BIAS is an Amp Designer, Modeler and Processor. It's warm, accurate and more versatile than any other modeler, processor in hardware or software ever created.

Tap once to open your BIAS amp in BIAS FX and JamUp app and add awesome multi-effects. Also check out BIAS Desktop (AAX/RTAS/VST/AU): www.positivegrid.com

BIAS starts with stunning replications of 36 of the most sought-after vintage and modern amps in rock ‘n’ roll history and then lets you customize them to respond perfectly to your unique touch and feel. Swap out the tubes, preamp, transformer, tone stacks, cab and mic—even change the tube’s bias—to create your dream amp and distinctive signature sound.

Close your eyes, and you’ll swear you’re hearing the real thing. With BIAS, you own a complete virtual collection of the most coveted and unique guitar amps of all time—some dating as far back as the 1940s. Every amp model is meticulously engineered to respond to your playing with immediacy, sensitivity and realism that make you not only sound better but also play better. And BIAS sounds great on bass guitar, too.

But BIAS doesn’t stop there. Create totally new sounds by designing your custom dream amp. It’s as easy as tap and drag. Using BIAS’ highly intuitive and lightning-fast interface, it’s child’s play to instantly swap out colorful tube preamps, lush distortion circuits, classic tone stacks, boutique power stages, custom-built transformers and cabs loaded with specially matched speakers. The result is a depth and range of tones not possible using traditional guitar amps or other modelers. Whether you’re a classic rocker, metalhead, jazz player, bluesman or singer-songwriter—and whether you understand how amplifier electronics work or not—you’ll be dialing in killer, exclusive tones in a heartbeat.

BIAS integrates seamlessly with Positive Grid's BIAS FX and JamUp guitar multi-effects apps for iPad, expanding BIAS into a powerful and completely unified professional guitar system for live use, recording and jamming. Simply tap the JamUp icon on BIAS' upper bar to open your current BIAS amp setup directly in either JamUp XT or JamUp Pro XT. JamUp XT adds 1 amp and 6 effects to your BIAS rigs. JamUp Pro XT adds fully 6 amps and 16 stomp-box and premium rack effects - including distortion, compression, tape delay, tremolo and spring reverb. Both JamUp XT and JamUp Pro XT include Jam player, 8-track recorder and phrase sampler, tuner and metronome, effectively turning BIAS into a recording studio and top-of-the-line practice utility.

BIAS works with GarageBand and other audio apps using iOS’s Inter-App Audio and Audiobus. Whether recording, songwriting, or honing your chops—at home or on the road—BIAS places unequaled tone at your fingertips.

What's New

Version 1.8.0

Hi There,

Positive Grid is proud to introduce a significant update that will make the world's best amp modeling software even better!

In this update, we added 9 new reverbs to the BIAS Amp software that will also work seamlessly with BIAS Head and BIAS Rack (firmware update required).

Here’s more info about the Reverb feature:

-NEW: Reverb types that include Room (x2), Chamber, Hall (x3), and Plate (x3).
-NEW: Reverb controls that include Reverb Type, Decay Time, Mix, Damping (which simulates absorptive material in the reverb room, rolling off high frequencies naturally), Lo and Hi Cut filters, and Dwell (which saturates the reverb return).
-We have also made changes to make noise gate and reverb as preset dependent, which means you can save different gate and reverb parameters to different amp tones accordingly.
-Various minor fixes.

Hope you’ll enjoy it! To learn more, please head over to:

Customer Reviews

Exemplary!

Colm Donnelly

So far, quite a few digital amp modellers for iOS have promised lifelike amp response, and so many have either fallen short or have been lacking in features.

Bias, however bucks the trend - it's fully functional out of the box, with plenty of baseline models to start with, lifelike amp response, massive tone and a myriad of opportunities to tweak. The user interface is, unlike many others, delightfully straightforward and the whole process of making a custom amp is quite simple if you have a decent grasp of audiological terminology. I am deeply impressed!

Fantastic piece of software. In conjunction with the iRig HD, this software is good enough to gig/practise with. Highly recommended for guitar players. I also have the desktop version and the iPad version is just as good, and the fact that it is mobile might even make the iPad version better.
You can also share the amps that you have designed through Positive Grid's cloud based 'tone cloud', which means that you can then download created amps onto your desktop version and use them there with your chosen DAW.

Amazing!

This app is the perfect way to get your tone from an I pad... I own a Marshall mg100hdfx and I run it into a deep bass 2x10 cab... That tone is almost impossible to get from anything else but I got it nailed with this app. The option of going for a solid state power section and rectifier really helped me get the valve state sound that other apps miss out on. I know that isn't for everyone( and that is why they have so much choice in the app) but it's what I wanted and now I have it
