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.
Workings of man crying out from the fires set aflame
By his blindness to see that the warmth of his being
Is promised for his seeing, his reaching so clearly

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