      You Rock Guitar 2nd Generation MIDI Guitar (H86637)
Availability:  


A MIDI guitar with plenty of uses and zero latency.

The YRG is a MIDI guitar for recording, composing, and creating Tablature via MIDI. It can also be used stand-alone with its internal sounds.

This YRG marks the next evolution of the ever popular YRG-1000 by Inspired Instruments Inc., also known as YouRock Guitar. It is yet to be beat as the first fast tracking, no latency, affordable digital MIDI guitar on the market. The YRG’s patented fingerboard technology and electronics have revolutionized the way a guitar player, other aspiring musician or DJ can create, record and play music.

The YRG connects to a host of mobile devices including the popular iPad to use with GarageBand. It also connects via USB to the MAC and PC. The YRG can be used with most recording and tablature software such as Logic, Reason and Ableton to name a few. Also compatible with Legacy MIDI synthesizer devices via its 5-pin MIDI connector.This versatile instrument never needs tuning and is backpack friendly. For beginners, or, if you enjoy games like Rocksmith and RockBand, the YRG is a perfect crossover instrument to real guitar playing.

Performance
New pickup system for improved reliability and consistency and firmware improvements to complement the new pickups.

Features
Firmware has been tweaked for a more musical experience. The new Layer and Zone structure allows two sets of sounds to be mapped on the fingerboard per user selection. Other new features: chorus effect, transposition, pan, zones can be stored per layer in the 99 presets.

Sounds
The onboard sounds are all new. Through a relationship with a professional sample house the built-in sound library is completely reworked to enhance the stand-alone capability of the YRG .

Case sold separately.

  • Nice little powerful controller

    As reviewed by Christopher Rennau on 1/1/2013

    For those who are old enough to remember this just like the Suzuki xg1m from the 80's only much better. The internal sounds are quite good and the feel of the guitar is better than it looks in the pictures. Its actually quite well built and performs amazingly accurate. Some other reviews have complained about tracking and latency; however, this is an instrument that needs to be adjusted to each players individual touch. String sensativity, volume, etc. can be adjusted via software to respond to different peoples styles of playing. It tracks just as well as the Rolands with little or no latency. The strings on the fretboard are actually rubber strips and take a little getting used to; however it does not take long, they respond to the slightest touch. I use this to sequence the guitar parts in my workstation arrangements and it gives them a human feel. If your one who is still into sequencing I highly recomend this product be a part of your studio.

Minimal or no latency , USB capable , can be used as a Game Controller and best of all makes an excellent travel companion for when I am traveling and need to create new song ideas 2 Thumbs Up!! or 5 Stars ..... I highly recommend it

  • Awesome

    As reviewed by Colin Irwin on 11/28/2012

    I use this in Logic and Ableton as a MIDI controller and the thing works great! It has always been difficult for me to compose with MIDI since I am not as proficient with keyboard as with guitar, but this bridges that gap. Also great for traveling, you can mess around with the internal sounds through headphones to practice and come up with some new licks! Tracking and sensitivity worked great for me, make sure to mess around with the string tension and some of the internal settings to fine tune it.
