So I have been messing around with using Loopy to help develop some live looping when I play. I struggle though with the hand control and would like ideally a foot pedal, preferably Bluetooth and ideally with more than one switch since I'll need toggle and mute.

Also wondering if there is a way to increase. The volume from the iPad?

Any thoughts?

I think any of the current Bluetooth pedals work fine with Loopy.
I have the iRig Blueboard. I haven't set it up yet but it seems straightforward and easy. Here is a YouTube video setting up the Airturn4 with Loopy.

Lots of ways to increase the volume from the iPad. The simplest would be a 1/8" cable from the headphone jack out to something like computer speakers. Or feed that to a direct box for interface to a PA system or amp. Or you could use an audio interface connected through the lightning connector and then again to another cable to amp or PA, etc.
