A second dock located on the headstock area allows the player to read music or lyrics from an iPod or iPhone while playing.
iAxe ships with a variety of apps, designed for learning how to play the guitar and recording. But it is described by Behringer as an ‘open platform’. Unfortunately, the company has not provided official details on whether that means it works as a standard MIDI controller or not.
“With the iAxe Guitar, I wanted to make a product that introduces everyone to the lifelong pleasure of making music by not only providing instant musical gratification but to also guide and grow the musician’s talent toward becoming a sophisticated guitar player,” said CEO Uli Behringer.
“The iAxe Guitar uses the power of a tablet computer and the creativity of our partner developers to become a truly open platform for musical expression.”
Pricing and availability are to be announced.
