While we are all waiting for the update to MIDI Guitar 3, let’s take a look at another future release in the making: the JamOrigin Guitar MODS! These are instruments to be played from within the environment itself, built around the same architecture that will be at the core of the coming MIDI Guitar 3, but without the detour of dealing with MIDI. You just plug in your guitar, choose an instrument, and play. 🪗
Here are two instruments on display to begin with: Saxophone and Trombone. Moreover, you get a glimpse of the super accessible automation setup here, and also two new features; 1. the benefit of adopting the MPE standard of a pitch bend range = 48 (we can now play and record slides/bends covering the whole neck), and 2. the brand new artificial sustain addition to the dynamics section. Think of this as a virtual sustainer PU, but without any of the problems with overtones.
These are the first two in the series - much more to come!
