Thank you all so much for taking part in the contest, I wish I could give a pedal to you all. Please make sure you subscribe to the blog, as I'll be doing more giveaways in the future. I've got a short video review coming next week with a slight modifications to the airturn system.. guitar players are going to love it!
If you can't look the pedals while leading and if you control the page turns for everyone, why not delegate that job to someone else that can do that without worrying about the whole sanctuary and what's going on with everything? I understand it would take a lot of faith to give that job away since you would be losing a lot of control but maybe it's worth looking into!
@timobateman thats great for when I'm working with a team, but what about the days that I am leading alone somewhere... I've purchased 2 Boss FS5U pedals ($25 each) and plugged them into the bt105.. and it works perfect.. they actually sell a version on the airturn site that has the FS5U pedals.. and Hugh (the creator) actually told me after the review, that they have a version that is geared more towards guitarists.. and before he told me that, I actually mentioned in my original cut of the video, the fs5u option.. but it didn't make it into the final review video.. as it was too long for youtube.. I'm going to post a video soon about the fs5u option
Looks like a good pedal, but I really don't get the cables sticking out the back, strange design choice!
@LeeJH Wow.. The fs5u is a lot cheaper than I expected.. Just ordered 2 from my local music shop.. $28 each.. I'm pumped!!
@chriswtburke Nice! So can you buy the transmitter on its own? Otherwise that's nearly a $200 foot controller, and based on your review you're paying a premium for their silent pedals.
@chriswtburke I had a look and Amazon over here sell just the transmitter for almost half the price of the whole unit. Would still rather win one though!
@LeeJH No.. I haven't been able to find the transmitter on its own.. But they do sell a bt105 with the boss pedals which they say is more geared towards guitarists.. It's about $20 more than the one I reviewed.. I'm able to do the transmitter and 2 fs5u pedals on the cheap because my bt105 was free..
@LeeJH with that, depending on the pedal board you use.. You could actually store the transmitter under the board, and hide the cables altogether.. Uh oh.. I'm excited now.. I feel a dent hitting my credit card!!!
@LeeJH One thing I didn't mention in the video is (ad I may do this) you can buy 2 boss fs5u pedals and plug them into the transmitter.. That would get rid of the issue of worry about pedals pushing, but they are a guaranteed push when you step.. AND the fa5u are a great addition to any pedal board
Nice review, I noticed that your clock is running backwards!! I assume you inverted the video? One thing that might be worth mentioning... I don't have either of these, but really want one so PLEASE correct me if I'm wrong...the PageFlip will disable the onscreen keyboard on the iPad, but the AirTurn will not, is this correct? This would mean that you can't make any song edits involving the keyboard while the PageFlip is connected.
Hey everyone.please note that I do moderate the entries, so if you, for example clicked "do it" on the "sign up for app guide" but didn't post a link to your screen shot, I will remove the 2 entries you get for doing that. If you tried to sign up, and it errored I'm sorry, I cannot make that work.. I've notified airturn, and they say they fixed it. If at the end of the contest, only 1 or 2 people could make that option work, ill drop all the enties for that option, to make it fair. All that to just remind you, please don't cheat.. I want this contest to be fair and honest, so I'll be moderating the entries.
Also, the airturn app guide subscription link appears to be broken. http://spyrie.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/20120702-220020.jpg
Also, pasting tweet link wouldn't work. I'm striking out tonite! https://twitter.com/jeffsomers/status/219948609809039360
@jeffsomers Oh weird.. They changed how the tweet works. I'll look at it tomorrow when I get to the office
@jeffsomers I think I see why it didn't register. It's because you didn't keep the link in your tweet.. You just put my name.. When you click on "tweet" it should have a pre typed message.. Just use that
@jeffsomers You don't need to paste the tweet link.. Rafflecopter knows if you did it.. The only thing you need to link is the screenshot of the email
Good review. Side note - tried to sign up for app guide at AirTurn.com, kept getting error. Not your problem, just an FYI :)
