Solange 6 MIDI Guitar

Powered by Fretsense™

With 35 years experience in MIDI bass design Industrial Radio is proud to release the Solange 6 MIDI guitar.

The Solange 6 is without a doubt the most advanced midi guitar system on the planet, designed to deliver the best performance possible using IR's Fretsense™ MIDI conversion technology which has never been seen before in a real 6-string electric guitar.

Industrial Radio's proprietry Fretsense technology reads pitch directly from the frets rather than using outdated pitch-to-voltage techniques.

Combining the Fretsense technology with the new RadioPick™ triggering and Imprint dynamics processing the Solange 6 delivers a MIDI guitar performance never experienced before.

The Solange 6 is a high quality USA / Australian made instrument delivering a great low noise magnetic sound plus access to the individual piezo outputs via the FSI-1 Fretsense Interface.

Guitarists can finally compete with keyboardists on an equal footing and take electronic music in totally new directions, delivering a new rythmic guitar approach to synth music.
