The tone is what matters though. I’ve programmed multiple banks, some using the cabinet models so I can go direct if I show up to the gig and the backline is sub par, and some with the cab sim off so I can go in front of an amp.
My advice is not to expect to plug it in and start gigging. The interface between the Stomp I/O and iPad is seamless and very intuitive, but it took me a while, set up in my living room, to program acceptable patches to use on stage. I plugged directly into a PA first and programmed direct, then into my amp and started over. Then I played a couple gigs in town with it, and found a few useful tweaks before I started flying with it.
Once I took it out on fly dates, it was perfect for what I needed. I won’t be replacing my analog rig anytime soon, but this is a great option for gigs that require a light weight, extremely versatile and easily transportable rig.
I could have overlooked quite of few non-critical shortcomings like the need to power both the Stomp I/O and the iPad occasionally to get them to sync up (No output when they don't). But unfortunately, it does not appear the hardware is ready for ShowTime.
I got my first one around the March 2019 time frame and used it at my first gig around the end of April. During the first rehearsal the night before the first performance, switch #1 stopped working. No combination of disconnecting cable or power cycling fixed the issue. I submitted my request for a replacement through Amazon the first week of May as soon as I got back. Recieved my replacement with a few days and shipped the broken one back. All good. Stuff happens.
Everything worked fine except for the occasional need to reset cables, reboot, power cycle. (More of an annoyance then deal-breaker). It was unbelievable when the exact same thing happen again. On 10/16/19 during rehearsal the night before the performance, switch 1 stopped working just like the first one. And everything I tried to resolve did not work.
Called Amazon last week to report the issue and was informed by Amazon tech support that since we were past the 30-return policy window, I had to deal directly with IK Multimedia. No surprise there. I don't hold that against Amazon. On Thursday, 10/24, I opened a ticket with IKM and it's now Monday evening, 10/28 and have not heard back from IKM yet expect for the auto-reply email you get when your first open a ticket. Amazon, on the other hand, has emailed me twice (Frday and today) to see if I've heard back from IKM. Very commendable, Amazon. The tech's goes by the name Lady and has done a fine job handling my issue. So now I wait. Hopefully not too much longer.
I suspect that IKM support will ask me to ship it back to them for warranty repair and probably refuse my preferred course of action to get a refund. At which time, I will put the repaired unit up for sale and a substantial discount compared to what I paid. Then I will go back and look at the Helix Stomp and Headrush Gigboard and decide which one to go with, something apparently I should have done in the beginning.
In short, AmpliTube is great. Lots of cool effects and amps. I will continue to use it in combination with whatever I buy next. And the the Stomp I/O would be a great addition if it were more reliable. I will update this post when I hear back from IKM. Stay tuned . . .
10/30 - Update:
Because IKM was slow to respond (I heard from them today. See IKM comments below) Amazon allowed me to return the unit for a refund. I am forever grateful for Amazon's amazing customer service. This is truly commendable. I returned it yesterday and should have the money back in my account within a few days.
For the record, I think that IKM has some really great products. I still own an iRig Duo and an iRig MicroAmp. I still think AmpliTube is a great product and will continue to use it on my iPad, iPhone and computer. In my experience, IKM support is always slow to respond (5-7 days). I suggested to Ryan that that also give customers the option to call into tech support and not require then to be at the mercy of an email response. As I told Ryan in my email response, the Stomp I/O/iPad marriage may be a great idea in concept, I just don't think it's ready for showtime.
Now if I could just get IKM to allow me to return the Stomp I/O travel bag that I no longer need, I will be delighted.
Purchased: November 2018
Review Date: July 2019
Trigger: I bought a Tascam iXR and compared it with the iRig. It turns out, the issues I faced now appear to be either an iRig limitation or a hardware defect.
Summary: I love the Stomp I/O. It was made for electric guitarists by people who really know what we need; but I had some lingering issues that I've been able to address-- until I found these issues weren't present in the Tascam. Allow me to explain...
Guitar: Epiphone custom PRO
wired to: iRig Stomp I/O
plugged into: powered USB 3 hub on my Dell G3 3579 (8th Gen. i7, 8Gb RAM, NVidia GTX 1050Ti, 128GB SSD + 1TB HDD)
running apps: Amplitube 4 using "ASIO"-> ASIO4ALL
1. Stomp-box emulation (it's like a real multi-effects pedal)
2. almost seamless integration to Amplitube 4.
