Introducing the Studio MIDI Guitar from Jamstik

Introducing the Studio MIDI Guitar from Jamstik

July 18, 2019

Guitarists and piano players have an equal appetite for music production, but guitar players have been left wanting due to previous technological barriers in the digital guitar market. We're here to change that. We've been leaders in innovating and modernizing the MIDI Guitar market, and today we're sharing plans to expand our product offerings with the Studio —a MIDI-capable, DAW compatible electric guitar.

Jamstik Studio MIDI Guitar

When Jamstik was founded in 2009, our goals were to educate the next generation of guitar players and open up the creative potential of MIDI compatibility to the world of guitarists. While we've made strides in both areas with our existing Jamstik portable guitar controllers, the Studio is a product we've wanted to launch since the beginning; and one we know many customers and partners are equally excited for.

The Jamstik Studio edition has 24 frets with standard 25.5" scale-length, but its headless design and minimal body puts it at about 3/4 the size of a standard electric—making it studio and travel-friendly. The Studio will be the first contained MIDI guitar solution available for a mass-market audience.

The Studio MIDI Guitar includes the following features:

  • Dual Electric-MIDI Capabilities: Record audio, track MIDI, or do both simultaneously.

  • Analog Audio: Includes standard 1/4'' to plug into amps, pedals, and interfaces as usual.

  • Versatile I/O Ports For MIDI Processing & Charging:

    • USB C for MIDI Out & Charging

    • 3.5mm TRS-MIDI Out option

    • Bluetooth Wireless Connectivity for BLE-MIDI In/Out

  • DAW Compatible: Works out of the box with all MIDI capable DAWs and plugins.

  • Dedicated VST: Jamstik will provide a custom-built VST which will include a curated library of specifically designed sounds for the Studio guitar (also compatible with previous Jamstik models).

    Product Backstory: The Studio full-size MIDI guitar has always been a dream of the team of developers at Jamstik. Having recently completed a crowdfunding campaign for the Jamstik 7 and Jamstik 12, advances in digital signal processing gave the team a choice: press on with the 12 fret version as designed, or move the technology into a truly powerful, full-size instrument. The decision was made to move ahead with the time-honored full guitar format. All Jamstik 12 backers will be receiving the upgraded Studio model upon release.

Pre-order will be available soon—join the email waitlist below to reserve your spot!
