Sonuus B2M Bass to MIDI Converter
A few months ago, Sonuus bought us the Guitar 2 Midi Converter - the handy, pocket sized unit that made it easier than ever to use your guitar as a solo MIDI instrument. And now, bassists can enjoy the use of a plug-and-play Bass 2 MIDI converter too! Just plug into the B2M and turn your normal bass sound into a cool synth bass, a contrabass or any other MIDI-triggered sound that you like. All this without labourious modifications or unsightly additional pickup systems!
We are used to dedicated Keyboard and Drum MIDI controllers, and now it's the turn of bassists to enjoy the benefits of MIDI. Until now it has been difficult for non-keyboard playing bassists to input MIDI data without resorting to the fiddly and unmusical computer mouse. The B2M changes this and now you can use your own guitar to input data such as Bass and String lines to a sequencer then play them back with your own choice of samples or virtual sounds.
NB: The B2M is designed for solo instrumental lines meaning it does not support polyphonic input (i.e. it will only detect solo guitar notes - not full chords). However, at this price, and this level of convenience (you don't have to set up an expensive and ugly MIDI pickup system) the B2M is great for composing, performance, transcribing, recording and more!
Bassists can enjoy a familiar interface, be creative, and get down their ideas without all the commotion of setting up a polyphonic system. Or you can simply use the B2M at a gig to get your entire range of bassline sounds from a bass guitar instead of a keyboard.
There are loads of cool things you can do with Sonnus MIDI converters - so many that we made a special feature of it! Check it out here!
