Elden Ring player beats Margit while using a harp as a controller
Anna Ellsworth is an accomplished harpist. She managed to turn her tunes into a controller and take down the Fell Omen. Defeating Margit via any method is an accomplishment. She has also gone onto defeat Godrick. Video from YouTube. More details from Kotaku:
“In terms of hardware and software, I pretty much followed a video by technology Youtuber ThioJoeTech,” Ellsworth said. “I’m a professional harpist and often need to amplify my instrument at gigs, so my harp already has a Dusty Strings pickup installed that allows it to be plugged into things, much like an acoustic-electric guitar. So, I plug my harp into an audio interface and then plug the audio interface into the computer. Then, I pull up two programs, MiGiC (which I access through a digital audio workstation…I used to use Bitwig but now I use FL Studio) and Bome MIDI Translator. MiGiC takes the notes I pluck, turns them into MIDI, and sends it to Bome MIDI Translator which translates the MIDI into keystrokes. The computer then recognizes this as if I were playing the game with keyboard and mouse.”
