Compatible Foot Pedals

Created on:
Updated on:

Music Stand for Android and iOS allows you to control page turns, the metronome, and the audio player using a bluetooth foot pedal or midi device. Most bluetooth foot pedals should be compatible without requiring any special support or updates to Music Stand.

The following are the pedals we specifically know about, though once again, any standard bluetooth pedal should work.

AirTurn Foot Pedal

AirTurn Foot Pedal

There are 2 bluetooth foot pedals that we recommend. The all-in-one PED and the AirTurn BT-105, which is a transmitter can that be hooked up to any footswitch.

At first, the iPad keyboard won't show up when the AirTurn is connected, but if you press the red power button (or Keyboard button on the PED) it will show the virtual keyboard.

PageFlip Cicada and Firefly Foot Pedals

PageFlip Cicada & Firefly Foot Pedals

The Cicada by PageFlip is another great option. The Cicada is an all-in-one unit with more physical switches. You can still plug in your own custom pedals, but since its pedals are already built-in, it's not necessary. This pedal is much smaller than it looks in the pictures, but is still slightly larger than the AirTurn. The physical on/off switch is a great feature as well as the five buttons to choose what keys are triggered by each pedal.

The Firefly is PageFlip's newest premium pedal. It takes the Cicada pedal and incorporates a whole set of features suggested by Cicada users: illuminated pedals, programmable pedal modes, independently programmed external pedals, longer inactivity period before entering sleep mode, wireless and wired connectivity options, ergonomic design, and more heft for rugged use.

With both pedals, the iPad keyboard won't show up when they are first connected, but if you press the current mode button (the one next to the blinking light),  it will show the virtual keyboard.

STOMP Foot Pedal

If you are looking for a rugged bluetooth 4.0 pedal with 9V battery or 9V DC power options, STOMP is a great choice. The pedal is 100% made in America, has a solid metal enclosure, and would make a great addition to your pedal board or gig bag.

STOMP has two solid foot switches and up to four programmable modes, each selectable with illuminated buttons. It even has a USB charging port, in case you need to charge up your tablet or smartphone!

Check out this video for more information on using the STOMP pedal with Music Stand.
