We all need to be guitar heroes, however most of us should accept letting a MIDI board play our riffs utilizing a MIDI controller. [Joris] thinks a MIDI controller ought to seem like a cool instrument and thus the Ni28 was born. Honestly, we first thought we had been wall artwork, however on nearer look, you possibly can see the fretboard and the soundhole are festooned with buttons.
Actually, they aren’t actually buttons. The Ni within the identify is as a result of the buttons are nickel-plated brass plates that act like contact switches. There’s just about no activation pressure required and you may simply contact a couple of plate at a time.
We didn’t see any plans or construct particulars accessible, however that is the form of factor you’d most likely need to make with your personal customized touches anyway. It looks as if you can construct the body utilizing quite a lot of strategies and the MIDI controller itself isn’t exhausting to determine.
We had been somewhat stunned there was no video of the Ni28 in motion. But should you construct your personal model, ship up your finest MIDI air guitar video, please.
This did remind us of the synthfonio. Or, possibly begin with an actual guitar.
