From the Press Release:
In celebration of Fishman’s 35 years of Inspired Performance Technology, the company introduces the new TriplePlay FC-1 Controller. With TriplePlay, players can now extend the capability of the award-winning TriplePlay Wireless Guitar Controller and breathe new life into their MIDI gear and performances.
MIDI synths and sound modules can be played wirelessly with a TriplePlay-equipped guitar, eliminating the need for bulky cables and connectors. With the addition of the FC-1 Controller directly controlling the player’s sound sources from the floor, guitarists no longer have to bring their computers to the stage. Three assignable footswitches let users step through TriplePlay patches, change presets on MIDI devices, control Hold and Loop functions and more.
The FC-1 Controller features a bright, graphic display that shows patch name and number, plus a useful selection of status indicators, including MIDI activity, TriplePlay battery level, and the position of the Guitar/Mix/Synth switch on the controller. It also provides access to the TriplePlay built-in tuner and allows easily routing of a guitar’s pickups through the integrated relay switcher to enable mixing of guitar and MIDI sounds.
The FC-1 also connects to a DAW as a USB peripheral, extending the functionality of the TriplePlay software by providing stomp-box style footswitches, expression pedal input, and a class compliant MIDI interface. Using the included Mac/Win utility software enables users to customize the footswitch functions to suit their needs.
Ready for use right out of the box, and housed in a smart, road-ready design, the TriplePlay FC-1 Controller is ready to become the center of anyone’s live or studio rig.
The TriplePlay FC-1 Controller is a wireless host for the TriplePlay Wireless MIDI Guitar Controller that features three programmable foot switches, MIDI In/Out, Relay-switched 1/4 inch Guitar In/Out, expression pedal Input and a 192 x 64 backlit graphic LCD display. Patch manager software included.
