So, is there now any news about windows? At least something informal like "Yeah, we looked at it" or "No, we've been too busy eating donuts" or "No, We are not going to add windows support EVER". That way I can move on.

So, is this what you are going to say every time? Nothing changes? So, really, what you should say peter is that there is no interest by IK to add windows support. Thanks for clarifying! I'll move on! I'll just have to remember not to purchase any IK products in the future. I'll give this irig board to someone that can use it or just trash it. Of course, this being my first ik product is also my last so it should be easy enough to accomplish.

Thanks again! I appreciate your hard work and diligence on resolving this matter!

"no interest" is pretty strong.

IK helped us a LOT getting REAPER going when it was windows only at the time.

I'd love to see it on windows devices, I'd LOVE to see it work with two at a time, hell, I'd love to get my level questions answered about the iRig HD 2, but so far, the Blueboard at least does exactly what it was advertised to do. If you don't want it, I'll take it!

I heard on another forum that someone got the Blueboard and a Positive Grid controller working on the same iOS device at the same time.

Also read in a sweetwater review that someone was able to get the blueboard working alongside a Sonoma Wire Works GuitarJack Stage unit

Almost 8 months now - any updates on this capability? Does the Firmware update to the iRig BlueBoard allow it to work with Windows 10?

In an absolutely nutty move, I can make this work thru CME Widi Bud, but I havent tried it with loopmidi and MIDIberry

Given that IK hasn't even made ASIO drivers for their devices, I'm not holding my breath that we'll see native bluetooth drivers in windows for this

Since the Microsoft surface came out, there is a new era in tablets being ushered in. If you're company that has a huge focus on catering to portable devices, windows 10 should be on your radar.
Doesn't it seem odd to anyone that if you want to update the firmware in your blueboard you need a windows device but that you can't actually use a windows device with the blueboard?

IK has some great products, but they tend not to support Windows very well. I purchased a Stomp I/O which would solve about everything we are all looking for. It works with iPad, Windows, and Mac. But, and here is the catch, they still don't have a Windows ASIO driver. They recommend a public domain driver. However, it doesn't work with with Amplitube and other non Amplitube software like Chrome. So, you aren't able to play youtube videos and guitar at the same time using the Stomp I/O, or the iRig HD2 without a special driver called Virtual Cable to redirect the sound, and it is a pain to use. I was very amazed since every other interface I own has their own proprietary drivers which allow multiple sound sources.

If all you want is midi and a great interface for doing live sets, the StompIO is a great device as they are on the right track. However, I have invested $$$'s for Amplitube, but had to abandon it for live stuff in favor of a self contained Guitar effects device. It has been two years since asking for a Windows driver, but I haven't seen one. Too bad, since they do have great products, but hardware w/o the software is pretty useless. The Stomp IO might be the best answer for using midi software including BIAS FX which worked really well with it. That said, I love IK Products, but their I haven't seen any action on fixing a big issue which is all over in blogs, not just me.

That said, the chances of the Blue Board getting a Windows driver is probably very slim unfortunately.
