DigiTech iStomp, ultimate stompbox for iPhone musicians
If you play the guitar and do many live gigs you’ll know that lugging around a multi-FX pedal or large pedal board set-up can be somewhat of a right pain; however, if you are a guitarist with an iOS device you can now do away with all that hassle by using the DigiTech iStomp pedal from Harman, and iOS accessory that has been touted as “the ultimate stompbox for musicians.”
According to the guys over at Ubergizmo, the iStomp has the ability to turn into any pedal via your iPhone, iPod Touch or Apple iPad, simply plug your iDevice into the iStomp and then use the DigiTech Stomp Shop iOS app to select the desired pedal you want the iStomp to be.
Using a single iStomp pedal the user can create a multitude of guitar effects and all that is required is that you load it up with whatever you require between songs. The DigiTech iStomp user can also set your iOS device so that you can have the pedal sounding exactly how you like.
The DigiTech iStomp comes with two popular effects for free, Redline Overdrive and Total Recall Delay, whilst other effects can be purchased via the app including Red Compressor, Octaver, Compressor, Screamer — Tube Distortion, Rock it Distortion, Face Fuzz, Blue Pearl Chorus, and many more with the ability to sample each effect for 5-minutes before deciding to purchase.
We have an introduction to the DigiTech iStomp video for your viewing pleasure below, so head on down and mash that play button to check out the footage.
For those that wish to purchase the iStomp the device commands a price tag of $229.95, whilst the app for the iPhone, iPod Touch and Apple iPad can be downloaded for free from iTunes, and in-app purchases kick off at $4.99 a pop.
