Re: guitarists: triple play?
Oh... maybe this needs just a little more. Adapting to a fixed latency
may be a non issue for an experienced musician but tracking and MIDI
conversion is difficult because it is not fixed. Lower notes requires
longer time to get tracked by a MIDI pickup system because the essens
of a low note is slower vibrations. This is why, when I was a MIDI
guitarist in bands, played synth bass lines at the very highest fret
position and set the sounding synth module to transpose down three or
four octaves (faster tracking)
