Fishman has released TriplePlay Connect, a MIDI controller that installs on most electric and acoustic guitars, and allows users to plug into their iPad to create new sounds, instruments, write and record songs and much more.
TriplePlay Connect is designed to be the creative bridge between a player's guitar and their iPad. A user simply downloads the free TriplePlay Connect iOS app from the App Store to discover and interact in a universe of new musical possibilities.
Designed to inspire and engage with a guitar in a whole new way, TriplePlay Connect empowers anyone to play and control virtual instruments, perform songs and share them online, create, share and play loops and audio files, or turn their guitar into a whole band.
When the TriplePlay controller, app and guitar are combined, users can blend virtual instruments, add effects, generate complex rhythms, trigger loops and audio file backing tracks, create loops from multiple instruments, add personal loops and audio files from other projects, record performances and share them online with friends.
TriplePlay Connect also works as a MIDI controller for Mac and PC apps and sound libraries. Features include easy and non-invasive installation on any 6-string guitar; low-latency pitch tracking technology; and easy connections. Sound libraries can be easily expanded with in-app purchases. It also can be used with Garage Band to add effects to TriplePlay Connect sounds.
The TriplePlay Connect includes a controller, an easily mounted hexaphonic pickup, lightning and USB cable for connection to iPad, magnetic mounting brackets & hardware.
Designed to open a world of sound and creativity in making music, TriplePlay Connect lets players at all levels have fun and rediscover the guitar in a whole new way.
