NEW DEMO OF OPTICAL PICKUP MIDI GUITAR

Fast response time is the key word here. Magnetic pickups, that started the midi guitar evaluation, has given a challenge to improve midi response time. Other mechanical pickups have been also successful, but the Elephant in the room has to be 'response time.' This has been limited by many factors within each pickup and all of which comes down to, how fast the fundamental of the vibrating string can be recognized by the trigger circuits for midi. Hoag Optical Pickups answers that need by greatly expanding the frequency of the pickup. The Hoag Optical Pickup is responsive from a few Hertz to well over Humane hearing and is quite evident in the sound file. Please listen to it and give your opinion. Hear at www.opticalguitars.com
Thanks, Ron Hoag
