More and more musicians are discovering the ease and convenience of being able to carry their entire sheet music collections in digital music reading devices like the iPad and forgoing the bulk of paper scores. The AirTurn BT-105 finally makes the iPad a practical sheet music reading tool for musicians who need to keep their hands on their instruments and their focus on the music.
Use your BT-105 for reading sheet music and lyrics or as a teleprompter. The BT-105 is super-compact and can connect to one or two footswitches. A simple tap on the right footswitch will turn pages forwards, and a tap on the left footswitch will turn pages backwards.
The BT-105 features a power switch, status indicator light, and an internal rechargeable battery with a mini USB recharging port. Battery life will vary, but users can expect up to 100 hours of standby usage. The BT-105 also features automatic Bluetooth pairing with the iPad for easy connections and fast page turns, as well as a built-in de-bounce filter to prevent multiple page turns for each press of either footswitch.
The BT-105 works with a growing number of iPad apps as well as Adobe Acrobat, Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Keynote for Bluetooth-equipped PCs and Macs.
The BT-105 and Airturn's silent proprietary ATFS-2 footswitches are all you will need to make hands-free page turns. The BT-105 is also compatible with Boss FS-5U footswitches.
If you have your own FS-5U or FS-6 pedals, please consult the instructions to make your own patch cable for using with the FS-5U. These instructions can be found under the "Documentation" tab above.
Airturn BT-105 Features:
*Each jack may have a stereo-mono splitter inserted to make 4 ports. Application software must support the additional ports to function.
I'm happy I purchased this. However, frequently the left pedal (turning a page back) doesn't work. The plug needs to be checked to insure it's tightly plugged into the battery. This doesn't happen with the right pedal.
I like the ease of recharging & setting the mode.
Works great. Linked to my iPad first try. Easy to use. This my first time using this type of product and it was nice to have it be so easy to use.
