iRig BlueBoard Dev Manual Now Available

irig_blueboardIK Multimedia has released a developer’s manual for iRig BlueBoard, the first wireless pedalboard that uses Bluetooth LE 4.0 to transmit signals to control app functions and features.

iRig BlueBoard uses Bluetooth 4.0 (LE – Low Energy) technology to transmit the actions of its four onboard backlit foot switches, plus its two optional external devices, to any compatible iOS device, Android device, Mac or PC. Initially, this was accomplished by using the iRig BlueBoard app, which worked in the background to convert Bluetooth signals into MIDI data and other control messages.
