Orange’s all-in-one computer/amplifier/speaker, the OPC, was announced last year, but those who attended NAMM 2011 were the first to see the final production spec model.
At the heart of the OPC is a powerful 500GB hard drive and 4GB of RAM (upgradable to 8GB). It’s the first PC to feature an integrated audio interface and the first to have built-in high powered speakers. It comes loaded with over $1000-worth of software including AmpliTube 3, PreSonus Studio One (custom Orange addition), Acoustica Mixcraft 5, and EZdrummer Lite. There’s even an HDMI output.
In a nutshell, the OPC is trying to be a creative hub for everything the modern musician might want to do: practice; record; share tracks online; or plug in to a 42” plasma TV. It remains to be seen whether this is what the future holds, but for now at least, we salute Orange for trying to predict it.
