Description

The You Rock Guitar GEN 2 is an affordable MIDI guitar with onboard synth sounds, USB and audio outputs and crucially a MIDI output for controlling external synthesisers. It's quite incredible that this kind of technology is available at such a low price! The fretboard is pressure sensitive and accurate enough to detect two hand tapping etc. If you've been looking for a way to revolutionise your sound look no further!

Here's what YouGuitar say about the GEN 2

The YRG is a MIDI guitar for recording, composing, and creating Tablature via MIDI. It can also be used stand-alone with its internal sounds.

This YRG marks the next evolution of the ever popular YRG-1000 by Inspired Instruments Inc., also known as YouRock Guitar. It is yet to be beat as the first fast tracking, no latency, affordable digital MIDI guitar on the market. It’s price point is unheard of, its technology is unmatched.

The YRG’s patented fingerboard technology and electronics have revolutionized the way a guitar player, other aspiring musician or DJ can create, record and play music. The YRG connects to a host of mobile devices including the popular iPad to use with GarageBand. It also connects via USB to the MAC and PC. The YRG can be used with most recording and tablature software such as Logic, Reason and Ableton to name a few. Also compatible with Legacy MIDI synthesizer devices via its 5-pin MIDI connector.

This versatile instrument never needs tuning and is backpack friendly. For beginners, or, if you enjoy games like Rocksmith and RockBand, the YRG is a perfect crossover instrument to real guitar playing. Pick yours up today!
