"The Stomp I/O promises to make performing with iOS or Mac/PC easy and reliable; and it delivers on both counts. I now find myself bringing a much smaller rig with just an iPad where I was bringing ‘the kitchen sink’ before."
AskAudio were one of the first publications privileged to receive aniRig Stomp I/O for review and were more than delighted with what they found:
"Nobody is happier than me that IK Multimedia is ‘building out’ their iRig line into a professional environment of audio interfaces."
"The iRig Stomp I/O is the next entry in the already impressive lineup, and it brings together a host of features that can often be a pain to get up and running."
"The Stomp I/O itself is built rock solid. It feels hefty, and I’m definitely not afraid to stomp the hell out of it, but it’s not overly heavy."
"I’m happy to report that the Stomp I/O performed absolutely flawlessly with both iOS devices and on my MacBook Pro."
"In default mode, each of the stomp buttons called up a different preset, the expression pedal could trigger away with a tap, and everything worked as expected. I was able to dial in my gain quickly, and just get to playing."
"Not only is the Stomp I/O my new ‘go to’ tool for guitar playing on my iPad, it just became my main interface for keyboard apps as well."
AskAudio's final verdict was:
"The Stomp I/O promises to make performing with iOS or Mac/PC easy and reliable; and it delivers on both counts, I now have a much more elegant solution for changing patches and controlling expression/volume. iRig Stomp I/O gets two very enthusiastic thumbs up from us here at AskAudio."
