iRig Blueboard

I have set up presets for my acoustic guitars and my electric guitars in Amplitube for IOS. The BlueBoard makes switching presets and changing banks effortless for live use. It's small size and light weight make it easy to carry in a pocket on my guitar bag. The BlueBoard app makes it easy to connect and customize your setup. Plugging an expression pedal into the BlueBoard allows you to control selected perimeters within a preset in real time. There is a momentary delay when changing presents to compensate for and you have to change batteries at some point but those small complaints aside I am totally pleased with the BlueBoard. I haven't explored this yet but the BlueBoard can be used with other bluetooth compatible applications in the studio or elsewhere.

Awesome with iPad and Amplitube

Received the Blueboard, put batteries in, installed the software on the iPad and it found the board right away. Opened Amplitube and Configured my pedals to turn on and off with the footswitches. Perfect! Then if you change the mode of the midi messages to control messages you can use the 4 pedals to switch between your Amp Combo presets in Amplitube, great for when you want to go from heavy to clean really quickly. Haven't had a single issue with the pedal with connection. Just make sure that your Ipad is compatible as this board uses Bluetooth 4.0 LE.

Great Vlaue

I gig three nights a week and use my iPad Mini in conjunction with Onsong for my set lists, lyrics and chord progressions. It's a little confusing at first but after watching the tutorial on YouTube I was able to set it up and it works perfect and I've had no trouble with it during a gig. Buy it and you won't be sorry.

Needs some help

Used with I pad and I phone. Always connects with the Blue Board app and works as expected with inter-app operations. Problem is the lack of feed back from the buttons. They are almost at surface level and have no click and little travel. If you look at them and toe tap works OK. I use it playing keyboard and have limited board visibility . I found it necessary to extend the height of each button to make it work for me. This makes it look like any other guitar pedal stomp box which iRig should have done in the first place. Don't think I would buy again without looking for different controller. Like the Bluetooth idea but the physical interface is lacking.

Great Idea, but has some bugs

I fell in love with the concept so I pre-ordered one before they came out. I wanted something to work with my Mac and Mainstage playing live. However, not realizing you have to have a newer mac with Bluetooth 4.0 to make it work. But that didn't stop me. I bought a USB Bluetooth 4.0 dongle and it does work. But I had to fiddle with it to talk to Mainstage the way I want it to. Plus you can't save the settings in the Bluetooth app. You have to change them every time I open the the Bluetooth connect app. I thin I was expecting too much from a $99 app.
