Designed for instrumentalists who wish to integrate their computers and iOS devices into their live setups, the IK Multimedia iRig Stomp I/O is a USB controller in a pedalboard form factor. This MFi certified audio interface provides 5-pin DIN MIDI I/O that connects to Macs, Windows computers, iPhones, and iPads. Atop its four-footswitch layout is a bar for your tablet, so you can see the virtual processing you're using while you play.
The unit provides four onboard metal footswitches, alongside an expression pedal, all of which sport LED indicators to give you visual cues on stage as to what's going on with the pedalboard. Two 1/4" jacks on the rear of the device allow you to connect additional switches for even further control.
The Neutrik combination TRS-1/4" jack provides phantom power to microphones, as well as a Hi-Z connection to instruments. Balanced stereo outputs can route your resulting sound to mixers, PAs, and, thanks to their floating balanced implementation, instrument amplifiers. A 1/4" stereo headphone output with an independent volume knob makes silent practicing and private monitoring a reality.
The unit itself is a 96 kHz / 24-bit audio interface, through which you can record guitars, basses, or vocal microphones. You can record straight to your mobile device or tablet, and make seamless use of IK Multimedia's AmpliTube and VocaLive. Thanks to unit's Class A preamp, the iRig Stomp I/O provides an audio path that is equal to, if not surpassing, most floor processors. Included with your purchase of the iRig Stomp I/O are guitar and vocal processing effects and recording software.
