Using a guitar as a synth trigger

Post by rox » Tue Nov 09, 2004 3:16 am

Is it possible(yeah, I'm a newbie to synths)? I've been getting addict to synths(mostly because of GH), and I'm getting envy of you lucky keyboard players who can do so many different and awesome sounds! :mrgreen:

Maybe connecting a GK-2A pickup to a synth?

I dream of playing a Moog on my guitar :cackle:

No problem!! Get a good MIDI guitar setup. Hook it up to a decent pc. Then run this on the pc:

Wow, great link, Fred!!!

I'm already downloading the demo and I'll try some stuff with my MIDI on my very-slow-PC(in the case the Moog V accepts MIDI files as input). I still can't afford a MIDI setup, but I will do a little search on them to see what I can find!

Thanks!!!!!! :mrgreen:

Im mad! :evil:

My brand new PC from dell does NOT have a joystick/MIDI input!! I dont wanna mess the warranty up by instealling a different sound card though.

Lania, I know i've heard of USB boxes that will act as a MIDI input, but won't the delay be ever WORSE? HELP!!!! :help:

although I could just continue to use my OLD pc...

An M-audio MIDISPORT 1x1 interface is cheap- like under $50 and won't lag unless your computer is realllllly slow.

I've had the MiniMoog V running on a 900Mhz pc and it wasn't too good. 1.8 Ghz is fine, especially if you have a fast graphics card.


Here's the catch- it's best to have a ASIO compliant sound card- M-Audio Delta 24/96 goes for about $100, has a MIDI interface on it and sounds good.

the upper level Zeta violins come so that you can use each string as a midi controller...

I think you mean Geek to English.

nah, this doesn't really qualify for the Geek to English dictionary, it has its own dictionary.
