yeah they are, i have the single stomp which i can use with the iPhone/ipad app but when you buy this you get £150 worth of extra software/effects/ampmodelers etc so i'm already used to using it but not with added nobs and stuff. plus this can be used as a looper quite nicely
selling my old interface pedal if anyone wants to try it
it's also compatible with the tabpro app and you choose the tab you want, lets say Jimi Henrix - voodoo Chile and the software emulates that exact guitar sound for that song. very cool for bedroom playing.
