The Misa Kitara is a digital MIDI controller and musical instrument. It allows for a guitar player to produce a synthesized sound using techniques and motions referential to guitar playing. It is built in the shape of an electric guitar, complete with a full twenty-four fret neck. The name comes from the Finnish word for "guitar".



The Kitara was the first digital musical instrument to make use of touch buttons for strings/frets and an 8 inch multi-touch screen. The player controls sound effects and parameters through this display, as opposed to strumming strings like on a traditional guitar. The display allows for comprehensive control as well as a wide-variety of noise/effect production. The produced sound changes based on the position, number, and movement of fingers on this display.


The Kitara uses an internal wavetable synthesizer with effects to generate sound. Also, the Kitara is powered by a Linux based CPU. Being that Linux is open-source, it is possible to reprogram the Kitara, modify existing sounds, and even program new ones. Despite its shape and operation, it is meant to produce the sounds of a synthesizer through the playing style of a guitar (a common misconception is the reverse).
