XY MIDIpad guitar by Hysteria Guitars

Beautiful Hysteria Guitars with MIDI Strip and XY MIDIpad

I posted pictures of a beautiful MIDI Strip guitar on AmpTone Lab Facebook page a while back. This guitar was made by Farid from Hysteria Guitars. This, however, is not their only guitar featuring AmpTone Lab controller. You can find a showcase of Hysteria Guitars’ with MIDI Strip and XY MIDIpad below. These are one of the most inspiring guitars I’ve seen, so they are well worth a blog post!

MIDI Splitter coming soon!

MIDI Splitter is now available! Check it out – MIDI Splitter

We have just finished working on our new product (finally!). MIDI Splitter is a 1-in 4-out MIDI thru box. What makes it unique in comparison to other thru boxes is the fact that it can be powered by a 9V battery (which will last for a very long time) or by a typical 9V power supply (the same that you use for your stompboxes). MIDI Splitter will automatically use power from the power supply if it is connected to the device, using the battery only as a backup – just like most guitar effects.

You may find some MIDI thru boxes that are MIDI-powered (require no battery or power supply). It is a great feature but… it doesn’t always work. Not every MIDI device can power the thru box – if it turns out your MIDI controller is one of them, you would end up with a useless thru box. That’s why we decided to take the reliable and universal approach and simply power it with a battery and a power supply.

All parts and documentation have been ordered last week and if everything goes well, we should receive them and assemble the first batch of MIDI Splitters within couple of weeks. Hopefully before Christmas!
