Timbaland Special Edition MiKo Overview
Open Labs, the leading designer and developer of computer based music production solutions, is proud to introduce the Timbaland Special Edition MiKo keyboard workcenter. Building on the standard features of the MiKo LX, an all-in-one portable studio powered by Windows(TM) XP that 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, the Timbaland Special Edition takes this robust instrument to an entirely new level of performance and creativity.
Dressed in an all-new Arctic White Chassis accented by Chrome Endbells - the Timbaland Special Edition MiKo will stand out in any crowd. The Timbaland Special Edition MiKo upgraded to 4GB of RAM features E-MU(TM)'s new Proteus(TM) X2 Streaming Sound Module V2.5 with over 7,000 instruments, including the new Ensoniq(TM) Urban Legends(TM) Sound Library that contains the sounds from Ensoniq's ASR(TM)/EPS(TM)/MR(TM)/ASR-X(TM)/ZR(TM) instruments. These sounds were specifically requested by Timbaland, and are only available in the Timbaland MiKo, an Open Labs exclusive.

Running within the new Proteus X 2.5 environment, these keyboards are reborn inside the Timbaland Special Edition MiKo providing world-class audio quality, choice of instruments, ease of use and represents a value of over $60,000 if the actual keyboards were purchased individually.

When combined with the new Open Labs sound library V4, the Timbaland Edition MiKo contains over 24-gigabytes of premium sounds, constituting 25,027 presets. The street price for the bundled software and sound libraries is $2,967, which includes $487 worth of Open Labs Special Edition plugins, optimized by the software developers for use with the MiKo.

"Timbaland is really on top of the world right now. His music is everywhere," said President of Open Labs, Victor Wong. "To think that he is using our gear to produce these hits is cool, but the fact that he has put a little bit of himself into the MiKo, making it an even better instrument, is incredible. This is all very exciting for us."

"We are honored that Timbaland asked us to help create his ultimate instrument," said E-MU's Senior Product Manager, Ichi Nagai. "We are excited to put together the exclusive Ensoniq Urban Legends Sound Library for Open Labs that contains many of Timbaland's favorite sounds that he's used in his work over the years."

The Timbaland Special Edition MiKo will start shipping on August 15, 2007. The estimated street price is: $3,899.

I love that show, his words of wisdom at the end of every show are inspiring and inspirational. Also, it helps to see the other side of the spotlight, regarding family issues, life situations and every day life.
