Description
In 1986 the Stepp DG-1 Guitar Synthesizer was introduced at the 1986 NAMM show. The MSRP was $7,000 but it was also considered among the first of it's type of Guitar Synthesizers and it has MIDI control as well.

The DG-1 features 12 oscillators that are digitally controlled VCO's. 2 for each of the 6 strings on a guitar. This allowed for greater polyphony and tracking since each string had it's own oscillator. The DG-1 is a self contained synthesizer within the guitar controller itself while at the same time offer MIDI control of external synthesizers. Its synthesis engine is technically an Oberheim Expander using SSM and CEM chips.
