Below are some of the main features of the INSIDER software. To get a full understanding of what INSIDER can do, please download it (free) and try it out for yourself. To take full advantage of what it has to offer, it should be connected to a compatible Blackstar digital amplifier.
Super Wide Stereo is available on ID:Core, recorded through the emulated out or USB on all ID:Series amplifiers, and live on the ID:260TVP.
Once you have created your personal profile, you have access to a worldwide network of users, including Official Blackstar Artists, with whom you can trade patches.
Set loop points using the IN and OUT markers in conjunction with altering the playback speed (without changing the pitch).
A metronome is a practice tool used to maintain a regular tempo. Blackstar INSIDER includes an electronic metronome which allows you to set a desired tempo.
Blackstar INSIDER software harnesses even more features within its settings. Enable professional features such as setting the overdrive noise gate, audio mode and Super Wide Stereo. The Blackstar INSIDER software really is the next level on top of your ID:Core / ID:Series amp and gives these ranges so much diversity and power.
Download INSIDER and see how much more you can do with your ID:Core and ID:Series.
Blackstar’s unique Super Wide Stereo technology gives you an immersive sound experience that will have you be playing along to your MP3 backing tracks for hours. You can now enable and disable it using INSIDER.
Switching on the Effects Loop transforms the Emulated Output and MP3/Line Input sockets into 'Preamp Out' (for sending a signal to your external effects) and 'Power Amp In' (for returning the effected signal to your amplifier).
This setting configures the audio being sent to your computer audio software via USB. You can select from a number of different combinations to achieve your desired recording. This defaults to a speaker emulated stereo output, but also included is the ability to send a clean guitar signal alongside a fully effected signal; this is very useful if you wish to ‘re-amp’ your audio track in the future.
The Noise Gate helps to reduce unwanted noise from the amplifier in between playing, and applies to both OD1 and OD2 Voices. There are 3 settings: 'OFF', 'LOW' and 'HIGH'. By default, the Noise Gate is active, using the 'LOW' setting.
