NAMM Show 2018: IK Multimedia unveils the iRig Stomp I/O USB pedalboard with built-in 96k audio interface

Some of you may have seen IK Multimedia’s teaser trailer last week for a brand new product set to launch at this year’s NAMM Show… well, it turns out that the newest piece of kit from the company is a USB pedalboard controller for Mac/PC and iOS.

The IK Multimedia iRig Stomp I/O is an all-new generation of USB pedalboard controller for live and studio use, featuring a built-in 96k audio interface.

The iRig Stomp I/O is a sturdy, portable pedalboard controller that has 4 built-in switches along with an expression pedal and features a professional high-definition audio interface with 24-bit audio and up to 96kHz sampling rate, a combo input jack for line, instrument or mic input with phantom power, balanced stereo output and high quality ¼” headphone output ideal for use with the latest Apple devices like the iPhone X.

The 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.

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 is the only floor controller to feature a convenient device bay, where you can safely position your iOS device – charging it during use – for an immediate and clear view of the interface along with other tablets like the Microsoft Surface.

With over $/€800 worth of IK software and apps, iRig Stomp I/O puts all the power of the world’s best sounding guitar amp, FX modeling and vocal processing software right at the feet of users with a collection of over 160 gear models for Mac/PC and 70 for iOS.

Plus, recordings can be taken to the next level on Mac and PC using four select processors from IK’s flagship T-RackS mixing and mastering suite (the White-2A, Black 76 and VC-670 compressors, and the EQP-1A equaliser, for authentic analog studio sound).

iRig Stomp I/O is expected to ship in March 2018 and can be pre-ordered now from the IK Multimedia online store with free shipping and from IK authorised dealers worldwide for the remarkably affordable price of only €299.99.
