Would it be possible to attach a bluetooth shield to the Arduino once the Stomp Shield is attached?

this depends on 2 things: 1. what pins does the bluetooth shield use? this is probably just the tx/rx pins, so probably ok. 2. how much CPU does it take up? this is dependent upon what you want them to do as well. if you just want to stream audio over bluetooth from the analog input of the arduino, then its fine. if you just want to have parameters on processed audio changed by inputs that come every so often from bluetooth, that is probably also doable. but if both functions are getting used heavily, then there wont be enough CPU time.

That's great thanks. As far as I know the bluetooth receiver will just use the TX/RX pins. I am planning on changing the audio processing parameters ONLY via bluetooth so hopefully that won't put too much of a load on the CPU. Thanks again.
