SALT LAKE CITY — DigiTech, a Harman brand, recently took the wraps off its iStomp pedal, meant for use with Apple devices.

The iStomp pedal (currently shipping for a $229 suggested retail) connects to an iPod Touch, iPhone or iPod using the included Smart Cable. After the app is downloaded, users can purchase effects for the iStomp. Two effects are included with the initial purchase: the DigiTech Total Recall Delay and the DigiTech Redline Overdrive. Effects can also be tried out for up to five minutes.

The iStomp pedal was designed with four knobs to control effects parameters, which change their function according to which effect is loaded, DigiTech said.

About 24 pedals will be offered initially, it said, for $4.99 each. The selection will reportedly be expanded to include exclusive pedals from DigiTech, officially licensed pedals from other manufacturers, and classic legacy DigiTech and DOD products.

Users will also be to authorize multiple iStop pedals to the same iTunes account, so they will be able to load an effect onto any iStomp pedal that’s registered to them, according to the company.
