Ill let you know when I re-investigate the included sound banks, which I really haven't spent time with yet, though Im told they work much better. Its been several years since I've been a guit synth dude, but I remember that i turned off the chromatic state, optimized my tracking for pitch bend and that took care of some but not all issues. personally I think the ideal instrument for tracking guitar synth stuff, is a guitar with more mass and sustain, preferably without a tremolo bar, That being said I have always used a light weight strat style guitar because I like that the whammy bar can be used as a pitch wheel , and I like a comfortable guitar, however I favor big chunky amble ore maple and rosewood necks as I believe the extra mass in the neck gives more sustain and helps cure note yodeling glitches.

Hi Bill,

I tried both sound sets and VI in a DAW. Latency was no better with the internal sound bank.  The best results were with a VI synth plugin.    I forgot about adjusting the pitch bend setting, I’ll take a look next time. I literally wasted my entire time setting up the wireless, and had no time to tweak the additional stuff.

Charles are you using the included sound bank or attempting to drive a mother synth engine, from say, the sound bank in Ableton Live? I have been setting one up for a friend as well and the included sounds, which  according to Danielt Thomas,is where the real development money was spent, and are much more optimized to track guitar and less prone to the issues you described, Does this ring true for you? Tip for guitar synth users set your pitch bend to 12 semitones if you want guitar like response. Any sound that is chromatic will give you nothing but trouble handling glissandos and vibratos.

I have been helping a friend get his set up and running.  It took a second to get throughout the “coupling”  of the device to the receiver.
Once it’s set up it works pretty well.. 

Bottom line: Everything that has ever sucked about MIDI guitar is still rampant on this thing.
Doesn’t track vibrato.
Very picky about tuning (plenty of semitone “accidentals” spontaneously generated).
Latency Latency Latency.

Wondering if anyone here has tried the Fishman TriplePlay and curious about opinions on this product.
