I came across an interesting product today – the Digitech iStomp. This is definitely the future for a large segment of guitarists/bassists. It provides the ability to create digital effects from your iPhone/iPad/iPod but control the effect like a analog stomp by allowing for a floor controlled unit and the ability to have ‘knobs’ to dial in the effect. You can select from 20 different stomp boxes (I’m sure many more to come). If I understand this correctly, you can store the effects on your iDevice and push it to the pedal, but the pedal can only play one effect once it’s loaded. If anyone has any personal experience with this, please chime in and let me know what you think!
Here is the official description of the Digitech iStomp:
iStomp works like all other stompboxes on the market Turn the iStomp into any pedal available in the Stomp Shop Stomp Shop offers more than 20 different pedals to choose from More pedals will be continually added to the Stomp Shop User defined custom LED color for any pedal loaded to the iStomp Die-cut removable custom labels for multiple pedals included True stereo in and stereo out Stomp Shop Apps saves all your pedals in the app Compatible with all models of iPod touch, iPhone, and iPad running iOS 4 or later.
