Introducing the new DigiTech iStomp™ - a stompbox with a very big difference ...
The iStomp™ works just like every other stompbox. Step on the footswitch to turn it on and off. Adjust the knobs to get the sound you want. The biggest difference between the iStomp and other stompboxes is you can completely change the iStomp to be any pedal in the entire pedal line. Simply connect your iPod touch®, iPhone®, or iPad® to the iStomp and select which pedal you’d like from the DigiTech® Stomp Shop™ App. In about the same time it takes to download a song you can change the iStomp from a distortion to a reverb, a phaser to a tube overdrive, or a delay to a chorus.
iStomp includes DigiTech’s Total Recall™ digital delay and Redline™ overdrive to get you started.

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.
DigiTech Stomp Shop App
The DigiTech Stomp Shop is your connection to the complete line of iStomp pedals. From the app you can turn your iStomp into a completely different pedal, any pedal available in the Stomp Shop. In about the same time it takes to download a song you can change the iStomp from a distortion to a reverb, a phaser to a tube overdrive, or a delay to a chorus. The DigiTech Stomp Shop app is free to download from the App Store.
Stomp Shop Pedals
There are more than 20 different pedals to choose from with many more pedals coming soon. Each iStomp comes with two pedals-Total Recall Digital Delay and Redline Overdrive. The first time you connect to your iStomp you can choose one more pedal from the different DigiTech pedals for only $0.99. After that you can download new pedals for as little as $4.99.
