Blackstar POLAR 2 Interface

The Audio Interface for Guitarists:

POLAR is THE audio interface that is specially designed to enhance your guitar DI signal in a way that brings back the coveted feel and response of playing through a real valve guitar amplifier.


Incredible Tone:

POLAR is equipped with FET instrument inputs, providing ultra-low noise and high headroom for the best sonic foundation for your guitar tone.


Feels Like A Real Amp:

“Enhance” restores the touch, feel, and response of playing through a real amp. When the Enhance switch is engaged on the instrument input, a unique circuit is introduced that mimics the input stage of a real valve amplifier, including all of it’s non-linear behaviours and characteristics.


No Digital Clipping, Set Levels With Ease:

With “Enhance” activated, you can capture guitar levels without worrying about digital clipping. This feature allows you to drive POLAR’s preamps like a real valve amp, making level adjustments easy and ensuring smooth handling of dynamic guitar signals, thus avoiding harsh tones and ruined takes.


World-Class Microphone Preamp:

Inspired by renowned vintage studio preamps, POLAR’s microphone preamps deliver warm, rich tones and authentic character, enhancing the overall depth and quality of your sound. Engaging “Enhance” gently lifts the top end of your signal, bringing out the natural clarity and air from vocal performances, acoustic instruments, and more.
