Gibson Digital Guitar – A packet of MaGIC powder
“The digital pickup is built right in, and it sends a digital signal to a breakout box (called BoB) which converts to analog. Makes sense.
Then some lights started to go on. You can output a single analog signal made up of all six strings. Or, you can output two groups of three strings (hi-lo split). Or, you can output each string individually. Anyone with six guitar amps will be trying out some wild spacial effects that would put a sixties stereo guitar to shame.“
All made possible by the open source spec MaGIC that is intended to handle lots of audio and control data in real-time using plain old cat-5. I hope this cathes on.
