      Open Labs SoundSlate Virtual Instrument Player and Hardware DAW (584480)
Availability:  


The ultimate virtual instrument player and hardware DAW for your keyboard workstation or MIDI controller.

SoundSlate sound module redefines music production and performance by incorporating Open Labs' music operating environment including the critically acclaimed virtual instrument host Riff, 8000+ of sounds and effects, a robust audio I/O, and a powerful computer core running Windows XP into a 1U-ultra compact case that packs a punch.

Hardware DAW (Digital Audio Workstation)
The SoundSlate DAW gives you professional music production equipment for the price of a laptop. Ultra-high performance 24-bit/ 192kHz A/D converters (same as Pro Tools HD 192 I/O interface). Make music right out of the box with the SoundSlate's 8000+ preset sounds and effects. Includes Cubase LE, Sonar LE, LIVE LE and much more.

VST Player
Open up your closed systems with Open Labs Soundslate. Turn your traditional keyboard workstation into an open system. Run any VST and get more for less out of your gear using Open Labs' Riff (VST hosting software). SoundSlate is the last hardware sound module you will ever buy.

Pro Tools VST Coprocessor
Add processing power to your Pro Tools Rig. Play any VST with ease. Elegant integration with rackmount form factor and Controller II touchscreen. Get more PRO with your Pro Tools using SoundSlate.

All-in-One Solution
Unlike all other dedicated electronic musical instruments and workstations, Open Labs SoundSlate'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, SoundSlate does it all with ease.

Make Your Digital Audio Workstation "OPEN"
Riff is an entirely new concept in virtual instrument hosting. Written from the ground up by Open Labs, Riff encompasses over six years of live performance and studio production knowledge gathered from some of the world's top artists, engineers, composers, and producers.

Simply speaking, Riff is a multi-effect and multi-instrument rack for musicians and sound designers. It is also a VST host that runs as a standalone application.

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.

Riff allows a user to stream the ASIO or VST input signal through chains of individual VST effects so you can use your Open Labs instrument as a real-time multi-effect processor.

It enables a user to play several VST instruments at the same time. You can layer several instruments to create complex sounds. Or, users may play instruments on different MIDI channels: It turns a computer into a multi-timbral sound generator.

Own Every Sound
MimiK (optional) keyboard cloning software will clone the sounds of any MIDI equipped keyboard or hardware sound module. Put all your keyboards in SoundSlate virtual instrument player and hardware DAW.

Superior Support
Open Labs instruments are equipped with an Ethernet port, allowing access to the Internet via a broadband connection. Open Labs tech support can log-in to your system, and our online technicians can remotely view and diagnose any issue — while you are still in your own studio.
