A MIDI guitar that really delivers has been a long time coming - but we've finally found one! Back in issue 14 we reviewed the YouRock YRG <Gen2> and Tom Quayle concluded: "If you're in the market for a guitar to MIDI controller, I can't think of a single reason why you wouldn't go for the YRG <Gen2>. It's much cheaper than any of the other offerings from other companies and does the job better." Watch the review in the video below...



He went on to say: "The GI conclusion all round was that this isn't just a fabulous instrument - it's an absolute bargain, too. I want one!" In fact Tom has gone on to add a YouRock to his armoury of some of the coolest high-tech gear!


Essentially the YouRock YRG <Gen2> is a MIDI Guitar Controller/Recorder with a touch-sensitive fingerboard. Here's what you can do with it:

Control music software such GarageBand, Cubase, Sonar, Reason, Pro Tools

USB interface compatible with PCs, Macs and iPads, etc ...

Combine live playing with backing tracks

Control MIDI keyboards

Record your own playing

Carry the You Rock Guitar in a standard backpack

Play along with your favourite music
