6 Classic Blackstar Voices
The unique 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.
Super Wide Stereo
Blackstar’s unique Super Wide 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 vintage style studio quality effects - 3x modulation, 3x delay and 3x reverb effects, specially voiced for electric guitar and delivered in massive SUPER WIDE STEREO.
The ISF control works in conjunction with the Tone control. It allows you to choose the exact tone signature you prefer. Fully CCW is a more American characteristic with a tight bottom end and more aggressive middle, and fully CW is a British characteristic which is more ‘woody’ and less aggressive.
Speaker Emulated Output

Plug the amp in to a mac or PC with the USB connection. This will give enable you to edit patches, record and re-amp audio and much more via the GUI.
Dual Speaker Outputs
The ID:Core Stereo 40H features dual speaker outputs to connect to two cabinets at the same time giving a Super Wide Stereo effect.
