IK Multimedia StealthPedal Now Shipping

Modena, Italy (May 26, 2009) – IK Multimedia has announced that the StealthPedal, the world’s first compact audio interface and MIDI controller housed in a wah-style pedal, is now shipping.

The StealthPedal is an affordable USB-powered audio interface that also works as a software floor controller, allowing anyone to play and record guitar or bass with a Mac or PC, with 24-bit A/D and D/A conversion and 44.1/48 kHz operation. Two discreet inputs allow for connection of Hi-Z or line level instruments. It also features two separate outputs, plus a convenient headphone output for private listening and mobile jamming.

The built-in expression pedal and switch can be associated with any parameter of any “Powered By AmpliTube” software, or any other amp and FX modeling software with MIDI control capabilities. The StealthPedal controls can also be expanded with an additional expression pedal and two extra switches for additional live or recording flexibility.

The circuit design of the StealthPedal is derived from IK’s StompIO high-end stage controller, ensuring the highest fidelity for recording. It also provides a software configurable input gain level and a 109dBA low-noise input stage for optimal audio quality.

StealthPedal comes with a must-have assortment of guitar and bass software including AmpliTube 2, Ampeg SVX, AmpliTube X-GEAR, RiffWorks T4 recording software, plus a collection of Sonic Reality’s AmpliGroove Jam Loops. The StealthPedal is compatible with all popular DAW software supporting ASIO and Core Audio drivers on both PC and Mac.

Plus, for a limited time only, all StealthPedal purchases will receive a free download of AmpliTube Metal software.
