Guitarists have been able to use amp and FX simulators on their iPhones and iPads for a while… But if you’re like me, you’ve also wanted to see someone come out with an effective foot controller for such apps, and now Griffin has come to the rescue with the rather obvious name: ‘StompBox’
Here’s what Griffin say about the StompBox:
With four assignable foot switches and a 1/4″ effects pedal input jack, our StompBox allows musicians to use a compatible iOS device (i.e., iPhone, iPad or iPod touch) as a portable, programmable effects board and practice rig. StompBox effectively recreates the experience of an actual pedalboard.
Developed in partnership with Frontier Design Group (developers of iShred LIVE, iShred, Guitar, and other apps for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch), StompBox brings a new level of realism to iShred LIVE by replicating the performance-ready durability of pro-quality effects pedals.
Connect StompBox to your iPad or other iOS device with a built-in 1-meter heavy-duty dock cable. StompBox gives you a bank of four professional quality user-assignable foot switches. In back, there’s an industry-standard 1/4″ mono jack to plug in a volume or expression pedal.
