Now your guitar can be a major player in your MIDI productions!
The AXON AX 50 USB has arrived: It is the "little brother" of the extremely successful AXON AX 100 MKII ” one of the most powerful devices of its kind. The AXON AX 50 USB is based on the same technology as its "big brother," but it has additional options, such as a USB port with four additional virtual MIDI ports, which makes it ideal for state-of-the-art, computer-based recording studios.
With its 32-bit RISC processor, the guitar to MIDI controller immediately translates the vibrations from each guitar string that you strike or strum and sends information about the pitch, dynamics and tone duration to the connected MIDI sound generator. The MIDI sound generator brings your music to life using any sound you choose. You want a flute accompaniment with your guitar? How about creating fat synthesizer sounds with your bass? Or play the sax with your acoustic guitar? What about using your violin to generate choir voices in your sampler? It's all possible now!
With the Terratec AXON AX 50 USB, you can control an external instrument and up to four other software sound machines on your computer: a MIDI-OUT connector and four additional virtual MIDI ports via USB make all of this possible. We also provide you with 128 sounds based on the renowned KONTAKT Player so you'll be able to get started right away and of course, all of the sounds are multitimbral. You can divide fingerboards and strings into up to 12 play zones, making it easy to control an entire orchestra. The editor included in the package lets you make changes right on your computer.
AXON AX 50 USB controller means easy operation and flexible connection options ” ideal for all guitarists, bassists and violinists who want to integrate MIDI equipment into their computer-based studios and experience the endless sound and composition possibilities.

The Ax 50 has been a good investment, although it took some time (and firmware updates) to get there. Make sure you download the newest firmware (currently 7.28) to get the machine up and running. I play mostly fingerstyle with either a GK-3 or Ghost piezos. The piezos track somewhat better, but if you have the GK-3 you can also get some decent tracking. You need a guitar with a wide bridge, because if the strings are close to each other you?ll get some sound errors with the GK-3. The situation is attenuated with the Ghost saddles, but there?s no such thing as perfect tracking yet. During a polyphonic passage you can expect a few wrong notes.You need to take several days to set up the Ax 50, but this unit is definitely worth it. I only use it at home, to record my manuscripts and edit the MIDI files with notation software. You need to record slower to avoid wrong notes, and I get about 98% good tracking. This is much faster than entering the notes manually or with a keyboard.
