What is AIRSTEP?
AIRSTEP is an unprecedented foot controller, which can control almost all music-related devices and software around you.
AIRSTEP can control all devices with the MIDI interface. It can also control devices with a footswitch(TRS) interface, like some pedals and amps without the MIDI interface.
AIRSTEP can wirelessly control software on mobile phones, tablets, and computers via Bluetooth MIDI and HID. Like effect software, Plugin, DAW, etc. It can even control the play/pause, backward and forward of YouTube guitar lessons, page-turning of the music score, completely freeing your hands!
AIRSTEP has 5 footswitches, and can wirelessly expand 5 more footswitches by AIRSTEP Lite. It is capable of sending up to 8 different messages per switch.
All functions can be easily set by the AIRSTEP APP. Programming and editing isn’t your thing? Just load any of the massive online presets with just one click, truly plug and play!
AIRSTEP is powered by a built-in rechargeable battery, no external power supply is required. Its compact footprint and sturdy metal casing are built to meet the most stringent environments faced by musicians.
Comprehensive MIDI Functions
AIRSTEP has a comprehensive and powerful MIDI control function. From 2 5-Pin MIDI interfaces to USB and Bluetooth MIDI interface, It can control all things related to MIDI, whether it’s hardware or software. It can be placed everywhere you want, to rule your home studio and live gig, with its compact size to put in your guitar bag or backpack.
AIRSTEP can send all types of MIDI messages: Control Change, Program Change, Note On/Off, SysEx, System Real-Time, etc. It can send up to 8 different MIDI messages with just one press, or release, or long-press. All of the messages can be easily edited by the AIRSTEP APP. You can edit and save your own presets, there is no limitation of the preset amount in the APP. When you need to use them, just one click to load and enjoy! Moreover, massive online factory presets have been built into the APP and will be kept updating. So, if you don’t want to program the MIDI, you can also find most of your needs in these online factory presets.
AIRSTEP also has a powerful MIDI forwarding function. It has a 5-Pin MIDI input interface, also Bluetooth, and USB MIDI inputs. All MIDI input messages can be forwarded to any MIDI output interfaces. This means if you plug in your traditional MIDI controller to AIRSTEP’s 5-Pin or USB MIDI input, it can forward to Bluetooth output. Therefore, AIRSTEP could “cable-free” your traditional MIDI controllers. AIRSTEP can also forward MIDI messages from your computer or mobile phone to your hardware effect to switch presets, then you can use your DAW automation to wirelessly control your hardware effects.
Be Your Computer Keyboard
AIRSTEP can send HID messages to mobile phones, tablets, and computers. HID messages are messages sent by the computer keyboard, so you can use it as a wireless keyboard placed on the floor. You can assign any key of the keyboard to AIRSTEP’s footswitches.
When you are playing guitar while watching YouTube lessons, music scores, covering songs, or recording with DAW, you always have to stop and use your hands to click the keyboard or screen. Now, free your hands with AIRSTEP! You can also use it to control the phone’s video or camera functions. What if you don’t have enough hands when you playing a game? With AIRSTEP, use your feet!
What a keyboard can do, AIRSTEP can do it all. Also, up to 8 different HID messages can be sent by one press, or release, or long-press.
5 Footswitches And 5 Wireless Footswitches
AIRSTEP has 5 footswitches, each footswitch can send up to 8 different messages to the specified output interfaces at the same time, and the output message type can be any combination of MIDI, HID, and traditional footswitch messages.
AIRSTEP has 3 trigger actions of footswitch: press, release, and long press. Each trigger can be assigned different message outputs. You can short press the footswitch to toggle the delay, long-press the same footswitch to change presets, or you can press and hold to enable the boost, and release to disable it. Footswitches can also be set as toggle mode. In toggle mode, the first trigger and the second trigger send different messages. All these parameters can be easily edited and saved by the AIRSTEP APP.
If 5 footswitches are not enough for you, you can pair AIRSTEP with AIRSTEP Lite wirelessly, then AIRSTEP + AIRSTEP Lite = 10 footswitches = AIRSTEP Combo. In Combo Mode, AIRSTEP Lite works as the extension footswitches of AIRSTEP, and the extended 5 footswitches have the same functionality as AIRSTEP. Because they are wirelessly paired, AIRSTEP Lite can wirelessly control all devices connected to AIRSTEP!
