    Using my iPad along with the Airturn means I never miss a lyric, and it's so much easier than the old days of flipping through loose pages.

      I love Airturn. Because we have a bi-lingual group in Baja Mexico it is so easy to mix up a word or phrase, but with Airturn, it all gets a lot easier. And if someone from the audience decides they are about equal to Taylor Swift, they can do a little sing along and it makes it much easier if everyone is singing the same words. I have used this system with OnSong now for over 6 years and it is so easy with the pedals, stands, Easy Gig. Traveling bands who visit us are always blown away with our equipment.

        I use my Air Turn pedal with my iPad Pro to turn pages on all gigs and practice sessions. It is great!

          I am a bass player and love using Airturn. I currently don't have my own so winning this contest would be awesome. I do , however , have several contractors who I work for that use Airturn. All I do is connect it to my iPad and I am ready to (rock and) roll

            I play trumpet in the master's University Orchestra, Wind Ensemble, and Jazz ensemble. I play guitar, piano, drums, and vocals for my church worship band. I have used my dad's air-turn pedal numerous times, but I don't have my own. It has been super helpful to use digital music especially when songs are more than two pages. Air-turn also let's me be prepared to play music at anytime without having to lug around any hard copies of songs.

              I play electric guitar, acoustic guitar and bass at two churches in the Ottawa Canada area.

              I have two Airturn BTS200-S6 pedals for the following:
              • OnSong iPad app for song charts (chord-based)
              • ForScore iPad app for PDF orchestral sheet music
              • BiasFX iPad app for practice at home
              • Helix Native Windows app for practice at home

              When I play live I use:
              • American Strat
              • American Tele
              • Gibson Custom Shop ‘59 Les Paul VOS
              • Taylor 814 CE Deluxe
              • Pod HC500 or ‘77 Fender Princeton Reverb with several discrete pedals..

                I don’t have an AirTurn (yet), but I plan on getting one soon. I play a smooth jazz solo act with tracks, as well as with several ensembles, including our band, Funkasaurus Tex. More and more of my gigs require reading charts, so having a device that will pair with both my iPad and my Kindle Fire will be perfect.

                  I have just purchased the Duo BT-200. I am using it with an IPAD and ONSong . I am starting a Bluegrass band With a couple other friends. I wanted the Duo BT-200 so I can turn pages on the IPAD and not have to rely on a book with chord charts and words.A friend recommended the Airturn Duo BT-200 and I saw him using it. It was so slick that I was sold on the idea, so I have looked around on the internet and this jumped out at me as the best combo of hardware and software. Here are a couple of pictures of my setup. Not shown is my 2005 Martin D-28. Our band name is Parlor City Ramblers. I am eager to get this into a live event. Thanks for a great product!!

                    I am a pianist and an organist. Mainly playing for religious concert and Catholic Mass. I use my AirTurn devices with my 2 iPads to for Dual Page view at the same time.

                    When I am at the piano,I choose to use AirTurn PEDpro (or BT-105 with 2 Pedals before) to turn pages. Sometimes I will assign the right pedal to forward page and assign the left to activate functions like audio playback,sending MIDI messages.

                    When I am at the organ with my hands on the manuals and feet on the pedal,I use the BT-105 with a Tongue Switch to forward page. It’s super cool and convenience having this switch for playing organ. It always attracted people’s attention for me having a wire from my mouth to my pocket. 100% of those who came to me learning about the wire feel amazing for such a helpful gadget turn page in this ways!

                      I'm a worship pastor who leads using Airturn pedals to control OnSong, to drive charts, click track, pads and loops for the rest of the band. Currently my main Airturn unit is a Stomp 6 XL which I've modified by adding a larger arcade style power button (I had a launch edition version of the pedal that had a particularly weak button that broke, so it needed something more robust). I use the Airturn to toggle pads/loops, toggle click tracks, tap tempo for click tracks, scroll pages left/right and scroll down as well. Lately I've also been experimenting with OnSong controlling my pedalboard via wireless MIDI, so changing charts with Airturn actually changes the settings on my pedalboard too, making everything seamless for transitions between songs.
                      Here's the pedalboard setup with the Airturn Stomp 6 XL:

                      I also use either the Stomp 6 XL or my original BT-105 Airturn pedal for smaller acoustic sets, either as a simple page turner or to trigger pads.
                      Here's that setup:

                        I have the AirTurn DUO BT-106. I initially bought it to use with my Microsoft Surface when I play the accordion. If you know anything about accordions, you know that your hands are both pretty busy while playing. The right hand is playing the black and white 'piano' keys, while the left hand is playing the chord buttons. In addition, BOTH hands and arms are pushing and pulling on the bellows. If you don't have that constant pressure or vacuum on the reeds, there's no sound! The AirTurn is the perfect solution to the problem. With the Surface mounted on a stand, and the AirTurn pedal on the floor, it's easy to advance the pages!
                        Also since I'm the substitute musician at Church, if the regular is absent, I scan choir music to the Surface, sit it on the piano music rack and just use the AirTurn on the floor to turn the pages! Voila!
                        Additionally, if I have to fill in as Organist, I scan all of the service's music into the Surface, put it on the music rack and I don't have a lot of big bulky books up there, and don't need to be constantly switching from hymnals to organ music etc. At this point, since my feet are busy on the pedals, I put the AirTurn on the bench beside me and a quick tap with my left hand gets the desired page turn!
                        (incidentally, once before I had the AirTurn and Surface, I had to many books on the music rack, which broke and crashed during the sermon! With no place to put the music, I kind of had to hold it with my left hand and play with my right hand and foot pedals!) Thank God for the AirTurn!

                          Hi all, as a gigging sax player my airturn is one of my best purchases ever! Use it on every gig with my iPad Pro 12.9 and my BOSS VE-20 (even tho it’s a ‘vocal’ processor, it works great with any brass/wind instrument)

                            I play violin, mandolin, and guitar. I've been using Airturn pedals for sheet music as well as chord charts. At acoustic gigs it's just the iPad and Airturn. At band gigs it's a small pedalboard with an Airturn triggering song changes on the iPad in Onsong that then trigger patch changes on my HX Stomp and Eventide H9.
