StudioBLADE keyboard still king of the hill years after its release

The StudioBLADE series keyboards were designed to grow with the user. That is, it was suppose to remain cutting-edge for years or decades, something unheard of for computers. Because it was designed with so much upgradeability and power, it has withstood the test of time.

First introduced with its current power plant over 5 years ago, the StudioBLADE has not needed updating to its computer core as it is still more powerful than any other musical keyboard in the world and provides more power than anyone can possibly use for music production today.

Here is a video spotlighting the StudioBLADE Gen3 model with Victor Wong, CEO Music Computing. It’s amazing what we produced 2 years ago is still this impressive.

 

 

 

Victor Wong creates interactive shoes.

Blings was created to show what an interactive shoe could be. Blings was heavily promoted showing how it would work with an app installed on a mobile phone. However the concept can be used in a wide variety of applications.

After Blings was released to the public, Google and Adidas decided to create a technical demonstration of an interactive shoe, which was shown at SXSW in Austin, Texas, where Victor Wong resides. It made world news and launch a number of interactive shoe products by other companies.

When Tim came to visit me and we decided to design the keyboards together

My time at Open Labs (2001 – 2010)

As co-founder and CEO for Open Labs, I was lucky enough to have been able to help change the face of music forever. We helped usher in the age of computer music production and performance that is the standard today. Acting as its CEO for the first 2.5 years, I was able to help guide the company as it grew at a rapid rate.

However, having had my background based in the Apple tradition, I realized I needed to create a brand and a community around my company. Because of that, we elected a new person to become CEO so I can concentrate on product development, marketing and artist relations.

Directly from my efforts we were able to turn Open Labs into a household name for music producers in just 2 short years. At one time, at least 8 of the 10 songs found on the Billboard Top Ten were produced using our products at any time.

Producers and artists using our equipment include: Timbaland, Iil Jon, Teddy Riley, Polow Da Don, Scott Spock, Maroon 5, Korn, Prince, Faith Hill, Reba Mcentire, Madonna, Sheila E., The Crystal Method, Tommy Lee and many more.

Here are just a few people I was honored enough to have worked directly with:
