Neal Nagaoka: Midi Guitar 64 Software Experiment



This is an experiment with a new beta software called MIDI Guitar that I just got. It doesn't require a midi pickup and converts the actual notes of a guitar into a MIDI signal. I just picked a simple progression to jam in Band In A Box to demo this using Amplitube synced with MIDI Guitar 64 software's built in Synth Brass patch and layered the two sounds in unison to improvise over. The midi tracking isn't perfect and there is a slight latency still so you can't play too fast but it's pretty good so I thought it would be a neat thing to try.

Gianluca Ferro: trans-temporal operation as precognition?

Extrasensory perception (ESP) involves reception of information not gained through the recognized physical senses but sensed with the mind. The term was adopted by Duke University psychologist J. B. Rhine to denote psychic abilities such as telepathy, clairaudience, and clairvoyance, and their trans-temporal operation as precognition or retrocognition. ESP is also sometimes referred to as a sixth sense. The term implies acquisition of information by means external to the basic limiting assumptions of science, such as that organisms can only receive information from the past to the present... I had a vision about this photo... many days ago... maybe it was ESP?

Maddie Rice: EMG Pickups, so happy to endorse this company!

EMG Pickups
Session guitarist Maddie Rice recently loaded her Parker with our 57/SAV/SAV combo and had this to say...

"As a sideman for hire/ session guitarist, versatility is where it’s at as far as my setup goes- I need to be able to whip out any sound at any time. My EMG 57 gets me everything from sparkly chorused cleans, to classic crunch and truly heavy overdrive, while switching over to my SAVs gives me that authentic strat bounce." -Maddie Rice
