YouTube Preview Image

This video, via Moog Music, compares seven Moogerfooger analog effects pedals, in one sitting. 

Here’s what they have to say about the demo:

Unlike conventional stomp box effects, Moogerfoogers do not have limited sonic boundaries, they effortlessly conjure any sound you seek, or quickly create new and inspiring effects. In addition to this, nearly every knob is controllable via expression pedal for added control and motion during live performance. In this video you’ll see just a small range of what Moogerfoogers are capable of. With this much control and full analog signal path, the musical possibilities are close to infinite.

DigiTech Intros iStomp Programmable Effects Pedal

iStompAt the 2012 NAMM Show, DigiTech announced the iStomp pedal, a guitar stompboxe that lets you program the effect pedal with any sound you want – and change it at any time.

The iStomp connects to an iPod Touch, iPhone, or iPad, enabling musicians to load the effect of their choice into the iStomp.

The iStomp pedal connects to an Apple iOS device using the DigiTech Smart Cable that comes with the iStomp. Once connected, the DigiTech StompShop provides two of the most popular requested effects, the DigiTech Total Recall Delay and the DigiTech Redline Overdrive with the initial purchase.

The app also offers access to additional effects that iStomp owners can browse, try out, and purchase for their stompbox. The iStomp pedal has four knobs to control effects parameters, which change their function according to which effect is loaded.

iStomp makes trying out new sounds easier, too. Instead of having to go to a music store or look for online demos that might have been done with unfamiliar gear, a guitarist can try any pedal in the iStomp online store for free for up to 10 minutes – in their own home, using their own guitar and amp. Approximately 24 pedals will be offered initially, and the selection will expand to include exclusive pedals from DigiTech, officially licensed pedals from other manufacturers and classic legacy DigiTech and DOD products.

Multiple iStomp pedals can be authorized to the same iTunes account, allowing customers to purchase an effect once from the in-app store, and then load it into any iStomp pedal registered to them. All purchases are saved within the app, making it easy to build up a wide ranging effects collection.

The DigiTech iStomp will begin shipping in January 2012 at $229.95 suggested retail. The iStomp pedal comes with an iOS authorization cable, power supply and the two initial downloads. Additional downloads are available starting at $4.99 each.
