Guitar Wizard prototype

Music Wizard Group has unveiled the protetype of Guitar Wizard, a gaming package designed to teach aspiring rock stars how to play real music on a real guitar. The package includes both the SoundTech Ediface Digital Guitar Interface and the Guitar Wizard Software, allowing users to play and learn on a Mac or PC with an existing acoustic or electric guitar. The SoundTech Ediface technology converts the guitar sounds to digital for live interactive video game play, and virtually any guitar is supported, according to the company. The package is slated for shipment in early 2008 (pricing was unavailable).

"Music has always been universal, but understanding how to read and interpret musical notation has been unnecessarily difficult," the company said. "The guitar is another challenge to figure out as well, so learning how to play a guitar, especially lead guitar, has always been incredibly challenging."

The SoundTech Ediface Digital Guitar Interface comes with a pick-up and converter that attaches directly to a steel string electric, acoustic electric, or acoustic guitar of any size or shape. The Ediface is fully plug and play compatible with Mac OS X as well as Microsoft Windows XP/Vista with no driver installation necessary.
