Free iPhone app from Boss allows you to store pedal settings
(Dave Molter | Posted 2010-09-20)
Maybe a careless roadie dropped your pedals. Maybe a mischievous teenager broke into your practice room and turned all your knobs. Or maybe you just plain forgot the order in which you connect your pedals and your favorite settings. Whatever the scenario, you no longer need to remember complex settings from multiple pedals thanks to a FREE iPhone app from Boss.
The BOSS Pedal Sketch for iPhone is an easy-to-use applet that allows you to save the connection order and knob positions of your BOSS compact effect pedals. You can also import pertinent sounds and photos from your iPhone mic and camera as Memo data. BOSS Pedal Sketch is useful for recreating your pedal settings at live performances. Download free from the Apple App Store.
• Apply effect settings!
You can enter your own settings on the effect board in the app. You can use this in any number of ways including recalling the settings for each song you will be performing or storing the settings of your favorite artists. You can also easily change the order in which your effects are connected on the board.
• Store detailed knob settings!
Tap on a knob on the screen to enlarge it. You can also save your favorite knob settings.
• Record sample sounds and import images!
You can record your original sounds using your iPhone's built in microphone.
And because you can also import your photos, you can handily store photos of your live performances or your amp settings.
• Search product information and listen to sample sounds!
