Blackstar’s new ID:Series represents a truly groundbreaking achievement, combining unique innovations, an intuitive traditional control set and the versatility of programmability.
In the nine years since its launch, Blackstar has led the way in the innovation of guitar amplification. The ID: Series represents the culmination of more than seven years technical research and development. The unique controls allow you to custom design your own sound, store it and then have the confidence that the amp will perform in a live environment.
Blackstar’s patent-applied-for True Valve Power offers six distinctly different power valve responses – EL84, 6V6, EL34, KT66, 6L6, KT88. When engaged it delivers the response, dynamics, sag and break-up characteristics of a valve amp and uniquely delivers the same acoustic power output as an equivalent valve power amp. This means that for the first time ever, in an affordable series of amplifiers, these products deliver live without compromise – True Valve Power means loud as valve.
The Voice control has six different channels – Clean Warm, Clean Bright, Crunch, Super Crunch, OD 1, OD 2. When used together with Blackstar’s patented ISF control you can get the exact tone you’re thinking of. The effects section delivers studio quality modulation, delay and reverb effects simultaneously that you can store with your sound.
Deep editing and storing of patches is simple using the supplied Blackstar Insider software. Patches can be shared, uploaded and downloaded via our online community. The USB connector also allows you to record your amp directly to your computer.
An emulated output, MP3/line input and midi footswitching functionality complete the package. By using the unique Voice control, patented ISF and patent-applied-for True Valve Power, these amplifiers allow unparalleled flexibility and ease of use, enabling you to in effect, design the sound in your head and deliver it live as loud as valve. Individuality is power!
INSIDER SOFTWARE – DEEPER EDITING FOR ID:SERIES AND ID:CORE
Deep editing and storing of patches is simple using Blackstar’s free INSIDER software. This simple and intuitive interface lets you create, edit and store patches for your ID:Series or ID:Core amplifier, build a library of patches on your computer, and share them with our online community.
