BIAS Pedal update – Positive Grid’s ‘design your own stompbox’ app gets modulated

I posted a full review of BIAS Pedal back in October 2015. BIAS Pedal is Positive Grid's iOS music app that allows you to design your own distortion pedal in much the same way that BIAS Amp allows you to design your own guitar amplifier.
