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.

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...]
