TriplePlay Software Updates

TriplePlay Software Updates

In the Current TriplePlay Release section below, you will find the latest release of the TriplePlay Software. Should the unlikely need arise, we have also provided older versions for your convenience. Please Note: Loading older software versions over current installations may result in the loss of data, i.e. patches. For best performance, we recommend that you always use the latest software version.

Current TriplePlay Release

TriplePlay v1.4 (BETA)
TP Firmware: 2.31/1.85
FC-1 Firmware: v1.03
TriplePlay v1.4 is compatible with Windows 7 and above, and OS X 10.8 and above
This version supports the FC-1 TriplePlay accessory
This software is still in beta and may have system specific bugs, though our testing has not revealed anything thus far. This beta release replaces the FC-1 release v1.3 and has proven to be more stable than the original v1.3 release.

  1. Download and run the SampleTank3 installer (see links below).
    If you have already installed Sampletank 3, REINSTALL WITH THE LINK WE HAVE PROVIDED TO GET THE LATEST RELEASE, which addresses bugs that existed in the older Sampletank 3 version.
  2. Authorize Sampletank 3 using the IKMultimedia Authorization Manager, which should already be installed on your computer, but if not the Authorization Manger can be obtained at the IKMultimedia website.
    Link: IK Multimedia Account Manager Website
  3. Plug the TriplePlay receiver into the computer, or the FC-1 if you own one.
  4. Start the new TriplePlay application.
  5. The firmware installation may fail sometimes, which will cause you to restart the Tripleplay application and wait for the firmware prompt to retry the firmware update.
  6. In some cases you may need to update Kontakt Player. (see links below) Note: If you plan to update to the latest Kontakt v5.6, understand that Native Instruments has dropped 32-bit support, so the latest version will only run with TriplePlay in 64-bit mode. If you run TriplePlay in 32bit mode, any factory preset that is using Kontakt will be shown in red, and can not be opened.
  7. The update should be complete
