IK Multimedia were demoing iRig Stomp I/O at Musikmesse today — their latest USB pedalboard controller for live and studio use, featuring a built-in audio interface.
It has four built-in switches along with an expression pedal and features an audio interface with 24-bit audio and up to 96kHz sampling rate, a combo input jack for line, instrument or mic input with phantom power, balanced stereo output and 1/4-inch headphone output, making it particularly handy if your phone does happen to have a headphone socket…
The iRig Stomp is designed to work right out of the box with an iPhone or iPad using the included Lightning cable as well as with Mac and PC via USB. It is the only floor controller to feature a convenient device bay, where you can safely position your iOS device — charging it during use — for an immediate and clear view of the interface along with other tablets like the Microsoft Surface, taking advantage of the touchscreen interface for speed and flexibility in creating and tweaking guitar tones.
With over $/€800 worth of IK software and apps, iRig Stomp I/O puts all the power of the world's best sounding guitar amp, FX modelling and vocal processing software right at the feet of users with a collection of over 160 gear models for Mac/PC and 70 for iOS. Electric guitarists and bass players can unleash the full power of AmpliTube on Mac/PC as well as on iPhone and iPad, while acoustic guitarists can shape their tone with AmpliTube Acoustic for iOS and singers can get creative with VocaLive and Mic Room.
Plus, recordings can be taken to the next level on Mac and PC using four select processors from IK's flagship T-RackS mixing and mastering suite (the White-2A, Black 76 and VC-670 compressors, and the EQP-1A equaliser, for authentic analogue studio sound).
iRig Stomp I/O is designed to give electric and acoustic guitarists, bass players, vocalists, and songwriters a new way to have full control over their tone in any situation. Furthermore, iRig Stomp I/O offers the unique advantage of getting the same sound on stage as in the studio with a solution that is easily updatable as new software and features are released, making it theoretically a future-proof system.
iRig Stomp I/O has just begun shipping and has a price of $/€299.99.
