The Voice control offers a selection of six channels - Clean Warm, Clean Bright, Crunch, Super Crunch, OD1, OD2. When used together with Blackstar's patented ISF (Infinite Shape Feature) control and the True Valve Power mode, these amplifiers allow unparalleled flexibility in enabling players to design 'the sound in your head.'
The effects section delivers studio quality modulation, delay and reverb effects that can be used simultaneously and stored with user sounds.
Deep editing and storing of up to 128 patches can be easily done using the supplied Blackstar GUI software and USB connector. Patches can then be shared and uploaded/downloaded via the online community. The USB connector also allows for direct recording to a computer, or re-amping guitar tracks. A speaker emulated output, MP3/line input and MIDI footswitching (60W and 100W) complete the package.
Blackstar Amplification Technical Director, Bruce Keir, notes, "I grew up around valve [tube] amps, playing and designing them from an early age. Since then, I've developed amps in all technologies. For me, amp design has always been about applying elegant engineering solutions to enhance the creative experience of musicians. In this way, these amps represent the culmination of my life's work."
