Gearhounds, get your O-face on: Orange Amplifiers has introduced the OPC, an all-in-one computer amplifier speaker that integrates a computer with a high-end internal speaker. The OPC is a musician's toolbox with a handle, offering the capability to play, record, edit, and compute.

According to the manufacturer, the OPC represents a number of "firsts." It's the first computer of its kind that connects directly to your instrument; it's the first to have a built-in, high-powered speaker that delivers full range, high quality sounds and vintage guitar sounds; it's the first computer to have a universal input jack that lets you plug in musical instruments like guitars and keyboard or other devices like MP3 players and microphones. The OPC also has a unique cooling system that ensures that air goes in and exits only after cooling the internal computer.

The OPC has 4GB DDR2 RAM, a 500 GB hard drive, Intel chips, Windows 7 (64-bit) OS, 8 USB 2.0 ports, wi-fi, an integrated GeForce 9300 graphics card with an optional dedicated ATI 5670 512 MB card (for those who want to play a few games while playing music), and more.

Orange notes that the first models will include modeling software incorporating computer samples of vintage and current Orange amps and cabinets, as well as a free branded recording software package. Once plugged in, you can use the included software to create music or choose your guitar sound and then play, record, and hear your guitar through the computer.

Expect the OPC to be released in June, 2010. Pricing is TBA. For further details, visit
