Cutting-edge Cab Sim and Headphone Amp

The Darkglass Element is a state-of-the-art cabinet simulator and headphone amp in a compact pedal format. You won’t find any knobs on the Element’s top panel. It uses Darkglass’s proprietary touch-sensor technology with three tactile sliders and positioning LEDs, so you can set your parameters quickly and see them easily when lights are low. Out of the box, the Element offers five cabinet simulations, and you can add many more via the Darkglass Suite.

Sleek, comprehensive design

The Darkglass Element also features Bluetooth streaming for playing along with your favorite tracks and two headphone jacks for jamming with other musicians. An XLR output allows for plugging directly into a PA system or your audio interface. The Element’s advanced functionality is packed into a sleek, knobless pedal — a design that’s extremely rugged and will stand up to the heaviest touring schedules. On its right side is the XLR jack and a ground lift button switch. Its left side is fitted with a 1/4-inch input, switchable 12 and 30dB pads, a 3.5mm TRS aux input, a 1/4-inch parallel output for connection to an amp, and a USB-C port for connecting to your computer.


Features:

  • Instrument / line / amp input with switchable 0dB, -12dB, -30dB pads
  • 900W amplifier (with external load) may be connected to input
  • Parallel output for connection to an amp
  • Aux In: 3.5mm TRS input lets you practice to backing tracks
  • Bluetooth: Stereo audio (A2DP) supports impulse loading via Darkglass Suite
  • XLR output: balanced output for connection to PA, audio interface, etc.
  • Dynamic range: 105dB, A-weighted; sample rate: 48kHz
  • Resolution: 24-bit conversion / Latency: 2.2ms
  • Impulse response: 5 impulse slots and bypass setting
  • Headphones: 2 stereo outputs with individual volume controls and blend
  • USB: A USB-C Mac/PC connection for loading cabinet simulation impulse responses and controlling other settings
  • Supply voltage: 9V–12V DC, center negative
  • Current consumption: 250mA

Cabsim

Toggle the cabinet simulation on/off on the Direct Output. This switch completely bypasses all digital circuits and allows you to get a zero-latency signal when needed.

Blend

A touch sensitive slider to set the blend between the main input (Instrument/Amp in) and the backing track (Bluetooth/Aux in) for the headphone out mix.

Phones

Two touch sensitive volume control sliders, one for each headphone output.

Darkglass Suite App (macOS, Windows, iOS & Android)

An application for desktop and mobile platforms that unlocks extra features on the Element, such as two different types of graphic EQs, tube power amp simulations, and access to a growing library of high-quality IR cabinet simulations. The desktop version also enables firmware updates and loading your own 3rd party cabinet simulations.

USB-C audio interface

Record your ideas wherever you are by connecting the Element to your PC or Mac (on macOS no drivers needed).

The instrument input records on two tracks, one with cabinet simulation and one without any effects.

Recording of stereo sources is also possible via the aux in. Independent mixes can be sent to the two headphone outputs from your favorite DAW.

① USB

The USB-C port unlocks Element’s USB audio interface capabilities and enables interaction with the Darkglass Suite desktop app, allowing for software updates and access to the Darkglass IR library, containing hundreds of cabinet simulations. 

② XLR output

An XLR output with a ground lift switch provides a reliable standard connection to a mixing desk or an external audio interface for a guaranteed low-noise signal.


Inputs and Outputs Instrument In & Instrument Out

· Two 6.3 mm jacks that can be used as:
· Balanced/unbalanced instrument input and output or
· Amplifier input and speaker (through) output.

Input attenuation

0 dB / -12 dB / -30 dB

USB

A Micro USB B connector allows you to connect the pedal to PC/Mac to load cabinet simulation impulse responses to the pedal and control various other settings.

Aux In

You can connect the line/headphone out of your laptop/keyboard/mixer etc. into the 3.5 mm aux input on the Element.

Direct Output

Balanced XLR output for connecting the pedal to a microphone preamp, PA system etc.

Ground lift

Disconnects the signal ground on the Direct Output to break any ground loops. Set this switch to either position that has less noise. The switch does not affect the ¼” output.

9 – 12V DC

Use a 9-12V DC power supply (Center negative 2.1/5.5 mm barrel plug). Current consumption 250mA.

Headphones

Two 3.5 mm headphone outputs.
