Using TriplePlay with Pro Tools (Windows)

While the latest version 1.2 release of the TriplePlay software is AAX-compatible and can therefore be hosted within Pro Tools, this new feature is technically Mac-only as of right now. There is an issue within Pro Tools on Windows machines where the ports are not allowed to be shared once they are opened by Pro Tools, which prevents the TriplePlay controller from pairing with the receiver. Hopefully, Avid will be able to address this soon and release an update. In the meantime, if you want to host TriplePlay within Pro Tools on a Windows machine, there is a workaround.

Pro Tools 11 AAX

  1. Launch the TriplePlay standalone app. This will open the port for TriplePlay.
  2. Now launch Pro Tools. It will not be able to open the TriplePlay control port because it is already open.
  3. Close the TriplePlay standalone app. Now the TriplePlay plugin will be able to attach to the TP control port and everything should work

Using TriplePlay with digital audio workstations (DAW)

There are a variety of ways to use our TriplePlay hardware and software with DAW.  Within each DAW, there are also a lot of different ways the product can be used.  But, there are some basic setups that help get all of the features of our software working within most DAW, which vary from program to program.  Our original tutorial on recording only showed how to setup TriplePlay within StudioOne, which is the partner software we provide with TP when purchased new.

Venerable Fishman TriplePlay guru Matt C has done yeoman duty putting together a series of videos on best practices for a lot more DAW than that, which I think would be of interest to anyone trying to get their own recording rig together using TriplePlay.  Check them out HERE.
