ€™ NeKo to a broader audience of users, which include DJs, VJs, music video hobbyists, and amateur musicians. At the heart of MiKo is a 64-bit single and dual core processor, which drives a powerful built-in, design-specific, full-featured, Windows XP- based computer system. MiKo users can literally record, edit, mix, master, burn, and distribute their creations, whether high-definition video or 7.1 surround sound audio, on DVD or audio CD or send straight to the Internet, either through Ethernet or Wi-Fi.
The MiKo SE includes:
Also included is the Open Labs Karsyn VST host for limitless sounds; Cubase LE for recording, and Traktor LE for DJing.
The MiKo LX includes:
The Open Labs MiKo is the first integrated portable digital media workcenter to provide a production hub for all digital artistic elements, including:
MiKo features Open Labsâ€™ suite of applications â€“ Karsyn, mFusion, and the Open Labs Navigator â€“ which, say the company, are a breakthrough set of technologies that allow users to control different musical keyboard devices and software packages through a single interface. Open Labs say that together they create a clean, efficient environment for creation and performance. Instead of a complicated general-purpose computing environment, MiKo presents a streamlined user experience ideally suited for efficiency in the studio, and clarity and speed on stage.
Craig Negoescu, chief architect of Open Labs had this to say, â€œThe MiKo is a game-changer for todayâ€™s digital artists, and the new MiKo SE and MiKo LX capture all of the essential features for a single-unit multimedia unit at a competitive price point. We have generated tremendous interest from our initial MiKo product, and can now address an even wider audience with these new units.â€�
Included with each MiKo is the Open Labs sound library, which contains more than 5,000 preset sounds and hundreds of effects, as well as Cubase LE for direct- to-disk recording and mastering.
Pricing and Availability:
Open Labs will sell the standard version of the MiKo, the MiKo SE, for $2,999 and the fully-loaded version, the MiKo LX, for $3,499.
