Orange OPC to be used in Guinness Book of Records attempt at CES

[CES 2011] Orange Amplifiers, the creators of the legendary Orange guitar amps are ready to break a record in the Guinness Book of Records at CES this week. The event which will be streamed live will feature the world’s fastest guitarist Tiago Della Vega and Orange’s OPC. The OPC is the world’s first musician dedicated computer. It allows users to just plug the machine in and start recording their music without any additional setup (excluding setting up your own instruments). It features two ¼” jack plugs that musicians can use to input microphone/guitar/bass recordings with the computer itself. It even contains over $1000 worth of music software for recording purposes. For audio purposes, the CPU unit itself packs a high powered speaker which delivers full range studio quality sound as well as produce vintage guitar sounds. And with a recommended price tag of $1499, it’s not out of reach, especially when you take into account what it can do. At CES 2011, Orange Amplifiers and Tiago Della Vega will attempt to break the record previously held by him – he played Flight of the Bumble Bee at 320 BPM without making any mistakes, two years ago in Brazil. We’ll see if he can surpass himself this year. Head here for more details.
