Comments about IK Multimedia iRig STOMP Stompbox Guitar Interface:

The product is well made and the apps are cool. I own MANY IK products, but... If you want to use the iRig as the FX "channel" and Bypass to use your amp's clean tone, there is a very big insertion loss. IK Multimedia was great about getting back to me and I tried all of their suggestions, but to no avail. However you try to make up the gain, it results in unwanted distortion. I returned this unit and bought the Digitech iStomp which works wonderfully. The Digitech is more expensive, but no problems with insertion loss, the FX are great and the fact that it has knobs makes it extremely easy to use.

    Comments about IK Multimedia iRig STOMP Stompbox Guitar Interface:

    Thought this would be a great diving in point for integrating the power of iOS in guitar playing. Built well and the app (AmpliTude) is very cool. But...big insertion loss! If you had thoughts of running the bypass as your "clean channel" and the"in" as your "FX" channel, it ain't gonna happen. Unless you are using VERY high gain on the iRig IN and the Bypass for clean, (let's say a clean, chorused sound via AmpliTude) if you intend to use the Stomp to switch back over to Bypass, the bypassed signal is WAY hotter, unless you start upping the IN gain A LOT which results in unwanted distortion on the IN side. Also keep in mind, the hotter you run the iOS FX, the noisier things get. For experimenting or if you are going to use it as an interface only and "set it and forget it", you'll be fine.

      Comments about IK Multimedia iRig STOMP Stompbox Guitar Interface:

      I use the pedal for live performances as a bass player. I love the fact that you can tap your Itunes music during a break and go right to a playlist. As far as being useful as a bass effects pedal, its very noisy and emmit a constant hiss. Use the noise filter and you get no tone from you bass. I think it is more of an issue with the cable more so than the pedal itself. I get a lot of pops and cracks when the cable is disturbed even the smallest bit.
