Ibanez Iron Label RGIR20FE with Fishman TriplePlay

Posted on September 9, 2013   

This is my newest acquisition, an Ibanez RG type with EMG pickups. I added a Fishman TriplePlay MIDI pickup so I could use software synthesizers with it. I wanted a guitar that would take me out of the "Stratocastering" mindset when playing around with MIDI. I also needed something that could play fast and had 24 frets. This ax fits the bill. I'm still bonding with it, but it immediately reminded me of my first "real" guitar, a 1990 Japanese-made Ibanez RG760, which has sold ages ago (with much regret). Playing this guitar is like Deja vu, only better.

  • The Fishman TriplePlay System

    September 9, 2013

    I bought this guitar specifically as a platform for the Fishman TriplePlay wireless MIDI pickup. The TriplePlay is a brilliant device. It transmits the MIDI signal from the hexaphonic pick-up wirelessly via USB dongle to your PC or Mac. The software included is very simple to use and there is extremely low latency. I don't even notice it while playing. If you are interested in MIDI at all, I highly recommend checking out the Fishman system. It costs far less than a Roland hardware synth and many of the software synths available sound extremely good, if not better, than what is included in the Roland. Best of all, no 13-pin MIDI cable to mess with. If you have USB, you're good to go.
