Can't say for sure, but it looks like a project to put monitoring hardware inline with a guitar/bass which will then auto generate the musical "tabs" (notes / chords) via PC software. Looks pretty cool, I played with a similar product years back that was strictly microphone / software based, and while it came close sometimes, it wasn't very accurate. I'm guessing that the hardware component he's got up there will do a much better job. :)

You'd be fairly correct sswilson, though we originally wanted to/hoped to do it via signal analysis like how Rocksmith works, however at the time we did not possess the skills or knowledge to do this (within our 8 month time frame of the project).

I should have most of it up this morning, last night I uploaded all the pictures so I just have to format from my Word doc to the forum posts.

Alright, this thing should be fully updated, contemplating putting up the few tech @ work pictures as it contains other people in it. I'll let you know if I decide to or not.

So how does it monitor/record the notes? Is there an actual cct from each individual metal fret which completes through the individual metal strings?
