Blacksun by audioassault - FREE until the 1st of December

Recommended Posts

I know I've nothing to lose by trying it myself, but just wondered whether some have already done so? What do you think?

I haven't played a Blackstar amp in likley 15-20 years.   So I'm judgeing it mostly on its own merits.

The high gain channel is crazy high gain to absurd range, unusable for pretty much anything but metal or similar.  Like a swarm of bees.

Low gain side has a more usable range but cranking the master introduces unplesant artifcat-like sounds, so keeping that in check and setting the gain and eq right, there is some usable stuff in there.

The tone is about what I'd expect outside of the absurd gain on tap, but in terms of feel, dynamics and response, I'd say it isn't up to par with some of the better paid in the box amps out there.  

If I didn't have an arsenal of paid options, I'd be very grateful to have this for free.

Like you @Brian Walton I have a similar arsenal of paid for sims. I don’t think this one will add anything for me personally. In fact, I honestly don’t need any more amp sims. Ever. Honest!
