Livid Guitar Wing Midi Controller
I just want to slip this news in between the Winter NAMM 2014 posts because I think it looks like a really cool device and it has the backing of Living Color’s Vernon Reid who loves incorporating technology into his rig so it must really work like they say. Please watch the video below for a full explanation and demonstration but basically the Guitar Wing clips on to the bottom horn of pretty much any electric guitar, is wireless and has 5 pressure sensitive pads, 3 touch faders, 6 function buttons, 4 select switches, XYZ motion control and comes with their own WingFX multi-effects software as well as being a class compliant MIDI device so that it can control your software plugins, iOS apps, MIDI effects units etc. It takes the whole sticking a Korg Kaos pad to your guitar to another level.
Despite having developed many MIDI devices in the past Livid have turned to Kickstarter to help develop the product into a fully featured production model so watch the video below and if you are interested in donating please use the widget at the bottom of the page.
