iRig BlueBoard - Android/iOS

Post by SiteAdmin » Mon Jun 23, 2014 4:17 pm

Version 2.51 of iGigBook introduces support for the iRig BlueBoard. You will need an iPad or Android tablet that supports Bluetooth Low Energy-BLE. You do not need to use the companion app to use the pedal with iGigBook. iGigBook communicates directly with the pedal in the same way that IK Multimedia's app does. Do not try to pair the pedal with your tablet, that will not work. Just turn bluetooth on and turn on the pedal, iGigBook will detect and communicate with the pedal if you're viewing a PDF page, the flashing blue light at the top right of the pedal will become a steady blue light indicating that a connection has been made and the pedal is ready for action.

Switch A - Previous Page

Switch B - Next Page

Switch C - Previous Song

Switch D - Next Song

Page turning or song skipping is available whenever you are viewing a PDF document.

iGigBook - It's what the pros use.
Now Available For Android Tablets!

The iRig Blue board does not work with an iPad 2. IK Multi Media makes a point of this on their website and all of the materials about the device. The iPad 2 does not posses the necessary hardware to communicate with the blue board.

Thank you for your reply after more reading I found that info . It is harder to find the airturn in Australia than the blueboard which is in stock at the local music shop.

Hi Phil
Is there a way for me to reassign BlueBoard's C and D switches for my own purposes whilst using Switches A and B for turning pages in iGigBook? Or is there a way for me to set up BlueBoard's A and B switches to use CC's to turn pages in iGigBook? I normally use an AirTurn to turn pages but just bought a BlueBoard, hoping to use the 2 extra switches (C & D) for my own purposes.

No, you cannot rearrange what the buttons do with regards to iGigBook.

Ok. Is there a way to configure iGigBook to turn pages in response to MIDI commands?

The iRig BlueBoard doesn't natively send MIDI commands, it require IK Multimedia's companion app to do this. iGigBook was one of the first apps to interact directly with the pedal without the companion app. The answer is no, iGigBook won't turn pages in response to MIDI commands because it interacts directly with the pedal and not the companion app which provides the MIDI functionality.
