Steinberg and OpenLab announce live performance solution

Steinberg North America and Open Labs LLC are pleased to announce a live performance solution that combines the power of the industry standard Steinberg VST Protocol (Virtual Studio Technology) and Open Labs Music OS live performance software. Steinberg’s HALion 4 (VST Sampler and Sound Creation System), HALion Sonic (Premier VST Workstation) and Yamaha Vintage Plug-in Collection are now easily accessible on any stage, leading the future of VST development.

First launched by Steinberg in 1996, the VST Protocol creates a professional studio and performance environment on any computer, allowing seamless integration of virtual effect processors and instruments into the VST host application. All functions of a VST effect processor or instrument are directly controllable and automatable, either with a mouse or with an external hardware controller such as Steinberg’s CMC Series and CC121 USB Controllers. VST also allows easy integration of external equipment, allowing you to put together a system tailor- made to your needs.

Open Labs Music OS 3.0 or MOS is a music creation and live performance software designed specifically to address the needs of both music creators and live performers. With over 7 years of integrated touch screen experience, MOS was developed and optimized for touch screen use; however, a touch screen is not required when installed on PC desktops and laptop

systems. Important to note, Open Labs will update Music OS to support the Mac platform in the first half of 2102.
