Open Labs encompasses the three key elements of creative expression: providing the integrated environment to create, empowering the creator with expressive tools, and providing a way to encourage broad collaboration, all in an “open” work environment. Some of Open Labs’ customers are Prince; Faith Hill’s producer, Jimmy Nichols; Maroon 5; and Timbaland.
Open Labs manufactures world-class musical instruments, develops custom musical and creative software, and provides unique tools for creative expression. Open Labs is the only “open system” provider of these types of devices and software, and its creative tools extend to the musical and video ecosystems most exploited by today’s social networks. The company will provide these tools for the broad collaboration the current system does not allow for, and it has unique and patent-pending ways to make all the creators and collaborators participants in the revenue models it provides.
The collaborative piece rivals the ringtone and surpasses it, because music can be sold in “stems,” tracks, multiple tracks, or “split stems,” and mixed, remixed, mashed, or looped. Open Labs provides the integrated environments for creation, expression, and collaboration. It provides hardware, software, and Internet portals to allow its users to accomplish their vision. It is unique in that respect.
