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

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.... It's difficult to deny that Positive Grid make some brilliant … [Read more...]

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

As 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 … [Read more...]

JamUp Pro update – Positive Grid fix the IAP sync with BIAS FX

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...]

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

BIAS Pedal update – Positive Grid’s ‘design your own distortion pedal’ app gets some tweaks

I posted a full review of BIAS Pedal back in October. 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. Yes, for the non-guitar playing iOS musician fraternity, this might all sound a bit nerdy but the idea is not a million miles away from the modular synth apps that allow you to build your own synth designs. OK, so you might have to have a certain amount of OCD … [Read more...]

BIAS FX updated – Positive Grid add Metal Signature Pack IAP

As 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 Amp. 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. … [Read more...]
