Architect Software

The all-new Blackstar Architect software is the interface for controlling and customizing many of the advanced features of upcoming Blackstar products, including Cab Rig. Architect is available for both PC and Mac, has been developed from the ground up to be compatible with the latest and future operating systems, including Mac OS Catalina and Big Sur.

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 randomize feature for both amp tones and effects, providing inspiration and a great starting point for new musical ideas.


Cab Rig Lite

Cab Rig is our next-generation DSP speaker simulator that reproduces the sound and feel of a mic’d up guitar cab in incredible detail. Cab Rig’s new advanced algorithm can simulate a speaker cabinet and room with effectively zero latency, no phase mismatch and much more flexibility than an IR snapshot. Deep-dive using the accompanying software to capture the incredible tones via USB / XLR out or headphones.

Cab Rig Lite software enables you to fine tune the simulated relationship between mic and speaker delivered through the Blackstar ID Core V3's direct USB recording output. Unlike ‘snapshot’ IRs these responses are customizable by the player.

The patented ISF control allows you to choose the exact tonal signature you prefer.
