Overview

MIDI and guitar - two different worlds until now. With the Terratec AXON AX 100 MKII Controller, the technical problems involved in connecting electric or acoustic guitars and basses to the MIDIfied recording studio world are finally a thing of the past.

The ultra-fast guitar-to-MIDI controller in a single-unit rack mount has an early-recognition system that evaluates the impulses from the strings as soon as they are picked and converts them into values for pitch, dynamics and length. A 32-bit RISC processor makes it possible, opening up a whole new world of music to the guitarist.

Never again will you have to change guitars to produce a different sound - just switch the MIDI channel. On the AXON AX 100 MKII guitar to MIDI controller, you can either choose from over 500 internal sounds, 10 drum kits and an SFX kit or trigger external sound devices such as samplers and synthesizers. Then, depending on the sound generator you are using, a guitar can become a synthesizer, an electric piano or a saxophone. Everything is possible - simultaneously. With the 12 play area zones, the Terratec AXON AX 100 MKII even makes your guitar multitimbral - you can play different instruments by splitting the fretboard, strings or pick position!

Optional connecting pedals and buttons add effects and even more variety to your playing - as does the built-in arpeggiator. The AXON AX 100 MKII marks the beginning of a whole new era for guitarists and bassists.

Let´s Split!

Guitaristic virtuosity means mastering the entire technical spectrum. Quick changes between bass notes and high solistic melodies give the guitar its flexible ability. Not a problem with the AXON AX 100 MKII and its string splits and fret splits. Various sounds or timbres can be assigned to the different split areas.

You can, for example, assign a bass guitar sound to the lower strings and maybe a sax or distortion guitar sound to the upper solo strings, and then for the middle fret split a piano or twelve string sound.

The AXON AX 100 MKII Controller offers a variety of split possibilities that divide the play area of your guitar into various segments according to string and fret splits and pick position. Unbelievable possibilities you have to try to believe!

Special Effects are possible using the modulation wheel on the guitar interface as well as the pick control function, which registers the actual position of your right hand over the string. The AXON AX 100 MKII makes it possible to send every type of CC message directly from your guitar by varying your picking position. In addition, you can use two expression pedals and two foot switches to control hold functions and sequence.

Effects such as reverb, chorus and vibrato can be combined with volume, tremolo and such exotic parameters as filter cutoff, auto-wah and more. You can also control program change and the actual selection of sounds using your on-board mod wheel or pick position. Transform your axe into the most alive and dynamic guitar you've ever played.

MIDI Recordings

This is where the AXON AX 100 MKII shows its true colors. Totally separate MIDI signals for each string instead of the MIDI salad that comes from most other converters make reliable professional or home recordings possible.

You can now take advantage of the myriad of possibilities of multi-track recording, music-page-layout and printing, digital saves and data transport via CD-ROM or via the Internet. It's a new era for guitarists with the AXON AX 100 MKII.

The AXON AX 100 MKII comes with Cubase LE for PC und Mac.
