Description

BIAS Amp is a professional virtual amp designer that offers replications of 36 of the best vintage and modern amps in rock. With BIAS Amp, you have the power to create new sounds by designing your custom dream amp—swap out the tubes, preamp, transformer, tone stacks, cab, and mic, all via a powerful, intuitive interface designed for your iPad.

Close your eyes, and you’ll swear you’re hearing the real thing. With BIAS Amp, 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 Amp sounds great on bass guitar, too.

But BIAS Amp doesn’t stop there. Create totally new sounds by designing your custom dream amp. It’s as easy as tap and drag. Using BIAS Amp’s 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 that’s unachievable 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 Amp integrates seamlessly with Positive Grid's BIAS FX and JamUp guitar multi-effects apps for iPad, expanding BIAS Amp into a powerful and completely unified professional guitar system for live use, recording, and jamming. Simply tap the JamUp icon on BIAS Amp's upper bar to open your current BIAS Amp setup directly in either JamUp or JamUp Pro. JamUp adds 1 amp and 6 effects to your BIAS Amp rigs; JamUp Pro adds 6 amps and 16 stomp-box and premium rack effects - including distortion, compression, tape delay, tremolo, and spring reverb. Both JamUp and JamUp Pro include Jam player, 8-track recorder and phrase sampler, tuner, and metronome, effectively turning BIAS Amp into a recording studio and top-of-the-line practice utility.

BIAS Amp 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.

Can’t import amps into bias fx now.....great

Strizbiz

I really wish you guys would focus a little more on those of us who spent a lot of money on all 3 of your apps and all your expansions, I know you are making hardware amps now, but if those of us who bought the iOS apps to get away from dragging around hardware have to suffer maybe you just need to get out of the IOS business to focus solely on hardware. You guys are making me use AmpliTube more and more, they aren’t distracted from their IOS platform apps with hardware integration like positive grid seem to be now. Smh

Developer Response

Hi there, we are really sorry for the problem you encountered earlier. The latest version of BIAS Amp and BIAS FX are working together again. Please download the updates on AppStore and try it out. You will have no problem importing the amps now!

Terrible Crackling

thatfenderguy

I want to like this app. I own Bias FX for Mac and I haven’t had a single problem with it. However, Bias Amp is not the same case. It is incredibly slow to load and is always creating a constant crackling sound, especially when used in conjunction with GarageBand. Ive double checked my interface, cables, and guitars and every time it comes back to Bias. I don’t know why this is happening but it is incredibly unpleasant.

I have used Positive Grid’s BIAS amp design paradigm to great effect since it was introduced. It works like a champ!
What other iOS app lets you create emulations of tube amplifiers driving vintage speakers that would fry themselves in the real world but in BIAS perform their sizzling tones endlessly? Currently this app has no equal.
