Music Tools for All: Open Labs and LINKIN PARK, Now on BitTorrent

Download Linkin Park: StageLight on BitTorrent.

We all want to grow up to be rockstars. That’s actually a statistical reality. There’s been a 510% increase in independent musicians over the course of the last decade. What you write in your room, practice all night, put out there on stage: it’s easier than ever to get it in the hands of potential fans. The tools to grow your audience are easily accessible. The tools to grow as an artist — from mentorship to equipment — aren’t. Music software is complicated and expensive. If you want to start building a sound, it’s going to cost you.

From the outset, our vision for StageLight was to create powerful Windows-based music software that is enjoyable for, and accessible to, the widest possible audience, from beginner, to pro.

We think releasing StageLight through an official, legitimate BitTorrent download is a way to thank fans; one that’s consistent with the movement of our culture.

Mike Shinoda, Linkin Park

We think that emerging artists should have more, and more accessible options. So we’re partnering with LINKIN PARK and Open Labs to give the Internet’s musicians tools to make amazing. In this BitTorrent Bundle, sample Open Labs’ StageLight music software, gratis. Then, enter your email to unlock more ways to build your sound: the StageLight: LINKIN PARK Edition, featuring patches from the band’s library, plus nine tutorials, an interview with Mike Shinoda, and an exclusive 10% discount on SoundSlate Pro equipment.

Our focus as a company is to make music creation accessible to all

Historically, the greatest obstacles have been price, and the amount of time required to become proficient on music software. StageLight removes both barriers; providing musicians with an inexpensive, easy-to-use app. Our goal is to enable users to create songs in ten minutes or less.

About BitTorrent Bundle

The BitTorrent Bundle is an Alpha project, made with and for the web’s creative community. Our mission is to help artists connect directly with fans, inside the content they share.
Each BitTorrent Bundle, like the one created in partnership with LINKIN PARK and Open Labs, allows artists to distribute content to 170 million BitTorrent users. And each Bundle comes with a key. Fans can unlock artist content with an email address, or a donation. The idea is to make each song a storefront; and each file more valuable, each time it’s shared. Got ideas for the next BitTorrent Bundle? Hit us up.

    Stagelight is wonderful software. I was skeptical about the software due to the price, in the past I’ve used software that cost 100% more; Record by Propellerhead and Ableton Live. I found both of those software pieces to be cumbersome with a lot of hidden menus and/or I had to go out and find training videos on how to do simple things.

    After using StageLight for a few minutes I was sold, the menus made my work flow and everything clicked together. Also, if I had any questionings regarding on how to do something, HANDS ON training comes with the software!!! With StageLight I can now get on with my recording instead of trying to learn complex software.

    Bottom line, this software will allow you to do technical tasks without learning complex software.

    Maybe one day they’ll come out with GNU/Linux version 🙂

    I first heard about Stagelight from a friend. He told me that Dell has a laptop that bundles this software along with some Linkin Park sounds. I’m an LP fan and would have quickly bought that laptop if I had the cash that time but I forgot about that after a few days. Years later I bought a new laptop (a Lenovo), it has a free trial version of Stagelight pre installed. I tried the software and found myself getting more and more interested in making music. The trial expired so I went to the site to check out the price.

    For only $10 you will get a license, now that caught my attention so I bought the LP edition ($14.99). I then found out it was the same software I heard of years ago.

    There are a lot of great things about Stagelight. The interface is not intimidating unlike other software like FL studio. The built-in tutorials are very much helpful for beginners. They are quick, concise, and will get you on your feet. The software is optimized for touch screen laptops which is good for people with touch screens but for people without that feature such as I, it is still great because touch screen software = big buttons. Seeing big buttons is relaxing unlike seeing a lot of small ones – that’s stressful.

    The program comes with enough effects and instruments which have easy to understand controls to help anyone quickly make music. Plus, you can add VST plugins which expands what you can do with it since you can download free VST instruments and effects and use it with Stagelight.

    Overall, the software is great: both beginners and advanced musicians will benefit a lot from this program.
