Been a lot of discussion about it since last NAMM but I'd love to see a vid of it in action at NAMM!

I will have a video demo up on youtube in a couple days.

Very Very impressive.

I talked to Larry Fishman who said
June 2012 release date and internal kit version will be available too.

From Yahoo MIDI Gropup:

"I am still at the NAMM, but let me answer to some of the questions raised
here:

>> You'll need one of these for each guitar you have.
1.) The whole system clips on the guitar with a magnetic fixture, something
like the power connector of a MAC laptop, so changing from one guitar to the
other will be a matter of a few seconds.
2.) For a 13 pin system you need a GK-2 compatible pickup for each guitar.
It costs almost as much as the whole system here, so even if you have
separate sytems for each guitar it is much less investment than having 2 *
GK-2 + 13 pin cable + an AXON or ROLAND.

I deleted some messages, but I remember remarks like that:
>> "it looks like a toy"
The palm-size box which looks like a toy contains more than 1000 times
higher processing power than the original AXON.

>> Does it have fret, string and pick splits like the AXON?
It does not have pick splits, but fret splits and string splits are much
more flexible. While in the AXON the corners of four segments meet each
other in one common point, here two such points can be defined
independently, one for the lower splits and one for the upper. This means
that the lower and upper splits can overlap, even fully cover each other as
two layers, and the string split of the lower and higher range can be
different. This is possible because the lower and upper splits are
transmitted on separate MIDI channels, the lower on 1...6, the upper on
11...16. Burr used these features extensively in his demo.

Andras Szalay"

"Like Andras said, there are layers and independent splits for each. Burr stressed that in his demo. No pick splits.

And it's not glitch free. There are still glitches, not many, but they happen. Kinda like the Axon itself, maybe a little less.

Mike"

I'm waiting but... without GK-13 converter or USB to 5-din MIDI it would be only suitable for VST. So... nice but I would like to have wireless Midi coveter but still use GR55, external synth... and VST.

Not enough bandwidth here at the hotel, but I will have a `10 minute video demo up tomorrow.

Wonderful product

Good news Elantric!
Do you have an info about planned GK13/MIDI converter for use without computer?

It sure seems interesting to me - what a revolution!  But, I'd like to see a way of pushing data from this to one of my 13-pin devices such as VG-99/GR-55. 

Hmmmm.  Thinking. 

Can anyone measure the height of the control pod the Fishman Triple Play has off the surface of the guitar?  That's kind of what I'm really
waiting for is a lower profile "wart".   I was hoping Roland would release a "GK4" this year with a lower profile box.

Either that or I need to knuckle down and get a RR strat and be done with it.

This sounds REALLY cool, but I don't quite get what they are talking about here.  Are they saying there will be an alternate way of using this if you already have a gk equipped guitar?

Any chance of a group buy ahead of or coincidental with the public release?

Thanks,
James

I'd be up for a group buy even without a discount.  That should be a way to get it as soon as it's available.

BTW, since I'm the village midiot perhaps someone can correct me; but it appears it must be used with a computer?  IOW, is there any reasonable way to drive a hardware synth with it without a computer?

Thanks,
James

Not sure what the "Triple" in "TriplePlay" is meant to imply, but does this unit transmit both audio and MIDI, or just MIDI?  If it's both in one solution, then my credit card is ready.  Otherwise, I'll probably spend another year trying to wring every last drop out of my GR55.

I believe the original prototypes had an audio transmission included, however, they subsequently got rid of it as they wanted this to be an extremely simple MIDI solution for anyone (far less confusing when you've just got one wireless transmission). So, I'd say that if you need an audio transmission, I feel you'll have to stick with the GR55.

Thanks so much for posting that!  I am sooo much more excited for it now....gonna start building up my VST collection so I have tons of sounds by the time this thing drops!  Also, I notices that Burr was using a couple of different foot pedals with the Triple Play.  Were those optional accessories branded by Fishman are was he just using a dedicated looping pedal and a another program change pedal, couldn't tell!

Burr was using a Macbook Pro running Logic as sound source.  He used the Logidy UMI3 foot controller for patch changes, loop on off, etc. within Apple Logic.

There is a Fishman TriplePlay OSX Control GUI app, and I assume a windows version will exist too.

I have covered the Logidy UMI3 foot controller before:

To quote the late great Etta James, may she rest in peace, " At last...."

This is obviously a game changer.

Count me in on a group buy. I have cash right now.

Save it for June 2012 - nothing is going to happen in the retail side until then.

What a demo, Burr really can play !

Amazing tracking, no ghost notes and it's wireless ! It's a present from the Gods of music

I'm thinking right now about firing those great guitar samples that don't sound right played from a keyboard because of the nature of the keyboard itself.....

With this thing, you only need a guitar and a computer to play anything anywhere.....

Yeah wow!  That guy has got the chops!  Unreal!  And the thing kept up without issue.  The drums and the bass/organ were particularly impressive.

So I wonder if Roland took notice because that thing looks like it has the best tracking I've ever seen in a guitar-to-midi device ever.
