Oscillators generate sounds in real-time with algorithms for optimal sound quality at high frequencies. All waveforms have two independent parameters X and Y allowing you to adjust the timbre. Includes FM, RM, wave shaping and filtering.
  • Bus processors – Two bus processors each featuring a stereo multi-filter, distortion and LO-FI section.
  • Filter modes:

    Remember the Orange OPC Guitar Amplifier + Recording Studio Workstation – the bizarro computer + guitar amp combination that was introduced at this year’s NAMM Show?

    Music Radar got their hands on one of the Orange OPC computers and put together this first look at it.

    According to Orange, the OPC computer will be leading the way with a number of ‘Firsts’:

    • The first PC to feature an integrated audio interface enabling the user to plug in a guitar or microphone using a standard 1/4? jack plug
    • The first computer of its kind to have built-in high powered speakers which deliver full range studio quality sound as well as producing vintage guitar sounds.

    The OPC comes with the following software packages:

    • IK Multimedia Amplitube 3 including Custom Shop Orange Amps – Amp and Effects Modelling Software
    • Presonus Studio One Custom Orange Edition – DAW
    • Acoustica Mixcraft 5 – DAW
    • Toontracks EZdrummer Lite
    • Lick Library Player – Guitar learning and jamming centre
