Jammy EVO MIDI guitar- Kickstarter

Jammy EVO MIDI guitar- Kickstarter. This follows up the Jammy guitar which was released in 2018.

MIDI records data such as notes and timing. Here MIDI lets one use a guitar body to try other virtual instruments on a computer system, like synths, violins, horns, etc.

"Jammy EVO will have around 8-10ms of latency from the moment you pick a string to Jammy outputting the MIDI note. Of course, depending on the connection you’ll use (USB or Bluetooth), your computer specs, audio interface, and DAW, the overall latency may vary." Assuming the musician has an optimised music computer and audio interface, I would add at least 5ms to get the signal to computer, speakers and ears for roughly 15ms total IME.

Kickstarter shows a lot of sensors on Jammy. And some proprietary strings.
