Andover, MA (February 8, 2012) – Fishman showcased its unique new Triple Play Wireless Guitar Controller technology at Winter NAMM.

Triple Play’s slim and intuitive form factor is designed to allow fast, easy setup so that guitarists can quickly have an unlimited palette of instruments and sounds at their fingertips, all with the freedom of wireless control.

Guitarists now have the flexibility to compose with a wide range of instruments while getting full, accurate notation from Triple Play to share music with other band members. Triple Play’s precise note-by-note transcriptions let beginners learn faster and more intuitively.

Performers can use Triple Play to combine their guitar with any virtual instrument or hardware synthesizer to access a wide range of instruments, samples and sounds on stage so they can expand the depth and impact of live performances.

Triple Play comes with a Wireless Controller, Hexaphonic Pickup, and Wireless USB Receiver. The Controller and included software works with industry standard DAWs and Virtual Instruments and installs quickly on any electric guitar. The system can be easily removed from the guitar because it doesn’t require any permanent installation.

The Triple Play system features several “hold” functions such as sustain, looping, and arpeggiators, along with string or fret splits for multiple instruments. Also included are Menu navigation controls for the included software and a Guitar synthesizer volume control. A Guitar, Mix, Synth switch is easily accessible during performances. A low profile design (less than .5”) allows the Controller to be left on the guitar and still fit in the case. It operates with a rechargeable Lithium Ion battery (included).

Triple Play’s powered USB Wireless Receiver interfaces with computers or iOS devices. The system comes with a comprehensive Windows, OSX and iOS software bundle to get users started.

Triple Play Wireless Guitar Controller is scheduled for release in June 2012.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
