Yosemite was the last OSX version I intend to use - newer versions introduce more bloat and negative impact on Audio/MIDI performance.

How it compares to Hog or vst counterparts? Seems as the only polyphonic harmonic 'modulator' out there.

I finally got around to try MG 2 and I'm impressed with both the midi and the deep.
But  I get mushy sounds with certain intervals and chords on the deep.

Overall a good feel and sound though
I'll try it with fretless electric and fretted and fretless acoustic next.

I play Country music too, I'm just not sure which country it's from...

Somehow this software slipped under my radar.
I tried the demo yesterday after reading a review in this month's sound on sound, and was absolutely amazed. I bought it straight away!
I've been into midi guitar since the Roland gm70, and currently have a gr55, gr30 and vg99, but for guitar to midi this beats them all, both in tracking quality and latency, and even manages a hex distortion somehow. All via a standard guitar cable!
For guitar modelling I've yet to find anything to better my vg99, but as a midi converter this absolutely takes the biscuit!!
I'll be back with more once I've explored it some more.
I can only say buy it!! Really must be bargain of the decade.

Pretty much the same experience as TeeJay  - being a guitar-to-midi person since the GR700, and this really has come a long way.


Downloaded the demo and was playing my Arturia minimoog in about 2 minutes from my strat plugged into my interface way better than I would expect after 30 minutes of tweaking my Axon.  That said, practice and tweaking I can get pretty good results out of the Axon, would be interesting to see if perseverance with technique yields the same benefits with this software.  Nevertheless very usable out of the box - wouldn't hesitate to play live with this.


(not bought it yet - too much of a distraction!)


Can you reproduce the non-host mode setup described for Logic in MainStage - I do like to layer synths which doesn't seem immediately apparent in the stand alone host.  It's also a pain that I can't see a full manual online - I presume one comes with the full version?


And dare I say it, anyone tried integrating it with your VG99 - you should be able to route out an audio guitar and return the soft synth sound to the VG to be presented at the main outputs with just a USB lead?  Has anyone got their FC300 integrated?  A hold/sustain pedal?

Unable so far to find a manual as such, although there is a help built into it.
I have been looking for info on the aftertouch and a couple of other things, but it still works better with no real tweaking than my Roland gear, tweaked over years.....
If it had guitar modelling like my 99..........
Still seriously impressed, but a deep manual would definitely be a good thing...
Wish you hadn't suggested the VG99 integration, I suspect this is going to eat into my spare time hungrily  :P

I really need to check out the Mac version as I have much different results with iOS.

Running my Martin HD28 with lyric pickup into iTrack and MG2 it is of usable for slow attack pads and DADGAD saw it missing close intervals. They drop in and out.ook at the recorded midi data and it's like Morse code. I used it for pads/strings.

It's no match for the FTP tracking wise in terms of chords because of this, as has previously been mentioned on this thread.

Latency is slower than Roland and FTP on iOS but like I say I really need to give it a chance on a Mac to see what it's truly capable of.

For me the results with IOS are much better than the ones you describe and in the pc is even better.
It van sound like this if not tren there is some config problem:

1. That's not an iPad!
2. It's Tom Quayle!! He's a monster player and uber clean!!
3. It's a mono lead line - never disputed the mono tracking!
4. The polyphonic performance varies - it's not just me who's noticed it on tight interval chords - well documented earlier in the thread.
5. The latency is higher and more noticeable against FTP using ipad.

Great it's working for you - for me it's an app I don't use on iPad but I am interested in trying on Mac or PC so will download demo and see how I get on. It would be great to use a stock guitar for midi.

I will give it another go!

Most everyone get confused regarding Jam Origin MIDI Guitar application.

https://www.jamorigin.com/docs/midi-guitar-for-win-mac/f-a-q/#toggle-id-5

MIDI Guitar exists in three versions:

MIDI Guitar is the most feature packed. It comes as both as DAW plugins and standalone applications for Windows and Mac computers.
MIDI Guitar for Garageband is a Mac Store version which has only the essential features. Read more about on its product page.
http://www.jamorigin.com/products/midi-guitar-for-garageband/
MIDI Guitar for iOS is an iOS app which currently has only the essential features.
Any of our software packages is free to try with a full feature set and a one-click-download – so you can try out the different products and evaluate which one suites your needs.


DAW GUIDE
http://www.jamorigin.com/docs/daw/





They have the new "MIDI GUITAR 2"
https://www.jamorigin.com/
https://www.jamorigin.com/download/


Compared to the Win/Mac OSX version, the IOS (Ipad) version of MIDI GUITAR 2 provides a bit higher latency and fewer features

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/midi-guitar/id523095780?mt=8

MIDI Guitar 2 is finally here on iOS!
Everything is improved. Tracking in particular.
ATTENTION! old customers: Don't upgrade yet if you have old iDevices (iPad2/3 or iPhone4)

I know it lacks features but I thought the core conversion was the same?

TBH it's been a long time since I fired it up so will try again on iOS and with demo with PC
