PageFlip Butterfly - Bluetooth Page-turning Pedal

Next-gen Compact Wireless Page-turning Pedal

If your device is equipped for Bluetooth and your app responds to common key commands, then you can control it with the compact PageFlip Butterfly wireless foot controller. It's the perfect way to navigate sheet music, chord charts, or lyric sheets, all without taking your hands off your instrument. Its impressive efficiency provides you with 200 hours (approximately 200,000 page turns) of continuous use on just two AA batteries. In other words, it's unlikely your batteries will die mid-set. At the same time, the Butterfly borrows the totally silent pedal mechanism from its big brother, the Firefly, so it's as discreet as it gets.

Near-universal platform and app compatibility

Chances are, if you use keyboard-compatible music sheet apps, then the PageFlip Butterfly will work for you. You get the choice of three different control modes, PageUp/PageDown, Up/Down arrow, and Left/Right arrow, which provide compatibility with the best-loved music display apps out there. What's more, Bluetooth wireless connectivity makes the Butterfly universally compatible, allowing it to control software on Mac, Windows, and Linux computers, as well as iOS and Android devices. While the sheer flexibility of computer platforms makes the desktop applications too numerous to list, here are lists for compatible mobile apps.

  • forScore
  • OnSong

Built to satisfy customer demands

Sweetwater's unique relationship with our manufacturers gives us a behind-the-curtain view of many of our manufacturers. One of the things we appreciate most about a company is when they listen to their customers and implement user-requested features. The Butterfly, which is the successor of the popular PageFlip Cicada, is an excellent example of this. Cicada users asked for a more substantial controller, so PageFlip added some heft to the Butterfly and made the housing even more rugged than before. It also features an extended inactivity period (30 minutes) before entering sleep mode.

PageFlip Butterfly Bluetooth Page Controller Features:

  • Compact and reliable Bluetooth controller for music display apps
  • Ideal for digital sheet music, lyric sheets, and chord charts
  • Dual-pedal design lets you easily advance and back up pages
  • PageUp/Down, Up/Down arrow, and Left/Right arrow modes available
  • 2 AA batteries provide 200 hours of continuous use
  • Includes user-requested 30-minute inactivity sleep mode
  • Firefly pedal mechanisms deliver perfectly silent operation
  • Heftier and more robustly built than the original Cicada

Page Flip Butterfly

I love the Butterfly. I was using the Cricket and it was okay but kind of flimsy. I hesitated to get the butterfly because of that. I read a few reviews and they said that the butterfly was very sturdy. I took a chance and got it. I am very happy I did. It is solid, very responsive and so far, I haven't had to change batteries and I use it all the time. The cricket used to suck up batteries like crazy. this one is great. I highly recommend the Butterfly.

Works as expected. I

Very nice

This is my 4th blue tooth page turner, and my favorite. I had a Firefly which died after many years of faithful service. A Cicada which is still running (years) at my biweekly gig with gear that resides there, and an appreciable upgrade from the Firefly, I thought. I tried the little (and incredibly cute) AirTurn, which was acceptable but was a little to small & and slideable. And I decided I do like some detectable movement under my foot so I know I've engaged. The Butterfly, a few weeks in, is the best yet. Stays put better. Works consistently whether I'm in boots or tennis shoes or sox (or barefoot, of which the AirTurn was not a fan). Nice job, PageFlip.

Excellent device

This page turner works great with forScore. It is better than the predecessor, the Pageflip Cicada. I compared it with the Airturn Duo, which is also a good device (and has the advantage of being thinner and more compact). For me, however, the PageFlip works better because the Airturn requires a firmer press with the foot to turn the page. Sometimes with the Airturn I would press but nothing happened because I didn't press hard enough. I have had my new Butterfly for only a few days, but I am very happy with it. I will also mention that Sweetwater has been great to work with.
