That's not what I want to do. I can already do that with the Roland GK3 pickup.
I want to play the FTP patches without a computer.
You need to describe and explain your concept of ""FTP MIDI patches"
again - Fishman has provided a great Guitar to MIDI controller - and a software bundle ( Native Instruments, IK Multimedia ) that requires a Mac or PC to make those Native Instruments, IK Multimedia sounds
But there are zero hardware sound engine provided even with a FC-1 - thus my confusion for what you mean by "FTP MIDI patches" ??
And shows a basic fundamental confusion on what the Tripleplay does and does not do The basic functions of the FC-1 are:
* Provide a USB Host to 5 pin MIDI Interface for the Tripelplay wireless USB dongle - so you can trigger your favorite third party 5 pin MIDI hardware synth with your guitar
* Provide some foot control,and expression pedal control for your computer running the FTP app and triggering soft synths
At NAMM , Fishman demonstrated triggering a Waldorf Blofeld with the Tripleplay / FC-1
Again the resulting sounds were from the stock Blofeld presets - not ""FTP MIDI patches"The Tripleplay + FC-1 makes no sounds on its own.
If the Roland GR20 isn't a suitable MIDI inteface to do that then what is ?
Technically in this discussion, the GR-20 will be your "MIDI Tone Module" or Hardware synth.
