    Not necessarily. It is used to tongue three notes together, which commonly would be triplets. But you could envision a 4/4 rhthm where three eighth notes are tongued (tripple) with the third eigth note tied to the fourth, with a repeat pattern

    d d d_d d d d_d OR even cooler the pattern: d d d_d__d d d d__d d d d_d

    In general the triple tongue pattern is for fast triplets
