NAMM 2014: Fender Stratocaster Looks to the Future
Fender Get Personal
First up, the American Deluxe Strat Plus, which feature innovative 'personality cards', two of which are included with the guitar. Continuing the Stratocaster tradition of simplicity and convenience, these interchangeable cards give you a wealth of versatile pickup and circuitry configurations - effectively 'rewiring' the guitar. But there are no fiddly parts, just insert a card one of the cards into the easy-access compartment on the back, and you've modded your Strat!
The Deluxe Stratocaster HSS Plus Top with iOS Connectivity lets you expand the sonic possibilities further, giving you the option to plug your guitar straight into your iOS device for easy recording, monitoring and editing. These Strats have a built-in USB audio interface, with a superior signal to noise ratio and remarkable dynamic range for a state-of-the-art playing experience.
MIDI and Beyond
The final Stratocaster of the future is Fender's Fishman TriplePlay HSS model. Engage the built-in TriplePlay system which wirelessly transmits MIDI data to your computer to create virtually unlimited sounds with a wealth of performance, composing and recording features. All the software you need to record and edit is available, including IK Multimedia SampleTank 2.5, AmpliTube Custom Shop and Native Instruments Komplete Elements, plus additional software available to download from Notion and PreSonus.
