These newly created EastWest MIDI Guitar Instruments, from producers Doug Rogers and Nick Phoenix, differ from the current EastWest virtual instruments, which are optimized for keyboards. They have been designed to take advantage of the complex and unique waveforms produced by a guitar’s vibrating strings. These five titles cover a wide range of musical styles and instrument families.
Current Fishman TriplePlay users will notice the EastWest instruments do not have to be loaded six times for each string. EastWest included a system that loads the instruments on all strings at the same time, greatly reducing the computer resources required, and especially if the instrument uses SSL EQ/Compression, Ohmicide multi-band distortion, EastWest Convolution reverb, and/or the EastWest Amp Simulator included in the EastWest PLAY software for each collection. Without this feature some of the more complex instruments would need a super computer to play the instrument. Instead all instruments can now be played on an average system, including laptops. In addition, the EastWest production team, working closely with Fishman's software developers, optimized the instruments for guitar players. Pitch bends, whammy bar, dynamics, etc. all function as normal, and in fact provide a much more organic experience then using a keyboard and mod wheel. The tracking and latency is superb as you can see in the product videos below. The guitar has entered the 21st century with a palette of sounds that are the best available!
"We have been testing MIDI guitar systems for many years, and the Fishman TriplePlay Wireless MIDI Guitar Controller is the best in class," says EastWest producer Doug Rogers. "So EastWest and Fishman worked closely together, re-programming the instruments and making adjustments to the software specifically for the Fishman MIDI Guitar Controller. It all works incredibly well as you can see and hear in the videos we produced for each collection. In fact, it opens up a whole new world for guitar players who have been grappling with decades-old technology. I know many of our users consider themselves to be guitar players first, so they will now be able to compose 'anything' using their preferred instrument, instead of a keyboard."
Fishman founder and president, Larry Fishman states, "The opportunity of collaborating with EastWest is very exciting for not only our two companies, but also for guitarists who are looking to explore new avenues of creativity and sound. EastWest virtual instruments are the choice of top music, film, TV, and gaming performers and composers. We worked with the EastWest team to expand the TriplePlay orbit of guitar-optimized, easily accessed and compatible virtual instruments that will build on the already formidable list of TriplePlay features and benefits."

Fishman TriplePlay Floor Controller
Control the TriplePlay Application. Use the FC-1 to control your TriplePlay Windows or Mac application. Change patches, connect an expression pedal, sustain, loop and hold with the TriplePlay factory and user patches, or reprogram the buttons to send custom MIDI information.
Control External Sound Modules or Keyboards. With the FC-1, you can now use TriplePlay to plug directly into an external MIDI sound module or keyboard, without a computer attached! Simply remove the USB receiver from your Mac or PC and insert it into the TriplePlay FC-1 Controller’s USB host port. The incoming MIDI data is then passed wirelessly from the guitar to the conventional 5-Pin Din output for use with any MIDI-equipped hardware.
Programmable foot switches and expression pedal input. Three programmable switches default to patch selection, hold, tuner access, and TriplePlay sensitivity settings, with the added ability to program each to send a separate MIDI CC as a momentary or latched controller. An additional programmable expression pedal input allows you to control volume or any other MIDI CC as well!
Programmable Hardware Presets. A large graphic LCD displays the currently loaded hardware synth patch. All the hardware patches are stored on the controller and can be programmed with the TriplePlay software so you can load the exact sound you need immediately!
