Anaheim, CA (March 13, 2008) - Here''s a video of IK Multimedia''s Dan Boatman explaining StompIO. Shot at NAMM ''08, this runthrough sums up the power that StompIO puts at your feet -- all the tone-shaping AmpliTube parameters you''re used to manipulating with a mouse are accessible with the same feel of a traditional hardware floor processor. In other words -- there''s no reason to think of AmpliTube software and plug-ins as studio-only solutions. StompIO''s stage footprint allows you to power your live sound as if you were recording.

StompIO also comes with five software packages: AmpliTube 2, Ampeg SVX, AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix, AmpliTube Metal and AmpliTube X-GEAR. This gives you 150 superior sounding models, 74 effects 51 stomps, 26 amps, 33 cabinets, 11 mics and 23 rack effects on two rigs.

The emotional wallop of the acoustic guitar sometimes flies under the radar. Even if you mostly play electric, here are some things to consider about unplugging.

I have a love-hate relationship with acoustic guitars. My infatuation with the 6-string really blasted off with the Ventures. That’s the sound I wanted, and the way to get it was powered by electricity. Before I’d even held a guitar, I knew I wanted a Mosrite, which I was sure was made of fiberglass like the surfboards the Beach Boys, Surfaris, and the Challengers rode in their off time. Bristling with space-age switchgear and chrome-plated hardware, those solidbody hotrod guitars were the fighter jets of my musical dreams. I didn’t even know what those old-timey round-hole guitars were called. As the singing cowboys Roy Rogers and Gene Autrey strummed off into the sunset, the pace of technology pushed the look and sound of the electric guitar (and bass) into the limelight and into my heart. Imagine my disappointment when I had to begin my guitar tutelage on a rented Gibson “student” acoustic. At least it sort of looked like the ones the Beatles occasionally played. Even so, I couldn’t wait to trade it in.
