The MIDI guitar space is heating up. We have waited over a year for Fishman to ship their Roland-killer hardware. But software wizards haven’t been sitting on their hands.They’ve been using them to code the next generation of Guitar to MIDI translation.
Sonuus is the latest to make the jump from silicon to App Store with the release of the G2M app for iPad. This is an iOS version of their G2M Universal Guitar to MIDI Converter. Check out the demo above for details.
I’ve owned a Sonuus G2M as well as an i2M Musicport. Both are impressive for fast hardware analogue audio to MIDI conversion. The i2M includes USB audio input in a compact package. The tracking and low-latency of both units make for a superb user experience.
If the G2M app comes close to the performance of their hardware devices, it should be a real winner. Check it out yourself for $1.99 (after January 2012 it goes up to $9.99) in the App Store.
