Are the PC and music recording industries converging?

New hybrid computer from Orange points to technology shift
Publish date:

Convergence between the PC and mobile sectors is old news, but now it appears that specialist music equipment is coming to a computer near you too.

Amp manufacturer Orange is stepping into the PC market with a machine specifically targeted at those keen to get into music recording – just as Alienware make computers for gamers, for example.

Charlie Cooper, head of OCP development at Orange, spoke to PCR about the machine, commenting: “A lot of people are getting into music recording at home because computers are getting faster. But you need to know what you’re doing; you need to get the right speakers, the right audio to analogue digital converter, one that works well and one that’s got a low latency. On top of that you need to get the right software too.

“It makes sense to have a machine that’s more relevant to what musicians do.“
