Anyone interested in cheap DIY Bluetooth-Pedal?
I'm a DIY enthusiast from Germany and I recently dove into live looping (as a non-musician I can't really show any cool achievments... sry). But I made myself a pedal, which I thought might interest you. I came across this forum and felt that most of you wanted a pedal solution, but were stuck with retail ones with various limitations (too few Buttons, cable bound...).
So here's what I came up with for you (inspired by some other great projects that I need to give credit if i can find them again):
11 Button (22 Actions, could be modiefied to 43 Buttons = 86 Actions) Bluetooth Pedalboard, compatible with any Bluetooth device (tried it on iPad 4 and a Surface (different software though - AmbiLoop... super fun)). All encased in a stainless steel housing, (somewhat steam-punkish though ) and it runs on 2 AAA batteries.
All that for roughly 50€ (= $55) and about 5 hrs of work.
Let me know if you guys are interested, and I'd be very happy to create a tutorial for all you musical geniuses out there.
(Sry, no pics at hand. Will add some later)
