Get a guitar synth working
with Rock Band 3.
In my ideal world, mixing games and music would result in music games that use real instruments. Harmonix’s Rock Band series is
the closest mainstream realization of this lofty
ideal, except for one major issue. I couldn’t plug
in my guitar and play pro guitar mode songs
out of the box.
Now, before you think this is an impossible
task, one important fact should be noted. I play
a guitar synthesizer. What this means is my
guitar has a hexaphonic pickup that reads and
processes every string’s signal individually and
connects with a 13-pin cable to a guitar processor
with midi out. This means my signal is already
digital and, therefore, does not require any
additional A/D algorithms in my software.
