A Hurdy Gurdy and MIDI controller
Marcus Weseloh must have had some trouble with his Hamburg neighbors to decide to create a MIDI hurdy gurdy.
The MidiGurdy is currently a prototype, but an open beta version should be available early 2015.
The instrument is a compact electronic hurdy gurdy that communicates via MIDI with your computer and iOS device. It features a keyboard, pitch bend, crank and adjustable trompette, just like on a real instrument. You can also control the simulated string tension and crank friction.
The MidiGurdy can detect playing information, such as key timing and trompette impulse position and send them to your computer to help you improve your skills.
More info, including pricing, will be added soon to www.midigurdy.com.
