The B2M allows any bass to be used as a MIDI controller.

With the Sonuus B2M, any electric bass guitar can be used as a solo MIDI controller. The Peterson MIDI converter is simple to use and highly effective. It's "universal" because it doesn't need a special pickup mounted on your bass guitar, but instead simply connects to your instrument like any other effects pedal or tuner.

The B2M MIDI converter is a true plug-and-play solution for monophonic MIDI bass guitar, designed to give accurate triggering with very low latency. It can be used to sequence bass lines and add an edge to your live performances.

The MIDI converter features robust note detection to minimize wrong notes; a fast, accurate, MIDI pitch-bend or chromatic mode; and a built-in tuner for standard bass guitar tuning (4-7 strings). Its long battery life, compact size, lightweight, and portability make the B2M MIDI converter low maintenance and convenient. Open up the creative possibilities of your bass guitar.

  • Priced Right! Lots of Fun!

    As reviewed by Mickey on 5/31/2010

    I've been experimenting with Bass MIDI for about 1 year. I have been using a Roland GR-3B Pickup.It has been great but lets face it, the darn thing is ugly and bulky and hard to swap instruments. When I saw the B2M in Bass Player, I checked out the Sonuus sight and reviews. Needless to say, today, I laid the money down and came home with one. The darn thing works good but can be glitchy. Here are a few pointers I found in just the short time I've had it. First it works best on passive basses. Active basses can cause wierd tracking and octive jumps. Second it tracks better with a pick rather than finger picking. Third, mute any strings you don't want to sound. For example when finger picking a note on the D if your finger touches the A you will signal the MIDI to play the A. Once you practice this, it becomes less of a problem. Last and most important if the bass has two pickups, turn the volume off on the neck pickup and full volume on the bridge pickup. Tracking works best on the bridge pickups. You cannot touch any other MIDI convertor for this price. That is why I give it a four out of five. Once you practice with it the B2M becomes alot of fun. The thing I like is I can switch basses with just a cord and strap change.

  • excellent device

    As reviewed by NJ on 4/6/2010

    The Sonuus B2M is excellent at what it is meant to do. No extra hardware required, no midi pick-ups or anything to attach to the bass, only line into Sonuus and midi out to computer usb, easy! Works well, low latency, no setup. Only drawback is it does not recognize individual channels but only pitches, so that if you want to use if for midi sounds only, is perfect, an A on the A string is the same as an A on the E string, etc. If you want to have distinct triggers for each fret and separate open A from A on another string, you can't do it, it is only a pitch detector not more complex than that. For that kind of extensive control, you still need to have an AXON and Roland MIDI pickup, for straight soft instrument playing with little fuss the Sonuus does the job extremely well!

    I tried to keep an open mind. I tried to give the Sonuus converters a fair shake. I read all the reviews and followed all the instructions...and still found this product useless. I must admit, my local GC didn't have the B2M so I originally bought the G2M. When that didn't work, I returned it and ordered the B2M. When it arrived you would have thought it was Christmas. I ran down to my studio made the connections, and dialed up my favorite upright bass patch. I immediately experienced the octave jumps and missed notes that the reviews had warned about. I then switched basses, hit my active bypass switch, and rolled off the bridge pickup...same thing. After swapping out all the cables, and trying out five different basses, I couldn't find one combination that could get me through a simple major scale with any semblance of musicality. The Accessories staff at GC had mixed reviews when I bought it. One said, "I've never had a complaint with the box," the other saying, "I haven't found a bass to midi converter yet that allows you to play naturally without latency issues.". I think I need to practice my key bass as the quest continues....
