Due to overwhelming response at the recent NAMM (International Music Products Association) show, Open Labs has accelerated efforts in production of the OpenSynth eKo in order to better meet demand.

As a result, Open Labs has initiated a domestic pre-order program to deliver units to dealers and end users who have expressed interest in securing an eKo from the first production run.

To commemorate the launch of the eKo workstation, the first 1,000 units are earmarked to be limited Signature Series models. Each Signature eKo will include a hand-signed, individually numbered chassis in addition to a certification of authenticity, and special commemorative items. Open Labs first introduced the OpenSynth eKo, a true open platform music workstation at the winter NAMM show as an industry rollout. At the show, Open Labs gathered and analysed feedback to refine the features and design specifications for the production models now available for pre-order.

Starting at $1995, the eKo is now available direct at www.openlabs.com or through authorized dealers who can also be found on the website. Custom configurations as well as pre-configured models are available for domestic customers. Open Labs will initiate the international launch of the eKo at the Frankfurt Musikmesse on March 5, 2003, where international sales and distribution will commence. "While attending the NAMM show we were finally able to see our products in the hands of so many talented artists and industry alumni and the overwhelming excitement simply pushed us to work harder to make the eKo available to them", said Open Labs CEO Victor Wong. Shipments of the eKo are scheduled to commence in the second quarter of 2003.
