StompBox and Mic Stand

StompBox and Mic Stand

After the wild success of our GuitarConnect Cable, which Appletell called “easily the best choice available when it comes to methods to connect your guitar to your iDevice“, we’ve been dreaming up new ways to help you play music with iPad. How does a professional-quality pedalboard for iPad and Mic Stand Mount sound?



The StompBox multi-function foot controller integrates with iShred LIVE to give guitarists an iPad-ready pedalboard. With assignable foot switches and a 1/4″ expression pedal input, StompBox allows musicians to use their compatible iOS device as a portable, programmable effects board and practice rig while recreating the experience of an actual pedalboard.

Developed in partnership with Frontier Design Group—developers of iShred LIVE, iShred, Guitar, and other apps for iOS devices—StompBox brings a new level of realism to iPad-based music. Just like a real pedalboard, StompBox allows players to switch effects with their feet, without taking their hands off the instrument. StompBox connects to a compatible iPad or other iOS device with a 1 meter, heavy-duty dock connector cable, and gives the user four rugged, professional-quality and stomp-ready foot switches. The switches can be assigned through iShred LIVE to control different effects and presets within the App. There is hardly a feature or adjustable parameter in iShred LIVE that StompBox cannot control—it even controls the tuner, metronome, playback controls and more. An industry-standard 1/4″ input allows players to connect variable input effects like volume, expression, or wah-wah pedals, allowing more specific on-the-fly manipulation of effects and settings within iShred LIVE.

StompBox is packaged with our GuitarConnect Cable, and optimized for use with iShred LIVE. At launch, iShred LIVE will feature a number of StompBox-ready updates, including an intuitive StompBox setup interface, and new effects like Overdrive and Wah-Wah. Learn more at

Mic Stand Mount for iPadMic Stand Mount

Mic Stand Mount for iPad allows easy mounting of an iPad on a mic stand for a range of practice and performance scenarios. Whether displaying lyrics, sheet music, tabs, or otherwise, Mic Stand Mount screws onto a standard 5/8″ microphone stand so that the user can raise or lower their iPad to the perfect height. The Mount’s four rubber-lined grips hold iPad securely on all four corners without blocking the controls, dock connector, or audio jack; the grips also accommodate most shell- and skin-type cases for iPad. The mount rotates and locks into either portrait or landscape view, and tilts up to 90 degrees.

StompBox for iPad, $99.99, will be available in the first quarter of 2011 and includes a GuitarConnect Cable.

    Could you please clarify what “optimized for use with iShred LIVE” means for the Stompbox? Will you be making the programming specs available for other developers who might want to incorporate Stompbox support into their apps?

  3. Dave Delaney says:

    Currently StompBox is only compatible with iShred LIVE.
    I’d love to know which app you had in mind.

    Thanks Scott.

    I’d like to use with Ampkit.

    Awesome product! This is the future of guitar amplification, and I’m looking forward to hopping on board. I’d love to see this integrated with Amplitube.

  12. Dave Delaney says:

    Thanks very much John.

  13. Nina says:

    Guys, you seem to read my mind… I was just searching for something like the “Mic Stand Mount”! When does it come out? Obviously not in January…;-). And: is it available in Germany, too or can I order it online? Waaaant it!

  14. Benjammin4him says:

    ummm so when does the mic stand mount come out? its overdue by 2 months – your site says Jan 2011, we are at end of march 2011…any news on this?

  15. Dave Delaney says:

    We’re expecting soon. I don’t have an exact date at the moment. Sorry.

  17. Eddydoerfel says:

    When will the stomp box be available for purchase? Thanks

  18. Dave Delaney says:

    I think May, but we’ll know more soon. I’ll post about it on the blog for sure. Thanks.

  19. Eddydoerfel says:

    And yes, I’d love stomp box to be compatible with amp kit or amplitude.

  20. JTH says:

    Would love to see this compatible with 4pockets Stompbox app – it’s the only iPad app that adequately replicates a multiFX unit. IMHO, MUCH more versatile than Amplitude as an effects unit.

    Also, compatibility with some of the sheet music apps would be GREAT. Unrealbook, especially. You could have the pedal send page up/down commands for page turns.

  21. Dave Delaney says:

    Thanks for the suggestions.

  22. I’d love to be able to integrate with your stompbox – there are a myriad of uses. 

    one i’m particularly interested in is being able to advance through setlists and chordsheets using it and even instructing other band members where to go next within impromptu settings.

    this would apply to church bands particularly.

    will you be releasing an API?

  23. Dave Delaney says:

    Great idea!

    I don’t know of an available API at launch. We’ll probably have more information available when StompBox is available soon. Thanks Justin.

  25. D_m_g says:

    Can you you assign parameter adjustment like taptempo for delay, tremelo speed. reverb time, etc…. If so, I’ll be placing my order.
