With Fishman’s TriplePlay FC-1 Floor Controller, MIDI synths and sound modules can be played wirelessly with a TriplePlay-equipped guitar, without guitarists having to bring their computer to the stage. Three assignable footswitches let users step through TriplePlay patches, change presets on MIDI devices, and control Hold and Loop functions. A bright, graphic display shows patch name and number, plus status indicators such as MIDI activity, TriplePlay battery level and Guitar/Mix/Synth switch position on the controller. The FC-1 also accesses TriplePlay’s built-in tuner and allows easy routing of a guitar’s pickups through the integrated relay switcher to mix 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.