3. robust bundled software with hassle-free registration and downloads.
4. It is very sturdy (8 months of using it and it still looks and feels like new)
Cons: Each of these quirks I've either learned to live with or have found a workaround... IKMultimedia's support group and forums have been excellent at providing information and stuff like that. Some of you may not have the same issues as me though.
1. connecting this to my laptop causes power to drop out at random intervals (each session, It would drop out at least once) When I say drop out, this most noticeable as Amplitube 4 appears to hang for a second, or it then fails to recognize that the Stomp I/O is actually there (then I lose all MIDI controller functions).
Workaround: we initially thought it was a USB power issue. I bought a powered USB hub and that somehow did the trick... except, sometimes, when switching between the advanced tuner and playing, I would notice a minor hang (a fraction of a second) but that doesn't seem to affect the performance at all.
2. No matter what I tried or what guide I followed, I could not get Amplitube to work with Spotify.... nothing worked. And using MP3's which it converted to WAV would chop a lot.... I would have to go to the ASIO4ALL control panel and exit it to refresh the config so that the audio would play right.
In line with this, while playing, there is a rare but looming possibility that the audio would flake... the sound would become weird. Opening ASIO4all's control panel and exiting always resolves the issue.
I have my buffers set at 512-- any lower and it would lag.. any higher and the latency is just too much...
3. My Stomp #2 at one point actually weakened... I had to open it up and extend the spring a bit to fix the issue.
Now the part where Tascam iXR comes in. I received the iXR just yesterday and did a 2hr session with Amplitube 4. Seemless integration... I could use Amplitube with Spotify no problem, no configs needed. I've buffers set at 256-- almost imperceivable latency (except when playing very high speed solos) and most of all, no lags were perceived... like, nothing. Amplitube was running buttery smooth and the iXR was powered by the laptop's USB... no power drops. I now feel rather cheated.
Guitar -> Tascam iXR -> laptop
I'm planning to use the Stomp I/O as a dedicated MIDI controller/ stomp box... but really, I think a device worth twice as much as the iXR should work way better....
Top reviews from other countries
The UI is a confusing mess, and just getting to the point where you can get a sound from your guitar to your speaker is quite the feat. the general layout is cluttered, selecting things from the library and assigning them to switchable soundbanks on the board... it’s all far harder than it should be. There’s a live play mode, and then a very basic DAW for recording... although I would advise you’re better off using something like Logic Pro X, which will accept Amplitube as an instrument. Somewhat frustrating is that although it has “Stomp” in the name, “stomp mode” (where the 4 switches correspond to 4 effects pedals) is not even enabled by default. Switching to “stomp mode”, you have to hold one foot-switch down and then press another. Also frustrating is that the expression pedal has no on/off button, so one of those 4 switches you were hoping to use with other pedals must be used to switch it on/off... there’s not even an auto setting in the app, such as you’d get on a real Morley Wah-wah pedal (where the pedal switches on as soon as you start moving it).
Finally, calibrating this thing is not possible in the software... you have to press a combination of buttons on the board to put it in calibration mode, then another combination to save that calibration. This is odd, as the Amplitube software has a calibration page, but apparently that was designed to work only with the “Stealth Pedal”, which went obsolete about a year ago.
The board itself is well-made, but the expression pedal is far stiffer than any real pedal I’ve used. I’m hoping it will loosen up a bit over time. The switches seem pretty tough, so I imagine they’d withstand the heavy-footed. Additionally, IK Multimedia provide good support to paying customers... it’s just a shame the desktop software is such a badly designed mess.
No le voy a dar una tercera oportunidad. Aparentemente es muy robusta pero su ensamblaje no es de gran calidad (basándome en mi propia experiencia).
Por cierto, si tienes un dispositivo Apple con lightning podrás cargar el dispositivo mientras tocas, pero si el dispositivo tiene usb C (iPad Pro 2018 o 2020) el cable mini din a usb c que vende la marca por el módico precio de 30€ no funciona. Solución que te da el fabricante: comprar un cable usb b a usb c, pero pierdes la posibilidad de cargar la tablet mientras tocas. Si quieres cargarla te tendrás que comprar un hub usb c adicional. Muchos parches para un dispositivo tan caro…
Por último, aunque lo pone en las especificaciones, no es muy coherente que gastándote casi 300€ en la pedalera, tengas que pagar por desbloquear amplitube en el iPad...
