BIAS FX updated – Positive Grid fine-tune their flagship virtual guitar rig app – and it’s still ON SALE

Download from iTunes App Storebias fx logo 2As was the case with IK Multimedia a couple of years ago, there are some iOS musicians who are perhaps somewhat less fond of Positive Grid than their apps themselves deserve because of other aspects of the company’s approach.

I think PG would be the first to admit that they have not always got everything ‘right’ but, having had some interaction with a number of folks at PG HQ, I don’t think it is possible to fault their creative efforts or commitment to the iOS platform. This is also a company that has taken some bold steps in branching out into hardware products and in taking their iOS software into the desktop marketplace…..

BIAS FX - top-notch guitar rig modelling...  and now with the option to show a CPU usage indicator.

One thing is difficult to deny though; they make some brilliant iOS music apps. What is probably their flagship iOS music app – BIAS FX – has been updated today. The app links brilliantly with BIAS Amp that was also updated recently. For iOS guitar tone-heads, the BIAS combination is undoubtedly a very tempting one.

This update is pretty much just about routine maintenance. The underlying DSP algorithms have been further refined for improved sound, better performance and to reduce the likelihood of any audio glitches. In addition, you now get a CPU usage display so you can tell when your iOS hardware is about to hit the limits.

PG are still in birthday mode so, as I posted a week or so ago, a number of their iOS music apps are currently on sale. As such, if you get in there quick, you can pick BIAS FX up for a very competitive UK£7.99. 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, at the current price, it represents excellent value for money whether you opt for any of the additional IAP content or not.
