MIDI Guitar is the world’s first app to transcribe guitar playing into MIDI in real-time, with latency and accuracy comparable to expensive and inconvenient hardware MIDI guitar solutions. Play any synth or virtual instrument with your trusted old guitar, or record tablature by playing it.
MIDI guitar is 8 years under development and based upon new advances in polyphonic pitch detection and prediction technology. It can accurately recognize guitar playing and articulation with very low latency and without spurious hits. The technology has been tested by thousands of beta testers.

ATTENTION! old customers: Please “Restore” your old purchase in the built-in shop.
MIDI Guitar uses Virtual MIDI to contorl other iOS synth apps or Garageband. It can also use WIFI-MIDI to communicate with Mac or PC digital audio workstations in a frictionless setup. Cable based MIDI to control hardware synths or connect to DAWs with lowest possible latency.
In order to use MIDI Guitar you need a iPhone 5, iPad 4, iPod 6 or later. You also need a guitar interface for best results. We recommend a digital interface (using the lightning connector) over analog (via headphone jack), preferably with input gain control. Using an acoustic guitar with the built in microphone works for some purposes but is not optimal.
The free version will interrupt now and then, asking you to buy an in-app purchase. There are two in-app purchases. The first one gives you the full guitar rig and unlocks everything in the app EXCEPT the possibility to play external synths. For that you need the second in-app purchase, in addition.
