Play MIDI Guitar Without Extra Hardware

Jam Origin MIDI Guitar software lets you play soft synths from a standard guitar   17-Dec-13

Jam Origin tells us that MIDI Guitar is a revolutionary piece of software that converts your guitar's analog signal into MIDI, making it possible to use your standard guitar as a MIDI controller/ MIDI keyboard and play your favorite software synthesizers/samplers with your guitar. They say that MIDI Guitar is the worlds first low latency, polyphonic software solution, allowing you to play both chords and single notes with instant audio feedback.

A spokesperson had this to say, "Traditionally guitarists have had to seek out expensive and inconvenient hardware to be able to use a guitar as a MIDI controller. MIDI Guitar removes the need for any kind of specialized hardware beside a standard guitar interface to connect your guitar to your computer. Just connect your guitar and let MIDI Guitar do the rest.

MIDI Guitar comes in two variants, a standalone application that supports hosting of VST/Audio instruments and effects that be used without any additional software installed and a VST/AudioUnit variant that can be used in with your favorite Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) software.
