I agree. First thing I asked for was a way to plug in my StealthPedal to control it. There are also some ideas about switching effects on and off hands-free that don't require hardware, and we're open to suggestion.
Well a dock-connecting pedal is the only way I can think of. I'm not sure how else you could do it. The wah is also understandably kinda useless until that happens too. As neat as it is to have it change as you tilt the iPad, there's not a lot of real world use there :lol:
I'm not sure what the terms of licensing are for making devices that connect to the dock connector, but others have already done it (Alesis for recording, Line 6 for MIDI dump/recording).
It would really put Amplitube ahead of the competition if they were to do that. I would think people would be willing to pay $200 for something that would be a "Lite" version that maybe lacked the amount of switches and XLR outputs, but still had 1/4" in's and out's and an expression pedal jack.
Sonoma Wireworks is selling this
for $200, and there appears to be a market for it. I would think a simplified StompIO pedal of some sort would be an even easier sell.
