G2M — Universal Guitar to MIDI Converter VERSION 2

Peterson Strobe Tuners - Premier G2M Review
The new G2M™ "V2" has even more robust note tracking and tracks 3x faster than the original G2M™, features a wider note detection range and includes a new chromatic mode. All whilst preserving the trademark plug-and-play usability of the original.

The G2M™ is a simple-to-use, highly effective, guitar-to-MIDI converter. It is “Universal” because it doesn't need a special pick-up mounted on your guitar, but instead simply connects to your guitar like any other effects pedal or tuner.

Designed to give accurate triggering, with low-latency, it is a true plug-and-play solution for monophonic MIDI guitar. It can be used to sequence bass lines and guitar solos add an edge to your live performances — it opens up many creative possibilities. No modifications are required to your guitar; no special pickups to install; and nothing needs to be “stuck” onto your instrument. It works with all electric guitars.

Favored Nations recording artist Dave Weiner (G3, Steve Vai band etc.) demontrates the Sonuus G2M guitar to Midi converter. He also posts instructional videos, called the Riff of the Week, every Wednesday on Youtube, iTunes and his own website.

Robust Performance
Research has shown us that the most important aspect for pitch-to-MIDI conversion is reliable and reproducible triggering of notes. While low-latency is important, robust triggering is the key to usability — you can easily adapt to some latency, but you cannot adapt to random, spurious notes.

By virtue of the unique, inherently robust technology used in the G2M™ you will be able to reliably generate accurate MIDI quickly and easily. Notes are generated exactly as played, and the nuances of your performance are captured with fast, accurate pitch-bend data.

Peterson Strobe Tuners - G2M Video Demo

Make your guitar sound like a synthesizer! Dan Sindel demonstrates how to use the Sonuus G2M Guitar-to-MIDI converter. The Sonuus G2M is a simple plug and play guitar-to-MIDI converter. No extra pickups, no hardware changes to your guitar, just plug in and play your favorite MIDI patches right from your electric guitar.

Improves Playing Technique
For optimal MIDI conversion, your guitar playing needs to be clean and accurate. Accidental notes, resonating open strings and other sounds can often be converted into undesired MIDI notes. Often you don’t hear these when playing guitar yourself, but can detect them easily when listening live to the generated MIDI.

Striving to improve MIDI note accuracy, encourages clean picking and accurate fingering, with good control over non-sounding strings by damping them.

Not only will your MIDI output be more accurate, your normal guitar playing will sound clearer and more professional. It’s like having a tutor sitting beside you giving you advice. It’s also great fun!

Usage Ideas
Sequencing bass lines
The G2M™ is great for sequencing natural-sounding bass lines. It is often more convenient to play the bass line using the higher octaves on the guitar where tracking is most accurate and latency is lowest. The resulting recorded performance can then be transposed in your sequencer to use as a bass line. Many sequencers will allow transposition of any number of semitones. Then, for example, you can play on the 3rd string and transpose back to the 6th string or lower.

Enhancing live performances
Mixing your live guitar sound and a synthesizer sound generated via the G2M™ and your sound module or software synth provides a new dimension to your playing. Add to searing lead lines with a detuned synth lead, add rich harmonies using a transposed patch, get a huge wall of sound using bass sounds an octave down to follow your lead playing or rhythm picking. Once your guitar signal is translated into the MIDI domain, there's no limit to the layering of sounds you can achieve.

Guitar Solos
Tricky-to-play fast guitar parts such as solos can be recorded into your sequencer at a slow speed so accuracy can be achieved in the performance. Any mistakes in the recorded MIDI can be edited out in the sequencer and the result can then be played back at the required speed by changing the sequencer tempo. And because it’s MIDI you don’t get any of the transposition artifacts you would get if you tried to do the same with the original audio!

Notating your music
The G2M™ is a great input device when used togther with music notation software such as GuitarPro and Sibelius and most Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) software such as SONAR, Logic and Cubase. No longer do you have to think about how you will score your guitar part, you can simply connect via your G2M and play.
