Darkglass Electronics Announces the Element Leave a comment

Darkglass Electronics has unveiled the Element, a stompbox-sized audio cab-sim box sporting futuristic look with extensive I/O and cabinet simulations.

Unlike most pedals, the Element has no control knobs. Instead, a trio of tactile slider potentiometers runs its parameters, each of which comes with LED indicators. Per Darkglass Electronics, that pick draws inspiration from its Hyper Luminal Compressor’s touch sensor technology.

“One comprehensive device, that out of the box offers a bank of [five] cabinet simulations, and the ability to change them through the Darkglass Suite, Bluetooth technology to listen to backing tracks while playing, rehearsing, or studying,” Darkglass Electronics detailed.

The Element enables players to connect their guitar straight to a mixing desk, an interface, or a pair (or two) of headphones. Other outputs include a balanced XLR-out for use as a DI box and a standard quarter-inch jack for use with an amp. Players may also play along to backing tracks credits to the Bluetooth support and eighth-inch input jack.

Five cabinet simulations allow for a more natural sound when running direct. Keeping with the futuristic theme, users can also connect the Element to their computer via USB-C.

The Element is available for $249. Learn more at the Darkglass Electronics website.
