Just got the Axe i/o and works perfectly with iPad Pro 3rd Gen. Both channels record independent as well on my daw. Not sure if they made a update, but I’m very satisfied with this purchase.

It is possibile to know which DAC the AXE has got? Thanks.

Paul, I'm assuming you're asking about the digital to analog converter (DAC) and the analog to digital converter (ADC). It's on the product spec page:

Thanks, dlgebert!

So I'd like to know if the AXE can handle an high impedance headphone or I should get a dedicated amp... :?:

According to Wikipedia:

Wikipedia wrote:high-impedance headphones are about 100-600 ohms. As the impedance of a pair of headphones increases, more voltage (at a given current) is


I use Sony MDR-7506 headphones and they are rated at 63 Ohms and at 1/4 headphone volume, the AXE I/O is plenty loud with no distortion.

Going back the AXE I/O spec:

What is your headphones' impedance?

Thanks again, Dave! ;)


My headphones' impedance is 250 Ohms... :?

Well at least you know the AXE I/O won't overpower your headphones... it would up to you to try it out and see how it sounds...

I'm using 250ohm headphones. I've never turned the headphone volume knob past 3:00. I'm positive you'd have enough volume even with 600ohm cans.

Hello all,

I have the Axe I/O and there are 2 external control (switch/pedal 1 & 2) ins at the back of my device.
I'd like to have pedalboard controller connected to one of these. The iRig Stomp I/O seems to be perfect for this though I have some questions:

- is it possible to connect to the axe and not via USB (to the computer) ?
- I read that iRig Stomp I/O is much more than a pedalboard. Is using it as such an error about all this product can offer ?
- what would you recommend to have my Axe I/O working with a pedalboard (switches and expression pedal) to control Amplitube in my DAW ?

Best regards
Goupil70

Hello,

I have one more question: is it possible to connect the iRig Stomp I/O to my computer with a usb-C cable ?

Thank you

Hello Goupil70 and welcome to the forum.

As this is primarily a user to user forum, someone-else may chime in. Meanwhile, the best thing to do is raise a Support Ticket, here for some one to one investigation and help (US (East Coast) Business hours, generally). Response time is usually within 2 working days, but in the current circumstances please allow some more time.
