If you want to play at home, you need to buy a combo, stomps, a wah, a volume, a tuner pedal, etc. If you want to record your riffs you ought to buy a dedicated USB audio IF that can be used especially for guitar and bass, a midi IF, a mixer, mics, software for recording, drum loops and sounds, etc. These cost more money than an average musician can afford. That is a lot of stuff, lots of cables that collect a lot of noise and interference and finally degrade your sound.
What’s the solution?
You need a StealthPedal! It is a dedicated USB guitar/bass audio and midi interface with award winning pedal, amp, cabinet and microphone simulator software for guitar and bass. Certainly you can record your band-mates’ performances, too, you can connect synths, mics or almost anything. You will also have a real time midi controller that controls your ultimate rig, so you indeed have opportunities!
If you are a Pro, you can use it with Mainstage as an audio interface and a controller (you can switch presets and use it as a volume or wah pedal), you can play with your band on the stage in perfect sync. You can use the same rig (and the same controller) in the studio, on stage, in rehearsals and at home. You will never need to buy a pedal again!
Have I mentioned that this pedal is USB powered? Your guitar signal is instantly converted into digital format without any loss of your signal. There is no need to buy a horribly priced dedicated foot-switch cable or a professionally shielded and filtered power supply.
Use your Stealth outputs for your dedicated monitor or you can plug your in-ear headphone system in the pedal like many Pro users do on big stages. You can route your signal according to your own needs, and if you want to hear a metronome in your control, no problem.
This pedal is a low cost solution with the quality of high end equipment that will accompany you from the first riffs to the big stages!
Stealth will definitely not “steal” your money!

This pedal rocks! I would use it to record my music with my computer. Once I learn all the features I would use it when I do live performances. One pedal with all of this power has to be part of my assortment of instruments. I would tell my musician friends about it and spread the word about how great a product it is. STEALTH PEDAL ROCKS!!

Guitar + StealthPedal + laptop = ninja commando live rig (poor, unemployed roadies), fewer late-night visits by the police/neighbors with pitchforks, and consistent tracking capabilities anywhere, anytime.
Or to make Tolkien spin in his grave: “One interface to rule them all, and in the darkness bind them”, heh.

On the 6th day God created man…and then God said “man’s guitar sounds like crap, and he needs a way to hook it up to his computer to control his sounds—because look, we are talking about guitar players and they are not that bright and they are notoriously using bad sounds as if they were all taught about tone by a stoned Pat Matheny circa 1983, but I digress—and it would be cool if it could be mass produced in a compact, wah-style pedal that is built tough enough to use live on a regular basis, but it can also play an integral part in recording by controlling the included “Powered by Amplitube” software…hey I am God I can do what ever the hell I want—and tat is when he created the stealth pedal. It may have taken a few thousand years…but it’s worth it…

My comment is simple. Compared to the pedals that I learned to play on, the Stealth Pedal is state of the art! Every recording artist has a need for new and modern equipment, some a necessity, and others, just to have them for the fun of it! This I feel would win the vote for both! I can’t really comment on too much, because I live in Northern Wisconsin, where the nearest “real” music store is 3 1/2 hours away, so I haven’t actually had the pleasure to try one, but the short description given above leads me to believe that this is a top notch pedal for any given job, live or studio. The fact that it had MIDI control capabilities, and can be used in any setting with guitar or keyboard is just awesome! Owning one of these would be a small treasure to any musicians collection.
