FretTraX is a ‘fret-scanning’ process that utilizes a patent-pending technology to sense normal strings touching normal frets to trigger notes on connected hardware or software synthesizers — nearly instantly with full polyphony. The technology allows the guitar or bass fretted notes (no open triggers) to be played in a normal manner with or without synthesizer sounds.
A volume control on the instrument allows remote setting of the synthesizer volume to complement the instrument’s volume. A ‘Mode Button’ allows selections of voices, octaves, harmonies, etc. directly on the instrument.
A MIDI connector along side the standard 1/4 inch instrument plug interfaces with hardware synthesizers or, by using a MIDI-to-USB cable, connection to software synthesizers within a DAW.
