latching onto the fundamental frequency, of the string, has been a challenge for the midi guitar interfaces. Now, Midi-Max makes it easier and has less of a chance for glitches. Hoag's design philosophy 'keep it simple' has allowed for less latency then other pickups. The use of fewer parts and no added active devices, is the plus factor here. The higher output is the main contributing factor. Midi-Max pickups have not been amplified to get this output. it comes directly off the pickup and can reach as high as the applied voltage source, a plus in a high noise enviroment.
