FSI-1 Fretsense Interface

All Fretsense instruments ship with the FSI-1 Fretsense Interface.

The FSI-1 Fretsense Interface is the hub through which Fretsense instruments connect to external devices like hardware synths, audio interfaces, computers, etc. The FSI-1 eliminates the need for having multiple MIDI and audio cables simultaneously plugged into the bass or guitar by connecting to the bass via a single Fretsense cable which transports all signals, ie. MIDI and audio signals.

The FSI-1 is robust and compact. It can fit in a 1U rack tray.



NOTE: The FSI-1 Fretsense Interface is included in the base price of all Fretsense MIDI basses and guitars. The above price is for additional units only.
