Berlin-based musician Robin Sukroso has introduced the ACPAD, described as “the world’s first wireless MIDI controller for acoustic guitar’.
The ACPAD lets you combine acoustic and electronic performance in one instrument, letting you finger drum, trigger loops, control loopers, play electronic instruments and more.
Here’s a video demo of the ACPAD in action:
In the video, Sukroso plays acoustic guitar, drums and bass, at the same time.
- Supports both Wireless MIDI and USB MIDI connections.
- Battery powered or USB
- Presets for Ableton Live
- Velocity sensitive with accurate triggering and no noticeable latency
- Low acoustic damping – ACPAD is just 2 mm thick and mounts onto your guitar like a pickguard, keeping your acoustic loud and projecting well.
- Customizable Designs – Choose from wood grain, black and white designs and more planned
Pricing and availability for the ACPAD are still to be announced. Production of the ACPAD is planned via a Kickstarter project. See the ACPAD site for details.
