As a guitarist, I've never been able to fully explore my music via a keyboard controller, and I've purchased every MIDI guitar "solution" on the market over the past few years. Every single one has been an absolute disappointment until now. As a leftie, I was unable to take advantage of the Jamstik Studio until recently, and I've finally found my holy grail for music production. This guitar is absolutely amazing, it's everything I've wished for and I feel like it's unlocked the next level in my creativity in a DAW environment.
I bought the first MIDI guitar system 35 years ago and so far no system worked to my satisfaction. Your Jamstik Studio makes the difference, I am amazed and happy! The tracking is fast and precise and no big change of playing style, which is really braking new grounds to my opinion. I tend to forget for the first time that I am playing MIDI and not audio. It is great fun to play some MIDI pads or arps together with the real guitar tone, but also just MIDI is a satisfying experience. Congratualations
I don't even know where to begin expressing how much I love this instrument. I don't think you can get any more guitar-like of a MIDI controller, because it's ACTUALLY a guitar. It's opened an entirely new world of sounds to me, I can't put it down, I can't stop finding new uses for it every time it's in my hands. EASILY one of the greatest purchases I've made in my entire life.

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.
Unlike MIDI pickups and software options, the Jamstik is equipped with dedicated onboard processors, taking any CPU load off your computer. With wired USB connection, latency ranges from 6 to 15 milliseconds.
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 or AUv3 plugin to use within a DAW.
