Open Labs introduces Stagelight 4.0

Open Labs today introduced Stagelight 4, the highly anticipated new version of its flagship, easy-to-use, music creation software. This new version of Stagelight features three significant enhancements – SampleVerse (a powerful sampler instrument), MIDI Polyphonic Expression (MPE) with touch controls and a new platform addition with iOS support. With these enhancements, Stagelight 4.0 is the most powerful, accessible, inexpensive cross-platform Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) in the world.

“Stagelight 4 is our most significant release yet,” said Cliff Mountain, Open Labs’ CEO. “We all have the ability to be creative. Stagelight 4 gives everyone an easy introduction to creating music along with new innovative features. We can’t wait to hear what our customers make with this one!”

SampleVerse - New Sampler Instrument

Stagelight 4 includes the brand new SampleVerse, a hybrid sampler and synthesizer instrument, to bring revolutionary new sounds to the mix. Play, arpeggiate, pulse, shift and filter sounds with complete touch screen control. Scroll through dozens of new preset instruments or dive into its unique workflow to create new blends of samples like never before in Stagelight. The deeper a creator dives into SampleVerse the more control they’ll find. Sample any sound with automatic pitch detection and correction. SampleVerse gives everyone the power to design and combine unique sounds on any device.

MIDI Polyphonic Expression (MPE) - Enhanced Expressiveness

Stagelight 4 adds full MPE support. MIDI Polyphonic Expression blurs the boundaries between keyboards and stringed instruments. You can now control multiple parameters (pitch, bend, timbre) of every single note separately. With MPE and Stagelight, all touchscreen devices transform into expressive instruments that anyone can play.

iOS Support – Cross-Platform Support

By adding Stagelight to the App Store on iOS, Open Labs has connected every major platform together in a seamless user experience. Creators can now begin a song on their mobile device, regardless of platform, and finish it on their Windows PC or Mac computer. With iOS, Stagelight opens the door to users in search of the easiest and most revolutionary way to create music with loops and instruments in 2018.

Stagelight 4.0 other key features include:

● 9 Instruments
● 14 Effects
● Third party plugin support (VST, AU

Here for the gear

I have a Neko QSX. I got it 2010 and used it for about 3 years. I'm getting back into music production and would rather upgrade the Neko than buy all new hardware. All of its parts appear to be working well. However, I could not download the MPC software, Ableton Live 10, or the Splice app. I'm assuming this is because I need to update all of my OS. I'm also concern about the old i3 chip and its limited RAM. Can anyone help?

Sorry Open Lab Team, but when we see an Open Lab announcement, we think Neko.. Bring back the Neko.. We already have enough DAWs on the market.
