Positive Grid updates – PG’s key iOS music apps get Audiobus 3 support

While the road might not have been completely smooth, iOS musicians ought to have a lot of respect for what Positive Grid have done over the last few years. Their iOS music apps have proved to be very popular and deservedly so; they are very good at what they do. However, to then take the flagship iOS-based guitar rig modelling and port it over to the desktop world - a very competitive place - was a brave move. To then take that same technology and recreate it as a top-end modelling/profiling … [Read more...]

JamUp Pro update – Positive Grid brings some tweaks to their original guitar rig modeller app

Positive Grid took a bit of flack from some of their user-base when they launched BIAS FX - which many JamUp Pro users saw as JamUp Pro v.2' - as a new app. Some existing users were (a) concerned that their investment in JamUp Pro would eventually be lost because the app would not be maintained alongside BIAS FX, (b) that their IAP purchases in JamUp Pro would transfer across to BIAS FX and (c) that they were not provided with an 'upgrade' pricing structure to move across to BIAS FX as a reward … [Read more...]

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.

OK, so you might have to have a certain amount of … [Read more...]

BIAS FX updated – Positive Grid add Delay model import to their flagship virtual guitar rig app

While the world of iOS guitar rig sims is perhaps not quite so well populated as that of iOS synths, there are a few real crackers. Positive Grid's BIAS FX is most certainly one of them. 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.....  That's not a direction that many iOS developers have had the courage to tread.... This includes the BIAS Head, a hardware-based amplifier that provides … [Read more...]
