New Zivix Jamstik Makes The MIDI Guitar Portable

Zivix has introduced a new portable MIDI guitar controller at this year’s CES convention, the Jamstik

Zivix calls the Jamstik “a real guitar and a mobile peripheral device that can see your fingers”, in real time. The Jamstik will work with mobile tablets, smartphones, and PC and Mac computers. 

Zivix will be offering three apps: JamTutor, JamHero game and Jam Live music remixer. It will also be compatible with CoreMIDI apps.

Detailed specs are to come, but Zivix plans to release the Jamstik this summer, priced around $300.

  1. looks a bit too small to be of real use, just build a full size guitar with this functionality it may be worth looking into

  2. If the released product is as smooth and responsive as the video shows it, then I’m definitely a customer.

    • When he plays Guitar Hero, there was a part, when he miss some notes – thats quite strange for demo video, don`t you think? May be i`m too paranoid, but it can be latency problems O_o

  3. A better solution:
    The next update of the JamOrigin MIDI Guitar app should make it on pair with the VST version of the same and then all guitar controllers are outdated.

  4. my hopes for an accurate and affordable midi guitar controller have been built up and smashed to the ground so many times. if this works without glitches and ghost notes and other problems then $300 is a bargain
