I will have a video demo up on youtube in a couple days.
Very Very impressive.
I talked to Larry Fishman who said
June 2012 release date and internal kit version will be available too.
From Yahoo MIDI Gropup:
"I am still at the NAMM, but let me answer to some of the questions raised
>> You'll need one of these for each guitar you have.
1.) The whole system clips on the guitar with a magnetic fixture, something
like the power connector of a MAC laptop, so changing from one guitar to the
other will be a matter of a few seconds.
2.) For a 13 pin system you need a GK-2 compatible pickup for each guitar.
It costs almost as much as the whole system here, so even if you have
separate sytems for each guitar it is much less investment than having 2 *
GK-2 + 13 pin cable + an AXON or ROLAND.
I deleted some messages, but I remember remarks like that:
>> "it looks like a toy"
The palm-size box which looks like a toy contains more than 1000 times
higher processing power than the original AXON.
>> Does it have fret, string and pick splits like the AXON?
It does not have pick splits, but fret splits and string splits are much
more flexible. While in the AXON the corners of four segments meet each
other in one common point, here two such points can be defined
independently, one for the lower splits and one for the upper. This means
that the lower and upper splits can overlap, even fully cover each other as
two layers, and the string split of the lower and higher range can be
different. This is possible because the lower and upper splits are
transmitted on separate MIDI channels, the lower on 1...6, the upper on
11...16. Burr used these features extensively in his demo.
"Like Andras said, there are layers and independent splits for each. Burr stressed that in his demo. No pick splits.
And it's not glitch free. There are still glitches, not many, but they happen. Kinda like the Axon itself, maybe a little less.
