You can use the Shadow Quick Mount Guitar to Midi Converter System with electric or acoustic steel string guitars as a MIDI controller with any MIDI synthesizer or sound with no programming or complex setup. It also provides access to any sequencer or computer with MIDI software for composing or printing sheet music. Mounts in seconds to the strap button and requires no modification or damage to the instrument.
How it works: The analog signals of the strings are converted into electrical signals by the hex pickup. Then the analog circuitry buffers the signal and filters out the harmonics for digital pitch analysis. After filtering, the microprocessor determines the pitch played by measuring the time of one sinus vibration (half of the cycle) that is the shortest part of the note. This allows the SH 075 to make a positive analysis in a MAXIMUM of 2.5 vibrations. Far superior to products that can take up to 7 vibrations for analysis. As soon as the pitch is confirmed, the microprocessor instantly sends the information as a standard MIDI message (note and velocity) to any MIDI synthesizer, sequencer or computer.

When it works, it's great. But it doesn't always. Sometimes the 5th string pickup stops working, sometimes the high and low E's stop working. I've sent Shadow Electronics several emails, but they've yet to reply and we're going on two months now. The problem? They're over in Germany with no support here in the States and nobody I can talk to outside of sending unanswered emails to their email@example.com account. I just want it fixed! And at this point, it's pretty much a paper weight. Don't waste your time with this pickup! You'll be throwing $100's of dollars away without recourse, unless you return it within the first 45 days. If there's a problem with it, your stuck with it...there are no options to getting it fixed.
