"iRig Stomp I/O would have been a dream come true to a teenage me. It’s a 3-in-one delight, provided you have a small laptop or iPad, acting as both a multi-effects stomp box, audio interface and mobile recording studio."
Techradar, the technology news, reviews and gear site has been taking a close look at iRig Stomp I/O, courtesy of gear guru and would-be guitar hero Gerald Lynch.
Here are some of his key comments:
"iRig Stomp I/O made me want to get the old band back together!"
"It more than surpassed my expectations."
"It’s as happy pairing up with your iPad or iPhone as it is with a MacBook."
"Being able to simply plug in the iRig Stomp I/O and have it instantly recognised as an 96kHz/24-bit input device for my Mac was a dream."
"Within minutes I was strumming away in Garageband, laying down tracks and vocals, with the unit acting as a MIDI foot controller."
"The pedal board can take a beating too. Built with a metal chassis, I could happily stamp on it without fear of doing it damage, with its weight keeping it from shifting underfoot."
Gerald's final verdict was:
"The IK Multimedia iRig Stomp I/O costs $299 - an absolute steal given its versatility, durability and the wealth of software it comes with. Who knows where the music would have taken me if I’d had one of these back in my youth? Maybe there’s time yet for that Glastonbury performance..."
