MIDI Guitar & MIDI Bass
FOR WINDOWS & MAC
MIDI Guitar turns any guitar into a true polyphonic MIDI Guitar, with latency and accuracy comparable to expensive and inconvenient hardware MIDI-Guitar solutions. This is achieved by connecting your guitar to your computer and letting MIDI Guitar use its polyphonic (multi-note) pitch detection algorithm to convert your guitars signal to MIDI that can be used to play a soft synth or virtual instrument or as a plugin in your Digital Audio Workstation
MIDI Guitar is available as both a VST/Audio Unit plugin, but also a standalone application that can transfer MIDI to your Digital Audio Workstation using Virtual MIDI on Mac OS X and a virtual MIDI cable driver on Windows.
The free trial of MIDI Guitar allows you to evaluate the recognition technology without any interruptions when using the Test Piano and with interruptions when hosting plugins or using MIDI output.

Recommended DAW settings
Its recommended you run your DAW at 44100Hz using 128 or 256 samples pr audio buffer. Its important to understand that running at too high samplerates will cause latency and unresponsive tracking.
MIDI Guitar should work fine at high samplerates as well (88.2K, 96K, 192K, etc..), but it will cause additional CPU load and have no quality benefits as for MG concerned.
Processing old recordings
MIDI Guitar will generally process anyting on a track in a DAW, and this can be used to process old recordings in you DAW, in the same was as it can be used on live tracks, as long as those tracks are dry guitar recordings.
This means you can convert dry guitar audio recordings to MIDI, and have endless creative use cases. For inspiration please see this video:
