  • Hex input over USB

    So it seems there are a few ways to get hex inputs (audio and midi) over USB right now...



    1. Specialized guitar with own interface (Firebird X, etc)

    2. Hex pickup to 13-pin, 13-pin to Roland VG-99

    3. Hex pickup to 13-pin, 13-pin to Roland GR-55



    Are there any other USB (or firewire) interfaces out that provide audio and midi from a 13-pin connector? (similar to Axon AX-50 but with hex audio too)

    I don't think a lot of people USE a hex input in the first place!



    They are just not that common.



    So why would anyone care if they were made?

      At one time I was tempted by the RMC Fanout Box, which has a 13-pin input and 6 quarter inch outputs (one per string). However, I feel like I haven't fully exploited the capabilities of my VG-99. I know you asked for USB output instead of hex output, but if that remotely interests you, you can google it up and also find some DIY schematics for making your own.
