Sound on Sound: “iRig Stomp I/O is the ideal way to take it on the road!”

Sound on Sound magazine’s Editor-in-Chief, Paul White, has been spending some time with iRig Stomp I/O and was impressed with its audio quality, ease of use and controllability. Here are some of his key comments from their October 2018 issue: “The iRig Stomp I/O comes with a generous bundle of guitar and vocal processing software, as well as recording software, and has a place in home recording as well as on stage.” “Power comes from an included power adaptor, but if used with a computer, the hardware can also be powered directly from USB.” “The bundled IK software, if bought separately, would cost rather more than the iRig Stomp I/O itself, so the complete package is something of a bargain.” “As a straightforward audio interface for a Mac or PC, the iRig Stomp l/O shows up as a class-compliant device with one input and a stereo output, so no additional drivers are needed.” “The audio path is creditably quiet and clean whether using a mic or an instrument and those amp and pedal models run with extremely low latency, so the sensation is pretty much like playing through dedicated hardware.” “The iRig Stomp I/O is the ideal way to take it on the road with the convenience, audio quality and controllability of a hardware device.” “It can also double as a stand-alone computer audio interface or MlDl controller and in the studio it can act as an amp modeller and/or effects rack.” “A practical means of taking app-based effects and amp modelling into the hardware world.” Paul’s final verdict was: “IK have worked hard to ensure the best possible integration between the iRig Stomp I/O hardware and their apps, so that even AmpliTube Free works seamlessly. There’s a lot to like here for a very modest outlay.” + Robust build quality+ Strong software/hardware integration+ Doubles as an audio interface and MIDI controller+ Comes with a very generous bundle of IK Multimedia software Visit Sound on SoundLearn more about iRig Stomp...
