Learning to play musical instruments takes a lot of time. However, if you happen to be trapped at home at any time in the past two years, you may have the opportunity [Dmitry] to pick up the guitar and learn to play it. However, [Dmitry] didn’t stick to the traditional guitar, but chose to build its own digital guitar, which has various functions that neither fender nor Gibson can find.
The entity of this unique instrument is completely designed by [Dmitry] with 3D printing parts, and capacitive touch sensors are used on the guitar keyboard. These strings are also replaced by a set of six switches that can be played like an ordinary guitar and used to record when notes are played. After several prototypes, everything is connected to a custom PCB. The software aspect of the project is also impressive; It includes creating custom firmware to register all keys and transmitting information to the MIDI controller so that the guitar can communicate digitally with any MIDI enabled device.
To complete this project, [Dmitry] also added a wireless device and some other additional functions, such as an accelerometer, which can be used to enhance the sound of the guitar and program in any way he can think of. This is one of the most innovative guitars we have seen since the launch of the Noli smart guitar prototype last year, and this guitar is also moving from the prototype to the market.
