IK Multimedia has released the StompIO upgrade ($799.99)—a reduced price, hardware-only version of the StompIO USB floor controller and audio interface. It's available to all registered users of “Powered by AmpliTube” products.
In addition to the StompIO upgrade, the company is offering an enhanced assortment of software bundled in the full version of StompIO. This bundle includes all five “Powered by AmpliTube” software packages: AmpliTube 2, Ampeg SVX, AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix, AmpliTube Metal (formerly only for previously registered AmpliTube 2 users), and AmpliTube X-Gear. This upgrade version allows you to fully control a software-based setup live, without connecting to a computer.
It features an expandable and customizable modeling effects system, 4,000 presets in a double series/parallel rig, and an interface with oversized displays, 6 dynamic rotary knobs, 10 footswitches, and up to 6 external expression pedals.
