The world's first wah-style audio interface/MIDI controller designed for guitar and bass players 28/05/09
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 AmpliTubeÂ® 2, AmpegÂ® SVX, AmpliTube X-GEAR, RiffWorksâ„¢ 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.
