[chuck-users] MIDI guitars

Though bit off topic, I remember a nifty guitar to MIDI system that
Julius Smith and Phil Gosset developed in the back rooms of CCRMA.  At
the moment it detected a string pluck, it would make a rough guess of
the pitch and immediately issue a NOTE_ON command.  Then it would
start issuing pitch bend commands to refine the guess as the waveform
became more periodic.  So it was responsive and didn't require a
guitar with a wired neck.

Julius: did anything come of that design?
