I know other’s here have a similar setup having a BeatBuddy, Quantiloop, iRig Pro-Duo, and the iRig Blueboard foot controller. I use the Blueboard for control of Quantiloop for things like starting a track recording, ending a track recording, playing tracks, etc. The one element in this setup I do not like is the iRig Blueboard due to its battery-only operation. I do see that the new Singular Sound Midi-Maestro appears to be a good replacement for the Blueboard, as it does have a power connection and also supports Bluetooth. It seems the Midi Maestro will be a fairly seamless replacement for the iRig Blueboard (Yay! No more battery operation.).
I also did see that Quantiloop supports other MIDI foot controllers. For example, the Behringer FCB1010. But from what I see it does not have Bluetooth connectivity. Other foot controllers available are also in this non-Bluetooth category.
My MIDI connectivity knowledge could be better. Presently the iRig Pro-Duo MIDI IN/OUT ports are connected to the BeatBuddy, using a MID-Sync Breakout cable. And the iRig Pro-Duo Mini-Din is connected to the Apple iPad (for Quantiloop). As stated above, the iRig Blueboard controls Quantiloop via Bluetooth (wireless). So how do I fit a non-Bluetooth MIDI foot controller (i.e., wired) into this setup? Do I need some additional cables (e.g., pass-through)?
