Jamstik Studio – MIDI Guitar that plays like a traditional Guitar, they say
Jamstik Studio is the new MIDI Guitar that plays like a traditional electric Guitar, with simultaneous audio and MIDI output.
Zivix first hit the market with their Jamstik MIDI guitar that was unique in that it used regular Guitar strings as opposed to a lot of the competition which used sensors or buttons. This gives players a much more accurate Guitar feel. The original Jamstik was tiny, probably closer to a Ukulele than a Guitar, however it did have 6-strings.
The new Jamstik Studio takes things to the next level – it’s a full 24 fret electric guitar with MIDI and audio capabilities. This is great because you can capture your Guitar signal alongside the MIDI as you play it – this allows you to focus on the playing, while still offering plenty of options to edit and tweak at a later stage.
The MIDI guitar features extensive I/O options – either send MIDI over Bluetooth, USB-C or 3.5mm TRS-MIDI jack, simultaneous to the audio output. This is also fantastic for live performances and solo artists because you have the ability to send your Guitar signal to an amp while sending note information to a sequencer or synth.
Open up the creative potential of MIDI compatibility to the world of guitarists…
“When Jamstik was founded in 2009, our goals were to educate the next generation of guitar players and open up the creative potential of MIDI compatibility to the world of guitarists,” said Matt Cannon, Jamstik’s Director of Growth.
“While we’ve made strides in both areas with our existing Jamstik portable guitar controllers, the Studio is a product we’ve wanted to launch since the beginning; and one we know many customers and partners are equally excited for,” he continued.
The Jamstik Studio has an internal battery which can be charged using the USB connection – no need for extra power cables. The headless design makes the Jamstik Studio super compact and portable. It will also ship with a dedicated VST plugin with a set of curated sounds to make the most of the Jamstik Studio.
