About This Listing

A sleeker editor, a powerful new cab simulator, and even more-immersive stereo FX make the third generation of Blackstar's ID:Core 40 combo the ultimate practice amp and an essential single-handed session tool. Choose from six inspiring amp voices that run the gamut from classic cleans to scorching leads. Dial in the perfect blend of American and British character with Blackstar's patented ISF control. Add gloss and dimension to your playing with built-in modulation, delay, and reverb effects as Blackstar's Super Wide Stereo technology envelops you in immersive sound. There's even an onboard TRRS Line In/Streaming jack so you can film guitar covers and capture performances directly onto your phone using sounds from the amp. And with the optional Blackstar PB-1 PowerBank (not included), you can get hours of remote use on the road. The ID:Core combo amplifier features two controls that allow you to design your own sound. First, a Voice control lets you switch among six overall voicings. Go between Clean Warm, Clean Bright, Crunch, Super Crunch, Overdrive 1, and Overdrive 2 voicings, depending on the music you want to play. The amp also offers an ISF control, which is a staple feature on high-end Blackstar amplifiers. By using the Voice control together with the ISF, you can easily dial in a variety of sounds, giving you the ability to bring the sounds you hear in your head to life. This is a stereo amplifier housed in a relatively compact housing, so you'll have the ability to select among 12 wide stereo effects as well. You can store these effects settings with your sound. While the amp features a broad array of hardware controls, you can also edit your sound much more comprehensively using Blackstar's deep editor software, which replaces the Insider app that came with the previous iteration of this series. A USB connector lets you to edit your tones with this software, and also facilitates the ability to record from your amp directly to your computer. With the built-in footswitch jack, the amp supports remote control over select functions by means of a separately available footswitch. Another upgrade over the previous iteration of this amplifier is a user-configurable Cab Rig output, which updates the emulated speaker output to give you a more realistic sound, allowing user-configurable controls for cabinet and room environments. Indeed, the Cab Rig software that corresponds to this output allows for similar controls to what you'd find on a high-end standalone cab-simulator product. The ID:CORE V3 amps are compatible with the PB-1 Power Bank so you can use your ID:CoreV3 anywhere, perfect forbusking or jamming on the go The Voice control has six different channels and when used together with Blackstar's patented ISF control you can get the exact tone you're thinking of Clean Warm: Classic clean, dynamic Clean Bright: Boutique, will break up when pushed hard Crunch: Classic medium-gain overdrive Super Crunch: More gain and punch than Crunch OD 1: Hot-rodded master volume overdrive OD 2: Mid-boosted overdrive Blackstar's unique superwide stereo technology gives you an immersive sound experience that will have you playing along to your MP3 backing tracks for hours 12 Stereo Effects 12 wide stereo effects are included
