A Cordless, Battery-Powered MIDI Controller Pickup for Guitar!

The Fishman TriplePlay Wireless Guitar Controller is a cordless, battery powered, hexaphonic or synth pickup that mounts easily and non-destructively on any steel-stringed electric guitar. So take your guitar on a walk -- no cables required -- and simply play to control a synth on your laptop. The TriplePlay has a wireless range of about 100 feet from the USB receiver so you'll have plenty of room to mosey as you explore the versatility the TriplePlay wireless controller adds to your axe. You can always plug in an analog cable to hear your original guitar pickups -- and even mix the two audio streams together right from your guitar.

Wireless MIDI For Guitar

With the Fishman TriplePlay system, connecting your guitar to your digital music setup is a breeze. Just plug the provided USB transceiver into your computer and sync it with the control module on the guitar pickup. Now your guitar will appear on your machine as a MIDI instrument and you can use it to control any virtual instrument in your library. You can even divide your fretboard such that different strings or even different frets control different virtual instruments, allowing you to control an entire miniature orchestra directly from your guitar.

See the Fishman TriplePlay in action:


Compose, Perform, Record

The "triple" in Fishman TriplePlay stands for compose, perform, record -- three operations which have now been unified thanks to Fishman's hexaphonic pickup and wireless transceiver. For example, when connected to your computer running the provided TriplePlay software, notes you pluck on you guitar will appear in real time onscreen on your computer. You can even set the software to automatically transpose notes you play into standard music notation without you even having to stop playing to write down a single note. Three essential music operations which used to happen separately -- composition, performance, and recording -- now all happen simultaneously thanks to the Fishman TriplePlay system. All you have to do is play -- the TriplePlay takes care of the rest.

Product Description

The Fishman 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.

zZounds Expert Review
Some purists may scoff at implementing MIDI in to their otherwise pristine signal path. Hey, I get that, I'm the same way. If I'm modeling my tone, I'll go all out; if I'm tracking on a classic amp worth twice my life, I'll keep it all analog. The Fishman TriplePlay Wireless Controller has impressed me in so many different ways, starting from its ease of use to its pristine note tracking while performing. This simple-to-mount pickup lives between your bridge and your bridge pickup and sends those vibrating strings to a wireless transmitter out to your computer. That's the least impressive part about the Fishman TriplePlay system. Pull this up on your computer and the user-customizable fun begins. Want the bass strings to sound like a classic organ bass line with a little key click? Done. Treble side to be a baritone sax? Gotcha. These are just two simple examples that come included with this loaded package. You get literally hundreds upon hundreds of VST tones to be implemented in your DAW with the included VST bundle, from synthesis to drum sequencing, all the way to notation. This puts a staggering amount of control at your mouse click. Don't let those hokey MIDI tones of decades past put you off, this MIDI controller really impressed me with its spot-on tracking, life-like synthesis and real time versatility with triggering across a number of popular DAWs. Fishman is always on top of their pickup game, see for yourself how the TriplePlay Wireless Controller stacks up with the rest of their line.

Customer Reviews
2 out of 5 (2 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great Idea, but...."
Overall: I have been using a Roland GI-20 with the 13pin cable for a number of years. I purchased this with the hopes of not needing to constantly replace the cable (they are not too "road worthy"). Setup was easy enough, though I had to make some surgical modifications to the pick-up mount to get an appropriate height for an LP bridge. I ended up stacking 2 of the provided spacers. Once mounted, and height adjusted with the fine tuning screw, the adhesive for the spacers did not keep the outer edges attached due to the curvature of the guitar's surface. (Demerit #1). The mounting bracket for the unit should be shipped with replacement screws for the strap button to accommodate the loss of penetration into the body created by the addition of the bracket. I now worry a bit if the strap button will stay put (Demerit #2). Playability: There is significant lag/delay using their plug-in and interface. However, going direct into your DAW and using the unit as a standard controller, the delay is workable. Tracking is OK... (Tracking is much better using my GI-20 due to the many adjustments that can be made on the unit for sensitivity, modes, etc). Manual/documentation: A bit sparse. It's not all in one place. I still can't find where the range distance of the unit's broadcasting ability is stated... Kind of important for a wireless unit, right? Overall: Usable? Yes... But just barely. Good for the studio, but then why do I need a wireless unit for the studio?
