IK Multimedia has introduced iRig BlueBoard ($99) – a foot pedal Bluetooth MIDI controller designed to work with AmpliTube or any other Core MIDI-compatible app.

iRig Blueboard can be used to send program, bank and other MIDI messages. Two inputs are also provided for connecting any standard expression pedal/switch.

iRig BlueBoard is powered by standard AAA batteries and designed to be portable enough to fit in a laptop bag.

Pricing for the iRig Blueboard is to be announced. Available Q2 2013.

  1. Everything except it needing to be powered by batteries. I understand the idea behind bluetooth, but I dont see the Risk vs Reward balance for having something like this go dead in the middle of a performance. I rather read something like …”with built in battery charger and power adaptor for when your in your studio”

  2. Ooh, too expensive at $99, but bring on the goodies of NAMM, yes please! :D

    And while you’re at it IK Multimedia, please, please bring out a version of the iRig MIDI (the best standalone compact MIDI interface for iPad/iPhone because it CHARGES your iDevice while you play!) that has USB !!

  3. iRig MIDI is not the only interface capable of charging your iDevice. For example, the Tascam iU2, and it’s a MIDI *and* audio I/O interface.
