The all-new Blackstar Architect software is the interface for controlling and customising many of the advanced features of compatible Blackstar products, including Cab Rig. Architect empowers you to design the sound in your head by unlocking deep editing of patches and providing fine control of your amplifier from your computer. Explore features such as a searchable patch library, and the ability to backup, archive and upload entire setlists of patches to your product. When the inevitable sonic writers block strikes, Architect has a new randomise feature for both amp tones and effects, providing inspiration and a great starting point for new musical ideas.
Cab Rig™ Lite is our next-generation DSP speaker simulator that reproduces the sound and feel of a miked up guitar cab in incredible detail. Impulse Response (IR) based speaker simulators are a great snapshot of a setup but they have inherent latency and potential phase issues when mixing more than one together. Our new advanced algorithm simulates a speaker, cabinet, mic and room with incredible detail with effectively zero latency, no phase mismatch and with much more flexibility than a ‘snapshot’ IR.
With Cab Rig™ Lite you can choose from a variety of different cabinets and microphones both on- and off-axis, along with EQ options. For when inspiration is required, use Cab Rig™ Lite’s randomise feature for endless combinations.
All in one place
Cab Rig™ Lite is accessed from our new Architect software which will be available for both PC and Mac. It has been developed from the ground up to be compatible with the latest and future operating systems, including Mac OS Catalina and Big Sur.
Immerse yourself in sound. 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. Hear your playing all around the room and amaze your audience with surround sound.
Infinite Shape Feature (ISF)
Get the exact tone you’re looking for, from USA to UK and everything in between.
The conventional three way guitar EQ network, or tone stack (a.k.a. Bass, Middle and Treble), is a key to the characteristic ‘voice’ of traditional guitar amplifiers. Classic amplifier designs have their own versions of this network which leads to their own tonal voicings. The ISF control allows you to infinitely adjust the response of the tone control network between any of the traditional voicings in a way that has never before been possible. In this way you can design your own sound and truly find ‘the sound in your head’.
