We’re up to prize #3 for the PedalsAndEffects 6/4 Giveaway, and it’s pretty awesome- the DigiTech iStomp pedal. This effect is an entirely new concept in pedals. It works just like a traditional stompbox with one giant exception- it can be completely reconfigured by loading it with any of the 47 plus, e-pedals available in the Stomp Shop app. And unlike devices that require you to stay tethered to your iOS device, the iStomp does all of its processing internally. This means professional-quality, high-definition signal processing with no latency with no need for your iOS device while playing.
One of my main goals for PedalsAndEffects is to keep musicians informed on the latest, newest state-of-the-art devices, and Digitech is a company that fits right in with that goal by combining cutting edge technology with amazing sound. Imagine if you were working in a few different situations that require completely different sound palates. With iStomp, you could prepare your pedal(s) ahead of time, before each gig, and get custom sounds perfect for that particular situation. Is hard rock your thing? Download some distortions. Playing a pop gig that requires some subtle chorus? Download it before the gig into the same stompbox. It doesn’t surprise me that this incredible pedal is coming from the same people who created the Whammy pedal (one of may all time favorite delays), the DigiDelay and the BP90 multi effects processor.
Digitech has been a great supporter in my pedal endeavors, as you can see from the photo above, taken during The Mars Volta “Amputechture” tour a few years back. At one point, I had two Whammy pedals and two DigiDelays on my board. I also have a large collection of their discontinued pedals such as the Digitech PDS 20/20 and their DOD line of pedals. They have always been great innovators and it shows once again in this iStomp. Check out Adrian Belew’s demo of his crazy iStomp download for The Impossible.
