MIDI pro 2 guitar by ROR

hello people,
i have been looking for a guitar to midi solution for quite a while by now, as many if not all of you have been too.

i just read about a guitar that basically turns its frets into velocity sensitive switches which means that the latency is ultra low and the tracking is really good. it also has a couple of buttons, a joystick and an XY-pad as well as normal magnetic pickups and a piezo pickup. separate midi, USB and quarter inch output.

i just ran into this and all the videos look very good but not a lot of people seem to be aware of this product, so i thought i’d just share this with you.

the price of 3000€ is a little juicy but hey. looks like a hell of a guitar!

here is the link: Expressiv MIDI Pro by RORguitars – Rob OReilly | Expressiv MIDI Guitars

(BTW looking forward to MG3 :innocent:)

There is no doubt that this instrument is one of the guitars dedicated to a very advanced use of MIDI functions. (There are other manufacturers who have developed this kind of instrument and at similar prices). This will certainly suit a professional guitarist or bassist highly specialising in MIDI effects

However, it is necessary to count $6000 for a reliable use on stage in case a string is broken. And I don’t include in this price the purchase of the synths and/or host plugins + plugins… :thinking:

MG2 remains a very decent solution with an unbeatable quality-price ratio, and the most important for me being to the possibility to change on the fly as many guitars as you want, and with 100% free hands thanks to a custom-made MIDI pedalboard.

However it is great to to dream of a beautiful instrument… but only available in 6 to 12 months :wink:

Thanks for the info. I had never heard about this instrument. The MIDI Pro Bass is exactly what I’ve been looking for. Fret Trax can give you the same results but can be installed on your own bass for 1800 $US. The Fret Trax demo featuring Victor Wooten is awesome.
