    I didn't see any other posts about this with a quick search.

    It's still beta & monophonic, but it looks promising based on the results of their midi-guitar. I'm going to give it a try tomorrow when I have more time. Just thought I'd share with the TB world because I know this is something that a lot of us have wanted in different capacities.

    Here's the Guitar version. Pretty neat IMO.

  4. I ended up trying it back when I first made this post. Definitely needs a lot of work. Barely useable.

    Yup, I gave the beta test a try. Definitely feels like it's still in the Alpha stages.

    I have both the bass and guitar versions. It is impressive, especially the bass version considering it is a beta. They both perform comparable to my Yamaha G50 with a Roland GK3B. The guitar version tracks chords better than my hardware setup. The major drawback to both of them is they are processor intensive. I may have to switch to SSDs and Thunderbolt in order to really get them usable. But they are both very promising. I could see a bigger company buying Jam Origin and making this a feature of their DAW. Seems like something Apple would do.

    A bit of Dead Can Dance there. I like this. And the ubiquitous Game of Thrones, of course.

    Here is a video of me playing with MidiBass at an open mic. Please excuse the singer. It is an open mic. It tracks pretty good.

    I presume that if you play high enough up the neck then MIDIGuitar and chords are an option. Since I downloaded the demos I can check this later.

    I play MidiGuitar with my bass. The chords track decent. Sometimes it will miss a note in the chord. But it seems to get the notes that play right.

    In the video you were playing well up the neck. Was that MIDI guitar? I presume MIDI guitar doesn't track the low end directly (except you could add a MIDI transpose in the chain).

    That was actualły MidiBass. I just have the notes transposed up. I never adjusted it from when I was using the synth and electric sounds together. I guess I could fix that. Lol

    There is a new beta version for bass available, supposedly with improved tracking. I just downloaded it but haven't had the chance to test it yet, need to drag my laptop and interface down to the rehearsal space.

    Anyone using it already?

    I have it but haven't had the chance to use it. I will probably get to it some time Monday. I wish they had been able to make it polyphonic though. I really want to play chords. But I guess I can just use MidiGuitar if I must.

    Ah - maybe back to double necks too... maybe Geddy could get behind that :) But I guess the guitar product will track up the neck as you've done before.

    Chords would be good, not least because a little extra triggering of a note would be better than losing an existing one so the implied tracking benefits would be good. I will have to experiment more, and with the Yamaha G50/B1D combo I have (does cords but I suspect my tracking woes are pickup height plus a bad 13 core cord).
