iRig BlueBoard connects to your iPhone/iPod touch/iPad or Mac via Bluetooth, and when you press its foot switches, it sends out control signals that are converted to MIDI by the iRig BlueBoard app. At this point the MIDI messages are available to virtually any MIDI compatible app you're running on your iOS device or on your Mac.
The control messages sent from iRig BlueBoard to AmpliTube or other Core MIDI music apps can include bank up/down, MIDI continuous controllers, as well as parameter changes on apps such as IK's AmpliTube, VocaLive, SampleTank, and iGrand Piano iOS apps plus many others, such as Apple GarageBand.
Control from 10 meters away
IK Multimedia iRig BlueBoard communicates via Bluetooth technology so you can place it up to 10 meters (32.8 feet) away from your device and still maintain full control of your apps. The low-profile iRig BlueBoard is only 9.1-inches wide, and it runs on 4 - AAA batteries.
Because it communicates with the mobile device via Bluetooth, it leaves the 30-pin, Lightning and mini-jack connector on the mobile device free for connection with other IK accessories like iRig PRO, iRig HD, iRig STOMP, iRig, iRig Mic, iRig MIDI, iRig KEYS or any other favorite accessory.
Light up the night
iRig Blueboard has 4 backlit control pads housed in a sturdy stage-worthy chassis. Each pad has an additional LED that lights when the pad is active, letting you know exactly which control is on. And since it’s backlit, you can easily see it on a dark stage or performance venue for quick and accurate access.
IK Multimedia iRig BlueBoard also features two expansion TRS jacks so you can add more expression to your performance. Plug your continuous MIDI controller like wah or volume style pedals into these expansion jacks to add even more control and performance versatility.
Designed by and for musicians
Guitar and bass players, singers and keyboard players will now be able to play and control their preferred iOS app on stage or in studio, with the same degree of performance control offered by traditional music hardware, and the freedom of not being tethered by cables. Plus iRig BlueBoard is small enough to fit in a laptop bag. iRig BlueBoard companion apps for other computer and mobile platforms will also be available the near future.
