CREATE THE AMP OF YOUR DREAMS
DYNAMIC TONE ENGINE
For BIAS AMP 2 we worked with artists, engineers and recording studios to improve the already hyper-authentic touch response of our amplifier circuits. The result is a new playing experience, with increased touch responsiveness and dynamics. With new tubes, transformer, dynamic tone control and a completely redesigned speaker cabinet module with multi-mic capability, you now have the tools to take your tone explorations further than ever before!
BIAS MEETS CELESTION
When it comes to speakers, Celestion is the most trusted name in the history of rock and roll. Their drivers have been used on more classic songs and tones than any other manufacturer, and their impulse responses are the favorites of guitarists ranging from Pete Thorn and Scott Henderson to George Lynch. We’ve partnered with Celestion to make their IR’s easier to use than ever before, so you can forget loading individual files! Just select a custom Celestion cab and start moving the mics around – BIAS AMP 2 does the rest.
REDESIGNED AMP PACKS
Along with BIAS AMP’s built-in amp packs, BIAS AMP 2 adds two new amp packs that widen the sonic palette even further. Blues is all about gooey clean to mid-gain amps, and Bass brings amps and speaker cabs just for bass guitars. Add in all of the custom component options, and you have literally thousands of custom amps at your fingertips. There’s nothing else like it!
BIAS AMP 2 also includes nine built-in reverbs, ranging from huge halls to intimate rooms with full control over the character of the reverbs. Between the different reverb types and the extensive filtering and saturation options, BIAS AMP 2 has all your reverb needs covered.
NEW AMP MATCH
AMP Match can already match the tone of any mic’d reference amp, but we’ve made it even better in BIAS AMP 2: now matching a tone is as easy as importing an audio file! Not only that, if you aren’t all that familiar with dialing amps yourself you can ask AMP Match to guess the circuit for you. You’ll get faster and better results no matter what your skill level is, making it even easier to get to your ideal tone.
100 AMP MATCH PRESETS, DON’T SWEAT THE DETAILS
Even if you’re not interested in matching amps yourself, you can still take advantage of the power of AMP Match by connecting to the Positive Grid ToneCloud® and enjoy 100 new custom AMP Match presets. There are thousands more from artists, recording studios and guitarists from around the world.
AMP Match utilizes a collection of underlying technologies to analyze and compare your currently selected BIAS amp model and the sound of a target tube amplifier, including the speaker cabinet and microphone. It then executes the tonal compensation and enhancements needed to make your amp model’s sound accurately match that of the target tube amplifier.
