Using the optional REMOTE1 foot pedal, all of AMP1’s functions can be directly selected via 9 switches and can be stored in 4 Banks (with 9 Presets each). Consistent with the Presets, REMOTE1’s MIDI out can be used to switch programmes on external MIDI-capable effect devices. Alternatively, the optional MIDI1 Adapter allows players to control AMP1 with any MIDI foot pedal.
For players who want to integrate their favourite FX pedals into the AMP1 guitar system, the optional Looper-Kit extension (featuring four true bypass relay loops) is available, making tap dancing and sound loss on the pedalboard a thing of the past. Details: REMOTE1 is the convenient foot controller with direct access to all of AMP1’s functions, and it also offers the following extensions: a second switchable and adjustable Master Volume and an adjustable PowerSoak. REMOTE1 lets you directly select between the CLEAN, VINTAGE, CLASSIC and MODERN channels, as well enabling you to control BOOST, REVERB and FX-LOOP settings. In addition you can save VOLUME (CLEAN CHANNEL) and GAIN (OVERDRIVE CHANNELS) for each preset separately.A standard jack lead (guitar or speaker cable) connects REMOTE1 to AMP1, and also powers the unit simultaneously. Selecting “Preset Mode” (the Mode Switch will go blue) turns AMP1 into a programmable guitar amp.
Every selection made with the footswitch in Direct Access Mode can be saved in one of the 36 Presets in 4 Banks à 9 Presets. For example, you can save the same tones with different volumes and effects as rhythm and solo sounds. PRESETS and switching external FX Presets with MIDI out: this makes AMP1 a programmable guitar system with MIDI. With each Preset, REMOTE1 sends a MIDI program change command via the MIDI-OUT port to switch external MIDI-enabled effects equipment. This way, with a simple press of the foot you can control all of AMP1’s functions and switch a MIDI effect to the desired Preset all at the same time.

Those who want to program their own favourite pedals with REMOTE1 to avoid any unnecessary tap dancing can use the LOOPERKIT, with its four true bypass mono relay loops. The true bypass connection guarantees an optimal signal quality. The four loops can be individually assigned to each Preset, allowing the connected FX to be combined with AMP1’s settings. The LOOPERKIT is screwed on to the side of REMOTE1, while the external pedals are cabled through a Breakout Box.

Inspired by the excellent performance of the FATCAB, the cabinet that I used and tweaked over the last years, I set myself the task of developing a compact, but good-sounding Box, complimentary to the BluGuitar AMP1 .
The only loudspeaker that came into question for me was a 12“, because I always miss the fundamental low-mid range with 10“ speakers. Therefore, the 12“ speaker determined the size of the cabinet. On this basis we experimented with the dimensions of the casing and various bass-reflex constructions. We quickly came to a realization: An opening in the casing provides a higher bass resonance, which gives clean and slightly distorted sounds a special airiness, but the opening shouldn’t be too big. If so, you lose the important resonance and the box sounds “small”. However the optimum punch for rock sounds is best achieved with a closed cabinet. This is how we came to the idea of the NANOCABs small opening, which can easily be opened or closed according to your needs. To create more warmth the speaker was mounted to the baffle and a basket weave covering was chosen.
While testing different prototypes we had surprising results: It didn’t matter what style I played - whether clean, crunched or high gain - jazz, blues or rock – the combination of NANOCABand AMP1 sounds perfect! Thanks to the bass-reflex harmonization, the NANOCAB produces a really big sound with unexpected low-end. It is also my absolute favourite for living rooms, because it has such a full and balanced sound, even at low volume. Furthermore it’s astounding how well this small box establishes itself in a band context. The NANOCAB fits in a suitcase and, thanks to its compact design, can even be transported by plane, train or on a motorcycle.
The BluGuitar NANOCAB is the smallest 1x12“ box with the biggest sound – a real recommendation as a compact cabinet, without any real competitors.

The BluGuitar FATCAB is the result of my many years of trying to capture the sound-character of an old 4x12“ box in a compact 1x12“ format.
Obviously I know that physics sets us limits, but I still find it surprising how well this box works for me in practice. It has proved its worth on small to midsized stages over the years, where its advantages really come to light: Because the box only has one speaker it quickly reaches its optimum working range, making the sound vibrant and less stiff. The Thiele Bass-Reflex-System and the interlocked, extremely stiffened casing provide a defined, dynamic Bass sound with Sub-bass, usually only associated with 4x12“ boxes. This is still the case even when playing at a lower volume. The volume of the casing delivers an extra portion of low-midrange frequency. At high volume the box delivers a balanced sound, without any danger of droning or loosing the tight bootom due to the fat magnet of our custom designed speaker. The speaker itself gives the sound a harmonious mid-range and soft treble, which are made even silkier by being filtered through the thick basket-weave covering the front of the box.
A big chunky bass with a quick response, a creamy mid-range and a soft silky treble on top, which stays smooth and doesn’t get annoying. For me, the FATCAB sounds and feels like an old Mini 4x12“ box. In clubs and on medium-sized stages, I don’t miss having a 4x12“ box at all.

