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 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.

Comments about DigiTech iStomp Downloadable Stompbox:

This is a really cool pedal. It works well and sounds great with my rig. I have close to 20 different pedals and this one seems to play well with all of them. It also works well with single coil, humbucking, and p90 pickups. I really could not be happier. I just wish I had ordered more than one at the Stupid Deal price so that I could use more than one patch at a time.

Comments about DigiTech iStomp Downloadable Stompbox:

I got this as a stupid deal of the day, and am very happy for the price. Everything works well and sounds great. If you have an I phone, it is compact and offers a great number of effects for free in the Stomp Shop app. It is a great asset in the studio where you can use it for any effect you would need. There has been zero noise with all of the effects I have tried so far.

Comments about DigiTech iStomp Downloadable Stompbox:

I received my Stompbox, opened it and read the instructions completely through first. Then I connected the unit to my iphone 4S and downloaded a few pedals that interested me. But, everytime I try to 'load' a pedal, any pedal whether it came with the box or one downloaded, I get a communication error. I have since researched this online and there are numerous people with the same problem. Returned mine right away.

    Nowhere in the description does it say this uses the old Apple 30 pin connection. I need to buy Apple's 30 pin to Lightning adapter to make this work. This should be explained in the item description.

      Comments about DigiTech iStomp Downloadable Stompbox:

      This pedal is fabulous! I have played professionally for many, many years. Throughout those years, I have spent a lot of money on various pedals -- many of which I don't use anymore because my needs or tastes have changed.

      The beauty of this pedal is that it can be changed to a completely different pedal in about 30 seconds by uploading a new sound to the physical pedal.

      For instance, if I need a specific pedal for a recording project, I have it. And if I need something else for playing live, I have it. And when my needs or tastes change, I'm not stuck with a pedal I won't use anymore.

      The downloadable sounds are really good. Some are better than others... but almost all of them are better than I expected.

      I highly recommend this pedal.
