Roland is proud to announce the GI-20 GK-MIDI Interface, a powerful Guitar/Bass-MIDI interface ideal for turning a synthesizer or MIDI module into a guitar synth. The GI-20 detects the signal from any electric guitar or bass equipped with a GK-2A or GK-2B pickup, respectively, and lets players trigger synthesizers and samplers, or even record their performance as MIDI data. And with its built-in USB MIDI port, the GI-20 is perfect for computer-based recording setups.

Using a guitar or bass equipped with an optional GK-2A or GK-2B Divided Pickup, the GI-20 can be used to trigger virtually any MIDI-compatible synthesizer or sampler, as well as outputting a player's "natural" guitar sound for amplification. Easy, knob-based controls and dedicated buttons allow for fast, intuitive operation, while a built-in USB port lets users quickly connect a GK-equipped guitar or bass to a variety of computer-based recording systems.

The GI-20's convenient Patch Memory lets users store settings including "Play Feel," plus Transpose/Mute settings for each string and Bank Select/Program Change messages for live performance. Flexible Transpose functions (+ 2 / - 3 octave) are also provided, along with optional footswitch control.

Connections to the GI-20 include a GK input, 1/4-inch Guitar output, Expression Pedal and Footswitch jacks, plus MIDI In/Out and USB.
