Fishman Triple Play and Telecaster Install

gpa, 09.02.2014
Having been a wired Midi Guitar Player for over 15 years, I was excited by the prospect of owning The Fishman Triple Play

My first impression was that of a very good build quality of the pick up and controller and well thought out application/instruction to install it to various guitar bodies

Good instructions and all the necessary included tools, was confirmation that it was generally intended to be a very user friendly item to install

I was unaware how much of a challenge it was going to be in fitting it to my Telecaster however and it proved quite difficult with unsatisfactory results at first until after some trial and error, I decided to cut the shape of the carrier for the pick up out of the scratch plate to recess the pick up by 3mm and to also ensure some adjustment for the correct height
This was not a decision I made easily and not for the faint hearted!!

I'm sure not all guitars would be this difficult ...

It did however, work a treat!

The Fishman Triple Play does require careful setting up with the software
The sensitivity of the pick up and the height of pickup in conjunction with the guitars action, makes a huge difference to the overall performance
The software has been a bit frustrating, it seems that you can't return to the Fishman Triple Play software window after using a third party plug window i.e. NI Kontakt without shutting down the NI window first?

Experimentation by actually playing nearer to the bridge pick up got preferable results

I bought the Fishman Triple Play to play horns, in addition to guitar, in a soul band project, but soon realised it has great potential and flexibility as a general midi controller and now firmly accompanies my midi controller keyboard I use for composing

I still can't get my head around that its wireless though, with next to no latency, just the odd rogue glitch which is more down to my incorrect finger positioning and pressure than anything else ... just amazing!!!

I've now bought a wireless guitar set up too which now gives me total freedom on stage, in particular ...

I've yet to find a way to wirelessly control the volume, which I prefer to operate by foot pedal and am currently hardwiring a volume pedal between the computer interface and the PA

I'd recommend The Fishman Triple Play to anyone who is looking to either dabble in controlling their computer generated sounds with a guitar or who might be looking for a guitar midi controller alternative

The Fishman Triple Play is a serious contender in the Midi Guitar arena and gives the competition a real run for their money, especially considering the expandability of sounds

Above all else though, I'm having loads of fun with it!! ...

Pretty nice MIDI controller

EugeneLugovoy, 20.03.2017
Hi everyone! Let me share my thoughts and experience about TriplePlay. First of all, quality of this device is pretty fine; it is doing all declared functions nicely. So, about "good things" you can check youtube videos. I can say about my "dislikes".
1. Tested on x64 Windows 7 Ultimate, Intel Core 2 duo 2.9GHz, RAM 4Gb; x64-based application plays with a bit delay up to 0.3-0.5sec, x32-based app - increadible delay 3-4 seconds
2. MacOS El Capitan, MacBook Pro 3.1, Intel Core2 Duo 2.4 GHz, RAM 2 Gb; x32-based (v1.2.3672) and x64-based (1.4 beta) works pretty fine except some "heavy" instruments (for my old macbook 2007 it's very good); CPU loading up to 15-20% withing the system. But, SampleTank 3 - should be downloaded from Fishman update software website (not from IK Multimedia).
3. I found that picking style should be a bit different from regular electric guitar picking style, it needs more precision and from time to time you can get some "artefact" sounds, possible it needs to play closer to bridge.
4. the only single magnet in package for transmitter, it could be better to have at least 2 for using on several guitars.
All other thing are pretty nice (from installing hardware to enjoing the play)
Hope this is helpful for you to make decision about buying it.
