MIDI Guitar is the World’s first app to transcribe guitar playing into MIDI in real-time, with latency and accuracy comparable to expensive and inconvenient hardware MIDI guitar solutions.

MIDI Guitar is over 10 years in development(!) and based upon state-of-the-art polyphonic pitch detection and –prediction technology that can accurately recognize guitar playing and -articulation with very low latency and without spurious hits. The technology has been validated by thousands of guitarists over the years.

MIDI Guitar use Virtual MIDI to drive other iOS synth apps or Garageband, and it can host AudioUnit synths and effects.

You need a guitar interface for best results. We recommend a digital interface (using the lightning connector) over analog (via headphone jack), preferably with input gain control. Using an acoustic guitar with the built in microphone works for some purposes but is not optimal.

The free version will interrupt every few minutes, asking you to buy an in-app purchase.

If you have problems please refer to the built-in interactive help system, browse our website: or email our support (via the contact form on our website).

Pas mal !

[edit] la dernière mise à jour a pas mal amélioré le tracking, les ghost notes se faisant beaucoup plus rares. L’interface est revue, bien plus claire et avec pas mal de nouvelles possibilités. Une cinquième étoile ben méritée !

Transformer sa guitare en synthé, c’est possible et ça marche plutôt bien. Je dis plutôt parce que même si le tracking fonctionne bien, avec une faible latence, les ghost notes arrivent rapidement. Il faudra donc adapter son jeu en conséquence, une minuscule erreur dans le placement des doigts ou dans les attaques s’entendra immédiatement. On peut envoyer le signal midi vers d’autres applis, ce qui rend les possibilités infinies. Rapport qualité/prix imbattable ! Vivement une version pour basse !

Incroyablement bon!!!

Certes, pas aussi versatile qu’un gr55 par exemple mais c’est un logiciel, le prix est ridicule comparé à du hardware et franchement, avec juste une entrée en jack guitare avoir cette qualité et ce tracking!!! C’est bluffant!!!
Bravo aux développeurs, franchement. Et la dernière mise à jour la rendu encore plus clair et facile d’accès.
