Each amp model was carefully measured and analyzed based on the actual unit, and it was developed with Positive Grid's MESH Multi-Stage Modeling Technology, it offers significant sonic improvement than other digital amp modelers, with dead-on accuracy and tube-like touch and feel.

What's New in Version 3.1.2
- JamUp/BIAS integration bug fix.
- BIAS for iPhone is now available. BIAS is an Amp Designer, Modeler and Processor. It allows you to change preamp and power amp tube types, edit amp voicing, adjust bias, audition various transformer types, swap out loudspeakers and cabinets, move microphone placement and much, much more.
- Added BIAS/JamUp integration. JamUp (iPhone) is now fully compatible with BIAS, you can custom design your guitar/bass amp in BIAS and import into JamUp's multi-effects signal chain, with one simple finger tap.
- Added Inter-App Audio. Inter-app audio allows you to route audio and control data between apps on your device. You can use JamUp and inter-app audio to record into GarageBand and other compatible audio apps.
Now that the digital dust has settled, and I've shelled out lots of $$$ on all the amp/effect apps available, I have narrowed it down to JamUp and JamUp alone. I don't use any of the others any more and have deleted them from my iPad. It has everything I need, sounds great, and works flawlessly. Get Pro if you have Auria!
Just a note: if your guitar has single coil pickups, make sure you use an interface that connects to the pin connector and not the headphone jack. You are likely to get a lot of 60 cycle hum if you don't, and that is true with all the software amps out there (I know, I've tried them all). Of course you can use the noise gate, but personally I don't like the way a gate truncates on high-gain patches.
Distortion needs work
Volume level is ok overall. Ampkit and Amplitube struggle with good volume on clean sounds.
Clean tone is pretty good. Stock distortion, especially for solos, is very weak and fails every other note. Quite frustrating. (I haven't purchased any add-on effects)
Importing custom amps from BIAS works. There isn't a volume difference like before.
