TriplePlay Connect iOS app is a music creation and performance app that was created to work with the TriplePlay Connect MIDI controller for guitar that installs easily and non-invasively on most electric and acoustic guitars. TriplePlay Connect is the bridge between your guitar and your iPad. Turn your guitar into a whole band. Create and play instruments like a violin or synthesizers from your guitar. Play loops and audio files easily by playing notes on your guitar. Arpeggiate instruments or create chords from single notes on the guitar. Connect to the possibilities.

Needs a simplified, less cluttered interface
This app needs a major overhaul. The interface should take its cues from Bias FX Mobile. The voices need to be far better as well. The guitars and basses sound like they’re from a mid 1980’s Casio keyboard. Also, better integration with other synth apps would be appreciated. This app should act as a MIDI controller on other apps such as iSymphonic, GarageBand etc.

Thanks for the comments. The Connect controller can trigger any synth on the iPad as well as Mac and PC. In addition to that, the app is compatible with AudioBus 3 and has Ableton Link allowing the app to send MIDI data to any AudioBus 3 compatible synth, as well as any AUv3 synth. We will continue to work with the app and add more sounds in the future.
So far, very disappointed
I bought the TP MIDI Controller a few years back for $400 and have sparingly used it because I couldn’t always be around my desktop computer. So when I heard that this app was available, I was ecstatic. Now I could use my iPad Pro with my TP! Yeah!
But not without a few caveats. 1- You need a $40 camera adapter to attach the fob to the iOS device. 2- Fishman hooks you for another $20 for an in-app purchase to unlock the MIDI Controller. Why? No idea! 3- If your experience is anything like mine, good luck updating the firmware. It caused my app to keep restarting before it launched the program. Also, I was stupid enough to buy a sound pack (before updating the firmware) and could not find it anywhere in the app. Also, I had no luck pulling tracks from iTunes. Again it just hung and crashed. I realize this is just version 1 but it needs to get better fast or it won’t last.
The only reason I gave it 2 stars is because it does work and sounds good. The interface takes a while to figure out and response to your guitar is amazing. But what good is it if I can’t start the app!

While the TriplePlay Wireless controller requires a Camera Connection Kit because it is a USB device, TriplePlay Connect controller comes with a Lightning cable with no connection kit needed. The TriplePlay Connect controller does not require purchase to unlock the MIDI functionality, this is only limited to the TriplePlay Wireless controller.
The most recent update addressed a few issues with updating the firmware consistently. If you're still experiencing issues updating the firmware, please contact our customer support team so we may help you resolve it.
Easy, fast, and amazing!
If you’re looking for a real MIDI guitar and don’t want to waste your time figuring out how to make it work, get the TP Connect! It took me less than fifteen minutes to install it on my guitar, download the app, and start playing with it. The app offers lots of fun possibilities. One of my favorite fatures is the ability to combine synth sounds. (the looper is also fantastic). I’d love to see more patches available in the app in future updates. Maybe some Holdsworth inspired ones :). TP connect also works as a MIDI controller! Five stars at least!!!
