Nothing new except that in output you manipulate a "true" digitalized
signal instead of MIDI messages. I would like to know how the signal
of each string is extracted from the mixture signal...

The weird thing about this guitar is that you do not connect directly
the guitar to the computer, but to a breakout box which convert back
the digital signal to analog. Thus you need an additional audio
interface :

So, the only interest is that you get separate channels for each
string... in analog...

And for those who desire a Firewire guitar :
