Rob O'Reilly Guitars Launch Expressiv: MIDI Guitar System

Rob O'Reilly Guitars have launched their Expressiv: MIDI Guitar System via Kickstarter. Although already funded, this is an opportunity to support a guitar and synth in one convenient instrument.  

October 2014–The guitar design company are asking Kickstarter's community of backers to help support their new MIDI guitar technology in a bid to raise funds to take the working prototype to production.

The Expressiv MIDI Guitar System is 'plug and play' compatible with virtual any hardware or software MIDI device and lets guitarists record, compose, and perform music digitally while playing a regular electric guitar.

Founder of RORGuitars, Rob O'Reilly explains how the concept came about:

"We challenged ourselves to make a guitar that had real MIDI, real guitar playability and real control that would allow guitar players create digitally using the instrument they know best - their guitar.”
"After three years of development and testing we have reached the stage where we can say that we have solved this problem and produced a system that we know guitar players at all levels of ability will love to play.”
