A new device which presentation video has become viral. This is a simply pad set-up in the body of a acoustic guitar to generate sound plugged to any MIDI device control.
Listening to a concert with the same unnatural MIDI library sounds can get into the nerves of a professional audience
That makes me wonder the usefulness of this kind of gear. Obviously it seems as an interesting toy to play with. Funny sounds with our two hands as we play a wide range of electronic sounds.
This is not the first attempt in the introduction of MIDI devices into the world of the strings. Matt Bellamy of Muse uses a lot of MIDI controls attached to his Manson guitars to recreate crazy effects.
Although this could be a interesting resource to give a particular touch in a few moments, I guess that listening to a concert with the same unnatural MIDI library sounds can get into the nerves of a professional audience. Sincerely, I prefer to take my FX processor and create complex sound bases in the vintage old school of pedals from different sources. Yes, I know…my processor is complety digital. But at least, I don´t lie anybody. They imitate original sounds from original amps and pedals. And they are playable at all.
