The Roland GI-20 is a MIDI interface for electric guitar.<span> </span>You need to use this in tandem with a guitar or bass that has a MIDI pick up installed, as it won’t work without it.<span> </span>It has both USB and MIDI connections, as well as ¼ inch connections for a foot switch, expression pedal, and output.<span> </span>You can use this both with computer based virtual instrument and MIDI ready rack gear.<span> </span>It is powered by the power supply that comes with it…


<p class="MsoNormal">I haven’t found that setting up and using the Roland GI-20 to be hard at all.<span> </span>After installing and getting everything up and ready, which took a bit as I had to make sure that everything was all set, I haven’t had a problem since.<span> </span>I keep the MIDI guitar all set to go, so whenever I want to use it all I have to do is plug it in.<span> </span>Playing a MIDI guitar definitely takes a bit of getting used to as the tracking is way different than playing a regular guitar.<span> </span>Other than that, everything between me and the GI-20 has gone pretty smoothly.


If you’re looking for a reasonably priced MIDI guitar interface, the Roland GI-20 is probably the way to go.<span> </span>I like it over the other Roland pedals and interface because it is compact and USB based.<span> </span>It gives me access to all sorts of MIDI sounds to be played with my guitar, which is pretty awesome.<span> </span>While it isn’t always the most realistic thing to use, having it around in the studio is cool incase I want to experiment.<span> </span>Most people probably don’t need this, as it definitely isn’t a necessity, but I’ve found it to be a great tool and is very cool if you want to experiment with different possible guitar tones…
