DigiTech today announced its iPB-10 Programmable Pedalboard, the world’s first programmable pedalboard using the Apple iPad is now shipping. By harnessing the power of the iPad, the iPB-10 combines the simplicity of a pedalboard with the flexibility of a multi-effect system.
In conjunction with the iPB-10, DigiTech also announced the availability of the iPB-Nexus app for iPad. This app gives guitar players drag-and-drop pedalboard design functionality. It also includes the My Tones library where users can store and organize presets. Also included is a real-time performance view where users can see each pedal and its settings.
Together, the iPB-10 and iPB-Nexus allow guitar players to design their ultimate pedalboard. Users can drag and drop up to 10 different pedals, in any order, to each pedalboard, and can even add an amp and cabinet to complete each setup. With 87 different pedals, 54 amps, and 26 cabinets to choose from, the number of different guitar tones users can create is virtually unlimited.
“We created the Guitar Multi-Effects product category over 20 years ago with the release of the DigiTech RP1,” said Rob Urry, V.P. Harman Professional Division & G.M. of Signal Processing and Amplifier Business Units. “By introducing the concept of presets to a pedalboard operating paradigm with the iPB-10, we have created an entirely new product category, the Programmable Pedal Board.” Urry continued.
The iPB-10 Programmable Pedalboard allows users to save their setups with the touch of a finger, and instantly recall them with the stomp of a foot. Now, guitar players can have a different pedalboard for each gig, set, song, or even switch pedalboards within a song.
The iPB-10 is compatible with all models of iPad2 and iPad.
The DigiTech iPB-10 Programmable Pedalboard is now available with a suggested retail price of $699.95.
