For most, the iPad satiates one’s need for watching videos, surfing the net and other sorted activies.  But for others its range of capabilities are much more alluring, especially for those cut from the cloth of a musician.

The Stompbox from Griffin works in tandem with Frontier Design’s iShred LIVE guitar app, which let’s you jam out on your iPad to a variety of settings and controls.  The Stompbox facilitates real time switching of guitar effects directly within the iShred LIVE app without the need to remove your hands from your instrument and place them on to the tablet – it’s all down by the way of the foot.  Each switch is assignable and effectively recreates the experience of an actual pedalboard with an almost endless array of options.

Griffin is mum on a launch date, but the price will be $99.99 and includes a heavy-duty dock connector cable.
