Roland GI-20 MIDI Interface

I own one of these and find that I'm a better guitar player than I am a keyboard player. You'll notice that you can create a wide array of new ideas right out of the box. I bought this with the pickup. If you don't already own a Roland MIDI guitar or Roland MIDI Pickup then you need to get the pickup. If you're looking to enter the world of synthesis, sample-triggering or MIDI sequencing using your guitar or bass, then this is your box. The GI-20 GK-MIDI Interface detects the signal from any electric guitar or bass equipped with a GK-2A or GK-2B pickup, respectively, and lets you trigger synthesizers and samplers, or even record your playing as MIDI data. And with its built-in USB MIDI port, the GI-20 is perfect for computer-based recording setups.

Using a guitar or bass equipped with an optional GK-2A or GK-2B Divided Pickup, the GI-20 can be used to trigger virtually any MIDI-compatible synthesizer or sampler, as well as outputting your "natural" guitar sound for amplification. It has a convenient USB MIDI port that lets you quickly connect your GK-equipped guitar or bass to a variety of computer-based recording systems.

The GK-2AH is a slim divided pickup designed to fit on virtually any steel-string electric or acoustic guitar. Once mounted, this pickup sends an individual output for each string, allowing connection to various guitar synths, advanced processors and GK effects. The GK-2AH is constructed of a durable material and can be attached or detached at any time.
