Orange Guitar Amp + PC Might Be The Best Looking Desktop Ever

Ever dreamed of owning a PC in an amp case? Ever dreamed of just owning an Orange guitar amplifier? In a weird way, you can solve both of those dreams. Orange Personal Computers have upgraded the Orange OP, which is basically a guitar + computer hybrid device. There's now a Core i7 option, up to 8GB of DDR3 memory, inbuilt instrument/mic amplifier and stereo JBL speakers. The company claims that it's good for making Demos or Master digital recordings, enabling users to just plug- in, play/record, multi-track/mix, and then upload straight onto the Web for the world to access.






As a Windows audio workstation, the OPC can be easily expanded with any additional hardware or software as needed. The OPC is light, portable and can also be used as a powerful computer; it measures only (h) 32cm x (w) 35cm x (d) 24cm, with prices ranging from $1125 to $1579. A new PC never looked so good.

That is so cool! Makes it so easy to plug in and record! Imagine one of these loaded up with the software from the PCAudioLabs DAW.

Very cool... though for some reason I want to say this is the half-life box :P

That's no lie.

I think that in a world where companies search desperately for a "hook", or some way to stand out from the crowd, these guys have nailed it.

This is unique in a lot of ways and it's also appealing.

So, for all of these reasons, I hereby give this Geek Bling the ~Golden Girl Award~.

Very cool, probably one of the more innovative PC/case designs I have seen in a long time. May hats off to them.

This is a very cool and unique idea! I love it.....except one thing....It has an HDD! So the low bass noises will cause the R/W head to bounce off the platters and, in time, cause major problems for the pc. What they should have done was put an SSD in the unit instead. If I did buy one, the first thing I would do is image the drive, swap out the HDD or an SSD, then reimage the SSD.

Good point, plus most guitar amps have a pretty hefty magnet on the speaker too, So I imagine that they have done something to shield the hard drive from vibration and the magnetic field of the speaker.

Yeah, they would have had to do that to make it work right,........I'll bet that it's already done though. I don't play the Guitar, but every time I look at this thing I'm impressed and I'd like to have it.

 

Pretty unrealistic,.........

But think about it from a guitar player's point of view for a moment.

This little Orange box is,...

1. A good practice Amp that is pleasing to the eye. (beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder)

2. A digital signal processor with lots of memory storage for the unique sounds that you come up with.

3. A usable PC.

4. A good track editing device for song compositions.

5. A good background musical device/metronome for small scale performances.

6. Much less expensive than buying seperate equipment that does all of these things for you.

Even though it's not a good choice for YOU doesn't mean it's FAIL. It's just not good for your purposes. Or maybe from a musician's POV, you're FAIL for not being able to use one of them properly. Big Smile
