Griffin Technology Announces the Availability of StompBox for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch

Nashville, Tenn. – July 25, 2011 –  Griffin Technology Inc., makers of innovations for everyday life, is excited to announce that StompBox is now available. StompBox is a programmable multi-functional foot controller that enables virtual guitar effects.

Designed to work with any instrument that takes a 1/4-inch jack such as a guitar, bass guitar, electric violin and keyboard, StompBox was created to work with Frontier Design’s iShred LIVE app. The combination of StompBox and iShred LIVE allows musicians to switch effects with their feet, without taking their hands off the instrument.

StompBox is packaged with the Griffin GuitarConnect cable to enable simultaneous connection to instruments, headphones and an iOS device. Using iShred LIVE, the individual foot switches can be assigned to control different effects within the app, turning your device into a stage-worthy effects rig.


Features and functions of StompBox include:

  • 4 button foot controller – brings professional quality foot-switch functionality to iPhone, iPad or iPod touch
  • Assignable foot-activated switches – easily assign StompBox’s switches for instrumental performance or for presentations
  • 1/4-inch jack – accommodates variable input pedals like volume or wah-wah
  • 1 meter heavy-duty dock connector cable – easily link StompBox to iPad, iPhone or iPod touch
  • GuitarConnect cable – three-connector cable for simultaneous connection to iOS device, instrument, and headphones, PA or amp
StompBox is not just for musicians. Its programmable controls also work with Qscript, Griffin’s teleprompter app for iPad. Using StompBox with Qscript you can control text scrolling and other presentation functions with one foot.
