At the 2012 NAMM Show, Misa Digital introduced the Kitara Era MIDI controller.
It follows the same basic design of the Misa Kitara tablet guitar synthesizer, but drops the synth engine.
- 24-fret neck with tactile buttons, instead of strings;
- Touch-sensitive rectangular pad that responds to three axis of movement (X/Y and velocity).
- MIDI-out and USB MIDI
- Internal rechargeable battery
- 1024 x 1024 touch panel
- Upgradeable firmware
The Misa Kitara Era is priced at $399. Availability is to be announced. See the Misa Digital site for details.
Note: The unofficial demo, above, is showing the original Kitara being used as a MIDI controller. No official demos for the Kitara Era are yet available.
