Blackstar INSIDER v1.9.0 is now officially supported up to macOS Mojave 10.14!
Due to fundamental changes within the new macOS, Blackstar INSIDER is not currently supported on macOS Catalina (10.15). This change is currently affecting software and hardware products across the audio industry, and we therefore strongly recommend that in order to maintain functionality with INSIDER (and many other audio products) you should remain on current versions of macOS (up to Mojave 10.14) as the latest compatible Mac operating system until further notice.
As part of Adobe’s plan to phase out Flash Player in 2020, this plugin has already been blocked in some areas of the Safari browser in macOS. As Flash Player is used for downloading patches from the Blackstar Online Community within INSIDER, Mac users will instead need to download patches via a traditional web browser, outside of INSIDER software.
As this withdrawal of Flash Player progresses, all INSIDER users may use the following link to download patches for their Blackstar digital products: www.blackstarinsider.co.uk/site/register.php Files must be downloaded to the relevant folders within ‘Documents/Blackstar’ on your computer for Blackstar INSIDER to be able to access them.
Deep editing and storing of patches is made simple using Blackstar's free INSIDER software. This simple and intuitive interface lets you create, edit and store patches for your Silverline Series, ID:Series or ID:Core amplifiers. Build a library of patches on your computer and share them with our Online Community.
In addition to giving you visual control over your Silverline, ID:Core or ID:Series amp, INSIDER is packed with handy features to help you improve your playing including a chromatic tuner, a built-in audio player for jamming along with your favourite MP3s and a 'phrase trainer' that allows you to loop and time-stretch passages so you can nail those tricky chords and riffs!
Control your Silverline, ID:Core or ID:Series amp directly from the software. Also see changes made on the amp in real-time within INSIDER.
Add in your effects via the INSIDER software. Use the controls to fine tune exactly how much of each effect you want.
Jam along to your favourite backing tracks using the built-in audio section. Speed up or slow down these tracks to practice.
Is your guitar out of tune? Access the built-in chromatic tuner with a large and accurate display, when connected to a compatible amplifier.
