MIDI Guitar is a revolutionary piece of software that converts your guitars analog audio signal into a digital MIDI signal. This makes it possible to use your standard guitar exactly as you would use a MIDI keyboard or MIDI controller. You can use this to:
- play your favorite software synthesizers/samplers with your guitar, rather than a keyboard.
- record guitar notation directly in recording software (digital audio workstations).
- get a really great guitar tone: MIDI can control real guitar effects: compressors EQs, amps, etc… There are a few such effects inside MIDI Guitar and they are really in a territory of their own when it comes to guitar effects.
MIDI Guitar is the worlds first low latency, polyphonic software solution, allowing you to play both chords and single notes with instant audio feedback.
Traditionally guitarists have had to seek out expensive and inconvenient hardware to be able to use a guitar as a MIDI controller. MIDI Guitar removes the need for any kind of specialized hardware beside a standard guitar interface to connect your guitar to your computer. Just connect your guitar and let MIDI Guitar do the rest.
MIDI Guitar comes in a few variants: as standalone Windows/Mac standalone applications that can host VST/AudioUnit instruments and effects or as VST/AudioUnit plugins that can be hosted inside your favorite Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) software. There is also an app for iOS.
