Control Your Software from Your Axe!

As a high-tech guitarist or bass player, you've probably been looking for the best way to incorporate all of the powerful software you know and love into your performance rig. That's the same thing that inspired Livid to create their Guitar Wing wireless MIDI controller, a unique device designed to put a full set of class-compliant MIDI controls you want right where you need them to be. Fueled by a rechargeable Li-ion battery, the totally wireless Guitar Wing offers you hands-on access to virtually any parameters and controls in your favorite DAW, virtual instrument, or effects plug-in software. Best of all, it attaches to virtually any instrument with no modification necessary.

Livid Guitar Wing Wireless MIDI Controller at a Glance:
  • Pain-free integration with your guitar and your software
  • Control every aspect of your virtual effects or DAW
  • WingFX provides you with a complete wireless effects rack
Pain-free integration with your guitar and your software

One of the driving concepts behind Livid's Guitar Wing was to create a high-quality wireless MIDI controller you could easily affix to any guitar and seamlessly take over any MIDI-controllable software - and they totally knocked it out of the park. We've seen this gadget attached to double cutaway guitars, single cutaway basses, and even a violin, and in each case, the rubberized mounting clamp and swivel top made it an easy fit. On the software side, the Guitar Wing sends class-compliant MIDI via Bluetooth wireless to a dedicated receiver, which your DAW, plug-ins, or other applications will recognize just as any other plug-and-play MIDI controller. It really couldn't be simpler.

Control every aspect of your virtual effects or DAW

For such a small device, Livid sure packed a lot of controls into the Guitar Wing. A set of velocity- and pressure-sensitive pads with aftertouch let you play sounds from virtual instruments, toggle plug-in effects, or trigger loops from your DAW. Three touch faders with LED indicators let you grab hold of any parameters you like and freely manipulate them, and a series of buttons and select switches provide even more performance options. One of the things that's impressed Sweetwater guitarists and MIDI geeks alike is the Guitar Wing's built-in accelerometer, which lets you control multiple parameters just by moving your guitar around. It's incredibly fun to play with!

WingFX provides you with a complete wireless effects rack

Creating an amazingly cool MIDI controller you can clamp onto your axe wasn't good enough for Livid, which is why they also developed an impressive piece of software to go along with it. WingFX is both a VST/AU plug-in and a standalone guitar effects engine that's perfect for live use. Distortion, modulation, delay, reverb - it's all inside WingFX and it's all fully controllable with your Guitar Wing. But that's not all, Livid also created a comprehensive collection of presets for Ableton Live, Bitwig Studio, Native Instruments Guitar Rig, and many others, so you'll be ready to rock out with your Guitar Wing right out of the box.

I'm free from my pedal board!

Love this thing. Combined with the kenton usb midi host, I am now able to control my line 6 pedal board and change patches from out on the dance floor. I do hope they eventually can build the host into the wing but for the time being this is awesome

No more mouse!

I've been dreaming of this for years. I considered many times making almost the exact same thing but didn't have the soldering skills. I use garage band to record all my tracks and this is perfect for me. I also like wing effects, I hadn't planned on using this at all but its a nice way to try something different in my studio. No hands is the best part. No more stopping to click the mouse or find the right button on my foot pedal. I was an early backer on kickstarter and it went way beyond what I was expecting. Great build and a lot lighter than I anticipated.

Great with Guitar Rig

Really great idea. Functions perfectly in tandem with Guitar Rig's foot controller. This item is still being developed by the folks at Livid. Currently all of the push button controls are momentary, however Livid is developing a firmware upgrade to toggle this to latching I was advised. Overall its a great tool for Guitar Rig control, and will develop further once firmware updates are added.

Really useful

I basically just wanted something to control Logic while I'm recording my guitar. This way I can stand by my pedals and do different takes without having to walk back and forth... simple and effective, but more importantly wireless!

Cool stuff!

I saw a video of this controller on youtube and wanted to try it out. It mapped easily with my Ableton session and within minutes I was able to play my guitar and trigger some of my favorite synths! I really look forward to using this during my gigs! Great product and very cool. Definitely a useful buy

Sweetwater Advice

Livid Guitar Wing

There are other tools for wrangling your DAW while playing, but this is the only one I know that packs so many controls into such a small footprint, works wirelessly, and snaps right onto your axe....
