Misa Digital Guitar – one gorgeous musical instrument for the 21st century


This beautiful looking Misa Digital Guitar is just fine in every direction. Not only does it come with some impressive tech chops (e.g. touchpad, Ethernet etc) and look great, but it also sounds like it can do the business. And to top it off the Aussie designer has powered it with Linux and open source software, so anyone can hack on it. It’s a MIDI interface of course, but even so, what a lovely way to move the art of the guitar forward.



 That being said, the Misa digital guitar software is open source, and powered by the Linux operating system. This means programmers have the flexibility to modify how it works, and even change the interface to provide specific functionality. This is important because collaboration from the users themselves, experimenting and innovating in their own ways, will further improve the instrument. The Misa digital guitar is a MIDI controller. It must be plugged into a MIDI capable sound module. The sound of this instrument is limited only by what you connect to it.

  • Very good post. I’ve found your blog via Yahoo and I’m really happy about the information you provide in your posts. Btw your sites layout is really messed up on the Kmelon browser. Would be cool if you could fix that. Anyhow keep up the great work!
