No. The amps will just run Windows XP on them with modeling software installed.



whats the point in that? lugging around huge amps when you can just take a laptop and plug it in the pa!

So you think we'll go from single-purpose computers who alter the signal from the input, then send it out to speakers, to PCs, running all hte other crap, who will essentially do the same thing. Pointless much?

I doubt a laptop will have good quality sound through a pa system versus a nice tube amp head with some cabinets.

in a recording point of view, the signal will be altered by sequencing and recording on a pc so eitherway you have to go through a pc

i use a laptop for live music every weekend. as long as you have a decent soundcard

People today are in the market for vintage gear for "that sound", so I forsee that happening with new gear today. No sound in the future will be quite like it, and maybe there will be reissues of new gear today like we have reissues of older gear now.

its a good idea actually because i use top range piano drum vocal etc stuff and a tube would really make it near perfect.

Most definitely, I agree.

If I knew anything about **** like that I'd do it
But that's a little bit beyond my technical knowledge.

I dont really think this new tech will really surpass tubes unless there is a major breakthrough in tech. Also nothing is cooler than going on stage with a stack behind you. NOTHING

I read that when RECORDED, digital stuff can sound almost dead on.
But LIVE, a real amps blows EVERYTHING else out of the water.
As confirmed by a magazine somewhere (possibly guitarist magazine is where I read it) - who did a side by side test, and found the above to be true.

Nothing beats a nice tube amp live. Fact.
