USB Guitar Cable

Thu Jan 11, 2018 2:36 pm


I recently got a Pi 3 and want to connect up my guitar so I can create my own effects using the pi. I'm new to coding and electronics but I was wondering if a USB guitar cable like in the pic below would work? Also what's the easiest way to write the code.

Reverse Google Image search suggest that this is the product

Looks like it has an ADC inside it. Would be worth connecting to the Pi to see whether it is recognized as a microphone type device.

I found this old article which might give you a head start

Not a project for a beginner I'd have thought but it looks likes its at least possible
