The iPB-10 Programmable Pedalboard sets a new standard for guitar signal processing. By harnessing the power of the iPad®, it combines the simplicity of a pedalboard with the flexibility of a multi-effects. The iPB-10 unleashes the ability to create and control guitar effects like never before.
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.
Once you experience the flexibility of the iPB-10 Programmable Pedalboard with its drag and drop design, you will change the way you think about guitar effects forever.

DigiTech press release
DigiTech® Introduces the iPB-10 – the World’s First Programmable Pedalboard Using the iPad®
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah –DigiTech today announced the introduction of its iPB-10 Programmable Pedalboard, the world’s first programmable pedalboard using the Apple® iPad®. By harnessing the power of the iPad, the iPB-10 combines the simplicity of a pedalboard with the flexibility of a multi-effect system.
“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.
In conjunction with the iPB-10, DigiTech also announced the introduction 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. By using the touch gestures of the iPad, guitar players can rearrange the pedals in their signal chain, turn them on and off, or to adjust their settings. 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 Programmable Pedalboard is not simply a dock for the iPad. It uses multiple Audio DNA2™ processors within the unit to provide users with no-latency, high-definition signal processing.
“With the ultra-secure iPad mounting system and the no-latency, high-def processing, we have brought the power and infrastructure of the iPad to bear in live performance situations.” said Urry. “You can count on seeing a long line of enhancements and features available in future upgrades via the Apple App Store.” Urry added.
The iPB-10 is compatible with all models of iPad2 and iPad.
The DigiTech iPB-10 will begin shipping in June 2011 at $699.95 suggested retail price and $499.95 US MAP. The iPB-Nexus app for iPad will be a free app available for download from the App Store.
