[Igor Stolarsky] plays in a band called 3’s & Sevens. We’d state he is the Guitarist however since he’s playing this hacked axe we most likely should phone call him the band’s Guitarduinist. Scroll down as well as listen to the quick demo clip of what he can do with the hardware add-ons, then inspect out his video explanation of the hardware.

There are a number of added inputs connected to the guitar itself. the most obvious is the set of colored buttons which are a shield riding on the Arduino board itself. This attaches to his computer via a USB cable where it is controlling his MaxMSP patches. They’re out of the method as well as act as something of a sample looper which he can then play along with. however look at the guitar body under his strumming hand as well as you’ll likewise see a few grey patches. These, together with one long strip on the back of the neck, are pressure sensors which he actuates while playing. The result is a level of seamless integration we don’t keep in mind seeing before. now he just needs to move the prototype to a wireless system as well as he’ll be set.

If you don’t have the skills to shred like [Igor] perhaps an automatic chording gadget will provide you a leg up.
