Best Midi Guitar I've Used So Far

Overall, I had a great experience with this guitar. Great response and plays great. The guitar is built solid. Pretty much everything I was expecting out of it I got. A couple of criticisms though. I'd really like the manual to be better. I shouldn't have to go to the website to learn how to change strings, intonation or to learn what all the Hex keys I was given are for!. All this should've been in the instruction manual. I wouldn't mind even just getting a link to a complete instruction manual PDF where I can print it out myself. The black plastic cover on the back covering the electronics is very flimsy, It looks like it was hand cut. A nice solid metal cover should be here, good for shielding too. Finally it would be great to have a way to change the Program Control message directly from the guitar or offer a small MIDI module to allow me to do it. This last one is just my wishful thinking, but the first 2 criticisms should definitely be addressed.

FAQ

Is the new Studio MIDI Guitar available left-handed?

Yep! Make sure to use the "Handedness" dropdown menu to select the Left-Handed model when you check out!

Is it working on pitch recognition or contact sensors?

We are using a special MIDI pickup for pitch recognition paired with our own unique onboard algorithmic processing to ensure this job is done as quickly and accurately as possible—all while retaining genuine guitar playability.

How long does pitch conversion take? Can you share latency numbers?

The time it takes the pitch conversion to process the information into MIDI data over USB or TRS averages to 10ms. The typical range is from 6ms-15ms. The final amount of latency will vary depending on the hardware specifications and task management of the paired device. Other measures can be taken to adjust latency by using the buffer rate settings of your DAW.

Are there onboard sounds?

No, there are no onboard sounds or effects built-in to the guitar. Just like a lot of MIDI keyboards, you'll have to connect your Jamstik to a device (smartphone, tablet, laptop/desktop computer) running either our software or third-party software to generate the sound. There is also a standard 1/4" guitar output, so you can utilizes amps, pedals, and interfaces as usual.

Can it be used for tabbing with software like Guitar Pro?

The Studio MIDI Guitar is compatible with any apps and DAWs that accept MIDI-input. It works great for scoring in Guitar Pro by entering notes step by step, however, you will need to add things like hammer-on, slides, bends & other articulations manually after the note information has been entered since the software does not currently support real-time MIDI implementation.

Will it be able to transpose MIDI to different octaves or tunings?

In general, whatever physical tuning the guitar is at will dictate the MIDI pitch, so you can set any tuning you like. However, at very low tunings there may be some performance degradation. With 24 frets available, there shouldn't be a great need to octave up or down, but you can always play in standard tuning and transpose the MIDI data in your DAW.

Will the software require a DAW?

While the Studio MIDI guitar will work right out of the box with all MIDI-capable DAWs and plugins, the guitar does not require a DAW. The compatible Jamstik VST/AU Plugin can run as a standalone app on Mac and Windows and includes a curated library of specifically designed sounds for the Studio guitar. 

Does it utilize MPE (MIDI Polyphonic Expression?

Yep, it's sending pitch bend/CC messages on multiple channels.

Do you have to use special strings?

Any metal strings will work just fine—The MIDI pickup is magnetic, so the guitar requires you to use metal strings rather than nylon. We'd recommend following standard .010–.046 gauges, but slightly below or above this range should be fine, though may require some sensitivity adjustments.

Can I use a Bluetooth speaker or wireless headphones?

No, you'll want to use a wired connection (aux cord) instead of a Bluetooth speaker or wireless headphones to avoid unwanted latency.

Are there any Duties, Taxes, or VAT included in the pricing?

No, every country, state, province, and city has different rules—making it impossible to calculate and pay accurately. All Duties, VAT, or any taxes are the responsibility of the customer.
