Your tone is your identity – and sometimes nothing less than a custom setup can deliver the goods.
BIAS AMP 2 is the ultimate virtual amp designer, authentically recreating the tone and feel of real tube amplifiers, while allowing you to mix and match components to create your ideal amp. You can use Amp Match to clone the tone of real hardware or a guitar track, or connect to the ToneCloud® to gain access to thousands of custom amps from artists and recording studios, or upload your own custom tones to the cloud.
BIAS AMP 2 represents a revolution in virtual amplifier design, providing the tools to take your ultimate guitar tone with you anywhere, from the studio to the stage and back again.
WHAT’S NEW IN BIAS AMP 2
DYNAMIC TONE ENGINE
For BIAS AMP 2 we worked with artists, engineers and recording studios to improve the already hyper-authentic touch response of our amplifier circuits. The result is a new playing experience, with increased touch responsiveness and dynamics. With new tubes, transformer, dynamic tone control and a completely redesigned speaker cabinet module with multi-mic capability, you now have the tools to take your tone explorations further than ever before!
BIAS MEETS CELESTION
When it comes to speakers, Celestion is the most trusted name in the history of rock and roll. Their drivers have been used on more classic songs and tones than any other manufacturer, and their impulse responses are the favorites of guitarists ranging from Pete Thorn and Scott Henderson to George Lynch. We’ve partnered with Celestion to make their IR’s easier to use than ever before, so you can forget loading individual files! Just select a custom Celestion cab and start moving the mics around – BIAS AMP 2 does the rest.
REDESIGNED AMP PACKS
Along with BIAS AMP’s built-in amp packs, BIAS AMP 2 adds two new amp packs that widen the sonic palette even further. Blues is all about gooey clean to mid-gain amps, and Bass brings amps and speaker cabs just for bass guitars. Add in all of the custom component options, and you have literally thousands of custom amps at your fingertips. There’s nothing else like it!
BIAS AMP 2 also includes nine built-in reverbs, ranging from huge halls to intimate rooms with full control over the character of the reverbs. Between the different reverb types and the extensive filtering and saturation options, BIAS AMP 2 has all your reverb needs covered.
NEW AMP MATCH
AMP Match can already match the tone of any mic’d reference amp, but we’ve made it even better in BIAS AMP 2: now matching a tone is as easy as importing an audio file! Not only that, if you aren’t all that familiar with dialing amps yourself you can ask AMP Match to guess the circuit for you. You’ll get faster and better results no matter what your skill level is, making it even easier to get to your ideal tone.
New RTA EQ
Even though our ears are the most valuable tools we have when creating tones, sometimes it’s really helpful to be able to look at a tone visually. The new RTA EQ module displays a realtime frequency analysis of the signal running through it, making it easy to spot a problem frequency range or see what affect your circuit tweaks are having on the overall guitar sound. You won’t have to ask yourself “what is the frequency of that low midrange bump I’m hearing?”, because the RTA EQ will show it to you.
100 New Custom Amps On ToneCloud®
BIAS Amp 2.0 now comes with 100 new custom amps from a wide variety of musical styles and genres!!
Don’t forget that you’re NEVER limited to a “stock” amp with BIAS Amp 2.0. Other guitar platforms offer you one version of a classic amp circuit, but 2.0’s component emulation engine allows nearly infinite variation. With these 100 new custom amps it doesn’t matter what kind of music you play or what kind of tone you’re looking for - chances are good that there’s a relevant custom amp patch on the ToneCloud® waiting for you to download and try it out.
BIAS Amp represents an entirely new concept in guitar sound and instead of providing a fixed number of amp models, the tone-creation possibilities are virtually infinite. BIAS Amp features Tone Cloud, an amp sharing platform a where users can easily download artist’s signature amps, or try out the latest and most popular matched amp models created by their fellow guitarists from around the world.
BIAS FX INTEGRATION
BIAS Amp was designed to integrate directly with BIAS FX, Positive Grid’s flagship amp-and-effects processing environment. All of the custom amplifiers you create with BIAS Amp 2 are automatically available in BIAS FX, providing a foundation for your ideal finished tone. Start with an amp that fits your playing like a glove in BIAS Amp 2, and then open it in BIAS FX and add pedal and racks effects.
