IK Multimedia announces StompIO now shipping

IK Multimedia has announced that StompIO, the advanced USB floor controller + audio interface + modeling software bundle, is finally shipping. This guitar/bass FX system gives you full control over all "Powered by AmpliTube" software/plug-ins with the same feeling of a traditional hardware floor processor - no need to even look at the computer screen or touch the mouse – making this hardware/software combination one of the most powerful FX modeling systems ever made.

StompIOStompIO comes fully stocked with 5 full software packages: AmpliTube 2, Ampeg SVX, AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix, AmpliTube Metal (only for previously registered AmpliTube 2 users) and AmpliTube X-Gear (that's over $1,200/€990 worth of software included), totaling over 150 different highly-sought-after modern and vintage gear models.

The ultimate live and studio rig

With StompIO, you have the advantage of, possibly, the most powerful, fully customizable, expandable and upgradeable system ever made, thanks to the "Powered by AmpliTube" modular architecture. When used with laptops or mini computers, StompIO also offers an extremely compact and mobile solution for playing live and recording, ideal for touring and gigging guitarists.

  • Software-based guitar amp and FX that can truly be used live.
  • Operate every element of the software, with no need to have a screen, keyboard or mouse connected.
  • Boots up in less than 45 seconds on an average Mac/PC.
  • Use the same set up on stage and in studio, with the same instantly recallable presets and sound.
  • More expandable and upgradeable than any other software-based effects system.
  • Conveniently carry a mega-rig with your laptop or mini computer.

Controller and interface with high-end design

The StompIO has been designed with the highest standard in mind, with a Class-A DI, an all-analog, console-grade design, low-latency optimized drivers, professional controller feature-set and robust metal construction.

On stage, StompIO easily manages 4,000 presets with 5 different play modes to suit your playing style, with full editing control and the ability to create, save, and manage presets with only your feet. Take full control of your virtual gear rig with 10 on-board metal switches and 6 dynamic knobs with 2 large displays, plus to up 6 additional expression pedals or switches for monster rig control (1 expression pedal is included). Balanced and unbalanced outs let you connect the output of StompIO to an amp or house PA, and the MIDI in/out allows you to integrate traditional hardware processors for the ultimate live rig.

StompIO is the ideal stage solution for the touring pro. StompIO lets you duplicate almost any imaginable rig virtually, then control it with unparalleled freedom. StompIO allows you to switch entire rigs instantly with no pops, clicks or drop-outs, and using X-Gear you can replace your bulky stage rig without sacrificing any of your tone.

In the studio, StompIO combines the audio-quality of a high-end audio interface (with >107dBA, the highest dynamic range in its category) with an advanced automation controller to record your entire performances without handing off your guitar, and no need for tedious automation editing. StompIO is compatible with every DAW system, with balanced outputs for traditional recording and S/PDIF output for high-quality digital recording.

Software bundle

5 full software products are included in StompIO: AmpliTube 2, Ampeg SVX, AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix, AmpliTube Metal (only for previously registered AmpliTube 2 users) and AmpliTube X-Gear.

These products combined offer a wide selection of analog modeled gear, with over 150 included models: 51 stomps, 26 amps, 33 cabinets, 11 mics and 23 rack effects, fully configurable on 2 separate rigs, with up to 20 simultaneous effects. Plus you can build your own custom hybrid amp thanks to AmpliTube's exclusive separate amp Pre, EQ and Power section design, with over 180,000 possible combinations.

All the models have been emulated with custom-shop precision and craftsmanship using IK's exclusive DSM (Dynamic Saturation Modeling) technology, the culmination of 10 years of IK's research and development into software-based amp and fx modeling.

StompIO also includes 4 additional bonus software packages: Mackie Tracktion 2.1 audio/MIDI sequencer, T-RackS EQ, SampleTank SE, and 500MB of Sonic Reality loops.

StompIO is now available from all worldwide IK dealers and distributors, as well as on the IK online shop, for an MSRP of €799/$1,049.

The included AmpliTube Metal for AmpliTube 2 registered users will be available by March.
