luthier custom kit controls
Posted 18 December 2012 - 11:57 AM
Will it be possible to have all auto-tune controls and functions available on the guitar, and not have to use an ipad or midi controller attached to the guitar via midi cable? For example, pickup type, pickup position, tunings, etc. controlled by knobs and switches on the guitar? Or will we have to use the antares floor pedal to control the guitar functions, if not an ipad?
I'd rather use the 8-pin connection just for software updates and not for controlling the guitar functions.

The guitar I'm building has a Graphtech piezo. (which can do piezo/acoustic or midi controlling) I mainly play hard rock and metal, so palm-muting is a critical sound/feel for me. Do you recommend using the Graphtech piezo pickups in my bridge or using the supplied hex pickup that your kit will have?
I have heard that both will work, but regarding palm-muting: one of the them reacts and "feels" more like a regular magnatic pickup.
I appreciate your help and answer!

I assume you mean using the luthier custom kit paired with a hex pickup and not a standard humbucker pickup, correct?

Have you planned what each of the controls and functions (knobs & switches) on the luthier custom kit will be? For example, one knob for guitar/pickup model, one knob for tunings, one three-way switch for pickup position, one knob for treble boost, etc? (is this a set plan, or something consumers can customize to their needs?)

There will be a certain amount of flexibility. In addition to the basic controls for String Tune, volume, tone and pickup selector, a guitar can optionally have one or two encoders. If two, one is used to select the parameter to be adjusted, while the other selects the specific setting of that parameter. If only one, it will act as a preset selector.
