The Oberheim Strummer analyzes chords played on your MIDI keyboard and plays them back to your MIDI sound source (Synthesizer or Sampler) just as they would be played from a guitar. Not only will the chord voicings be correct, but the chords can actually be "Strummed!" With the Oberheim Strummer, you can even change the speed and direction of your "Strums" just by changing the way you play your MIDI keyboard. Also, the unit has the ability to distinguish the difference between chords and single notes, allowing you to send chords out on one MIDI channel (Distorted Guitar Sound for example) while your single notes are sent out on a different channel (i.e. Solo Sound). The Oberheim Strummer will transform your keyboard playing into a stunning and convincing performance featuring realistic guitar articulation.
