StringPort – ‘The First Computer Platform For Guitar’

Keith McMillen Instruments has introduced StringPort, “the first computer platform for guitar.”
The StringPort processes, converts and conveys to the computer the polyphonic audio from industry-standard hexaphonic pickups (like the GK, Graph Tek, Zeta and RMC models) through high speed USB2.
The software suite includes 24 applications including fast and accurate Analysis (for converting a performance into control data), powerful Polyphonic FX Processing (Wave Guide, PolyFuzz, Phase Vocoder, SMACK), a versatile VST FX Wall, a side of Synthesis (Classic FM and direct support for Synful synthesizer), a Notation application and MIDI Out.
KMI has written custom drivers with low latencies and all their applications take advantage of multi-threading and multiple cores. High resolution (24bit) converters and impeccable design provide greater than 92 dB SNR from analog in to analog out.
StringPort hardware and software suite retail for $995, but are on sale for $795 through July 31st.

"SoftStep
The Last Footswitch You'll Ever Need
SoftStep is a leap forward in the portability and functionality of footpedal controllers. Weighing in at just over a pound and fitting into many laptop cases, SoftStep has limitless flexibility compared to standard footswitches. Ten square sensor keys go beyond the simple on and off commands by supporting multiple transducers per key, providing five degrees of control freedom. Now each key can be used to manipulate effects, computer programs, and multimedia. SoftStep also has a four-direction navigation pedal, an alphanumeric LED display, and backlit keys. SoftStep connects to your computer through USB and contains Expansion and Expression ports. With the MIDI expansion module, SoftStep can be used without a computer. Whether used with an effects rack or popular software programs, this innovative device frees musicians from heavy footswitch pedals while expanding their control."
