Yes, that’s right. Fishman is finally shipping the game-changing TriplePlay Wireless Guitar Controller.
TriplePlay presents the best MIDI guitar controller technology the world has seen, expanding the creative possibilities of the guitar for enthusiasts and experienced musicians alike. Adding value to one of the most innovative breakthroughs in music product and MIDI-based technology, TriplePlay ships with a comprehensive suite of full version software from PreSonus (StudioOne Artist), Native Instruments (Kontakt Elements and GuitarRig LE), IK Multimedia (SampleTank and Amplitude Custom Shop) and Notion Music (PROGRESSION 2).
As you’re no doubt aware, TriplePlay is conceived and designed to make composing, performance and recording easy and fun. Its slim, intuitive form factor lets guitarists get to an unlimited palette of instruments and sounds at their fingertips, all with the freedom of wireless control via MIDI. The creative and sonic possibilities are endless.
With TriplePlay and PROGRESSION 2, guitarists can write music in guitar tab or notation for lead sheets and sheet music, and hear it play back instantly with real instrument samples and an audio track of their work. Changes to tab, notation, key or tempo can be made quickly and easily.
Combined with TriplePlay in live performance, Kontakt Elements and SampleTank XE frees guitarists to play with any virtual instrument or hardware synthesizer with faster, more accurate tracking that virtually eliminates lag. Features include sustain and looping functions with support for MIDI footswitches and controllers. A virtually unlimited supply of guitar, tone and effects and amplifier modeling options are available with GuitarRig LE and Amplitude software.
TriplePlay quickly and easily becomes a complete music recording and production tool that allows the guitar to be seamlessly integrated with a favorite DAW running on a PC, Mac® or iPad®. Using PreSonus StudioOne, guitarists can build entire arrangements with drums, bass, keyboards, horns, strings, voices and more, wirelessly. Guitarists can play along with backing tracks to record, enhance live performances, and make practicing easier and more entertaining.
TriplePlay comes equipped with a wireless controller, hexaphonic pickup, and wireless USB receiver. The controller and pickup can be quickly installed or removed on virtually any electric guitar with no permanent installation necessary.
A low profile design (less than .5”) allows the Controller to be left on the guitar and still fit in the case. It operates with a rechargeable Lithium Ion battery (included). TriplePlay’s powered USB Wireless Receiver interfaces with computers and iOS devices.
World-renowned guitarist and composer John McLaughlin has been recording and performing with test versions of the device for two years, providing Fishman with valuable insight throughout the development process.
“After experimenting with various MIDI guitar interfaces for the past 27 years, there is finally something that truly works!” McLaughlin said. “What I mean by this is that you can really play your guitar with TriplePlay and it feels musical, without any bugs or snags.”
Street price for TriplePlay is: $399.95
