Darkglass Electronics Announces the Element

A cab sim and headphone amp wrapped inside a minimalist design.

Helsinki, Finland (July 1, 2020) -- An Element to handle the very core task of every musician.

With a uniquely innovative approach, the Element provides truly inspired options to enhance a fundamental need for the modern musician.

Inspired by the touch sensor technology used in our Hyper Luminal Compressor, the Element is completely minimalistic with a plain surface and zero knobs. The three fully-tactile slider potentiometers with positioning LED’s that render it appealing and extremely intuitive to use.

One comprehensive device, that out of the box offers a bank of 5 cabinet simulations, and the ability to add many more through the Darkglass Suite, Bluetooth technology to listen to backing tracks while playing, rehearsing, or studying. Two headphone outputs to allow interaction within players. XLR output to connect between the preamp and interface or PA.

Fully compatible with guitars, bass, or any kind of instrument, the Element comes as a reward to a team that pushed modern necessity and technology further. Designed by musicians for musicians, during these unique times, where we all need to stay safe at home...making music!
