    I was just looking at the iRig deal for my son the other day.

    The one you posted is defiantly more useable in the real performance world though, especially since you can't play the guitar and jack with your iPode/iPhone at the same time. Speaking of foot pedals I did find one at Goodwill the other day that works great with my S4.

    Looks pretty cool, kind of like a giant LPD8. I wonder how easy it is to activate those pads wearing sneakers?

    I've been building a distortion pedal for an audio electronics assignment and have some spare components and a case, have been considering building a multi footswitch for FX with max or pd for a patch.

    The build quality on that doesn't seem like it would stand up to much.

    I would be afraid that i would smash it. Definitely doesn't look too sturdy.

    And they need buttons that light up, not little LED's next to the button.

    hello-
    Tom from KMI here. This is an older thread, but hopefully I can still get some helpful information to you all. Here we go...

    You can connect SoftStep to an iPad or iPod Touch running iOS 4.2 or higher by using the camera connection kit into the D30 port. This leaves the audio-in jack free and open for a guitar/bass/keys to send audio into the device. In theory, you could affect the audio signal using SoftStep to control DSP software. I say 'in theory' because it is dependent on the DSP software's ability to receive MIDI data.

    Here's a cool video of us controlling a soft synth on the iPad using SoftStep:

    Well... I wear a size 14 sneaker, and I have no problems playing SoftStep.
    One cool thing about the software is that when you activate a pad, it freezes out all the other pads. This makes it easy to single out individual pads, even for a Sasquatch like me.
    Oh, and if you'd like to be able to use multiple keys at once: no problem.
    There's an option to turn on multiple key mode in the SoftStep 'settings' window.

    Yes it is small and flat, but I don't think you could smash it unless you REALLY tried to. It's built with structurally reinforced carbon fiber and resilient, water resistant elastomer. It's both smash proof and spill proof.
