MusicAppBlog has put together an in-depth review of iRig BlueBoard - "For users of Amplitube or VocaLive, with a sensible balance between price and construction, the iRig BlueBoard is the missing piece of the jigsaw when it comes to taking your iOS guitar (or microphone) out live."
"If you have experience of using traditional hardware multi-effects pedalboards, the first thing that strikes you about the BlueBoard is its very compact format. At around 270mm in length and 90mm wide, it is most certainly mobile."
"To connect your BlueBoard to your iDevice, you simply power up the hardware, launch the app and, once the app finds the hardware, just tap to establish the connection. In my own testing with my 3rd gen. iPad, this worked flawlessly and I had no problems with the connection."
"As you might expect, the iRig BlueBoard integrates very nicely with IK Multimedia’s Amplitube app ... switching between the four presets within an individual preset bank is pretty much instantaneous so you could, if required, easily manage this mid-song."
"Having the two modes of operation – program change and control change – is very convenient and it allows different users to configure the system in the way that works best for them."
John Walden concludes with:
"For users of AmpliTube or VocaLive, with a sensible balance between price and construction, the iRig BlueBoard is the missing piece of the jigsaw when it comes to taking your iOS guitar (or microphone) out live."
