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.
