Sorry, that *sigh* is condescending. Not my intention. I was thinking more about all the times we try to make things ourselves when an available solution already exists. I myself am guilty of this as much as anyone. A good mantra, at least in my media art circles, is "be lazy like a fox". :D

> Pitch to midi guitar systems have been around since the mid 80s. If the OP only needs control data, there's no need to bring a dedicated computer and multiple channel sound card into the equation. I use a Shadow SH-075 which was built in W. Germany (!) in the late 80's I bought off of eBay and it's tracking speed is definitely acceptable, at least for what I do. There is a new guy on the block, the Fishman Tripleplay which I'd like to upgrade to as it's standard USB midi so will work with PdParty and my iPad. Both of these are relatively small as compared the Roland's rack mount and stomp box offerings (why don't they shrink the GR stuff by now?).

>> You could also get a sound card with 6 analog inputs and connect each output of the microphone to an individual channel. This way you can do 6 at a time.
