Controller and interface with high-end design

The StompIO has been designed with the highest standard in mind, with a Class-A DI, an all-analog, console-grade design, low-latency optimized drivers, professional controller feature-set and robust metal construction.

On stage, StompIO easily manages a staggering 4,000 presets with 5 different play modes to suit your playing style, with full editing control and the ability to create, save, and manage presets with only your feet. Take full control of your virtual gear rig with 10 on-board metal switches and 6 dynamic knobs with 2 large displays, plus to up 6 additional expression pedals or switches for monster rig control (1 expression pedal is included). Balanced and unbalanced outs let you connect the output of StompIO to an amp or house PA, and the MIDI in/out allows you to integrate traditional hardware processors for the ultimate live rig.

StompIO is the ideal stage solution for the touring pro. Downsize your complicated and failure-prone rig and stop checking batteries and cables before every single show. StompIO lets you duplicate almost any imaginable rig virtually, then control it with unparalleled freedom. StompIO allows you to switch entire rigs instantly with no pops, clicks or drop-outs, and using X-GEAR you can replace your bulky stage rig without sacrificing any of your tone.

In the studio, StompIO combines the audio-quality of a high-end audio interface (with >107dBA, the highest dynamic range in its category) with an advanced automation controller to record your entire performances without handing off your guitar, and no need for tedious automation editing. StompIO is compatible with every DAW system, with balanced outputs for traditional recording and S/PDIF output for high-quality digital recording.

Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I have the Stompio and have had it for years now and it works great and I run it into power amp JBL PA system also using a 14 channel Mackie. There so many types of sounds you can get out of it and they are always adding more amps and stomp boxes to the collection at cheap prices. I use to have Fender amps but now I use this and love it. Its cheaper then buying the AxeFx and sounds just as good.
