The Panzer Guitar is an instrument like no other, allowing you to play thousands of different sounds while retaining the look and feel of a traditional electric guitar. Use your computer’s USB port to play any synth at a moment’s notice. Incredibly intuitive, the Panzer Guitar is easily played by inexperienced and veteran musicians alike. Use it both in the studio for streamlined music production and in the garage to jam out alongisde your friends. With the Panzer Guitar, anything is possible.
– Say goodbye to sore fingertips and strained wrists. The Panzer Guitar is completely stringless, instead using smooth aluminum touchpads. Your fingers will glide across this fretboard with ease.
– No pick? No problem. Just block the path of a laser with your finger to play a note. It’s that simple. Better yet, use two or three fingers at once to take your song to the next level.
– The Panzer Guitar is a MIDI instrument that communicates with your computer just like a USB keyboard does. Use it with any music software, including Pro Tools, Ableton Live, FL Studio, and Logic Pro. With so many software options, a plethora of different sounds are at your disposal.
– Fine-tune your sound on the fly with ease using the set of four ancillary knobs. Use them for macro control to alter your sound in middle of a song, or for patch selection to change sounds completely. In addition, you can use the octave shifter to access a whole range of notes that a traditional guitar could never reach.
