Something old, something new. In this video, I’ve perhaps not shifted focus altogether as much as perhaps tilted it, towards interesting applications for MIDI Guitar 2 (as opposed to just showcasing great plugins). I use, for instance, the Partial MPE support of the ”MIDI Guitar Minimal” app to control layer of the Sensel Morph MPE preset for Arturia Pigments here in the first clip. And I tune my guitar to the Harry Partch 43 tone (micro) tuning in this ID700 iOS app/synth, using the guitar and the (tablet-sized pressure sensor) Morph in tandem. As for another example, I took a page from the Colin Stetson playbook, and layered three instruments (wind synth, virtual sax, breath sounds) controlling them differently by breath controller assignments, but together within a playable patch.
I also have the Fretless Guitar pop up a couple of times in MIDI contexts. Not to forget special tunings: both the Elektra chord and the Farben chord tunings are featured!
I would be most interested both to hear, and to hear of any of your setups. I’m for instance not using AUM yet, and I sort of feel I don’t know what I am missing there. And there are some superslick setups I’ve seen some of you guys use, that would be really interesting to get to hear a sample from. I’m all for this open community environment where we share and learn from one another, so any questions you might have, I’m more than happy to help you with what I got, as best I can!
