If you’re a regular reader of AppleTell (and really, why wouldn’t you be), you know by now that we have plenty of musicians on staff. And like most musicians, we love sharing music, whether that’s listening to it or making it. As such, we want to make sure you know that Positive Grid is adding AirTurn’s wireless BT-105 pedal controllers to their JamUP Pro XT guitar and bass amp and effects processor app.
AirTurn describes the marriage thus:
JamUp Pro XT users will be able to use AirTurn’s two or four pedal BT-105 Bluetooth controllers to switch between dozens of studio-grade amp and stomp box effects hands-free. Each AirTurn pedal can be customized within JamUp Pro XT to perform various functions, from toggling amps and effect switches, to moving between presets, controlling Jam Player’s iTunes song playback functions, triggering various sampler recording and dubbing options, and even controlling the built-in metronome or tapping out the tempo, wireless and hands-free. The AirTurn BT-105 features a built-in rechargeable battery that provides power for up to 100 hours of continuous use and works with all models of the iPad, as well as with the iPhone 3GS and up and the iPod Touch. In addition to AirTurn’s two and four pedal boards which are outfitted with their own ATFS-2 silent pedals, the AirTurn BT-105 can be configured to work with a wide range of momentary normally open (NO) switches, such as the Boss FS-5U and the Boss FS-6 dual foot switch.
The promotional video displays it thus:
In addition to adding 11 new amp channels, the newly updated JamUp 2.2 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch brings a newly developed multi-effects machine that allows users to run multiple stompboxes, modulation and delay effects at the same time. JamUp also adds BPM sync for all delay effects, expanded MIDI controls and supports Audiobus as input and output as well as the effect slot.
Back to the pedals, the AirTurn BT-105 with two ATFS-2 Pedals and Pedal board will cost you $119.95, while the four pedal AirTurn BT-105 with ATFS-2 pedals retails for $159.
