Open Labs has introduced a companion to the popular Timbaland Special Edition MiKo, namely the new Timbaland Special Edition NeKo, an all-in-one production studio powered by Windows XP, and capable of running virtually any Windows XP compatible software including a variety of DAW software, virtual instruments (VSTi), virtual effects (VST) and other music applications.

Dressed in the same Arctic White Chassis color scheme, the Timbaland Special Edition NeKo is the perfect solution for the studio to road experience.
