Living Colour's Vernon Reid demonstrating the Guitar wing on a Parker guitar
The adjustable device clamp and grip can be secured to and detached from the lower horn of an electric or bass guitar's body
The Guitar Wing class-compliant MIDI controller wirelessly connects to a computer over Bluetooth LE via an included USB MIDI dongle
Livid says that players can integrate the expressive wireless controller with almost any music creation software to tweak effects on the fly
The Guitar Wing includes five pressure-sensitive pads, three touch faders, six function buttons and four select switches
For guitarists who like to experiment, digital signal processing technology has opened up whole new worlds of tonal exploration and control. Unlocking the parameters, effects and features in computer-based software while playing can be a cumbersome affair though, often involving some nifty tap dancing on multi-effects units like the G5 or stopping every so often to adjust the settings on a tabletop MIDI controller. The Guitar Wing from Livid Instruments attaches to the instrument itself and offers wireless function control of software plug-ins, Digital Audio Workstations (DAW), iOS apps, MIDI effects and so on, all within reach of the picking hand and available while playing.
