FreePlayer allows you to control effects by the motion of the guitar itself – fluidly and in real time. The first FreePlayer product – FreePlayer Express – allows you to control any MIDI-capable effect directly, or VST plug-ins via the supplied software. Just attach the FreePlayer to your guitar and connect via USB.
FreePlayer Express is a universal kit which can be attached to pretty much any guitar or bass, and connects to the outside world via USB (a wireless add-on is on the way). The Express contains a highly sensitive motion sensor which can be used to control pretty much any kind of effect, from simply merging in a delay or reverb through to '3-D – Wah' filter effects, or even the kind of wild pitch-based effects that are possible with Saltline Audio Solutions' 'Son of a Pitch' (bundled with FreePlayer). The Express hardware is rounded off with a tactile button array and a set of status LEDs.
Each FreePlayer unit comes with a USB cable, the FreePlayer software, and is bundled with VST plug-ins from Saltline Audio Solutions, Voxengo, MeldaProduction, NDC and FrettedSynthAudio.
Users will be able to download more VST plug-ins and sounds from the FreePlayer SoundStore, including Saltline Audio Solution's previously announced range of plug-ins developed specifically for FreePlayer.
