Today Dell announced it is teaming up with music software provider Open Labs, LLC and award-winning rock band Linkin Park to offer Open Labs Music OS 3.0 software for download on dell.com and on select Dell products, including a limited availability music solution called the Linkin Park Edition.
To celebrate the upcoming release of Linkin Park's new album LIVING THINGS, Dell is offering a special limited time music solution called the Linkin Park Edition available immediately. It features exclusive, custom-made Linkin Park Sounds, Open Labs Music OS software, and high performance Dell laptops and All in One devices. Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park said, "Technology is at the core of our music creation process. As technology expands, so do the possibilities for creativity. We are excited to partner with Dell to issue an exclusive Linkin Park Edition Music OS package that blends Dell technology and Open Labs music creation software. The combination of Dell's powerful computing, along with Music OS's seamless software will be an invaluable tool on our upcoming world tour, as we gear up to release our new album, LIVING THINGS, on June 26."
Update: Mike Corley (mcorley) from the Open Labs Technical Support Department registered here at LPA to provide us with more information and an insight into what we can expect from this new Software. He said:
What we have is a very powerful line of Dell laptops and all-in-one PC's, powered by Open Labs Music OS, our ground breaking live performance and light duty DAW. Linkin Park has been absolutely fantastic to work with, and have provided us with over 200 original sounds and loops, created by the band, as well as an exclusive demo song for Music OS.
These sounds are just the beginning, and new sounds from LP will be released over the next year on a regular basis.
So, this is much more than a Linkin Park themed PC. This is LP partnering with companies who can put the tools to make music directly in your hands.Click HERE for a video that demonstrates just what Music OS is.I took a screen shot of Music OS open and the LP demo song loaded. It's all loops from the band, using our included VST. Free for you to mix and remix, chop fold and manipulate.
It's called "Bruiser". It's pretty loud, has a definite dubstep influence, and give a good starting point to your interactions with Music OS.
