Positive Grid's JamUp Pro XT adds AirTurn Wireless Pedals for iOS Guitar Effects

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.

Anaheim, CA (January 21, 2013) – Positive Grid, the developers of JamUp Pro XT for iOS, is adding AirTurn's (http://airturn.com/) BT-105 pedal controllers to their popular guitar and bass amp and effects processor app. The JamUp/AirTurn is the world’s first of its kind: an iOS Guitar/Bass Multi-FX system with wireless foot switch hardware.

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.

JamUp continues to push the boundary to be the premiere powerhouse amp and effects app on iOS with its newest software revision. JamUp 2.2 adds 11 new amp channels, and the newly developed multi-effects machine will allow 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/output as well as the effect slot.

The AirTurn BT-105 with two ATFS-2 Pedals and Pedal board retails for $119.95; Four pedal AirTurn BT-105 with ATFS-2 pedals retails for $159. Download JamUp XT for free at the iTunes App Store.

A bone nut being back-filed for proper string placement and correct action height.

It doesn’t have to cost a lot to change your acoustic guitar’s tone and playability.

In my early days, all the guitars I played (which all happened to be pre-1950s) used bone nuts and saddles. I took this for granted, and so did my musician friends. With the exception of the ebony nuts on some turn-of-the-century parlors and the occasional use of ivory, the use of bone was a simple fact of our guitar playing lives, and alternative materials were simply uncommon to us.
