RG1520GK and the setup needed

Anyone played it or fiddled with one? What kind of setup do you need to get the midi out of it, ie, what extra toys does one need to buy? ANy help appreciated as I am thinking of getting one to ty out

dot-dot-dot has a RG570 moded with a hex pickups (I think Roland but not 100% certain).
You can get the Roland GR33 or VG88 midi guitar synths.

As was said you'd need either a GR series box, or you could use the GI20, which runs to any midi synth or to a computer with a Midi port, to run Reason or whatever.

I've toyed with this idea as well. My plan was to run the midi out into a Roland GR-33 into one channel of an acoustic amp while the piezo out went to the other channel of the acoustic amp. Magnetic output could go to my regular amps. Was looking more into the Godin line but they are a little hard to come by, and don't feel quite the same as the Ibanez necks...I just love them. Anyway, that would be an insanely flexible set up, any sound under the sun pretty much at your finger tips plus all the blending capabilities. Add a looper in the mix like an RC-20 and you're a one man band.

This is what interests me, i want to be able to, shall we say, use the guitar in effet as a midi keyboard running into my PC, Logic and hence EXS so i can play in instruments without having to tediously program the midi! So would the G120 process the guitar midi output signal into a proper midi recognisable stream so i could feed it into the pc, much like a midi controller keyboard?

Cheers,

james

Yes. Sends the signal from the GI 20 to the PC via USB.

This will turn your guitar into a midi controller.
