Blackstar IDCORE40 overview

  • 1Description

The ID:Core Stereo 40 from Blackstar is a 2x 20W two-channel entry-level combo guitar amplifier with twelve stereo effects, six Voice channels, and a stereo MP3/line in for jamming along with your favorite tracks or listening to music with Super Wide Stereo sound. It can be used for a variety of applications such as practicing or recording at home, rehearsing with a band, recording in the studio, or performing live.

The ID:Core combo amplifier features two unique controls which allow you to custom design your own sound. The Infinite Shape Filter (ISF) and the Voice control. The Voice control has the following settings: Clean Warm, Clean Bright, Crunch, Super Crunch, Overdrive 1, and Overdrive 2. 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.

In addition to its Super Wide Stereo design, the ID:Core's effects section delivers modulation, delay, and reverb effects simultaneously, which you can store with your sound. The Blackstar Insider software is used to edit and store up to six of your patches and can be uploaded and downloaded via the online community.

Finally, a USB connector allows you to record from your amp directly to your computer. An emulated speaker output and MP3/line input completes the package.

Infinite Shape Filter (ISF)
The ISF control allows you to choose the exact tonal signature you prefer. Fully counterclockwise has a more American characteristic with a tight bottom end and more aggressive middle, and fully clockwise has a British characteristic which is woodier and less aggressive
Six Voice Channels
The Voice control has six different channels - Clean Warm, Clean Bright, Crunch, Super Crunch, Overdrive 1, and Overdrive 2
12 Effects
12 vintage-style studio-quality effects - four modulation, four delay, and four reverb effects
