I did a lot of research on this product before pulling the trigger. The internet contains a lot of excellent (and not so excellent ;-)) demos. I thought it might be a toy, but it?s not.

My main reason for buying it was that I wanted a way to play synths (mostly VSTs) leveraging my guitar skill. I?m very slow on keyboards. I can?t believe it?s taken so long for a reliable device like this to come out that doesn?t cost the earth.

I?ve not even listened to the internal sounds in this machine and I suspect the provided TRS cable will stay in the box. I?m not interested in the slightest, so I cannot speak for the sounds. I would imagine they would be of some use when on the road or something and you need to practice and have got space for a real guitar. (this thing come apart neatly at the neck, very handy)

Anyway, you need to do a little playing around with the sensitivity settings, which is very easy with the provided software. I also had to adjust the string tension, which is also pretty easy. Just be careful not to go too far!
Once properly set up you?ll be writing piano parts and summoning string sections and synths like keyboard players have been doing for years. Why should they have all the fun?

The fret board is surprisingly easy to get used to. It?s a rubber lattice, approximating the strings and frets.

For me it?s now become an essential tool in the studio. Basically if any of the above sounds familiar, get one.

It is nice to have guitar gear that makes it easy for you to make musical notation and tabs of your songs, riffs and music exercises. I've have used this together with GuitarPro6 and the unit delivers what it promises.

However, one word of warning for anyone thinking of purchasing this product is in order. This unit together with GP6 can't write your melody line correctly. It does recognize all the notes, bars and strings, but the time values of your melody/notes need to input by hand. Only the fourths and eights are interpreted correctly, but all the rest, like triplets and dotted notes are misinterpreted. So, this is yet light years from what has been available for midi keyboard for over a decade. It is great help though, but do not hold your hopes high, cause that's what you're in for!
