"The MIDI capability and integration make this an essential instrument for the studio of any musician that plays a bit of guitar. Even if you aren’t an amazing guitarist, playing MIDI parts on a different platform opens up so many inspiring musical ideas."
"Comparing the Studio MIDI to the guitars that normally find themselves on our review bench doesn’t really make sense. But it’s important to note that the Jamstik Studio MIDI is a brilliant piece of kit: as a standard guitar, it sounds, feels and plays great. As a MIDI device, it’s easy to use, and has some of the best tracking for a device like this we’ve ever seen."
"It gives you an option to play music that you wouldn't normally be able to play on something like a midi keyboard. And frankly, exploring all the different snyths available in various DAWs with the Studio is just downright fun."

The MIDI pickup is magnetic, so any metal strings will work just fine.
The Jamstik will automatically detect capo placement without requiring any settings changes.
A precision-mounted hex MIDI pickup sends signal to our powerful onboard processors, which perform algorithmic pitch analysis & MIDI conversion in near realtime.
With wired USB connection, latency ranges from 6 to 15 milliseconds. Unlike MIDI pickups and software options, the Jamstik is equipped with dedicated onboard processors, taking part of the CPU load off your computer.
Advanced algorithms allow us to accurately detect and translate your guitar playing nuances & articulations—including polyphonic bends, slides, hammer-ons, pull-offs, tapping, velocity, muting, palm muting, and more.
The Jamstik Studio is the first MIDI Guitar Controller to take advantage of MIDI Polyphonic Expression, allowing for an incredibly accurate translation from the analog guitar to digital MIDI.
Jamstik Creator was built from scratch to harness the MPE-enhanced performance capabilities and dynamic nuances of the Studio MIDI Guitar. It's both a utility application for customizing your Jamstik's settings, and a full hybrid synthesizer.
The Jamstik Creator software is available as a standalone application for Mac & PC, and as a VST3, AAX, or AUv3 plugin to use within a DAW.
