We’re installing custom made pickups on the guitars. Pickups generally read an analog signal (because they’re magnets), and then you distort that signal into sound accordingly.
With analog to digital conversion, we’re taking the analog signal, and turning it into 1’s and 0’s - something a computer can read and translate into… anything.
This technology (not for activated lighting, but for sound in general) was pioneered by John Frusciante and Ratatat. We’re just taking an existing system, and rethinking how it’s used.
