Fishman showcased its unique new Triple Play Wireless Guitar Controller technology at Winter NAMM, earning a Best In Show Award in the “Companies To Watch” category.
Hourly demonstrations by guitarist Burr Johnson drew large crowds of attendees, artists and media to the Fishman exhibit eager to see and hear the highly anticipated wireless composing, performance and recording system.
Triple Play’s exceptionally slim and intuitive form factor is designed to allow fast, easy setup so that guitarists can quickly have an unlimited palette of instruments and sounds at their fingertips, all with the freedom of wireless control.
Composing With Triple Play
Guitarists now have the flexibility to compose with a wide range of instruments while getting full, accurate notation from Triple Play to share music with other band members. Triple Play’s precise note-by-note transcriptions let beginners learn faster and more intuitively.
Performing With Triple Play
Performers 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 on stage so they can expand the depth and impact of live performances.
Recording With Triple Play
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 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 on any electric guitar. The system can be easily removed from the guitar because it doesn’t require any permanent installation.
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.
A Triple Play Wireless Guitar Expander option provides additional connectivity for interfacing wireless MIDI signals to computers or iOS devices. It adds a full function USB audio interface with guitar input, bypass and headphone output, MIDI hardware IN and OUT and support for footswitches to greatly extend Triple Play’s capabilities for recording, performing or composing music.
Triple Play Wireless Guitar Controller is scheduled for release in June 2012.
