Can the Hexpander be installed in a guitar with more than six strings?Updated 6 days ago

Currently, the Hexpander and all MIDI converters are limited to six strings. There are two popular workarounds for more than six strings:

  1. have two of everything: two Hexpanders, two MIDI controllers, two cords coming from your guitar, and split the systems.  Each system can have a maximum of six strings.
  2. Install the Hexpander and the Acousti-phonic and have six strings on MIDI and the others on piezo-only. Depending on the music you're playing, it may work to have the bass strings as straight acoustic and the rest as MIDI.
