IK Multimedia Ship StealthPedal


Here's the press release that IK have sent us...
IK Multimedia is pleased to announce that the highly anticipated StealthPedal, the world's first compact audio interface and MIDI controller housed in a wah-style pedal is now shipping. StealthPedal was designed specifically for guitar and bass players who are looking for an affordable, "high sound quality" way to connect their instrument to their computer, and control parameters of their software from the floor. Players can plug into the StealthPedal and immediately control the included "Powered by AmpliTube" software without additional setup. Plus, they can control ANY MIDI controllable software with the StealthPedal using the included StealthPedal MIDI setup application for Mac/PC.
Also, the StealthPedal will incorporate into an existing pedalboard setup utilizing only one pedal space, and adds the convenience and flexibility of computer based rigs to live performances.
StealthPedal Overview:
The StealthPedal is an affordable USB-powered audio interface that also works as a software floor controller, allowing anyone to play and record guitar or bass with a Mac or PC, with 24-bit A/D and D/A conversion and 44.1/48 kHz operation. Two discreet inputs allow for connection of Hi-Z or line level instruments. It also features two separate outputs, plus a convenient headphone output for private listening and mobile jamming.
The built-in expression pedal and switch can be associated with any parameter of any "Powered By AmpliTube" software, or any other amp and FX modeling software with MIDI control capabilities. The StealthPedal controls can also be expanded with an additional expression pedal and two extra switches for additional live or recording flexibility.
The circuit design of the StealthPedal is derived from IK's StompIO high-end stage controller, ensuring the highest fidelity for recording. It also provides a software configurable input gain level and a 109dBA low-noise input stage for optimal audio quality.
StealthPedal comes with a must-have assortment of guitar and bass software including AmpliTube® 2, Ampeg® SVX, AmpliTube X-GEAR, RiffWorks™ T4 recording software, plus a collection of Sonic Reality's AmpliGroove Jam Loops. The StealthPedal is compatible with all popular DAW software supporting ASIO and Core Audio drivers on both PC and Mac.
Plus, for a limited time only, all StealthPedal purchases will receive a FREE download of AmpliTube Metal software worth $229.99 / €169.99! Register your StealthPedal today and receive IK's high-gain amp and FX software for free, just download it from the IK USER AREA.
