OpenLabs Announces Music OS 3.1 Update

NAMM Show 2012Austin-based music workstation maker and software developer OpenLabs today offered a first glimpse at its updated live performance software, Music OS 3.1.

Open Labs’ Music OS is the company’s first non-proprietary, “touch-screen-friendly” music creation and performance software, designed specifically to address the needs of musical creators and performers on any PC computer.

Music OS 3.1 features both technical and social updates, and also debuts the all new OL VST Suite Library with over 15 exciting and easy-to-use instruments and effects.

New Features in Music OS 3.1  Include:

  • SoundCloud™ Direct Integration – With SoundCloud undoubtedly the ‘cloud standard’ for millions of online music creators, Music OS projects and session files can now easily be rendered and uploaded directly to all SoundCloud user accounts.  Posting songs to the world from the studio or stage has never been easier!
  • OL VST Suite Library – Music OS 3.1 delivers its first suite of VST instruments and effects for music creation and performance. 5 instruments including Dubstar™, a bass synth designed for dubstep wobble and deep bass tones. BUMP™, a straight forward drum module complete with Open Labs “bump” sample library.  IDM™, a creative synth for modulating soundscapes and atmospheric swells. OL Remix™ allows you to load an audio sample and chop, screw, and rearrange the beat.  10 VST effects for midi devices or incoming audio signals including Reverb, Chorus, Delay, EQ, Distortion, Filter, Compressor, Limiter, Looper, and more.
  • True 64 Bit Application – Music OS 3.1 takes full advantage of today’s powerful 64Bit hardware and software operating systems. With unbridged 64Bit technology, larger files, projects and VST’s can be loaded and handled more efficiently throughout the creation and performance process.  Music OS 3.1 also allows backwards compatibility for 32Bit users.

One thought on “OpenLabs Announces Music OS 3.1 Update

  1. Music OS has one of the ugliest interfaces I’ve seen. It looks like a UI prototype from software developers. They should really put more development into the actual touch and UI. There are a whole lot of really slick looking and great functioning iOS touch control options of various types, they could at least copy one of those!
