Limitless Control of Virtual Instruments

Use Fishman’s advanced VST software to create and control your favorite virtual instruments, up to five simultaneous instruments, or split the instruments across the fretboard in limitless combinations. Connect your guitar’s output with an audio interface to blend amps and effects with virtual instruments while you play.

Easily attach the TriplePlay Wireless controller to nearly any electric and acoustic steel string guitar and play MIDI-controlled synthesizers and virtual instruments, adding limitless control to your performance, on stage or in the studio.

The World’s Fastest and Most Accurate

TriplePlay Wireless’ hex pickup and onboard hardware provide the world’s fastest and most accurate real-time Guitar-to-MIDI experience. Perform flawless tracking of your guitar with any other instrument, real or imagined. Our new hand-position technology eliminates ghost notes. Chords have never been easier!

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. 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.
