The pedal that changes everything now with 10 free e-pedals included!

The DigiTech iStomp is an entirely new concept in pedals. It works just like a traditional stompbox with one huge exception. It can be completely reconfigured by loading it with any of the many e-pedals available in the Stomp Shop app. The iStomp now comes with 10 of the top ePedals, right out of the box!

Unlike devices that require you to stay tethered to your iOS device, the iStomp does all of its processing internally. This means professional-quality, high-definition signal processing with no latency and you don’t need your iOS device while you’re playing.

See what the new world of e-pedals can do for your music.

Stomp Shop App
Connect the iStomp to an iOS device using the DigiTech Smart Cable. In about the same time it takes to download a song, you can completely reconfigure the iStomp with any e-pedal from your virtual road case using the Stomp Shop app. Disconnect the Smart Cable and you’re ready to use your iStomp just like you would any traditional pedal. Just download the software for free at http://www.digitech.com/en-US/softwares/stomp-shop-ios-43.

e-pedal Virtual Road Case
The Stomp Shop saves a record of all the e-pedals you purchase becoming your e-pedal virtual road case. You can now carry your entire e-pedal collection with you on your phone. From the Stomp Shop app you can reload any e-pedal to your iStomp at any time.

e-pedal Custom LED Color
You can choose one the color of the 9 dot LED light on their iStomp when you load an e-pedal from the Stomp Shop App e-pedal store and virtual road case. It is a great way to identify each e-pedal when it is loaded on your iStomp.

DigiTech Smart Cable (DSC for iOS)
The new DigiTech Smart Cable (DSC) is a proprietary cable developed by DigiTech in conjunction with Apple that allows direct communication between DigiTech products and iOS devices such as an iPod touch, iPhone, or iPad. The iStomp along with the Stomp Shop App are the first DigiTech products to incorporate the new DSC cable and DSC Port.

I think this pedal sounds fantastic, and it's built as well as anything else I've used. The configurable LED is pretty cool as well. I know many guitarists are hung up on the true-bypass issue, and I am as well to an extent. BUT, the very first thing on my board is a BS-2 buffer/spliiter, from Axxess Electronics, which converts my signal to low impedance, and from that point on, there is no signal loss, extra noise, or any other audible issues. I can run true bypass and buffered devices w/o any problems. It's all in how you set up your pedal board.
It's a simple stompbox, but I love the fact that I can use it as a supplement to my pedal board. I find that on occasion I need an octaver, or a particular overdrive and with this I don't have to buy an additional pedal. I can just download the model from my iPod touch and for that night, I have the extra flavor the gig calls for. I only have to buy it once and the models are inexpensive.
This unit is built quite well. More importantly, I love what my ears are hearing. The models are very, very accurately done. I've owned, or have borrowed friends pedals from which some of the models are derrived, and I can say that DigiTech did an amazing job getting them to sound authentic. The dynamics really shined: the Redline overdrive, as well as the Glimmer and Rodent drives cleaned up when rolling off my volume, and they didn't color the sound of my guitar. I've played a couple of different guitars through this pedal, using several different models and they all let the natural characters of each guitar shine through. I'm very picky about what I put on my board, and I wouldn't hesitate to add this pedal. Most of my other pedals are from Fulltone, Xotic, Axxess Electronics, and HardWire, and this fits in nicely.

I would love to have the option of downloading some of the more quircky pedals DigiTech has produced in the past, such as the Gonkulator, or some of the stranger modulation effects that the Space Station was capable of.
You buy one box and for a little more, each, you can have several different effects to choose from and download them in between sets from your phone. That's a great value.

Digitech abandoned all support for this pedal almost a year ago. They have not added any new pedal models since 2013. The pedal has had ongoing and serious problems with the App and compatibility to any new iOS upgrades or Apple product since the Lightning connector was introduced over 2 years ago. This pedal was outdated almost the moment they released it. Digitech's customer support has been truly terrible. They will never answer you directly about the problems or product. IF you can get it to work, it has some very nice modeled pedals which may work for you - as long as the patch is stable and you buy the expensive Apple 30 pin to Lightning adapter. However, it has other serious design flaws: it is very difficult to set up on a pedal board and change tones because the large multi pin connector sticks out very far from the unit. It needs it's own isolated power supply or it can bleed tones or clicks or noise into your signal chain. With no indicator as to what pedal is loaded, if you don't have the ID stickers that they provided for a brief period of time, you have to use tape or make your own labels. If it drops your model or won't work, it is not true bypass and you have to patch around it on your pedal board.

Finally, why would you pay anything close to retail for this as it has sold for about 75% off it's price on many occasions.

Bottom line: I know some players are thrilled to get this for the super deal prices and may get some good use from it but I found Digitech's awful support for it, as well as the various programming and compatibility flaws too much to even want it at the low price.

