“Noatronic Onboard Expression is perfect as a simple standalone controller for smaller gigs and sessions, and it easily fits in the back of my Kemper.”

Stig Trip, Guitarist of the Year 2018 Finalist


Noatronic Onboard Expression is a revolutionary new way to bring control onboard your guitar.
The system consists of a small controller, which replaces an existing controller in your guitar, and a receiver which the guitar is connected through.
Our patent pending technology allows for transmit of both control signal and audio signal from one stereo (TRS) jack cable, without the need to change the guitars construction or aesthetics. No batteries required in the guitar either.
The guitar signal is directly bypassed inside the receiver to keep full audio-signal integrity.

The receiver works with most devices with either expression, switch or MIDI inputs.

Noatronic is a new guitar accessories company from Denmark dedicated to create simple and powerful solutions, that brings more freedom and better focus to guitarists.

My Inspiration:

As a performing guitarist of many years, I have used many different kinds of setups, ranging from stompbox based pedalboards, to MIDI-controlled rack solutions, and in the more recent years digital amp modellers and multi-effect units.

During a performance, I realised that complexity comes with the cost of focus. When I play the acoustic, I only play the guitar. But when I play the electric, I play the guitar and the pedalboard – why is it really so? One could argue that I should just get rid of my addiction to delays, overdrives and what not. But could a middle ground exist?

I started looking for a product that would allow me to move freely on the stage, and to focus on the really important stuff – my guitar and my performance. I did find some products, but they required a change to the construction or aesthetics of my guitar.

I just wanted to turn a tone knob into a controller, allowing me to control key parameters and to engage lead tones while standing at the end of the stage.

This is why I created Onboard Expression. I hope you will love it as much as I do.
