    Default Under $10 Page Turner Pedal

    Jeremy Choi is an accomplished guitar and ukulele player. He just made this video of self-made sheet music turner for under $10. I thought it is pretty neat . I don't want it to be buried in the link and video forum. I hope it's OK to post it here.

    Absolutely brilliant. I love this kind of innovative thinking.

    This is great Brenda!!!

    You have a good eye for cool stuff

    That's an awesome project. Not only cheap, by simple and effective, and he did not even have to open the keypad or do any soldering...he's very smart!

    I had thought of doing something similar with BT keypad, but using more of the keys, in a larger box to not only do page-turning, but also to control recording and app functions inside Garageband, and other effects programs on iOS (like JamUP Po and ToneStack), but I've not had the time. some day...

    I enjoyed that video a lot.

    Thanks for sharing it.

    I can see the joy in doing it yourself, but if you do not have the materials or materials to do it:

    iRig Blue Turn ($69): http://www.ikmultimedia.com/mobile/p.../irigblueturn/

    AirTurn PED Pro ($69): https://store.airturn.com/products/airturn-ped-pro

    PageFlip Butterfly ($89): https://pageflip.com/collections/pag...ucts/butterfly

    And although slower interface: Flic Button ($35): https://flic.io/shop/flic-1pack

    These are great for pre-made units as a simple page-turner, but the one I had thought of replicating as a DIY project was more like the iRig Blueboard ($99)or the Apogee GIO ($395)...

    This would also let me use my iOS device for other programs such as Loopy, and can allow you to start/stop recording in Garageband and other iOS recording apps, as well as act as a controller to turn effects on or off in apps like ToneStack and JamUP Pro...all controlled by your foot and is most useful for playing live since both hands are occupied by playing the instrument...

    You guys are making it so complicated
    I will stick with my ForScore if I need page turner
    I still prefer paper but they are such a mess. I often ends up with duplicate because I can’t find the first copy!

    Well, if you MEMORIZE all the songs, you dont need that 10 lbs, 5-inch thick, 3-ring binder of music sheets, nor a tablet, nor any foot pedals...

    LOL.

    Not everyone can do it (memorize), but if you can play 2 hrs of songs from memory, I think you would be in great shape in terms of your playing skill, as well as keeping your mind agile...which as we get older, our age is working against us...(alzheimer's, dementia, etc)

    So why not try to prevent these things from taking over, but in a fun way with music?

    I remember that "use it or lose it" used to be a workout/physical-exercise mantra, but it works with your neurological pathways too, and keeps all the music fresh at the top of your mind....

    But, do what every works for you. It's all good to me.

    I don’t remember where I parked most of the time
    I gave up memorizing a song long time ago. As long as I still remember what ukes I own, I am all good !
