Linkin Park have teamed up with Open Labs and Dell to create one-of-a-kind music software, which offers a compelling and affordable solution for professional musicians to live out their dreams. The product spent years in the testing phases. Now, MUSIC OS (Linkin Park Edition) makes it easier for musicians to create, organize, perform and share the music they make. The band worked closely with the Music OS team to craft the current and future software product, which will take advantage of new features in Microsoft's Windows 8 launch in October.
"I would recommend Music OS to any music professional," said vocaslist Mike Shinoda. "For a touring musician, it's the perfect tool for creating, organizing and performing live." The band is providing a robust library of sounds, loops and kits, allowing users to create their own songs using signature sounds created by the band themselves. How generous of them.
