DigiTech has announced a new programmable pedalboard and iPad application that together allow a guitarist to replace a floor full of effects pedals. The iPB-10 Programmable Pedalboard “combines the simplicity of a pedalboard with the flexibility of a multi-effect system.” The Audio DNA2 inside the iPB-10 provides no-latency, high-definition signal processing. The iPB-Nexus app lets you choose from 87 pedals, 54 amps, and 27 cabinets. Design a pedalboard by dragging and dropping up to 10 pedals to each pedalboard, then add an amp and a cabinet to complete the design. You can have a complete library of pedalboard definitions, so you can easily switch your setup for a show, between songs, or even within a song. The iPB-10 works with iPad and iPad 2. It’s available now at DigiTech and at retailers, and it has a retail price of $699.95. The app is free in the iTunes store. You’ll need to supply your own iPad.
