Any MIDI guitar specific synthesizers on iOS?
I was wondering if anybody's using a guitar with a midi pickup to play the soft synths on their iPads?
One of the oddities about the feel of guitar synthesizers, is how it feels very wrong to play a sound with a long release, and have the sound decay over another note played on the same string. Subconsciously one knows that each string is monophonic, but expects to be able to play chords.
The ideal thing is a multitimbral synthesizer, with 6 monophonic voices, on their own midi channel, and you'd go to the trouble of setting up the guitar midi pickup box to output each string on a separate midi channel (probably 1-6). This adds that you can use pitch bend on each string. Has anyone done this with iOS?
One of the catches is that if you made 6 versions of an AU synth, if you wanted to edit the sound, you'd then have to update all 6 instances, not ideal.
I could see making something like this in Analog Kit, or one of the other modular synth programs, but wondered if there was anything that exists like this already?
