hi, i wasn't sure where to post this - but seeing as two thirds of the applications of use need a computer i thought 'stick it here'. so if your a mod please feel free to put it some where more appropriate

its a monophonic (no chord im afraid) guitar (model g2m) or bass (b2m) midi converter made by a uk company called sonuus, that you just plug your guitar lead into (no phaffing around with fitting extra pick ups or nowt daft) for only £80. the g2m model has been out for a year, but the b2m only came out at christmas (i think)

here is a guy called weiner (really lol) extolling its virtues

for £80, honestly im well impressed. im gonna get a bass one coz i genuinely think my guitar technique is just too sloppy tbh. but im gonna be slappin a 303 as soon as i do lol.


here is a link to the sonuus website (in case your too lazy to google it) so you can check it out for your self


edit: why am i laughing at his name being weiner, when i ask people to call me woody? lol

Hm, the lack of polyphony seems like a major flaw, but at the price I don't think one should moan about that. It's cool to see that it tracks pitch bends with in-between-the-cracks-notes whereas the (polyphonic) Roland GK pickups only track to perfect (semi)tones! =(

Yeah, not being able to work with chords is a huge negative.

i totally agree from a guitarists point of view, but say you want some trumpet (or anyother monophonic instrument) on your track and cant blow for toffee, barring sampling youve got to do it via midi. i dont know about you but im more expressive on a fretboard than a keyboard

listen to this guy 'play' the sax

Seriously you guys have never heard of Dave Weiner? Pretty damn good guitar player for a young guy, toured with Steve Vai for a while and has been working solo the last few years. This seems like an interesting concept for lead solo players, but otherwise it just doesn't work.

    Dangling participles are not something up with which I will put.

This statement would be true if the purpose of the device was to make guitars act like guitars, but that's really not the point. There are quite a few instruments out there that can be used creatively without playing chords, and this allows you to emulate them on your guitar. So it's an interesting concept for lead solo players or people who want a saxophone, synth, trumpet, etc. in their song but don't have one or don't know how to play one. It only doesn't work if you're trying to play a guitar or keys part.
