    Yep, Blackstar is introducing a modelling amp. The TVP feature looks pretty cool.

    Kinda what I expected to see from their musings so far about MusikMesse. I'm intrigued to say the least on this.

    they are allowing you to select modelled Tubes from the front panel (EL84, 6V6, EL34, KT66, 6L6 and KT88) as well add effects and it also has 6 different channel voicings (Clean Warm, Clean Bright, Crunch, Super Crunch, OD1, OD 2). The ID Series also includes Blackstar’s ISF control and the ability to store up to 128 presets, you have a usb port on the front of the amp for downloading and uploading presets. An emulated output, MP3/line input and midi footswitching complete the package.
    So many options, it's crazy.

    Sounds like something really interesting, an addresses one of my biggest frustrations with people's attitude towards modelling amps: Too much focus on whether it sounds like the amp it's modelled after, and not enough focus on just whether it sounds good or not.
