Orange Amps has announced that its OPC computer-in-an-amp will be used in a world record attempt at this year's CES in Las Vegas. Guitarist Tiago Della Vega will attempt to break his own speed and accuracy record on Friday January 7. The company has also taken the opportunity to release final specs and pricing for its soon-to-be-released new baby.
Tiago Alberto de Quadros, or Tiago Della Vega to his fans and friends, currently holds the Guinness World Record for the fastest error-free rendition of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov's Flight of the Bumble Bee. The talented Brazilian player managed an incredible 320bpm at EM&T, Sao Paulo, Brazil on May 7 2008, and his new record attempt at Intel's CES booth will be streamed live online at 12:20 (PST) on Friday January 7.
He'll be playing through an Orange PC, the merged computer and amp that the company announced in June 2010. Intel will be using the device to show off its second generation Core i5 processor but when the production model hits the streets in the first quarter of 2011, the OPC will feature a Core i3-540 processor running at 3.06GHz.
