Still adjusting it

Comments about Roland GI-20 GK-MIDI Interface:

I am using computer software as a sound module. The only problem with doing that is computer noise over the amp. I don't care about the sound modules out there because the lack of easy analog control. I haven't looked into control surfaces for the sound modules but that is probably my best option if they exist. As for the GI-20. It tracks notes fast depending on the MIDI sound selected. In some software programs it has trouble figuring out which note to play. This problem can be eliminated by seperating the MIDI track into six tracks. I just have to figure out how to get all six MIDI tracks to sound the same on my computer. Yes it is a pain. But I don't like looking for a keyboard or another artist to lug around. Plus it is nice to get tab for what I play right. No I still have to find a way to get Six MIDI guitar tab files into one tab easily. Remember it works best in the multiple MIDI channel mode. I'll get there it will probably take a whole week 10 hours a day to get it running perfect. Plus I'm almost finished adjusting the pickup for the best possible position. Still right now it is in a good spot.
