Guitar Fretboard VIEW VST or plugin/add-on for editing MIDI tracks

Does a MIDI display/editor of a 6 string guitar fretboard exist.... I have a method of assigning MIDI channels to guitar string samples (17 - 20 frets of samples for each string) and then play a MIDI guitar controller to trigger the samples.

As you may know, the MIDI converters of the MIDI guitars sometimes does a sloppy job and the resultant midi track needs copious editing.  Trying to do this editing in PRV is tedious to say the least.

Now, if there existed a editor that looked like a guitar fretboard so you could easily edit all six midi channels at the same time and see which frets were being triggered along a time line, it would make this editing a breeze.

So, anybody ever see anything like this.. it would be great as some type of add-in for X1 but even if I had to export the MIDI track, do the editing in another program and then re-import the MIDI track back into X1, it would make this editing much easier and even allow those without MIDI guitar pickups a way to edit more realistic guitar parts.

Thanks in advance,
Jim

    i use a graph tech ghost system on one of my guitars and it does do a lot of false triggers.  one thing i do is use the find/change command to drop all notes below a certain velocity, and use the edit/filter to select and drop notes below a certain duration.   works like a charm and makes my editing a lot less time consuming.

    Thanks ebabes13!  Cool idea... I'll try that!  I have a Roland GI-20 Gtr to MIDI converter and while I never notice problems live, when I record, I see quite a bit of false triggers and low velocity double-triggers.


    How do you like the Ghost system in general?  I was thinking of trying that on my next guitar build.

    i think the ghost system is a little better than my old GK-2...that being said, there are still a lot of false triggers.   Being VERY precise in your playing makes a big difference. The chief advantage for me is that the system is a lot cleaner looking because it's built into the saddles and there are no cumbersome looking modules hanging on to the guitar
