Fishman TriplePlay Software 1.4 is Now Available

TriplePlay LogoElectric guitars can produce a wide range of tones and sounds right out of the box. An electric guitar’s sonic capability can be greatly extended thru the use of effects pedals and processors. But even with all of the possibilities available in the modern guitar world, it can still be a challenge to make a guitar properly reproduce the sounds of other instruments. Thanks to digital samples and MIDI, keyboard players have had access to a countless number of instrument and synthesizer sounds for decades. And while guitar synthesizers have been around for some time, they’ve only recently become truly useful for most guitarists.

One big advance in guitar-synth technology is the Fishman TriplePlay system. TriplePlay uses a special guitar pickup that translates guitar notes into MIDI and wirelessly transmits that data to a host device which can use that data to trigger digital samples in the same way as a keyboard or digital piano.

Fishman recently announced an update to its TriplePlay software. The company provided details for the update in an e-mail blast:

  • New library folders in the patches window
  • MIDI thru to all plugins and external hardware
  • Multi channel Mono and Single channel Poly modes can be chosen on a pre patch basis
  • Increased patch load speed
  • New graphic interface
  • Improved patch creation and patch editing features
  • Improved plugin stability
  • Improved DAW functionality
