Background

"Complimentary" was an instrumental song created by Mike Shinoda on Stagelight in December 2012 and released for free download on December 10th to promote the software. The song was largely built around samples of existing Linkin Park songs. Some examples are a drum fill from "In My Remains" and synth parts from "Burn It Down". On his blog, Mike wrote:

"With Stagelight now out for Windows, a number of you guys are checking it out. This week, I wanted to do something special for all our early adopters who are helping us spread the word: I made you guys a song.

This session can be downloaded and opened in Stagelight on Windows 7 or 8. It’s not an audio file and doesn’t contain any audio so (for now) only Stagelight users get to hear it.

For those of you who haven’t checked it out yet: Stagelight is a new music-making program designed by Open Labs and me. It’s the result of years of testing on stage and in the studio. With it, anyone at any level can make a great song in as little as a few minutes. It’s powerful and it’s simple, and you can buy it for only $10 HERE.

Again, thank you for being the first to check out Stagelight.

PS: I’m leaving today for Dell World in Austin; keep an eye out for footage online!"[1]

The Dell World event had a live performance by Camp Freddy featuring Mike Shinoda and Chester Bennington on December 11, 2012, and on December 13, 2012, Mike did a demonstration of the Stagelight software, where he recreated the instrumental of Linkin Park's "Burn It Down".[2]
