Hello, I lurk along these forums often and I know that this topic has been brought up a couple times, but it always seems hazy as to what is the best option on the market for MIDI guitars/MIDI guitar converters.
To be honest, I really don't have the money to be throwing down 1k on the full Roland setup. For a while I was ignorant and I thought that all I needed was their GK3 pickup until I realized that I also needed a "GK compatible device." Pshh. Once I add their GK compatible device, I will be spending a lot more than I initially planned...Plus,I'm gonna be putting that money towards an AxeFX first.
There was also a cheaper alternative being the you rock guitar, but there was a review on this forum that was not so positive, which had steered me away from that product.
All I want is to use a guitar to track MIDI on my computer.
There is also an alternative, for monophonic tracking, which is sonuus products. However, I recently came across forums like this KVR: Monophonic Guitar to MIDI converter tryout where some people are working on creating VST monophonic guitar converters. I haven't tried it yet, but considering the fact that this might be decent for the price (free), I might not even consider the Sonuus G2M.
So it comes down to this...Is there any CHEAP way to get decent polyphonic tracking without throwing down $900?
