Positive Grid launches BIAS Pedal tone match modeler

Positive Grid has announced the release of BIAS Pedal, a Tone Match Modeler for mobile and desktop.

BIAS Pedal

For the first time you can virtually design, modify, and tone match any distortion pedal in the world. It changes the way musicians perform, record, and create on the guitar.

BIAS Pedal Tone Match technology analyzes and compares your currently selected pedal and the sound of a target pedal. It then executes the tonal compensation and enhancements needed to make your pedal’s sound accurately match that of the target pedal.

You can easily design and modify your custom distortion pedal at the most detailed level – from the input volume, to the distortion stages and gain control, to pre and post EQ and much, much more.

BIAS Pedal seamlessly integrates with your BIAS FX arsenals. It automatically imports your custom design and Tone Match distortion pedals into BIAS FX dual signal chains and dual-amp tone.
