Open Labs, designer and developer of music workstations, unveiled their latest keyboard/studio instrument, the NeKo LE. Based on the company's NeKo OpenSynth platform, the NeKo LE incorporates a full personal computer, powered by the Intel Pentium 4 processor and is targeted at songwriters, music producers, and hobbyists that want to play, record, mix, master, and burn their music in a single, portable unit. The NeKo LE is pricd at $2,595.00.
The NeKo LE provides an easy upgrade path to the fully featured NeKo64, and is also sold with a built-in 15-inch LCD monitor for a price of $3,195.00. The NeKo is capable of hosting up to 50-plug-ins simultaneously, and play up to 250-voice polyphony. A complete keyboard-workstation, the NeKo LE offers 24 bit/192 kHz audio quality and hardware accelerated DSP effects.
Designed with standard PC-compatible hardware and software in mind, the NeKo LE can play tens of thousands of sounds offered by industry-standard VSTi software synthesizers, samplers, and audio processing plug-ins. Any time that new sounds and effects are available, users can instantly install them into the NeKo LE.
