How to recognize the pitch of a string before it fully sounds.
The Axon Engineers have developed an early recognition system that analyses the impulse that occurs at the very instant a string is played. This system recognizes the pitch of a string before it fully vibrates. Dynamics and length are then computed as the string continues to sound.

The Axon controller single-unit rack mount has an early-recognition system which evaluates the impulses from the strings as soon as they are picked and converts them into values for pitch, dynamics and length by a 32-bit RISC processor..
On the Axon AX100 mkII, you can either choose from over 500 internal sounds, 10 drum kits and an SFX kit or trigger external sound devices such as samplers and synthesizers. Then, depending on the sound generator you are using, a guitar can become a synthesizer, an electric piano or a saxophone. With the 12 play area zones, the Axon AX100 mkII even makes your guitar multitimbral: you can play different instruments by splitting the fretboard, strings or pick position.
Optional connecting pedals and buttons add effects and even more variety to your playing, as does the built-in arpeggiator.
