BIAS FX updated – Positive Grid add support for new BIAS Pedal app

Download from iTunes App Storebias fx logo 2As I posted back in April, Positive Grid created a bit of a splash with their new BIAS FX app when it was first released. The app is undoubtedly a step up in terms of the processing and sound from PG’s JamUp Pro (although that is still very good in its own right) and links brilliantly with BIAS Amps. For iOS guitar tone-heads, the BIAS combination is undoubtedly a very tempting one.

The app has had a number of updates since release, adding new features and a number of IAP expansion packs. However, a couple of more recent updates have added support for iOS9 and for the upcoming BT-4 Bluetooth MIDI pedalboard hardware (and which I reviewed on the Music App Blog last week).

BIAS FX offers flexible signal chains including a dual chain option.

However, a further BIAS FX update has appeared on the App Store today taking the app to v.1.3. If you are a real tone-geek, then the reason for this update will ceryainly appeal; it provides support within BIAS FX for a new app within the BIAS family – BIAS Pedal – and that is also released today. BIAS pedal takes the ‘design your own’ approach found in BIAS Amps and applies it to overdrive, distortion and fuzz pedals. If you always fancied building a custom distortion stompbox but don’t have the electronics skills to do is safely (!) now’s your chance to do it in software in a safe and friendly fashion. I’ve been lucky enough to get access to a pre-release version of BIAS Pedal so a full review of the new app will follow later today :-)

If you are just making your first steps with mobile virtual guitar rigs, BIAS FX is undoubtedly a brilliant piece of software and would be a great place to start….  You can check out the full review here but, as BIAS FX (along with a number of other Positive Grid apps) is currently on sale for just UK£14.99, it represents very good value for money whether you opt for any of the additional IAP content or not.
