What now my love (guitar synth)

+ 14
It may sound like a keyboard, but the lead part is played on a regular electric guitar into a guitar to MIDI converter and then into a Saturn Synth.

What midi converter is that to go from guitar to midi?

An I2M

Must be quite hard to play with properly? :)

You have to work hard to play each note at a time as it is a not polyphonic, so you can't afford to let other strings ring which would yield false conversions. I found that it responded quite well to string bends and finger vibrato though. You do however get a lot more scope to controlling the synth with a guitar than you get with a regular keyboard. You soon get used to working around the ideosynchrocies of midi conversion as you play a few times.

I have the nostalgy of my GR50 :) I'd never bought a midi converter since, I should to!
Well done Paul, you really play the sound instead of playing just the guitar

Yes you got to work at it quite hard so that you don't get false conversions especially when as in this one I enabled the pitch slide mode. Still work in progress though trying to get the technique sorted but I did manage to play it raw without any post production editing. Hope you have fun also. If you need any advice re settings etc, just ask.

Very pleasantly surprised how that Saturn sound meshes with the electromagnetic Hammond tonewheel, old and new, great combination

Thanks Lenny.Super drumming as well. I tried to bring up the drums a bit more in the mix as they seemed to be a bit low on the previous mix.
