Floor controller for Amplitube finally sees the light of day 15/10/07
IK Multimedia has announced that the long awaited StompIO, USB floor controller and audio interface, will start shipping in November.
IK tell us that the StompIO gives you full control over the 5 current "Powered by AmpliTube" software/plug-ins (AmpliTube 2, AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix, Ampeg SVX, AmpliTube Metal and AmpliTube 2 Live) and also future packages, with the same feeling of a traditional hardware floor processor - no need to even look at the computer screen or touch the mouse - for a combination of hardware and software. They say that this will make it the most powerful guitar amp and FX system ever made.
StompIO comes with either the full version of AmpliTube 2 or the just announced AmpliTube Metal, at user's choice, worth â‚¬199/$249.
Plus the StompIO also comes with the new AmpliTube X-GEAR (â‚¬79.99/$99.99) that allows you to open any "Powered by AmpliTube" application in a single interface with full mixing and matching between the amp and effects models. Pricing and Availability:
StompIO will cost â‚¬869/$1,049 (list price including â‚¬359/$449 worth of new software and hardware accessories for current and new users) and will be available by November 2007.
