FIRST LOOK: DigiTech iPB-10 iPad pedalboard – DEMO
Here’s some background information on the pedal. DigiTech’s iPB-10 is a guitar effects pedalboard like no other, for as well as offering footswitches and an expression pedal, it also contains a dock for an iPad. You can use this to set up your ideal rig – choose from 87 pedals, 54 amps and 26 cabinets – though all processing is done in the ‘board itself.
It’ll be available imminently priced at £499.
The iPB-10 allows you to create your ultimate pedalboard, all on your iPad. Design a pedalboard by simply dragging and dropping up to 10 different pedals, in any order, to each pedalboard. You can even add an amp and cabinet to each setup. With 87 different pedals, 54 amps, and 26 cabinets to choose from, your options are virtually unlimited. Simply swipe your finger across the iPad to rearrange your pedals, turn them on and off, or to adjust their knobs.
Traditional multi-effects have given you the flexibility to change the entire configuration of your signal chain with a single footswitch. The iPB-10 brings the concept of presets to a pedalboard. This allows you to save 100 of your favorite pedalboards with the touch or your finger, and instantly recall them with the stomp of your foot. You can have a different pedalboard for each gig, set, song, or even switch pedalboards within a song.