Guitarists are a strange breed. They love modifications just as long as nothing actually changes. Never change a winning team is their approach: the favourite guitar, the good old amp and that particular speaker cabinet. The final link in the chain is the defining resonating body to capture the magical sound.
Electric guitarists looking for the perfect way to mike up for live or for recording now have one of the simplest and most workable solutions available - which also sets new standards in sound quality. Brought together in a compact, lightweight metal box are 16 legendary speaker cabinets. Drawing on 30 years of both stage and studio experience, I have put together a collection of my own. Recorded with the best microphones and digitally converted using today´s cutting-edge Convolution Technologie, locking down every detail. But why conserve the sounds digitally? Simply because analogue equipment cannot capture all the acoustic complexities and nuances the speakers produce. Convolution Technologie on the other hand is able to reproduce the complete array of tones and the uniqueness of each cabinet down to the last detail.

THE 4 PREAMPS OF THE AMP1™ IRIDIUM EDITION
Three independent, discrete OVERDRIVE channels deliver rich and tight distortion sounds that can be changed in gain structure and timbre. Each of these channels offers different attack, response and dynamics. The CLEAN channel with its massive headroom and treble reserves gives even mid-heavy humbuckers transparent, sparkling clean sounds.
MODERN – With its extremely high gain reserves, this channel delivers crystal-clear string separation through a massive low-cut, and the Custom Control TONE knob lets you dial from a “cut thru the mix” solo sound to the typical “maximum brutality” mid scoop.
CLASSIC – Due to the hard distortion characteristics and the specially tuned bass filter, this channel is percussive and significantly wider and harder in the mid-range than VINTAGE. The mid-range can be shaped by the Custom Control TONE from “Hot Rodded British High Gain” to “German wall of sound“.
VINTAGE – Tight and mid-emphasized woody sounds that are transmitted tightly especially using extreme low tunings while delivering creamy mid- range distortion.
CLEAN – Massive headroom thanks to the 100 watt power amp and treble reserves, which give even mid-emphasized humbuckers a transparent, sparkling clean sound. Optimal platform for pedals like shimmer reverb, modulation or delay.
BOOST & NOISE GATE
The AMP1™ Iridium Edition features an adjustable gain/boost function that is placed in front of all four channels like a pedal, as well as a metal-essential, high-efficiency noise gate with three different levels of sensitivity.
BOOST – Use the custom control knob to adjust the amount of gain. It has a moderate mid hump to give cleaner sounds more definition, or to give overdriven sounds more gain without turning muddy.
Cranked all the way up, it will sound more like an overdriven preamp or a Tube Screamer, giving you even richer tones for creamy yet tight overdrive sounds.
NOISE GATE – The Noise Gate offers three positions:
METAL: Extremely fast and hard. High gain playing and staccato riffs become sharper, and palm muted parts clean up with no unwanted noise.
OFF: In this position, the noise gate is deactivated.
SOFT: In this position the Noise Gate is extremely sensitive and responds to the lowest signals, so the quietest nuances are still audible without being cut off.
The loudspeaker simulation of the AMP1™ Iridium Edition is analog and is voiced specially for metal sounds. A special Current Feedback creates an authentic tube amp feel with punch and bite.
In order to realize even more authentic loudspeaker simulations, "IR" (impulse responses) are also often used. To do this, the internal (analog) speaker simulation of the AMP1™ Iridium Edition can be turned off, so you can use the impulse responses of your favorite cabinet.

BLUGUITAR AMP X : The future of guitar amplification
With four decades of being a sound designer, BluGuitar owner Thomas Blug came up with the idea of creating an all analog Nanotube™ guitar amp design that is fexible enough to (re)-create any amp that he could think of - those that have excited us in the past as well as any ideas that might come in the futue.
With this in mind, Thomas and his team developed the gound-breaking Neural Analog Amp™ design, which offers the capab...ility to edit and save analog circuit parameters at a component level - like a „virtual soldering iron“ for analog amp tuning, using a state-of-the-art 8-core processor.
Combined with BluGuitar’s 100 watts Nanotube™ power amp stage, wouldn’t this be the most powerful guitar amplifier ever
... a collection of the best tube amps of all time, in fully analog original quality, united in a single device.
... you could freely combine these amps with all your favorite effects (analog, digital, mono, stereo) and an extensive speaker collection (based on IRs, with great dynamics) and store them in presets.
... a huge online library of vintage amps. You'd find rare classics, priceless boutique amps, and unique sounds that you can transfer to your amp at any time.
... your whole guitar rig shrinks down to just one pedal-sized device.
