The device itself is about as small as it can possibly be and still do the job. It's scarcely larger than the 1/8" jack from the guitar. The glowing LED (green and orange) logo on the i2M is ethereal and beautiful in it's own right. The physical interface (which allows 4 MIDI configuration) is extremely easy to use (you can even use MIDI program changes to change the configuration if you your hands are occupied with fretting and picking.)
The supporting software is as beautifully designed as the hardware. It works flawlessly for setting up the four configuration schemes available and for setting up the device in general. It's so cool that you can split your fretboard and send bass MIDI signals on one channel and lead MIDI on another. Just very, very cool stuff.
If you are a guitarist and are interested in controlling MIDI instruments you MUST get the i2M! I will say that although you can plug and play and the response is immediate and gratifying, to truly get maximum utility from the i2M, you need to spend time and tweak the settings to your own playing style. Also, to get the most from the i2M, you will need to learn how to control the signal generated from your strings by palm muting and pick action. But that's standard to achieve the best output from any musical instrument.
I use a Mac and the i2M is a great controller for GarageBand or Logic. It's so much fun to play a rock organ from a guitar!
In conclusion, if you are a guitarist with an interest in MIDI, get the i2M. You will have a blast!
I use Sonar X1 as my DAW platform and I've found that it is easier to set up with some softsynths than others but it works as advertised. I found that really emphazing my vibrato while playing through string synths makes it sound almost exactly like a violin or cello or whatever. Mainly purchased it for laying down bass tracks for covers and originals and again- you have to adjust your playing quite a bit but once you get the hang of it it's a lot of fun. Playing a trumpet or a trombone on your guitar is just plain hilarious. It may take me a month or two to get serious with it because experimenting with it has me laughing like a mad scientist!
While I'm sure the i2M be used mostly by guitarists, I use it in live performance with a mic'ed alto saxophone; pumping the resulting MIDI output into varying plug-ins to create alternative instruments, and even entire horn sections. Yeah, the software will even output modally-scaled harmonies on different MIDI channels. WTF?!! This is crazy!!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!!!

It's a fun device to use, and be able to convert your music ideas from guitar to your DAW.
However, it's very sensitive to any motion you make on the guitar. Read more
It works with guitar, piano (keys and synths), trumpet, saxes, tuba, cimbasso very well. It does not work very smoothly with Strings or trombone. Read morePublished 2 months ago by miguel
Since its not monophonic, not for me. If anything, go for the you rock guitar if you want to chord and also there is a tracking problem with the sonuus.Published 3 months ago by David S.
