“After experimenting with various MIDI guitar interfaces for the past 37 years, there is finally something that truly works!”  Those are the words of world-renowned guitarist and composer John McLaughlin speaking of the new Fishman Triple Play™ Wireless Guitar Controller, “What I mean by this is that you can really play your guitar with Triple Play and it feels musical, without any bugs or snags.” McLaughlin has been recording and performing with test versions of the device for almost a year, providing Fishman with valuable insight throughout the development process.

Triple Play’s slim and intuitive form factor allows fast, easy setup so guitarists can quickly get to an unlimited palette of instruments and sounds at their fingertips, all with the freedom of wireless control.

Guitarists now have the flexibility to compose with a wide range of instruments while getting full, accurate notation through Triple Play’s interface in order to share music with other band members. Triple Play’s precise note-by-note transcription capability also let beginners learn faster and more intuitively.

On stage, guitarists can use Triple Play to combine their guitar with any virtual instrument or hardware synthesizer to access a wide range of instruments, samples and sounds to expand the depth and impact of live performances.

The easiest way to seamlessly integrate a guitar with a favorite DAW running on a PC, Mac® or iPad®, Triple Play quickly and easily becomes a complete music recording and production tool. Guitarists can build entire arrangements with drums, bass, keyboards, horns, strings, voices and more, all from the Triple Play Wireless Guitar Controller.

Triple Play comes equipped with a Wireless Controller, Hexaphonic Pickup, and Wireless USB Receiver. The Controller and included software works with industry standard DAWs and Virtual Instruments and installs quickly and non-intrusively on any guitar.

The Triple Play system features several “hold” functions such as sustain, looping, and arpeggiators, along with string or fret splits for multiple instruments. Also included are Menu navigation controls for the included software and a Guitar synthesizer volume control. A Guitar, Mix, Synth switch is easily accessible during performances.

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). Triple Play’s powered USB Wireless Receiver interfaces with computers or iOS devices. The system comes with a comprehensive Windows, OSX and iOS software bundle to get users started.
