    possible....anything's possible if you have support from the manufacturer

    developers do not have the tools to make this

    will you ever see this app? no

    should I provide details to why?

    And where yould plug in the Guitar? What about the line out to the amp?

    What about use, should you figure out the input/output. They call them stomp boxes for a reason, and I'm pretty sure you wouldn't want to be stepping on your shiny new phone.

    Sooo..
    You would have to plug your guitar INTO an iPod Dock
    and then OUT OF a 3.5mm jack to an amp...

    Possibility? None.

    And a PEDAL needs to be stood on to operate.
    And last time I checked, your iPod only recognised some sort of electro magnetic pulse that emitted from your finger - And my shoes don't have that installed.

    I can picture this scenario though. A device that plugs into the phone's serial port that has two pedals on it. One main pedal, which can be programmed by using the phone itself. This could in effect be one of the best modeling pedals made, with the right expandability. The second pedal could be used between switching among an array of settings.

    Example, pedal 1, set to a slow phase with a medium overdrive (similar to Led Zeppelin's "Nobody's Fault But Mine"). Then the next song in the set could call for a lot of reverb, a slight delay, and minimal distortion (or anything else imaginable). Using the second pedal could switch the functions of the next pedal to the next predefined pedal type.