Comments about DigiTech iStomp Downloadable Stompbox:

I purchased a couple of these pedals and so far have been totally satisfied with the quality and variety of effects. I have compared some of the effects to dedicated pedals that I have, and haven't noticed any real difference. This pedal provides great versatility in your pedal board setup at a very low cost. I will probably buy a couple more to form the core of my pedal board.

Comments about DigiTech iStomp Downloadable Stompbox:

This was one Stupid Deal I just couldn't pass up. I wanted to try the iStomp ever since one of the Digitech guys kept telling me how cool it was and every time new patches were added he'd try to get me to bite. I don't like iOS products and knew that this would turn obsolete faster than an iPhone. I still had to try it. It seems all but one of the pedals are free to download now. The sounds are good and clean, but if you are looking for clones or something warm with tone, this is not it. Think of comparing pickups like EMG's vs. vintage PAF's. The digital effects are cool, though.

Comments about DigiTech iStomp Downloadable Stompbox:

Lots of great pedals to down load and all but one are free. They sound great. I wish the product was not discontinued and the would continue support.

I have an iPad 2 which uses the 30 pin connector and this works pretty well with it, but the audition/preview option doesn't seem to work and some times the download bugs out, but usually it works. I also have an iPhone 5, with two different 30 pin to lightning adapters (1 apple, 1 generic). With the adapter downloads to the pedal fail about 80% of the time, but the audition/preview works fine.

I would recommend if you have a iPhone/iPad with a 30 pin connector.

    Comments about DigiTech iStomp Downloadable Stompbox:

    This is an interesting tool: you have access to several different effects. It takes about 30 seconds to swap effects. In order to use the effect, you have to know what each button does, as they are not labeled on the pedal. If you are using the pedal for just one effect, you can put labels down to help you. I got this at a good price and will play with it more.

      This is a a great pedal if you're looking to switch out effects on a regular basis. The effects do a very good job of emulating the originals and so far the ones I have loaded are very useable. This is an easy to use pedal and I'm really happy with th amount of effects you can download for free.

          Comments about DigiTech iStomp Downloadable Stompbox:

          I have an iPhone 4s and an iPad 3, both running iOS 7, and both will not allow me to load pedals to the iStomp from the StompShop. Total waste of money.

          BUYER BEWARE! The DigiTech iStomp pedal will only work on iPad, iPhone and iPodTouch running iOS higher than 4.3 but not higher than iOS 6. Also, it will not work with any iPhone or iPad using a Lightning connector at all. This makes it useless for most users. Digitech has been aware of this issue since at least February 28, 2013 yet allows retailers to continue to advertise the product as fully compatible with "iPod touch, iPhone, and iPad running iOS 4.3 or later".

          When customers buy this product and experience issues with it they are fed a string of informationless emails from a service department that doesn't even seem to be reading the emails as they come in. They also allow the Stomp Shop app to be to be posted on the Apple iTunes and App Store with a description claiming that the product "is optimized for iPhone 5." While I can understand that fast evolving tech can cause compatibility issue, there is no excuse for DigiTech to not issue any warning about known problems with this product.

          Comments about DigiTech iStomp Downloadable Stompbox:

          Excellent little stomp box. I was able to grab these as a SDOTD and couldn't be happier. Excellent selection of effects and the sound quality is really really nice. I'm not sure I would have purchased this at full retail, but they can be found used for the about a third of the retail price. At this price if you only find one sound you like, you are still way under what the typical pedal would cost you. Personally I found it to be very versatile and useful on a multitude of sounds. Takes up no more space than an average pedal on my board and easily connects to my Onespot. The only downsides to this pedal that I can honestly think of is 1.) the retail price is steep, buy it used or get lucky to find it as a SDOTD and 2.) They have since discontinued this unfortunately. Owners of the iphone 5 will have to purchase an additional adapter for the lighting plug, but I just use the software off of my ipod touch and it works great! Great little pedal for gigs and recording.

            I saw this on the Stupid Deal Of The Day. I decided to give it a try. It came with the Red Line overdrive. It's an amazing overdrive, very clean. Not the best in the Market but it works for what I want. It sits beautifully in my pedalboard without any issues.

            I loved it so much that I bought one more. I have the delay which is ok. I am very excited about trying newer models. I am going to be waiting for some stupid / silly deals.

            I got my box and immediately opened the package as I was anxious to check it out. But, I intentionally made myself read the instructions front to back first, so as to not make any mistakes. Downloaded the app. After checking out all the boxes that came with the machine, i downloaded my first new app/sound from the app store. It sounded great!
            But, when attempting to download the next new app a couple days later, all the screen kept saying 'error' no communication with hardware. I even tried resetting everything. Sent back on a return, was refunded immediately. I would not recommend until they get the bugs fixed.
