FreePlayer, a new software/hardware combo for guitarists, has been announced and is expected to be available for pre-order soon.

With FreePlayer, guitarists can control VST and MIDI effects dynamically, by motion and touch, as part of their performance.

According to the press release:
"It sounds like science fiction - a guitar that knows where it is, and responds to the motion as you play it. Or a guitar that knows where you are and responds to the motion of your hands near the strings? But with FreePlayer it's a reality, and what's more it's not just a computer boffin's plaything, but a real musician's tool - built from the ground up with the player in mind."

FreePlayer consists of a hardware attachment for the guitar and a software application that hosts VST plug-ins and controls MIDI devices. A Windows version is offered initially, with other operating systems to follow. An online community (the SoundStore) will allow users to share their sounds.

The FreePlayer hardware is described as an 'easy-fit-kit' for Strat or Les Paul-style guitars (with other models to follow) that contains various motion sensors, a touchpad (or joystick option) and buttons, which allows the player to manipulate multiple effects dynamically in real time. The software offers a musician-friendly editor, plus a stripped-down play-only version, designed for live work.

Pricing & Availability
FreePlayer will cost €399, and it is expected to be available for pre-order within the next month.
