Great Value! Works Perfectly.
benash, 09.07.2018
So we are in an age in which technology has got pretty advanced. I use this to control all my effects.. let me explain.

Equipment.
So I have a Fender Supersonic 22 Watt Combo. In the effects loop I have an Apogee One. Thats connected to my iPhone X. The iRig Blueboard Controls the iPhone.

Software
I use Bias FX over Amplitube (purely because Amplitube won't allow you to do what I want). In Bias FX I turn off all the Amp and Cab simulation, and purely use it just for effects. I use the iRig Blueboard software (free download) to connect the iRig Blueboard itself, to my via Bluetooth iPhone.

The iRig Blueboard software is great. You load it up, it searches for you Blueboard, you tap on the button and it connects. Its been flawless since I've owned it. Connects every time, even if in venues where theres loads of different wifi and bluetooth devices around.

Build quality is very good. Id of preferred for that casing to be a bit more durable, but saying that, it would detract from its lightness. Overall though, the build is great.

I highly recommend this if your after a Bluetooth Controller.

OK

Quite useful IF you have the latest bluetooth.
With this, I love to be able to use my mobile apps or perform computer program changes by feet. Otherwise you'd need to stop playing, right?
Connectivity can be improved. Not very straightforward. Also would be good to have a firmware update which may allow to use on older bluetooth too.

Good bang for the buck
sybrgreen, 14.09.2018
I'm using this bluetooth pedalboard with Bias FX running on my iPad pro, for its price works smoothly; the delay of the preset change is often imperceptible while you are playing and overall it is a very versatile and user friendly pedalboard. You can download also its proprietary application on the app store to configure all the settings and to make your device recognize the pedalboard; you can also plug 2 expression pedals to modulate your effects.
It needs a 9 volts battery and the construction quality is not premium, but overall it works well.

crap !

it looks like a good idea, but mine was out of order some days after receiving it (Bluetooth problem). I send it back to Thomann & am waiting since more than one month to have a new one.

Does the job
EricjHughes87, 15.04.2019
This is a great little MIDI controller. I use it with Mainstage for changing patches and tap tempo. Highly recommend.

One con is the blueboard App can be a little unreliable. However, it does have a 'Raw MIDI' mode so the App is not essential.

Great pedal for amplitube setup
Bentrushmore, 23.01.2014
I've got an amplitube iPad setup and this blueboard works perfectly with it, I can change presets with it. I also bought Moog Ep expression pedal with it and now I can program any button or knob to work with it. I play live gigs too. Really nice stuff. Once again IK multimedia has done great.

Cool features, lack of quality.
Mertcan, 30.05.2015
I started to use my ipad for rehearsals and small gigs and i needed a footswitch. iRig blueboard came in to my mind in the first place. Setting it up was really easy, took like 5 minutes. But it looks like a cheap plastic. You need to be gentle when stepping on. But its really great for the money.

Great Controller
25.11.2016
I am using this unit to control Bias FX running on my iPad, along with an expression pedal.

It has two modes, you can use the buttons to change the presets or individual effects units or utility settings like tap tempo, tuner on/off. Moreover, you can enable a mode to scroll through the presets while press&holding on a button, while individually enable/disabling the effect units if you press but don't hold. You can freely set the MIDI options and sensitivity of the expression pedal.
You can set even the backlight intensity of the buttons.
The cons of the products are the plastic casing, and VERY LIGHT weight. Of course I wouldn't have a very heavy item but it is so light that you have to fix it on stage to avoid any accident.
Even though it has some serious disadvantages, it is the best bluetooth midi controller in the market.
