Misa in the design studio
The bright circle at the center of the screen controls aspects of the sound so tapping, dragging, sliding and otherwise touching the screen results in different sound combinations.
The neck consists of 144 'keycaps' spread across six rows and along 24 'frets'
Misa has the shape of a traditional guitar but the sound is created by the interaction of hand movement or position and some open source software
Each 'keycap' represents a note, similar to fret positions on a traditional guitar but the sound of each one can be varied according to user preference
A player forms chord patterns or solo structures on the neck and then controls different aspects of the sound via the touchscreen interface
A software engineer based in Sydney, Australia has created a digital guitar controlled by open source software which he hopes will see musicians play electronic music in a live environment. Players control the pitch, speed and volume of notes produced by the Misa Digital Guitar via a 24 'fret' neck and touchscreen interface.
