MIDI and guitar – two different worlds until now. With the Terratec AXON AX 100 MKII Controller, the technical problems involved in connecting electric or acoustic guitars and basses to the MIDIfied recording studio world are finally a thing of the past.The ultra-fast guitar-to-MIDI controller in a single-unit rack mount has an early-recognition system that evaluates the impulses from the strings as soon as they are picked and converts them into values for pitch, dynamics and length. A 32-bit RISC processor makes it possible, opening up a whole new world of music to the guitarist.Never again will you have to change guitars to produce a different sound – just switch the MIDI channel.
