Misa Digital Guitar… You-sa Don’t Need Strings!

Misa presents the Misa Digital Guitar which is a MIDI controller with a huge touchpad instead of guitar strings. The touchpad allows the player to control sounds with the right hand, while the left hand plays notes on the 24 frets neck.

What I do like about this instrument is the totally minimalistic design while it still looks like a guitar. I find this kinda cool! The second thing that sounds great about the Misa guitar is that  the software is open source. That means that developpers will be allowed to modify it in order to improve the digital guitar sound, and why not create new functions.

  1. Ha bin voilà enfin un truc potable pour jouer à Guitar Hero 😉

  2. Hum… dans le même “esprit” il y a la EZ-EG de Yamaha. Mais je crois que c’est plus un outil d’apprentissage que cette digital guitar. Je sais pas trop quoi en penser, ça me rappelle mes essais infructueux de greffer un Kaos Pad sur ma guitare !

  3. @vleb: Trop complexe pour guitar hero 🙂

    @guitar school garden: Je pense que c’est légèrement différent de la EZ-EG qui reste dans l’esprit guitare d’apprentissage. La Misa Digital tend plus vers un Kaos Pad comme tu le soulignes (je pense que le pavé tactile ne fait rien de plus que tout ces synthés aléatoires type Kaos Pad) associé à la possibilité de faire des notes/accords au manche. Une sorte de synthé aléatoire duquel tu enlèves la partie aléatoire de génération des notes… Donc plus proche des guitares que joue Matt Bellamy par exemple, mais sans les cordes.
