IK Multimedia iRig Blueboard

I like it when a product shows up at NAMM and at CES. It is sort of like a mullet…business in the front and party in the back.

OK, it is not anything like that. But if a company has the chutzpah to show a product at both shows…it had better be pretty cool. The Blueboard is tres cool!

The Blueboard is a bluetooth controller that can interface with an iDevice or computer to give you additional controls over the program you are using. Since it is transmitting MIDI continuous controller messages (CCs) any MIDI app that has “learn” functionality built-in can use the Blueboard to control it.

Picture using the footswitch to advance patches, bypass the reverb or kick your lead sound all the way to 11. The buttons even turn a cool backlit blue so you know what is going on!

If you are looking for control beyond on and off, you can attach a standard volume pedal (or 2 if you prefer) to the Blueboard to control your volume, wah or filter sweeps.

You never have enough hands when you are performing and the Blueboard stretches what you can do.

Coming soon! I HOPE IT IS REALLY SOON AS I NEED ONE NOW!!
