TriplePlay Software for Mac and Windows

The TriplePlay Software is an advanced VST host application for Mac and PC, which is available to all TriplePlay Wireless and Connect users. The software can be run as a standalone application, or from within a DAW as a VST, AU, or AAX plugin. Simultaneously control up to five completely separate VST instruments with your guitar. Layer or divide these instruments across the fretboard, or assign them to a MIDI pedal for additional control.

Fishman TriplePlay software interface and controls

Configure advanced settings like pitch-bend range and dynamic sensitivity for even more subtle expression. If you’re also using an audio interface, you can even add effects to your guitar’s pickup audio from within the software, then layer this audio with synthesizers, orchestral instruments, drums, or any other VI, and control the entire mix directly from a switch on the controller.

SynthMaster One user interface and controls

The TriplePlay desktop software includes thousands of pre-made configuration patches, which allow your controller to interface seamlessly with some of the most popular virtual instruments and plugins, including many freely available plugins such as the East West Play sampler and Native Instruments Komplete Start collections. We’ve even included a fully licensed version of the incredible SynthMaster One by KV331 audio to take your synth performances to the next level.
