The NeKo XXL from Open Labs is an all-in-one music production and performance system, with a powerful built-in computer, a touch screen LCD display, numerous control surfaces, a 10 x 10 audio interface, and a 61 key semi-weighted Fatar keyboard. By packing an entire recording studio into a single keyboard's body, the NeKo XXL enables you to create and perform music anywhere you travel, with no set-up time and without separate components. It's an outstanding solution for live musicians who want to use software instruments on stage, and for active producers who just want to power up one device and get to work.
Open Labs goes above and beyond just providing a turn-key hardware system with included music software. The NeKo XXL comes with a pre-configured version of Windows XP that's been optimized for music production. A number of custom Open Labs software applications are also installed that make using the NeKo XXL a lot easier and unleash its full creative power. A special version of FXpansion's Guru is included which utilizes the integrated Bump MP trigger pads. Open Labs RiFF software adds real-time control and organization when running numerous virtual instruments.
The powerful 4 terabyte Core2Quad computer that's built into the NeKo XXL can easily handle even the most consumptive virtual instruments, effects, and applications. In the event that something should go wrong, Open Labs provides some of the best tech support in the industry. You can even connect the NeKo XXL to the Internet through its Ethernet port and have Open Labs tech support tap into your machine to view and diagnose the problem remotely. The NeKo XXL comes with 1 year of free Platinum Support Services, which includes training sessions and some third party software support.
Above all, the NeKo XXL was created to inspire musicians to perform at their best. Its 61 key Fatar keyboard is a delight to play, and a full license to the popular music performance and composition software Ableton Live is included. The built-in 24-bit 96 kHz audio interface is fully compatible with Pro Tools M-Powered software (available separately). This is your chance to get to know the product that scores of professional touring musicians have come to rely upon, and that superstar producers have used to create chart-topping hits.
