Misa Digital Guitar cuts the strings, adds a touchscreen

Posted in Musical Instruments by Conner Flynn on January 18th, 2010

When you get rid of the strings, is it really still a guitar? We’ll leave that to the philosophers. In the meantime, take a look at just such a specimen. The Misa Digital Guitar is great looking, but somehow we don’t think it will catch on.

Then again I’m no musician. Maybe it will revolutionize music. The Misa is really just a MIDI controller that you can interface with software on your PC and you can use said software on your PC and use a normal guitar. Whatever you like.

The whole rocking with fake plastic instruments thing is getting old. So how can you put some excitement back into it? Well, you can try out Gambridge’s Z line of dual game / MIDI guitars for something different.

These are full-sized instruments with built in sound modules that also function as game controllers. And yes, they’re compatible with all major music video game titles. Pricing and availability are yet to be announced, but we will let you know.

Future guitarInstrument-mods are nothing new around here. We got your Steampunk, your equipment that measures how hard you rock, even a guitar that plays Atari games. All pretty cool.

But the Arduinocaster has a unique look that separates it from the pack. It’s an Arduino-based MIDI instrument that uses switches and LEDs to control the “strings,” and an opto reflective switch for strumming. Check it out in the video below.

See more funny videos and funny pictures at CollegeHumor.
This guy made this video to prove that he is better then you at Guitar Hero 3 using drumsticks. He has an advantage that you don’t. A custom midi controller designed to play as if you were drumming. He also obviously kicks ass playing the drums.

He’s obviously crazy. I’m pretty sure he’s animal from the Muppets, all shaved down and incognito. Amazing yes. Also amazingly nerdy. What else can you say?
