Timbaland Special Edition Neko

We post information about Timbaland's Special Edition Miko but recently Open Labs released the bigger brother of the Miko, the Special Edition Neko. Here's all the info:

Open Labs, the leading designer and developer of computer based music production solutions, introduced a companion to the popular Timbaland Special Edition MiKo today. The new Timbaland Special Edition NeKo, an all-in-one production studio powered by Windows™ XP, is capable of running virtually any Windows XP compatible software including a variety of DAW software, virtual instruments (VSTi), virtual effects (VST) and other music applications. Dressed in the same Arctic White Chassis color scheme, the Timbaland Special Edition NeKo is the perfect solution for the studio to road experience.

“Timbaland wanted the ability to work on his music from home on a larger unit and still be able to travel easily with his MiKo. This was a fantastic way for Timbaland to achieve this by utilizing gear with matching specs and software,” said Victor Wong, Founder and Chairman of Open Labs. “By introducing this model we are able to provide the features that most people are looking for, while reducing the price over $1,000 from the NeKo LX model.”

The Gen4 models are now equipped with Intel Core2Quad™ processors providing the most processing power in any production station available today. With the edition of Translator™, specially written for Open Labs by Chicken Systems™, users can now easily convert and manage many different file types within the Open Labs environment. Open Labs believes in the “out-of-the-box” experience – meaning, with a little knowledge, anyone can be ready to play and record instantly. Included in the preinstalled software is Reaper from Cockos, a DAW with unlimited tracks, which records audio-midi and integrates all of the user’s Karsyn presets in an easy to use drag and drop format.

The Timbaland Special Edition NeKo features E-MU™’s new Proteus™ X2 Streaming Sound Module V2.5 with over 10,148 instruments, including the new Ensoniq™ Urban Legends™ Sound Library that contains the sounds from Ensoniq’s ASR™/EPS™/MR™/ASR-X™/ZR™ instruments. These sounds were specifically requested by Timbaland, and are only available in the Timbaland Special Edition units, an Open Labs exclusive.
