What’s New

Stagelight 4.0 is here

Open Labs is excited to introduce Stagelight 4, the highly anticipated new version of its flagship, easy-to-use, music creation software. This new version of Stagelight features three significant enhancements including SampleVerse (an easy-to-use, powerful sampler instrument), MIDI Polyphonic Expression (MPE) with touch controls and a new platform addition with iOS support. With these enhancements, Stagelight 4.0 is the most powerful, accessible, inexpensive cross-platform Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) in the world.









Stagelight 4 includes the brand new SampleVerse, a hybrid sampler and synthesizer instrument, to bring revolutionary new sounds to the mix.  Scroll through dozens of new preset instruments or dive into its unique workflow to create new blends of samples like never before in Stagelight.


Easy Sampling and Editing

The deeper a creator dives into SampleVerse the more control they’ll find. Sample any sound with automatic pitch detection and correction. SampleVerse gives everyone the power to design and combine unique sounds on any device.

MIDI Polyphonic Expression (MPE)


Stagelight 4 adds full MPE support. MIDI Polyphonic Expression blurs the boundaries between keyboards and stringed instruments. You can now control multiple parameters (pitch bend and timbre) of every single note separately. With MPE and Stagelight, all touchscreen devices transform into expressive instruments that anyone can play.

With iOS, Stagelight opens the door to users in search of the easiest and most revolutionary way to create music with loops and instruments in 2018.
