The expression of a violin, the playability of a guitar, with the power of a MIDI controller that shines. Literally.
"The XT Synth is a mix of guitar, violin and midi controller. My inspiration was to make an instrument that could be played like a guitar, with the expression of a violin, with the sounds of a synthesizer. The neck has 4 soft potentiometers that can be played similar to an string instrument. They can be tuned however the player wants. Because instead of strings it has soft pots, the instrument is not tempered, like a violin, allowing vibratos, portamentos, and microtones."
The XT Synth was a finalist at the Guthman New Instrument Competition 2018.
