A full music studio to go, with 61-keys, external keyboard, 15" LCD touchscreen, software, and more.
With a 15" touchscreen, 61 keys, integrated QWERTY keyboard, and optimized Windows OS, NeKo XXL is an entirely new class of multimedia instrument.

The Open Labs NeKo XXL's optimized Windows OS natively supports virtually any music application or plug-in developed for a PC. From Pro Tools to Nuendo, Native Instruments Komplete to Spectrasonics Omnisphere, NeKo LX5 does it all with ease.
This Gen5 NeKo XXL is equipped with the Bump MP integrated drum module, designed to allow the user to create beats and trigger any sound, loop, or sample in real time. Enhanced with a special Open Labs version of Guru from FXpansion, key features of the Bump MP include: (16 plus 1) fully assignable pads, note repeat, max level, fixed level fader, transport controls, chromatic mode, hold, pad tune, multiple groove preset, and eight engines with 24 presets per engine.

The edit section consists of multiple, fully assignable controls including: (8) encoders, (1) LCD display (for encoders), (4) buttons, and (4) banks (total of 32 control parameters).
Exclusive to the Gen5 Open Labs NeKo XXL is the redesigned, fully mappable Alpha II Panel, which allows the user to control any parameter they desire, and two phantom-powered preamps in addition to the eight I/Os. A full version of the multiple award-winning Ableton Live 7 is also included for the first time in the XXL's history.
NeKo XXL is full of relevant and compelling sounds like Open Labs' The Master's Series Library produced by multi-platinum producer Mr. Porter (Denaun Porter), as well as Open Labs' own V5 sound, sample, and loop library.
Part of the included software package, Open Labs Riff is an entirely new concept in virtual instrument hosting. Written from the ground up by Open Labs, Riff encompasses over 6 years of live performance and studio production knowledge gathered from some of the world's top artists, engineers, composers, and producers. Its advanced features include Live Controls which allows the user to create any number of virtual controls in real time that can be mapped to various effects and other parameters. Advanced intelligence allows any number of virtual controllers to manipulate any number of other virtual controllers, providing automation for virtual instruments and effects. Rewire allows for this powerful host application to be used within any DAW program.
Open Labs instruments are equipped with FireWire, USB, PCI EXPRESS and an Ethernet port, allowing access to the Internet via a broadband connection. Open Labs' tech support can log-in to your system, and their online technicians can remotely view and diagnose any issue—while you are still in your own studio.
Included in the NeKo XXL's arsenal is over 200 world-class virtual instruments and effects, as well as over 20,000 presets with virtually unlimited capability for third party plug-ins and applications.

Comments about Open Labs NeKo XXL Portable Keyboard Workstation:
You'll pretty much be able to reduce a lot of your studio equipment to just the NiKO!!! I have actually sold a lot of my keyboards since I have the MimiK? software. I am flawlessly running Cubase, ProTool M-Powered8 & Reason4.0...and to make things better I can actually travel with my studio. When I am traveling I can bring my gear with me and still have sessions or produce, or do sound design, etc. Love it!!! People will try to compare it to a MAC...but I don't know why b/c this is total different from any MAC/PC or DAW
