Maybe Guitar Hero can be useful to musicians after all. Customised versions of the controller that comes with the game are nothing new â theyâre all over the internet, in fact â but as far as we know, Slapyakâs is the first to turn said hardware into a full-on MIDI controller with a 5-pin socket.
This new mod is based on the Wii version of the controller and enables the user to play over two octaves of an eight note scale (the octaves being played can be changed should you wish). To use it, you simply need to plug it into the MIDI-compatible instrument of your choosing.
Of course, playing this controller is one thing â actually building it is quite another. If you want to give it a try, youâll find instructions on the Slapyak website â just donât come crying to us if it doesnât work properly.
