MIDI can be a tough beast to conquer especially with limited input methods. Expand those input methods to include acoustic or electric guitars and basses with the Axon AX 100 from TerraTec. With an advanced early-recognition system, this rack-mount unit recognizes and evaluates the string impulses as soon as they are plucked and converts them into values including pitch, dynamics, and length.
The 32-bit RISC processor makes all these calculations a breeze, leaving you with true separate MIDI tracks for each string. This is a great alternative for guitarists who are uncomfortable on the keyboard, or just want the versatility of the guitar when laying down melodies and solos.
This unit lets you easily switch sounds for your guitar. With over 500 internal sounds, 10 drum kits, and an SFX kit the possibilities are endless. You can even use the Axon AX 100 as a trigger for external devices, samplers, and synthesizers. This means you can turn your guitar into a full synthesizer, an electric piano, or a guitar multitimbral. You can even split the fretboard into different instruments!
You will need a bass pickup
as well as a cable to use the AXON mkII.
