Beta Testers Wanted

We are looking for beta testers for our new VST Plugin which is designed to help MIDI guitarists work with softsynths.

The beta programme is open to existing Gtak/Gtak4 customers only. If you are interested in participating please email beta { a t } e v e n h a r m o n i c { d o t } c o m giving your Guitar to MIDI converter model (Axon AX100, Roland VG99 etc), OS (Windows XPSP3, Mac OS 10.5 etc), your main sequencer, the main softsyths you have and any previous beta testing experience.

Places will be limited and we need to choose people to cover as many different configurations as possible, so don't be offended if we can't use you! Beta testers who send in useful reports will get a free licence for the plugin.

Also, if you are thinking of buying Gtak4 in the near future and live in the EU now would be a good time to do it, as we will soon have to start charging 21% VAT to all EU customers!

Gtak4 is here!

Instrument's recently released Kontakt4, it's been out a couple of

for all registered Gtak users! Just log into your account and you
will find Gtak4 there for download*.

is released.

Our new Midipicks Forum for all Guitar to MIDI converter users is also now open. Find it at http://evenharmonic.com/midipicks .

We also now have a demo version of Gtak available. This works with the demo version of Kontakt3, so anyone with a Guitar to MIDI converter, computer and soundcard can try the system.
