A MIDI controller for acoustic guitars
The idea comes from Berlin musician Robin Sukroso and will soon give you the ability to get electronic sounds and effects on your acoustic guitar.
The ACPAD project is a 2mm thick wireless MIDI interface equipped with a rechargeable battery that fixes on the top of your acoustic guitar just like a pickguard. It features multiple velocity sensitive assignable pads to trigger electronic sounds and effects, as well as live loopers. With the ACPAD, you can blend acoustic and electronic sounds without leaving your hands off your guitar.
The ACPAD communicates with your DAW (Ableton Live, among others) via USB or a wiresless connection with a vey low latency.
The designer, who worked with IIT Bombay, India, says that he will offer several textures and finishes.
The ACPAD project should debut on Kickstarter soon, you can follow the project at acpad.com.
