Possible i2M upgrade?

Post by treelemon »

I was just wondering if there is any thought on doing something like making an audio-to-MIDI note converter that would have an input for the 13-pin GK cable? This would make it easier to use any hexaphonic pickup (Roland or homemade) to turn multiple individual strings into MIDI.

I'm currently doing a Roland GK into multiple i2Ms via a signal splitter I'm getting in the mail soon!

Having a product like that would enable using any 13-pin output and modifying it into MIDI to use directly on a computer, or into pedals that would also take in MIDI signals.

I'm sure it's been thought of, but it would be nice if I didn't have to buy something like the Roland MIDI pedals to utilize their pickups...

Also, it would possibly take up less space on my pedalboard if I could merge six i2Ms into one more compact unit.

It's good to see some interest in this idea. It is certainly something we have considered, we're just not sure how many people need it -- any ideas?
