Volume 1 of the EastWest MIDI Guitar Series may also be purchased as part of a specially priced 5-part bundle, comprising all volumes in the series.

The recipient of multiple major awards, these newly created EastWest MIDI Guitar Instruments from producers Doug Rogers and Nick Phoenix, differ from other EastWest virtual instruments, which are optimized for keyboards. They have been specially programmed to take advantage of the complex and unique waveforms produced by a guitar’s vibrating strings. These five titles cover a wide range of musical styles and instrument families.

The EastWest production team, working closely with Fishman's software developers, optimized the instruments for guitar players. Pitch bends, whammy bar, dynamics, etc. all function as expected, and in fact provide a much more organic experience than using the instruments with a keyboard and mod wheel. The tracking and latency is superb as you can see in the product videos EastWest produced. Even the sampled guitars are useful, you no longer have to take multiple guitars, acoustic guitars, etc. on the road, but still have access to a vast array of guitar sounds that can be switched with the TriplePlay FC-1 Floor Controller. The other volumes offer sounds that allow you to produce any kind of music you desire, the collection offers every genre imaginable, even inspirational soundscapes and percussion. The guitar has entered the 21st century with a palette of sounds that are the best available!

"We have been testing MIDI guitar systems for many years, and the Fishman TriplePlay Wireless MIDI Guitar Controller is the best in class," says EastWest producer Doug Rogers. "So EastWest and Fishman worked closely together, re-programming the instruments and making adjustments to the software specifically for the Fishman MIDI Guitar Controller. It all works incredibly well as you can see and hear in the videos we produced for each collection. In fact, it opens up a whole new world for guitar players who have been grappling with decades-old technology. I know many of our users consider themselves to be guitar players first, so they will now be able to compose 'anything' using their preferred instrument, instead of a keyboard."

Fishman founder and president, Larry Fishman states, "The opportunity of collaborating with EastWest is very exciting for not only our two companies, but also for guitarists who are looking to explore new avenues of creativity and sound. EastWest virtual instruments are the choice of top music, film, TV, and gaming performers and composers. We worked with the EastWest team to expand the TriplePlay orbit of guitar-optimized, easily accessed and compatible virtual instruments that will build on the already formidable list of TriplePlay features and benefits."
