IK Multimedia has announced iRig Stomp I/O, an all-new generation of pedalboard controller for live and studio use featuring a built-in audio interface. A sturdy, portable pedalboard controller that has 4 built-in switches along with an expression pedal, it features a professional high-definition audio interface with 24-bit audio up to 96kHz sampling rate.
With its combination ¼"/XLR input, iRig Stomp I/O lets you easily record with a guitar, bass, synth, keyboard or microphone - including studio condenser mics requiring 48V phantom power using its 96kHz/24-bit audio interface on iPhone/iPad, Mac and PC. It has a Class A preamp with gain control and an output level control with VU metering for both input and output levels. The integrated ¼" headphone output allows for monitoring the signal during tracking or when practicing, while the balanced stereo output can be used to send the signal to an amplifier, a mixer, a PA or powered speakers.
iRig Stomp I/O features an onboard expression pedal with a switch and four stomp switches allowing control over effects and presets for hands-free performance. The two ¼" control inputs can connect additional external pedals or switches. Plus there is a MIDI input and output allowing the unit to operate as a stand-alone controller.
As an MFi certified audio interface, it 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 features a convenient device bay, where you can safely position your iOS device - charging it during use.
With over $/€800 worth of IK software and apps, iRig Stomp I/O puts all the power of IK's guitar amp, FX modeling and vocal processing software right at the feet of users with 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, on Mac and PC four select processors from IK's flagship T-RackS mixing and mastering suite are included (the White-2A, Black 76 and VC-670 compressors, and the EQP-1A equaliser, for authentic analog studio sound).
