Re: Id 30 sound type selector switches by itself.

Yep, me to. I have an ID:260TVP, which I love to bits, but it's really annoying when you're playing at a gig, and the voice switch decides to change by itself!

Re: ID: series strong damping effect

I, for one, am very pleased with v1.8.0. You can turn off the noise gate altogether in both the crunch and super crunch voices. They now respond to playing dynamics exactly as they should.
Well done Blackstar! Thank you!

Re: ID: series strong damping effect

My sneaking suspicions were proved correct:
Blackstar Insider v1.8.0: "New ID:Series firmware with improved noise performance and the option to fully disable noise reduction"
Can't wait to get home, install it, and see what it's like!

Re: ID: series strong damping effect

I have a sneaking suspicion that Blackstar 'may' release a new firmware update that 'may' fix this strong damping effect problem. I was very fortunate to have spent a couple of hours on a Skype sessions with Blackstar's head dsp programmer... I was very impressed to say the least... Thank you again ...

Re: ID: series strong damping effect

It is my understanding that every ID series (apparently not in the Core series) amplifier sold would have this same problem. Why don't we all hit Blackstar support with constant emails demanding a resolution to this issue? It would be simple software fix...

Re: Weird decay

It is very frustr...
