MYSTIC FREQUENCIES - OPENLABS NEkO No Talking Demo #2 - Mtv Music Generator from 1999!


video upload by

Part 1 previously posted here.

"More fun with the Openlabs NEkO. Many people seem to like to complain saying "its old", "Antiquated" or "Its ancient running windows XP" etc... Well yes, for what it was designed to be, its old, BUT its still fun and an interesting piece of synth history along with its little brother the MIkO. Just because its old and runs an old GUI/OS doesn't mean its useless, you don't toss your Memorymoog just because its using a Z80 processor and firmware that's 40 years old. Here is the NEkO running with the old Mtv Music Generator from 1999! This combo is still pretty fun to mess with."

"Its basically a computer and has tons of vst's installed. The touch screen and all knobs work. The software appears to be stock."

Check out a video from 2009 here, and a handful of posts here. The DBeat was introduced in 2009 and Open Labs went under in 2010, with new owners shortly after. Open Labs was first featured on the site back in 2007, "brigging sexy back" with the Timbaland Special Edition MiKo LX. See the Open Labs site label for everything that has gone up over the years. Note a ton of videos are gone as that is the unfortunate nature of people and the internet. History lost into the ether... The posts remain as a record of that history.

http://soundcloud.com/4tkstudios/invada-porta

I created this track for a job I had on, for a video show reel. I will post up a link to the video when it is completed. I tried matching the audio to video as well as I could. I have a very old computer that's useless when it comes to video stuff. Hope you guys enjoy it anyway!"
