"Latency is solid, with no major noticeable lag time, and best of all the processing power inside the system tracks things like bends and slides like you’ve been hoping for, for years. It even handles finger tapping and hammer-ons/pull offs."
"I described the original Jamstik Studio as “one of the best guitar-to-MIDI instruments I have used” and the time I have spent with it since then has only increased my appreciation of its capabilities. Several firmware updates have managed to avoid breaking anything, so it still provides cleaner, more reliable MIDI than any other pitch-to-MIDI based system I have experienced."
"What’s most remarkable to me is how smoothly and precisely Jamstik handles pitchbend. Most MIDI guitar controllers can sound sloppy – out of tune, out of time with the synth, and vibrato often sounds exaggerated. On the Jamstik, these articulations feel naturally expressive.."

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 part of the 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 MIDI Guitars utilize MPE (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.
The mobile companion app for the Jamstik MIDI guitars. Connect via Bluetooth or USB to adjust settings on the fly. Play a variety of sounds in-app and select from a large variety of scale and chord overlays to sharpen your skills and fretboard knowledge.
